Wow!! What a day I had today. Can't explain it, I just felt as high as a kite! No drugs or alcohol taken!
I started my day in a senoir building around the block. Had to get a dilatin level on my sweet 96 yo man, who had been having seizures recently. He had such a hard time understanding the med regime 100 am 100 mid-day and 130mg at hs. Finally he explained he felt better taking it 100-100-100-30 in four seperate doses. I had to delay the labs until I was sure he got it right, called every day, make a few extra stops and notes while in the building seeing other pt's. He won't use a med box, has to use his own system. Finally got it worked out.
Anyway, I had gotten a little rusty on phelbotmy while doing VNA only weekends, so I was nervous the last two weeks w/ new FT status. Don't know why, haven't missed anyone yet, but now I'm getting most sticks w/o butterfly again, so that was a good thing.
Maybe b/c it was friday, maybe b/c it was my last lab draws of the week, I was feeling pretty good. Dropped off labs at the hospital, and in the elevator, is a goofy sign about smiling, how it kicks up your endorphins, make people around you feel good. I decided to smile the whole way in and out of the hospital
By the time I got to work, I felt wired! I swear, it was like an endorphin rush. They handed me two new admits, a husband and wife to see together, and that was it for the rest of my day. I said , shoot, I can see another pt, and took one off the weekend schedule! Am I nuts?
I am wondering, has anyone else ever felt an endorphin rush like this? Am I going manic? Am I having menopausal mood swings? Haven't felt too depressed this winter, like usual, maybe b/c I get my 10 or more minutes of real sunshine while in and out of the car, walking to buildings, etc.
What do you think? Am I just looking a gift horse in the mouth??
