    For female nurses (the taboo: heavy periods)

    Lupron shot bought me some time, Did end up doing iron infusions. Am hoping that mother nature will take over from here on out ( menopause) But if not, will consider the ablation. GYNO wants me to have hysterectomy. No thanks, Ill try other ways first Doesnt help to be on coumadin with all this baloney going on. I like the depends idea. Gawd, I hope aunt flo never returns. op i sympathize

    Help! My Husband Snores Like A Category 5 Hurricane!

    As we all know , being HCP's , there are some things we cant change .My husband is one of the. I swear he is going out of his way to d everything that could be wrong for a person to do to themselves. He has sleep apnea. Ive explained to him I remember working in the EP lab of a pt that needed an AICD for an EF of 15, I believe. That guy was in his 50's, slightly overweight, but big time apnea. I never saw such an enlarged heart ever! i swear it was as wide as his whole chest! Do you think that had any impact on my husband? No. That his mother died at 60 from chf, obesity and copd? No. ( and she even wore her cpap faithfully!) He tried it for a while. Couldnt wear it because he would wake up in a panic and rip it off his face and throw it( while half asleep) heaven forbid anyone touches him when he is asleep too- has such an awful startle reaction you'd probably get punched. needless to say, we sleep in seperate quarters. And he wonders why I dont want to be around him. Duh. Stubborness at its finenest. Actually theres a nother name for it that begins with an A , but we're not aloowed to say it here.

    Warning - a vent: Baby, Baby, Baby

    Caroladybelle- first off hugs, and second- i hope you feel better getting that off your chest. I am so sorry others are sooooo oblivious. - what matters is the person that we raised- that we turned them into a productive member of society, as you did, and that you must be very proud. I cant stand it when these pg ones complain. Maybe they should be reminded to be thankful that they were even able to get pg, and not complain about it. If they cant do this or that, then guess what- get a Dr's excuse to go on leave. Otherwise, shut up. I know gals who have had to quit their jobs- maybe these ones should be reminded that that is an option, since they cant do anything but sign charts. If I had had the opportunity to get pg, I know I wouldnt have asked for special treatment. I bet youre in the spot I am too- older parent- they are in their 20s and 30s. We wont see eye to eye anyway, hence when you get snubbed for trying to talk parenting experiences. How dare they even ask where you child came from-how insulting- thats none of their business and should not affect you being a "real "whatever. ugggh - so sorry. Well, I hope their new babies keep them up all night, haha.Again, so sorry, and it sounds like you did a good job being a Mom.

    Baby Cat Needs a Colectomy

    Csemgr1-I'm so sorry for your loss of your baby kitty-It is very difficult to endure. I lost my Kitty back in December, and I still get teary now even. Actually , when I saw your avatar, i knew where this was headed and that brought back the feelings too. What a wonderful avatar-for when the day comes and we are reunited. I found it helpful to go to this chatroom http://www.petloss.com/altchat.htm, the people there are wonderful and all are in the same boat- it some times helps to talk to people who've "been there before" Hang in there- were here for you.
