Stuck in a Rut


 There hasn't been a lot of posting because there hasn't been anything, in my opinion, to talk about. I get up, go to work, come back and sleep a coma. It's been the same old same old nothing seems new and fascinating and cool any more. Perhaps that is where the problem is, I am stuck in a rut.

  It's not like things aren't happening around me, but perhaps the problem is lately the same old issues keeping popping up and they never seem to get fixed. I have been reading a book written by a nurse, her story spans from the mid 1980's to present day and it was stunning to see that even in another country and another time that the nurses are plagued by the same problems we are to this day. It was both affirming and frustrating to see, it was nice to know that it wasn't just my unit or this city that these problems keep cropping up. At the same time it is frustrating to know that we, as nurses, have been fighting with the same issues for over twenty years!

  I'm not sure what the right Tx for this little "mood" I am finding myself in lately. I've been trying as hard as I can to separate myself from work when I am not there, which is challenging when your phone is ringing everyday with messages from staffing cheerfully asking if you could find some way to work just one more night. 

  A friend at work gave me a little bit of cynical advice, "Take care of yourself because in the end you are all you have to rely on and no one is going to do it for you." A little mercenary, but when I sat down to think about it she was right. I see it everyday, the bewildered spouse who suddenly finds themselves hovering over a loved ones bed in my unit. How many times have I gently told that person that they should go home and take care of themselves while we take care of their loved. I know what my friend is saying is in the end we all need to know how to rely on ourselves. There is no crime in leaning on a friend or spouse, but to be able to stand on your own when needed.

  So I'm taking her advice and finding better ways to take care of myself. The first step to that is turning off the ringer on my phone, and picking up a good book and a cup of coffee. After I get done with my book, I'll try and figure out the rest of the plan.

  1. I know how you feel... sometimes I feel like I'm just blogging the same thing over and over and over and over... :(
    You're friend is right. I've even been trying to do the same. I don't know why it so hard to make time for ourselves???
    Hope to see you on Monday for Med Monday!!! :)

  3. I'm so glad you turned the ringer off. It can be so hard to say no. Back in the days before I had kids I discovered that if I worked more than 48 hours of night shift I got sick. Every time!

  4. hi - i hope you'll forgive me gatecrashing your blog. I'm writing a screenplay (part of a PhD by practice) and i'm looking for some medical info to help me write a scene: the treatment of someone struck by lightning (also something about the relationship between nurses and porters). Is there any way you could point me in the right direction - or in your busy schedule you could help?
    best wishes

  10. That is what I also what I asks myself sometimes. But it is not for myself but for my own family. I am working as an Occupational Health Nurse abroad. I am taking care other people but I could not even give care to my own family when they are sick. But what can we do? It is our calling. Oh Nurses!

  28. HOW TO GET BLANK ATM CARD AND WITHDRAW
    UNLIMITED CASH
    This is the happiest moment of my life having no longer to worry about paying bills as i have been settled for life. A lot has been said about Atm hacking and blank card for cash withdrawal but it all seemed like a myth to me until i eventually lost my job few months back and the world seemed to be moving backwards. I went online in search of jobs and means to an end and there i found comments about harryblankatmharckers and how they deliver this card in less than 7 days with no risk involved and a far much lesser price compared to what the card itself can give you, i then made contact and purchase one from them with almost my last dollars I took the risk and in exactly 6 days latter my card and a manual was delivered to my home address here in California and that same evening i used the card was able to take out $5000 for a start its been just 3 weeks and my life has taken a new shape. I simply want to say thank you to this electronic company and help spread their fame abroad. If you ever are in need of this card contact them via email :dicksonharryblankatmharckers@gmail.com .....
    Don't mail them if you not really ready for this card is gonna cost you money to buy the card note that,they offer card to firms, orphans,individual and business personnel's mail them immediately .....
