"Would you be able to give yourself an injection if you had to?
Haha !" ""
This brought a wry but pleasant grin to my being . . . .
I was on haemodialysis for 6 years & 26 days ; and self cannulated 3x a week . . . large bore blunt needles , arterial & venous !
It is such a pleasure to be free from the threat of a thick clumsy nurse ! (roughly 1 in ten just can't do it . . )
Now , I do vitamin B12 , intramuscular , deep ~ when you do it yourself , you don't feel a thing . has to be plunged deep to be effective .
Vaccinations , inc. Covid, Flu, etc. are intramuscular . . .

I think in my time on ask, I reckon I know you well enough to know. You’d flirt with your nurse if she was pretty enough ☺️😅😂🥰

awwww tbh I’ve never had a nurse since birth, cept for the dentist assistant, would dress up for me when I’m injured J 🥹🤒🤕

I wish I had become a doctor. Idk if I’ll ever truly be happy or feel as secure financially

Well, your choice ofc, but, personally I find this job too stressful. Thereis a sad statistics of alcoholism level among doctors, which says a lot how hard is that. And in general I can't imagehow I, for example, conduct surgery, or just make injections as my mum did being nurse. I just can't.

When you were a kid, how did you answer the question, “what do you want to be when you grow up?”

I remembered I answer that question that I want to be a nurse because I want to take care of people who are sick. Pero ngayon, ang layo ng course na kinuha ko hahahaha.

Have you considered going to therapy? (Not calling you a crazy person, I swear! Lol SheeeeeeEeeesh) 🤪😝 Have you ever gone? If so, what was your experience like?

I have been on and off for over ten years. I have a psychiatric nurse at the moment and she's one of the better ones I've had. I've made some progress with her and I feel I can speak to her openly. I've had some that I definitely couldn't speak about my darkest thoughts with cause I didn't trust them or their "advice" was just stupid like just have a cup of tea or run a bath 🥴

Walaikum Salam. Nothing is more noble than serving the sick so if you want to do that no education is needed just doing it is whats needed. Don't know much about degrees but i do know that doesn't matter if youre a doctor or nurse or a peon in a hospital you are way better than the rest of us.

Do you know who named you and why did they choose the name you were given?

akciMMicka’s Profile Photo⚜️ m o n i c a ⚜️
My name was cast in stone even before I was conceived. Upon my older brother's birth, a nurse mentioned to my parents that the next will be an 'Aisyah'. And my parents heeded her wisdom. In addition, 'Aisyah' is the name of one of Prophet Muhammad's (peace ve upon him) wives. So, it's an honorable name. Alhamdulillah.

How often do you drink water?

It varies. I drink when I'm thirsty. I keep a water bottle on my desk so I can take a sip whenever I feel the urge. I'm guessing I drink about two-three liters a day. I generally sneak in some tea in the mornings and beers on hockey nights.
16 cups of water per day? Holy hell. Just me, but that seems like too much. If you view water as something to "get over with" and binge on, then you should maybe re-evaluate what water is and what it does in your body. If you're slamming most of that in the morning, most of it will probably just go right through you. If your piss is totally clear, stop drinking water. It should be light yellow. I prefer to just carry a water jug around with me all day and nurse it, and fill it up several times per day, or down a cup of water if I am feeling particularly thirsty.
I drink a quart of water with breakfast, one with lunch and one with dinner. I drink an additional quart after I work out -- be it in before or after lunch. I drink little else except a large cup of coffee in the morning. After definitely being dehydrated for decades of my life, I cannot remember the last time I actually felt thirsty. It's usually good practice to have a glass of water next to your desk at work. Take sips every so often to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. Also, since it will fill up your bladder, drinking water regularly while at work allows you to take your eyes off the screen and go for a walk to stretch your legs on the way to the bathroom.
Within an hour of waking up I'm in for about 32 ounces of water then I steadily drink water throughout the day. It's not uncommon for me to have 1 to 2 gallons throughout the day and when summer hits because my job is physical 2 to 4 gallons isn't out of the ordinary with some packets of liquid IV mixed in. I don't drink coffee or energy drinks. The only time I have soda is a ginger ale usually mixed with alcohol. I'll have a nice tea though.
At work waiting at the water cooler, I have 3 mins to get a drink and get back to my desk and take another call. A new trainee has turned up and is filling a 1 litre+ water bottle. After 90 second I think eff this, and head back to my desk with 100ml left in my reused Innocent bottle. 90 minutes later it is lunch, and she is there filling up the bottle again. This time I can wait for a bit of water. I know they say keep hydrated, but this seems to be literally taking the proverbial. I think I heard on one of these Michael Moseley things a doctor saying 'drink when you are thirsty.' Which I do. Are people over hydrating these days? I honestly wouldn't have time to be going to the toilet every half hour, so I don't know where these people are putting it all.

