ok...i have to jump in here...i'm sick of seeing this stuff!!!!!
pattycakes & amy...i'm sorry if you got some upset replies to your post patty, i'm sure they may sound discouraging...but think about your initial title..."what are you guys complaining about?" i'm not really sure what kind of replies you were expecting???
it's common knowledge that how you say something can totally change that meaning of what you say. i also came to this site for some positive reinforcement on choosing a career in nursing, i have got nothing but excellent responses to everything i have asked, simply because i treat the people i'm talking to with respect & i do so because i am not a nurse, but i want to learn as much as i can from this great resource-the bb. think about how people might have responded if your question had been phrased differently?
i don't want all nurses here to be thrilled with nursing everyday and not one bad word to say about it-because that's not real. i have 3 lpns in my family and i've seen what nursing does to them first hand-and i usually don't see them on christmas! but i know that despite the good and bad they'd never give it up-which to me is what i want to hear. we need to hear the complaining and problems-because hey-they happen, here just like with any job.
as for heather & probably others who are sick of getting pm's then hey leave them alone! anyone here has the right to choose who they do or don't have contact with on the bb, so that's their choice. frankly, i agree, i'm tired of it. you asked a bad question knowing you were going to stir people up, so don't be disappointed with the replies you got & don't be surprised that people don't want to receive pm's from you. i'm sure that you could get a lot of positive feedback here if you ask for it, by asking appropriate questions, nothing personal to you amy-you are a great resource to patty & it's great you love your job, but unfortunately everyone's experience is different. maybe you should give it another try pattycakes.
do not air you dirty laundry and vices with others here-in this situation it's just not appropriate-she doesn't want to receive pm's anymore ok enough said, you know! i can understand why!
