    I've had enough.

    One of the hardest things I had to learn when dealing with depression was how to be kind to myself. When going through this negative thoughts can take over and you can't see the forest for the trees. See your doctor, get started on antidepressants and find a good counselor and then give yourself time and remember be kind to yourself, it's not your fault and life can be but things do get better.

    Feeling insecure at times

    Normal feelings for most Nurses I would say. I have been in PACU for 15 years and am still learning, which is what makes a good Nurse. The nurse that thinks they know it all is a nurse who will potentially make a terrible mistake, that sort scares me, rather work with folk who know they don't know everything.

    Fentanyl Consent?

    Apparently this man couldn't think of anything else to complain about. If you had not given him the Fentanyl would probably complain that he was denied pain relief. Unfortunately in the PACU setting patients often are confused and forgetful but can often fixate on something they believe did or didn't happen. Feel your Manager should be more supportive of you and your nursing decisions.
