    Opinions on Euthanasia

    I loved The Suicide Toourist. I adored the wife. So strong, yet contained and realistic and loving. Here's one about Sassy Squirrel's links: Recommended DVDs - Mademaoiselle and the Doctor

    Opinions on Euthanasia

    I am not a faceless paper-pusher. I am a nurse who has watched people tortured by their adult children for various reasons, usually the child's own inability to come to terms with mortality, sometimes as venal as that as long as Daddy is alive they can live in his house. I could give that injection in the heartbeat it takes to stop his. I see so much needless suffering and prolongation of death, not extension of life.

    my skin after a 12 hr shift... help!

    I grab alcohol wipes and get the greasy bits during the day.

    My mom died yesterday

    I am so very sorry for your loss, but happy that you got to spend so much time caring for her and showing her the love I know you hold in your heart. I'm glad it was peaceful.

    "Mercy" Cancelled

    I couldn't get past the cliches in Mercy and HawthoRNe, I couldn't get through an episode. Nurse Jackie, now, I love. She is so flawed and such a good nurse that the Catholic girl from Queens cliche is okay. And they have NYC down.

    Just rented "Nurse Jackie"

    Can't get enough. I am so sick of hearing about nursing's image. We are still trusted and highly regarded. And really, I don't want to watch shows about saints. All perfection, all the time.

    Assisted Suicide Bill Published to Scottish Parliament

    The interesting thing that has happened here, in the few states that have legalized it, is that people get the option and then don't use it. I think that knowing that they are in control and can opt out at their discretion quells the fear.

    Assisted Suicide Bill Published to Scottish Parliament

    Dementia and Parkinson's both run in my family. I would like an exit option.

    Should HCW's be forced to donate organs after death?

    I have no problem with mandating that HCWs be vaccinated against many things, including a new, deadly flu.

    Should HCW's be forced to donate organs after death?

    This is called a straw man argument. Nothing to do with vaccination.

    Poland OK's chemical castration of pedophiles

    No treatment. There is no treatment. But they must not be loose in society.

    Mercy - NBC show all about nurses

    I'll watch again. I wasn't in love with it, and it certainly didn't of it for me viscerally as did Nurse Jackie, but the lead is certainly presented as a competent nurse, at least. I love her mother's character, BTW.

    Mercy - NBC show all about nurses

    I enjoyed it. It was much better than HawthoRNe, not nearly as engaging as Nurse Jackie. There was some stuff I didn't like but I'll continue watching.

    Weight loss, running and night shift

    I work 8s. 12s, I'd just drop down dead afterwards, plus I, too, am energized after a run. But I have never been a morning runner. After work or lunch has always worked best for me, but health care isn't a field conducive to, well, health. 2:01 would be one minute shy of my dream for that race. The one I did was 2:45, exactly what I predicted. I'm not fast. Just dogged'. Although starting at 11, evening runs might work. But then, it'll be like morning!

    Weight loss, running and night shift

    Pack your food. Lots of fruit. Run as soon as you get home. I started running again, too, and have taken off 20 pounds so far. I go to nights next week. That's my plan. :)
