Happy birthday by the way, belated. (are you now 26?) :0)
I do understand that if you have a double history of reports to the State that your career is toast. One licensing hit is more than enough and two is fatal.
My point is that the likelihood that you will actually get this second hit is unlikely. It is much more unlikely than you think, and there is no way that the pharmacy person is going to take you to the State reporting level. I really want, if you can, to see that the trauma of your past is a primary reason why you are vigilant to these types of things.
No, I do not think you are unreasonable in being careful, but I do not want you to wind yourself into anxiety at the typical day to day messes that nurses often get into. Your field is just rife with opportunity to screw up, that is true. But you are anything but dull in terms of being careful and if Margaret can stay this long...well, that tells you something.
Dr b was being very inappropriate. As a matter of fact, in psychology what he is doing to you is called grooming...seeing if you are one of those married blondes that would like to have a fling. In many ways, this guy is not too bright and is arrogant in a less subtle way than he first appears.
The heart with the docs featured as the star? Of course. That would be par, right? They know (cough, cough) that without them the world stops its revolving and day and night ceases. I saw similar things at my hospital. Nurses are treated badly in many cases, and we all "love" the doctors. Of course...
Well, I didn't mean that you should be mean, just that you can afford to be yourself. Blunt truth is not totally you. I mean you are married. You have to be negotiator and compromising person to a significant extent.
Bully nurse is just being manipulative. She can't beat you up directly so being your friend might get her somewhere with information, leverage, etc. She could just be friendly of course, but I am betting otherwise.
I agree. When people treat us like we are disposable, that others are there for their convenience, it is annoying at the least, and painful at the worst to live with this. Beck and call relationships usually do not last. There is just not enough there to feel like we are valued. Drop her you may have too. Yes, it sucks. But this sadly is a universal trait of the hopelessly self centered. Steven