Have you had any experience of taking care of elderly people? Whether you worked in elderly care or in your personal life. How did / do you find it? 🧓

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I lived with my grandparents for a while when they were alive, and helped them. I also acted as a home nurse when my grandmother was recovering from colon cancer. I like the elderly. I'd rather take care of seniors than babies.

Can I find a job in the UK if I don't have references from previous employers? I want to work as a nurse?

Doubt you could as they ask for previous work employment references as how can known you are right for job role without the references I think that in every job role unless you have never a job before

Do you agree with the saying "it's a bad day, not a bad life"?

daveb2186’s Profile PhotoDynamarmite
For the most part. I do think for some people there’s more bad than good or decent days but I believe in finding reasons to live and smile every day even if that reason is tiny. I couldn’t until I’d got a good combo of meds and a nurse I felt comfortable with but without trying, things won’t ever improve 🙂

I really don't want the smear test done I'm not sexually active and mum booked me in to have it done and I really don't want it done 😭

I assume you are over the age of eighteen as it’s a smear test so it is not her decision, it’s yours. If it is an embarrassment thing then I would try and push through it and get the test because it could save your life. Even if you’re not sexually active it could pick up on any abnormalities. Nurses do not care what it looks like, they are too busy trying to get what is needed and besides, they see bodies all day every day. Maybe you could talk any concerns you have about the test with a nurse first? If it’s still not something you feel you can do right now, it is your decision. I’m not getting mine done yet for other reasons but it would be so much easier if they found a way for us to do the test ourselves or have boyfriend or trusted friends do it for us 🤷🏻‍♀️

I'm sure someone has discussed with you the pros and cons of being a traveling nurse. Whats your thoughts?

Actually we were talking about this the other day .. I’m thinking of being a travel nurse 👩‍⚕️ it sounds exciting a chance to travel and help others and being away from the comfort zone but being away from family and friends wouldn’t be great 👍

The cervical cancer screening is retarded I don't want it done and I don't want to show any part of my body to strangers

I remember my first time having the screening done. It's understandable you feel scared and vulnerable - I did too! But it was really quick and the nurse helped me to feel more at ease and talked me through it. They see a lot of women for screening and have seen it all before. It's a few minutes which could save your life and identify any pre-cancerous cells before they even become cancer. I'd argue that is worth the momentary discomfort but it is your body and your choice at the end of the day.
The cervical cancer screening is retarded I dont want it done and I dont want to

I had the cervical screening test letter in the post I really don't want that done I don't know what to do?

You can make appointments to discuss any concerns that you have or to reassure you. If you’re not wanting to because you feel embarrassed, then remember they see so many that they will barely bat an eyelid at you. I just had my letter too. I’m not having mine for different reasons but if you can go at least to talk about it with a nurse, please do 💓

Have you ever disagreed with your doctors diagnosis for you?

Shannon678900’s Profile PhotoShannon
🏥 Yes. I used to be hospitalised with vomiting for days on end, including vomiting blood (hematitis, and gastro peresis) . It started happening in the early 1990s and by the early 2000s was happening around three times a year and involved at least a week in hospital plus a week at home recovering.
👨🏻‍⚕️ A consultant had proposed in the early days that I had autonomic neuropathy but this was never picked up on/taken seriously when I moved to Scotland.
🏥 At first the general belief there was I was somehow destroying myself through excess and not managing my diabetes, despite my blood sugars being ok when I was first admitted to the hospital (they got worse due to the time it used to take to get new diabetic patients written up for insulin) and my blood alcohol being zero.
👨🏻‍⚕️ One doctor thought I was entirely to blame and discharged me from the ward while I was still puking, getting the nurse to ring a taxi to pick me up.
🏥 (With a different hat on, sometime later I found myself at a hospital meeting where I raised the issue about insulin and I believe they took it seriously enough to change procedures, though I don’t know for sure).
🍳 Anyway eventually I was formally tested for autonomic neuropathy. I had to eat a meal of radioactive eggs and radioactive orange juice and get spun round in machines and so on. They discovered that I did indeed have this condition, explaining nausea, dizziness, fainting and vomiting.
💊 I’m now medicated and have only had the hematitis twice in the decade since, though I still get dizzy/faint/nauseus.
🚕 I sometimes feel I would like to get that doctor who discharged me, still puking, into a taxi, all those years ago and whack his head against a wall, metaphorically, and remind him that he should believe patients more often.

