Welcome October 23rd, 2005

  1. Wow my 1000th post happened today and now I get to start the day off as well. I just love allnurses, I appreciate the ability to vent when I need to, the ability to find a joke when I need to laugh, the ability to receive great advice when I need it, and the ability to receive understanding and compassion from most of my online friends. Have a blessed day everyone.

    Morning Dutchgirl,

    Spending the night writing a community assessment and intervention paper . I'm back on nightshift for the weekend, and I'll be on days the middle of this week. Congrats on the 1000th post.

    Morning to all who come and post.

    congratulations on your 1000th post dutchgirl- definitely a milestone.

    nurseboy- i don't know how you do it- going from nocs to days then back to nocs. i'm sincerely impressed as i could never handle it.

    well, the latest is that i've brought dd to 2 separate psychiatrists this week, to be evaluated for suicide risks. both psychiatrists feel she is safe. but a guidance counsellor in her school actually wrote to me that tiffany expressed suicidal thoughts to this woman and that she can prove that tiffany has actually attempted suicide. when i emailed her about these alleged incidents, she ignored my emails. so i wrote to the headmaster of the school with a copy of the email this counsellor wrote me. i was frantic and furious. even ds told me tonight he wished tiffany moved away because she's causing so many problems in the house.

    a hospice agcy called, wanting me to apply as a hospice coordinator. i had to decline and will continue to refuse all these job offers until i know tiff is safe and stable. it sucks. i want to go back to work sooooo badly.

    ok, enough of my cheery news.
    everyone, have a lovely day.

    love to all,

    leslie xo

    I posted all my weekend news on the Sat. GM thread, so I'm kinda talked out . . .

    Hi DutchGirl, Nurseboy1 and ((((((((((((((Leslie))))))))))))))). Do you agree w/the two psychiatrists' eval? I do wish I could help in some way. You and yours cont. to be in my prayers.

    Everyone have a good Sunday!

    Well, it'll be Sunday morning here in 10 minutes, so guess I can say it:

    Good Morning Y'all

    Dutchgirl - congratulations!! this is an awesome site, isn't it?

    Nurseboy - I also stand in awe of people who can shift back and forth between day and night shift. No way would I be able to do that. Hope you got your paper finished.

    Sweet Leslie - my smilies have decided not to work, but here's a great big hug ((((((((((((Leslie)))))))))))). Wish I could do more to help than that. What is with this counselor at school, saying things like that and then not even getting back to you? But thank goodness you have the choice of being able to stay home till things get worked out with dd. Which I certainly hope is soon.
    BTW, how is Marjorie?

    We were hoping to go to the coast tomorrow but the weatherman is predicting rain. Well, at least we had sunshine Saturday. Dh and I were so tired from working in the yard we went to the ice cream place for shakes for dinner. Had chocolate chip cookie dough - yummy

    Hope we all have a peaceful Sunday.

    P.S. had to edit to say HI Diana - must have been typing when you posted.

    Roy: I've been busy between work and school. Stats is truly killing me, I have a lovely 60 average currently. Work has been fun, 14 new nurses have started in the last couple of months, management cleaned house with the travelers, so EVERYBODY has been precepting including me. Just started on a second unit, so I work MICU stepdown and CCU stepdown. Although the community nursing class that this lovely paper is due in is not so bad, I have actually learned a lot about what is available and not available here in my local community. BTW I really have been doing more lurking than posting here lately, I will have to mend my ways:chuckle .

    Weetzie: I never did say welcome back. Glad you're stateside and able to talk with us again.

    To all who have commented, I don't know how I switch between shifts either I guess I just do . I'm just kinda weird all I need is a day to switch I've just always been that way.

    Hope everyone has a great day, I'm going to bed, gotta work tonight.
