I've been on allnurses.com for awhile now. And I've participated on other BB's on the web. This is the best forum by far. You can be heck-fired angry at someone on one thread, and happily laugh out loud with them on another, holding no grudges. For that I'd like to say thanks..... :kiss , to everyone.
Just think, if there could be an allworldleaders.com where Sharon and Arafat could hack away on their issues in one thread, and laugh about potty-training their kids together in another. President Bush and Saddam Hussein curse each other out on one thread, and :chuckle about Lyle Lovett's hair together on another. I know that sounds silly, but I think you know what I mean.
Anyway, thanks, all...

You are so right, LasVegasRN! This is without a doubt the BEST nursing website I've ever discovered! We are a mature, kind, understanding, sometimes overstressed, crazy, PMSing (at times), humorous, witty, mad at the world (at times), loving, compassionate, and wise bunch of health care providers - mainly nursing students and nurses - on the web. :kiss Brian created a great site, and the good hearted nurses checked it out, and now we're addicted bigtime! Because of this site, we are able to vent our worst frustrations, have our tantrums of 'sibling' rivalry and come back hugging and kissing each other, share our funniest times, our worst times, our crazy moments, our relationship issues, make fun of ourselves, disagree with one another, and cry together all in the same 'click' of the mouse. Who would have thunk it for a site so massive as this! This is my second home...literally...because right now I am at home most of the time due to my health, but this board offers me a lot of encouragement, hope, love, and motivation to not give up...one day I'll be back on the "force" of nursing. I recommend this site every chance I get which is why I can't wait to receive my Allnurses baseball jersey and baseball cap so I can proudly wear it for others to see. I've already been stopped numerous times with questions regarding another site I use to visit simply because they see me wearing that site's T-shirt (yes, it was a free T-shirt, so why not wear it).
Anyhoo...I love telling people about this site. Thanks goes to Brian Short for making his brain child come true here on Allnurses.com. :kiss

Brian is just great. He is on top of all the trolls that try to disrupt things. He has thought provoking posts and polls and brings new innovations to the site. My hubby sees me on allnurses and says "Not again!"
By the way, Renee, I want to tell you how brave I thought you were sharing with everyone your hx of abuse on the pedophilia thread. I hope it gave some of the skeptics a new perspective.

Just adding my own 2 cents....
What I like about this site is that, even when one of us says something that just makes another's skin crawl... or gets the hairs on the back of our neck standing straight up... and even if we vent our disagreement or frustration at such comments... it's not in an attempt to step on a fellow Nurse.... Just releasing our stress.
To any on this site who I may have offended or whose feelings I may have trampled, my profound apologies. I'm human and need to vent on occasion, too.
