    Threw out back, what’s next?

    A good chiropractor can help you . Mine, for instance. I ruined my back years ago at the beside and a chiropractor helped me walk after that incident. My current chiro I see whenever I need to. He uses an instrument that is not painful and doesn’t do the same thing hands on does and for me works much better. Between him and exercise I walk without pain, for which I am thankful. I was anti-chiro once upon a time until I needed one. Consumers need to research chiropractors and choose wisely, but they can be beneficial.

    Frustrating Nurse Family Members

    I usually try to not let people know I am a nurse. Sometimes I am not successful, like when I tell nursing students wearing their stethoscopes in a bbq restaurant while eating bbq that that is not the right thing to do.......but, as a patient I am pretty good at pretending to not know a single thing. Some days, that is not hard, and I may not be pretending....

    And, the Nazis killed those who did not fit their description of worthy individuals. In addition to the Jews they murdered, they murdered those who were mentally handicapped, physically handicapped, mentally ill, Christians and others who helped the Jews, such as Corrie ten Boom’s family and others. You may be liberal, but by your postings you articulate Nazi principles.

    You do not understand who the Nazis were and what they did.

    Please stay out of healthcare professions as a career. Your suggestions invoke memories of history (think Nazi Germany) and current practices in some countries. (And, without realizing it, Godwin’s Law is where I went.)

    To kill or not to kill... another person dream?

    Yowzers! I'm glad you got that bag and are doing much better! Good luck with the criminal case. It sounds like it will take that to wake both the girl and her parents up. I kinda actually feel sorry for the girl because obviously her parents are blind to her need to be disciplined, and that sets her up for a very harsh future.

    I am so glad you are okay, or at least in the process of become okay! How absolutely terrifying and awful of that girl. Perhaps a discussion with her and her parents is called for. And, I think talking to your contacts at the schools is a definite need. She needs to be reigned in before she allows her personal beliefs to cause harm to another person. And, the audacity of her essay...sheesh!

    What Nurses really Want to Say When They Chart

    Witchcraft Resurgence

    Yes, sometimes when people pray we hear a voice. It may be audible, as at times it has been for me, or, it may be a sense or knowledge in the depth of my soul that tells me I am to do something or am headed in the right direction or perhaps, the wrong direction. Because I am a Christ follower, my prayers and meditation on Scripture serve as a mode of communication as well. It sounds weird to some, and I get that. But I can assure you that I am not clinically insane.

    That isn't unusual at all where I live. My dad, although he passed 50+ years ago, would still be called "Daddy" in all probability if he were alive today. It is seen (at least in our family ) as a title of respect and affection to our male parent.

    Is this a self mixed formula, or one with proportions already determined? Is "manuka honey" a particular kind? I from time to time work in a mobile clinic in Eastern Ukraine---something like this could be so helpful for any of the patients who have wounds...but, the seaweed might be a bit of a challenge. That being said, is there a reasonable substitute for that?

    Well, in some countries hospitals are not safe, doctors buy their degrees, and care is minimal at best.

    Meeting AllNurses in Real Life?

    I have to laugh, but yep, me too! (Especially if some of the members are former and present students of mine.........)

    Everyone is white?

    Yes to all of this. And, the term "pasty" is offensive to some, and is indeed, impolite.

    Everyone is white?

    If you were hired, how is there discrimination? Just because a group of people are of a majority race/color, it doesn't mean discrimination. It could mean they are the best qualified for their positions. I have been the only white female in an African village hospital/clinic. I have been only one of 5 white Americans in an Asian city who worked in healthcare. I have been the only white person on a unit in a hospital in a major metropolitan city in the United States and the nurses refused to speak English at the nurses' station. So what. There are worse things in life, I promise. If you have been passed over for promotion because of your race , then you might have a legitimate complaint. If it's simply because the facility head honchos are white, and discrimination can't be proven and you set out to complain about your perceptions, you will only encounter trouble.

    Resign first or wait until I find out if I'm fired?

    In some states you cannot receive unemployment if you quit. So, take that into account. Don't assume the worst, if you have no disciplinary actions , such as verbal or written warnings, in your file. Hearing them out sounds like a good idea. Who knows----you may be offered a great opportunity, that if you quit, you will miss out on! I wish you the best!
