Keeping 'calm' has been difficult during this stretch of work. It's been crazy/rough/nutty/heavy is an understatement. Trying to do what's best for everyone (patients, families & staff) is difficult. It's been a mentally AND physically exhausting time. I chose to nurse (instead of be a 'doctor' or 'pharmacist') because I want to take care and do my very best to get these sick people better or give them a comfortable end with their loved ones with them in a quiet environment. Maybe it's time to move on...or things need to change. I hate the politics that come with this job. But I guess it's like that in any other job. I need to do what's best for me.
I can't wait till my stretch is over, my exam is over, and I can spend more time with my family and being creative. Scrapbooking/Project Life has been my stress reliever. I'm in need of that...like now.
