    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.

    Can a fat nurse be a good nurse?

    you know, now that I think about it- had a non nursing job for 17 years- didnt get overweight UNTIL i had been a nurse for a while. hmm, connection? I wonder if my patients really think I cant teach them cause Im overweight?Or that I am a bad nurse? Ive never had anyone refuse my care before.....

    Can a fat nurse be a good nurse?

    how bout"do as I say, not as I do" haha just kidding. For all the shift work,lack of sleep, junk food readily available, high stress(=high cortisol), and running around like a lunatic just to do the bare bones basics, while being told you are not doing enough-it's no wonder some nurses are overweight. Of course there's the few who have better diets and better metabolisms or managements of their situations.Not saying its an excuse for everyone, butt Im sure it plays into the obesity of some. Oh, and we have time to TEACH???? hahahaah.Can't teach some people who don't want to be taught.
