|Hi again Josie
It is so nice to see you here. You are a comrade to me in this new/old norm. LOL
A lot has changed for me. I left my what seemed like my life long profession to go into hospice nursing. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking. With the economy I voluntarily left an outstanding paying job, to become a brand new nurse in a field I had no clue about !!!
But, losing my dad and mom changed everything for me. Holidays mean nothing, guilt of thinking I did not do enough or give enough to my mom. Even now when I go through the medications for my patients, I wonder why hospice told me to not give my mom her thyroid med anymore when my own patients get it. She had no thyroid since she was 20 and needed those pills her whole life. So, I feel I failed her in that as well (not a good enough advocate).
I am a loner now, I don't relate much. My patients love me though !!! I can very much relate to them and I guess that is a good thing.
Hugs to you as well !!!!
