    Has any female nurse had a crush on a male nurse?

    And that surprised me this much: (holds right hand up in a zero sign). I stopped reading at the highlighted "used to". Seriously. It was enough for me. OP, you need to learn introspection. Being over something means not having to say you're over it. At the very least it means not having to bold it.

    Pokemon GO

    Ugh. Link not working. Basically it was an article on how the hype is done and Pokemon Go is on the downhill. They've lost over a million players in one month. And many of those who remain are no longer logging into the game daily. I saw this coming. It's too hard to build up your Pokemon, the battle system is awful and it doesn't reward those who walk and play a lot (it rewards those who spend money on it........no surprise). I've not logged in for a very long time.

    Hillary Clinton regarding nursing

    Her handling of that scandal is exactly why I stopped being a fan of hers actually. My impression was that she stayed with him only for his "political pull". Notice, whenever she is falling behind in polls or losing favor with the public, he shows up and saves the day. That's how I've seen things going anyway. I felt she stayed with him because she was afraid to go out on her own. This cemented her as someone who is simply riding her husband's coattail in my mind. My respect for her would have grown leaps and bounds had she ended it and said "I can make it on my own, and I'm not going to tolerate this behavior from you." But, I digress, as I (purposefully) stated........"My impression was" and "I felt". I don't know how or why they worked things out and ended up staying together. I'm not the judge and juror of their marriage. And I felt the way she really embraced taking care of her daughter during that time was heartwarming. That was both selfless and insightful. I'd be lying though if I said my impression of her was that she stood for women's rights or equality. To me, she exudes dependence upon others and she came across as insecure.......afraid to face things without a coattail to ride.

    Hillary Clinton regarding nursing

    There has always been a dark cloud of ascetic expectations looming over nursing. Because of this, while people will sing our praises and 'say' we are a vital component of a healthy community/society..........they will always resent having to pay for our services. Nobody grows up saying "I want to have the best nurses money can buy." No matter how necessary our services are or how well we administer care, the belief is that we should give these things freely and be content with "satisfying our calling". That is why people make comments like the one Hillary Clinton supposedly did. No matter how much someone respects us, if they believe what we have to offer should be given freely.........come time to pay the bills..........that respect doesn't do anyone any good. They think they are being cheated no matter what the health outcome was or what the price is. I don't need Hillary'so respect. I've been fine so far without it. What I need is for this ascetic delusion to be dispelled. That won't happen until we, ourselves, dismiss it. We are not there yet, (in fact, in a lot of ways, we support it) so it's probably not going to happen in my lifetime.

    Oh :uhoh3: That's right, it means Crust Old Bat. Ok Not sure they'd accept me into their ranks just yet. While I do have a talent for "calling it how it is" from time to time, I think I lack in the crusty dept. too.

    I played it again with my pt yesterday. He caught FIVE Pokemon lol And it turns out that the church up the road from his house is a base/gym. They signed up for their parking lot to be the site of it. Then, church volunteers keep an eye on the place in case any suspicious people show up (pervs or such). The volunteer came out and talked to us. It was a pleasant walk.

    Oh, haha. It does look like I meant at the same time. No way. Ride my bike to the park, get off, play, ride home. I'm a little clumsy riding as it is. No way I could play and ride together.

    My patient's caretaker/POA is his Great grandmother. She loves that I take the patient out for walks through the neighborhood after school, it helps settle him down for when my shift is over and I have to leave. I decided to try to entertain him with Pokemon GO today. The conversation when we got back to his house: Me: "We played Pokemon GO. He caught bulbasaur." "He caught a what!? A what kind of sore? It isn't on his foot is it? I was worried his shoes weren't fitting good." "Not a wound, a bulbasaur. Its kind of like a dinosaur with plants growing on it's back. He found it on the corner just down the road actually." "Well don't bring it in here. And I'm not feeding it." lol Yeah, she has some trouble following a conversation when you start including virtual things in it.

    What I find fascinating is how polarizing it's become. I've had a few friends tell me "If I never hear another word about that game, it'll be too soon." lol Then I have friends who suddenly are walking two and three miles at a time a few days each week. And yes, these friends were couch potatoes for most of their life. I don't know, I'm looking forward to making my weekend bike rides a little more fun.

    I caught one today but not much time to hunt since today was a workday. It seems innocent enough if​ you keep it in perspperspective.

    Pokemon GO

    Anyone play this game? It is an app you download onto your phone or tablet and you go out into the real world to find Pokemon. I got it. Want to play it while riding my bike. But I've heard some bad stories about it: People going into others homes for pokemon, stopping in the middle of highways to catch a pokemon, driving and playing.............. I don't see myself doing any of that but I'm sure the people who did it said that too. Hmph.........it makes me wonder.
