1) My husband. Truly my better half. We have been through so much, good and bad. He's the only one I could ever want.
2) My son. The miracle, the joy, the whole package that he is. It sounds arrogant and crazy, but I know he is destined for greatness.
3) My job in corrections healyh services. They need me, and they bring me purpose, and as many as four days off a week.
4) My dad. He shaped and tamed my character into somethin far better than what it was.
I hemorrhaged at work with an ectopic pregnancy. I was doing a med pass for 30 at a SNF. I had blood on my shoes, but I still was passing pills before I noticed. It was, in retrospect, 8/10 pain. The whole "must be unable to speak" to be in severe pain is a bunch of crap. Between my med pass and emergency surgery was less than 90 minutes. Listen yo your patients or risk killing them.

Sometimes people I like suggest dumb things to deal with stress. Ypou know, like when my friends say, "Hey, let's go to O'Halligan's. It's nickel shot night!"
No... I'm pretty sure if we go to O'Halligan's we're going to die. Let's deal with the task at hand. If you're stressed because of the work environment, distractions are Band-Aids, not solutions.
It's the individual's choice to live or die. This is a ridiculous and ancient topic. Don't like the future of hospice? There are options. If you don't like abortions, don't get one. If you don't like same sex marriage, avoid marrying someone of the same sex. If you don't like PAS, don't do it. I'm not some edgy liberal; I just don't participate in things I don't believe in.
I think you mean another word other than disregard. Also, I was kidding, kind of. A lot of nursing and activities around it are about emotional masturbation, so I like to laugh at my insensitivity. Also, cashmere.
