    First Reaction to Changes

    I'm having trouble with attaching a profile photo. I have tried for several hours to load one, but have been unsuccessful so far. Other than that, I like the changes.

    Emergency Nurses Week 2016

    I wanted to be an ER nurse, but I got sick instead, So I was forced to go to Plan B. I'm thankful I'm at least able to be on Allnurses. That makes me happy.

    Emergency Nurses Week 2016

    During a past emergency event I had as a patient, the Phlebotomist was unable to gain access to my vein, so an ER nurse pulled up a chair next to the gurney I was on, studied my veins, and got immediate access to a good bleeding vein without giving me any discomfort whatsoever.

    The Obesity Problem in Rural America

    This was me when I was a schools driver. I wore a size 6 then. I gained a few pounds during nursing school, but after I graduated, I went to Weight Watchers and took the extra weight off. While I was actively looking for a job in the nursing field, I got extremely ill, and was put on massive doses of Prednisone. I blew up to 305 pounds. I have managed to lose about 35 pounds, but no matter how hard I try now, the weight just will not leave this old body of mine now, so since I'm in a motorized chair and am unable to exercise due to pulmonary disease that takes my breath away upon any type of exertion, I have decided to make the most of my life the best way I am able to. I keep smiling and keep a positive attitude.

    (Remember) Walking In the Sand

    This is one phenominally written article Marla. It has a wealth of wisdom in it. I hope you win.

    Young, Thin, and Cute New Hires

    I havn't seen any posts about wisdom. Wisdom comes with age, and many older nurses, and granted, s select few younger ones in their 20s and 30s have gained a lot of wisdom. It helps with dealing with a difficult patient, because they have had more experience with difficult patients. I believe they also have a more mellow attitude. That too comes with experience.