🕳 a hundred! Take this new one
I can't wait to release this bird
And watch it take flight.
I've taken time to nurse and nurture it
Like it's mother might.
And as the time comes to let fly,
My patient, into the light.
I am at once amazed and in awe
With such a beautiful sight.

🤗 how’s the cold going, getting any better yet Nat? 🥶

Bearhead01’s Profile PhotoGilbert Thomas
Yeah I feel mostly better on the cold front, a bit sniffly first thing when I wake up but good apart from that. My cough and chest tightness is still hanging about though 🥺 I’m getting an asthma review with my nurse Monday so hopefully they can tweak my inhalers or something so I can get my lungs back!

😇 What do you do to free yourself from bad thoughts?

Spend time with my animals, facetime my best friend, chat to my favourite humans, self care routine, sleep, asmr or podcast, breathing techniques, ice, listen to the rain, use the 5-4-3-2-1 or 333 techniques, text my nurse and if all of the above fails, I take a valium and that helps

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was child, I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up. I was named after a nurse, after all. That dream progressed to wanting to become a doctor.
(But then I became a teacher.)
I still want to be a doctor. I wish I can do something significant to help those patients who don't have enough funds to have themselves hospitalized, and also those who are afflicted by COVID-19.
Praying for everyone's safety. Please be well. 🤍

(sent on 1/16/22) as a child, what did you want to do with your life? have things gone to plan or changed?

I wanted to be a professional esports player. That dream has subsequently died.
I remember when very little saying I wanted to be an artist, a scientist, an a drummer. None of it happened, although I am a former very good bad poet..
I wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to find my true love. Move far away from my hometown and my family. None of it happened
Be a veterinarian. Then I found out it is harder to get into vet school than doctor school and also I realized I'd still have to deal with humans all the time anyway AND I would see injured and upset animals.

Which medications and therapy do you use to manage your mental health?

I'm on sertraline and trazadone as my everyday meds and I have valium and zopiclone as prn meds, this cocktail seems to work for me a lot better than some others I've been on. I don't want to go into the ins and outs of the rest of the treatment if that's alright cause there are people who will make comments about whatever I say and it is a personal subject that's not open for discussion with anyone but my nurse

Tita 25 na ko pero 1st yr on my 2nd course pa lang. Realized I want to be a nurse abroad. Dependent pa rin sa supportive parents. Gusto ko magwork but parents want me to focus on my studies. I know Im extremely lucky pero parang napagiiwanan kasi ako, naiinggit ako sa mga kabatch ko na earning na.

When I was a teenager my aunt from the province stayed with us. She was already in her thirties when she decided to study nursing and apply to work abroad. In her late thirties she eventually made it to Canada where she has a successful nursing career. It's never too late. Eye on the prize. Your classmates might be earning now but none of them will have as stable and as lucrative a career and life for you abroad. Just be patient and do well. I moved to the US in my late 20s and while it took a while for me to start over, now 20 years later I'm confident that I have achieved more for myself than anyone I went to school with without relying on family money. Come back her pag nakaalis ka na. I'm proud of you now for having big dreams and will be even more proud once you achieve them. Not if.

what are you specialized on as a nurse

I have been working on the cardiology / stroke unit, but I am currently looking for jobs in Arkansas and am willing to branch out to get more experience.

looks like josh was never happily married. abby got out of a toxic marriage and doesn't want to remarry very soon but josh was speaking to Abby about re-marriage barely a year into his wife's death & shawnie claimes they were "happy". who thinks of remarrying if they lost their love not even a year

yeah i’d say josh wasn’t “happily married”. imagine being a someone less than a year and then them being diagnosed w a terminal illness that completely deteriorated them in less than a few months. imagine going from being a husband and best friend to a full time care taker. going from dinner dates with your wife to her home health nurse. he LOVED shawnie. if he didn’t, he wouldn’t have done those things. he stayed through sickness and in health. he did everything he could for her and the boys. he took in carson as his own. he loved shawnie until the moment she died.
and that’s the thing. shawnie is DEAD. she is gone. she isn’t coming back. for months, even a year, shawnie talked about nothing more than wanting josh to move on and find someone to make him happy. find someone to love the boys. to not be stuck on her forever.
josh had been grieving shawnie before she was even gone. bc he knew what was gonna happen. that is common. he prepared himself. so him not needing YEARS to recover from the trauma of losing his wife is NORMAL. he waited several months and ended up befriending someone who knew his wife and kids. he found comfort in her and then that comfort turned to love.
i honestly cannot think of a better situation for not only him and abby, but for the children as well.
y’all are just WEIRD for finding such a damn issue with it.

