stay....go.......stay....go?

  1. -----Wow....what a ride it's been,eh? Well, I have noticed how many insightful and knowledgable people are leaving this BB. I am so so so sad tonight. I keep reading all of these threads hoping that someone will in some way, control this or remedy this situation. I am amazed at the amount of people whom I will no longer be able to chat with or learn from. I wish I could speak of all this with the eloquence that some do. I can't. I cannot say that I will leave...as much as I want to I am still addicted. I hate to say that.......at this moment, I WANT TO LEAVE. I really do. I need the information that I have learned here. I need to learn more.

    -----I may continue to post, I may even chat and enjoy myself. But never again will I tell my friends, co-workers and/or fellow nursing students about Allnurses.com. I am really dissapointed with the actions and behaviors of some people. It is sad that so many will leave and only the real family seems to care....it's sickening actually...at least to me. I will still be here....but respect is lost. It is hard to gain respect of peers.....but oh so easily lost.!!!!!! This may not mean much to some petty people, but I hold those I respect high......and those of you leaving......I hope you guys are the kind of nurse I can be.

    ------ I wish all of my very good friends and even those whom I silently respected the very best. Please In a while if the urge ever comes back to check in here....please do!!! Know that no matter the outcome...there are students and new nurses that need YOUR opinion. I have learned so much from you guys. I hope some of you guys read this and know that you will be sorely missed!! I APOLOGIZE FOR THOSE THAT WON"T!!!!!!!

    I am so sorry!!!

    Just my 2 cents!

    <pats Hidi on the head> "Don't worry".
    You'll hear from the 'other side' soon enough. That's all I'll say for now.

    hey , a tv sitcom analogy if you will

    you watch your absolutely favourite sitcom, faithfully ,and then there is one bad episode, or something that makes you not really watch anymore....

    doesnt mean you like the actors in the sitcom any less right?
    doesnt mean you wont watch them in another show right?
    *exactly*

    We are having a mass exodus at work. Kind of feels like that here. I am not sure what I will do in either case.

    Things are not that comfortable here right now.

    I will probably post periodically but never feel comfortable anymore.

    It has nothing to with profanity.

    It has nothing to do with inflammatory threads.

    It has to do with taking responsibility, being mature and adult in how one handles things, and censorship.

    We'll see where the future lies.

    But, no, I don't recommend this site anymore. Nurses get enough stress at work - they do not need it in personal life.

    You took the words right out of my mouth, Hidi. I valued the opinions of many of the members who have decided to leave. I'm sorry to see them go.

    I'll be sorry to see them go too . . . especially OBHeather who has been so kind as to help this computer illiterate nurse make an avatar of my son and myself. She didn't know me from Adam and helped me anyway. And Wendy, who didn't write me off when I asked a very strange question in chat. And Susy, who writes the way I wish I could and with whom I share many of the same conservative thoughts. I'm fairly new here and I've always felt grateful how comfortable I've been.

    Having said the above, I have to admit I'm still bewildered by this whole thing and I guess in using the word "drama" in another post, I've offended someone, as I got a pm from a moderator. To be honest, I guess I just don't see how this all blew up and I don't see how ending our communications with one another accomplishes anything. I posted my honest surprise, shock, and the thought that maybe this was all a practical joke. I wrote to someone that it feels like I walked into the twilight zone. These are just my honest thoughts. I like it here. I'll miss those who are leaving and hope they stay. I'm sorry if the word "drama" offended someone however in the future, pm me, ok? I have a tough hide and can handle criticism.

    Thanks and DON'T GO! :kiss

    Ditto to what everyone said. I am not an elequent (sp) writer, but the ones that took me under their wing when I started and talked to me, made me feel that I had something to say, it makes me sad. I will stay because I miss nursing and this is the only place that I can share nursing with since I cannot work anymore. I need this board, just wish it did not have the stress factor in it that it has right now.

    I love this bulletin board, and enjoy the diversity of posting members. I doubt theres anything that will make me leave.

    Everyone has their own reasons for coming, and enjoying this board. If I read a post that offends me, I just go on to something else without another thought. The only thing that truly bothers me are the threads with personal attacks; not really having a theme otherwise. Thats just MY personal vent. I'm a grown-up. I'm adaptible, and have lived awhile. When life changes I go with the flow, or change my course.

    I enjoy what this board has to offer far too much to leave. I so hope NO ONE leaves. I get more smiles, and laughs than I could ever count from the members here on a daily basis. ( of course, not to mention all the educational stuff I pick up along the way!) ... (smile)
