Apparently my posts have been VERY misunderstood by some. I never said I don't want responses. I stated that I felt put off. I did not make any YOU statements. It's how I feel. Being able to calmly state how you feel and then provide a better explanation is a *good* quality in successful communication.
That being said let me rephrase my "validation" comment. I feel/think a certain way about the situation and wanted to know if these feelings/thoughts were justified. A few seem to think so, a few don't. I genuinely wanted to know if this should be brought up to my work for the safety of my patient only. I am completely fine with disagreement on the matter. Please do not equate me with the askholes who come on here for advice, then attack when not agreed with.
I have previously posted about my pt's wife. I was venting. It helps. But it was absolutely not to get advice on if I should quit. I don't MIND advice. It just wasn't the point of certain posts. You are making it seem as if I come on here and ask if I should leave my job, then just complain more when I haven't yet. That is not the case. I will gladly listen to advice, but ultimately only I know what is best for me. I was simply sharing crazy experiences of mine in the very interesting world of PDN. I find this to absolutely be the appropriate forum to do so.
I posted once in the middle of a mild panick attack. I was in the beginning of a 12 hour shift with NO way of leaving. I turned to the only place I could think of in the moment, and I'm certainly glad I did. As much as you want to shame me for "complaining" about my pt (inaccurate description btw) I felt SO MUCH better just being able to get it out and hear support. I HAVE taken advice. I took some PTO. I reached out to my doctor AND my old psychologist. JUST when I was about to be able to get some help, all this with Covid happened, and Dr. appointments are pushed back, now. And I AM actively researching other cases.
So I will continue to post. I accept all responses. I understand how social media works. I'm not going to tell people to not respond unless...like so many others do. But if I feel misunderstood and put off, I will say so if I feel the need. And I believe I did so in a respectful way.