What was the biggest turning point in your life?

About a year ago, my ex and I broke up and I had noticed I was constantly berating myself, being the biggest pessimist, and gaining weight like crazy. I finally took a look in the mirror and realized I needed to change for the better. Started working out, frequently meditating, became more spiritually-aware, eating better, and cut the toxicity out of my life. My life is significantly better and I can finally say for the first time in my adult life that I am truly happy.
I was aimlessly taking credits in college. I stopped dead in my tracks after taking calculus and physics finals, turned around, and marched into the school of nursing. I’ve been a nurse for 21 years now.
I was working part-time at a job while I was finishing up my college degree. After I graduated, two opportunities opened up around the same time- the job I was working at offered me a full-time position, and my best friend, who lived across the country, bought a condo and invited me to move there and be his roommate. I considered accepting the job offer and staying in the town I was living in, but instead I packed up my stuff and moved across the country with no job lined up, but with a place to live while I searched for work. 10 months later, my best friend's girlfriend introduced me to a woman she worked with. This woman and I started dating, and 2 and a half years later, we got married. If I had accepted the job offer instead of moving, I would have never met my wife.
I was on the fence about kids before, but having to raise a gay teenager in a conservative rural area in my mid-twenties stomped the shit out of that urge. I refuse to even date a woman unless she has no kids or they're all practically adults.
An 8 year relationship ended. It was the catalyst for every major change I've made in my life since then. Among many other things, I started learning to cry, ask for help, apologize without qualification, and let go of what I can't control.
For better or for worse, I dropped religion. I was never as into it as the rest of my family, and the thought that one entity gets to control how I think and act was stupid, especially since I could just up and leave the church and think for myself. Probably when my uncle, with whom I lived between age 6 and 10, dicided to kick my foster-mom and us kids out. Destroyed quite alot of opportunities for me and basically put the next decade of my life in turmoil.
When I was miserable in a marriage I rushed into. He’s an good man but we weren’t partners or lovers, just roommates essentially. I realized I had a choice - stay and live a mundane but safe life or choose happiness. I chose happiness.
I was 21 working at Walmart with no real plans for the future. I'd enrolled in college, but I wasn't sure what I'd wind up doing. 3 weeks before I was supposed to start college, I see an ad for EMT classes at the local trade school. I thought, "That seems kinda cool," and changed all my plans at the last minute to enroll in that instead.

The best thing that has happened to you this week 🙂

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
Got snowed in with my wife today. We did a puzzle and cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner together. It was nice because we couldn't go anywhere even if we needed/wanted to so we had a stress free guilt free day together.
I got some really frustrating computer algorithm to work (flawlessly) at work today. Did a simple task, but the satisfaction of seeing something you slaved over finally start working is very rewarding.
My crush offered to let me vent to her with all the shit I've been through this year. Going back to the office and socializing with my team in person.
Got surgery that I've been needing for around a year. Took months to get to the point where I finally decided to get help. Had to go through the whole X-Ray/CT/MRI thing a few times, visit with my doctor a few times, and get medications to try and help, all to get referred to a neurosurgeon and have to wait 2 months to get my surgery.
Spent quality time with my partner before he flies off for work for 2-3 weeks. Bitter sweet knowing that I won't be seeing him for weeks, but those were the best moments and feeling I had in weeks.
I did a colleague a favor, expecting maybe lunch in return. I had a good time, got a free lunch, and was paid $100.
I’ve been a nurse for eight years. This past year broke me and I thought about leaving nursing for good. I decided to give it one last chance. I started a new job on Monday and I absolutely love it. I am excited to go back next week!
A couple years ago I saved a woman’s life by forcing her to go to the ER after she passed out. She was mad at me because she didn’t think it was anything serious but she went and she ended up in complete heart block and coded in the ER and have to have a pacemaker put in. I saw her yesterday and she remembered me and thanked me for saving her life. It’s a good feeling.
Saw my mum for the first time in two and a half years. I flew from US to see her in UK. It was a complete unexpected surprise for her too.
Keeping continued contact with someone I’m very fond of.
That I became friends with my male best friend. He is so sweet and supportive and I really love him!
I watched my cousins get married on the beach in Florida. They’ve been together 16 years and only recently were allowed to wed.
My dad and I went to lunch. Seems quite lame, but it’s really huge for me.
I started taking vitamins, getting motivation to work out again, and I'm learning to love myself and not be so obsessed with my depression. I read a cool fanfiction and a big update came to my favorite game.
