    Depression. Despair. Suicide.

    I heard someone say it is hard for nurses to get mental health help because it shows on their back ground checks and will cause them to not get hired. Anyone know if this is true? If so, this is really sad, and seems like it would put patients more at risk because nurses would not seek care they need.

    COVID-19 ICU, The 12 Commandments for Front Line Clinicians

    This is pretty funny! However, once I started gargling Listerine every time I came home, I quit catching colds. And flu. For like 3 years. Always Listerine though, because alcoholism runs in my family. No moonshine or vodka for me 😁

    COVID-19 ICU, The 12 Commandments for Front Line Clinicians

    Why does it make your lung look like that? Anyone have a picture of a lung that just had a non-COVID type of pneumonia? I'd like to compare, but can't find it on the internet. Thanks!
  4. Don't believe everything you learn in public school. Confederates wanted to succeed from the Union, which was within their rights. The Union did not want them too. Period. Confederates were no more traitors or white supremacists than people in the Union. Northerners had slaves, too. Did you not hear about how a George Washington statue was knocked down because he also had slaves? Civil war had nothing to do with slavery. That is just what they want you to believe. If Confederate lives no longer matter because they aren't still here, then King's life does not matter because he is not here, and George Floyd's life does not matter because he is not here. I don't know about you, but I don't believe this.

    COVID-19 ICU, The 12 Commandments for Front Line Clinicians

    It's horrible that you all had to go through that. I can't believe our country is in the horrible state that it is in right now. I can't believe we weren't more prepared. I can't believe it is getting worse, and the news seems to be pretending that it is not. Great advice from you all! I'm praying for you.
  6. It seems like the world is turning into a scary place for the police. I hear that they are trying to "defund" them, and also making it harder for them to win lawsuits against them. It seems like they are setting things up so that no one will want to be a policeman. It seems like it would have been a scary enough job before all of this happening. Makes you wonder what the world will look like 30 years from now at this rate.

    Your Thoughts on COVID-19 Vaccine

    How long do you think it will take after a vaccine comes out before we are able to know if it is truly safe?

    Your Thoughts on COVID-19 Vaccine

    What are y'all's thoughts on the many COVID-19 vaccines being tested? Safe vs unsafe. Which one do you think will be most effective? Do you think COVID-19 will mutate faster than the vaccines could be made? Any other thoughts. https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20200610/covid-19-latest-updates

    Living as an older individual with comorbidities

    You did good. I enjoyed what you had to say, Hillbilly RN. It is sad, but know we are struggling together. You described a lot of what I and my family feel, and our anxieties as well.

    Living as an older individual with comorbidities

    Most of us don't feel this way about your life, Hillbilly RN. I appreciate the years of service you gave. I wish we could have been smarter about this from the start and saved the thousands of lives that we possibly could have. I have family members in the same boat as you. I shop for and care for them. They are my top priority. I think we will get a vaccine, my only worry is that it won't be as quick as I like. Don't lose hope. Don't give up. I wish I could see your wild animals. I have neglected mine and the feeders have run out, causing a rebellion from the raccoons that my trash cans tend to see the worst of.

    I agree with this post. Maybe you should see a mental health professional, Hit with the Ladies. Could do you a lot of good.

    Living as an older individual with comorbidities

    Yes, I get your point. Some should move on back to normal. Go around without a mask, forget social distancing, pretend everything is okay. Then you will find out how very wrong you are as you die off. The caring, wise population will be left, relieved of your presence. The world will be a more kind and compassionate place. You're talking about evolution. Survival of the fittest. I get it.

    Nursing Homes. The bodies are just pilling up.

    Why not with their families? When did we decide they weren't worth our time? They are smarter than us, wiser than us, and loved and cared for us. They earned the same. They deserve a better more honored place in society than you do. Where can we store you? BTW: a hit with WHAT ladies?

    Covid-19: The Guilt of the Work From Home Nurse

    I do this, but worse. I catch myself constantly checking for cases to have come up in my prison as if that justifies my leaving, as if I need something more than what's going on to justify it. Then I feel guilty because I really don't want anyone to get sick, and I pray for my coworkers and patients every day. Does that make me an awful person? I'm trying to do what's right, why is it so hard to figure out what that is anymore?

    Covid-19: The Guilt of the Work From Home Nurse

    This sounds like my situation. I work per diem at a prison. My mother was horrified at the COVID-19 news, she has multiple health conditions, and I left pretty much for her. It is scary. I feel guilty all the time, all my coworkers are working hard, and I sit at home, busy, but missing work a lot. But how much more guilty would I feel if something happened to my family? I hear that pandemics are horrible once they hit a prison. I don't think there could be anyway that I could avoid bringing it home if I stayed at work.

    AT A LOSS - COVID High Risk Nurse

    Will there come a time when they CAN force you to work? Or where your license will have corrective action if you quit work when the nation is counting on you? On the news they are comparing it to WW2. Can they "draft" nurses, or arrest them for refusing to work?
