Discount Generic Viagra

Discount generic viagra On August 3, discount generic viagra 2005, discount generic viagra the first Emergiblog post was published.

Discount generic viagra Eight years and 935 posts later, discount generic viagra and with a part of me dreading this even as I write, discount generic viagra it is time to say good-bye.

Discount generic viagra It’s been 10 months since my last entry. Discount generic viagra Many times over those months, discount generic viagra I’ve run into a situation and thought, discount generic viagra “this would make a great blog post!”

Discount generic viagra Yet, discount generic viagra I did not put my thoughts into writing.

Discount generic viagra The passing of time has not rekindled the passion to write, discount generic viagra and when the desire to write is gone, discount generic viagra one is no longer a blogger.

Discount generic viagra Damn, discount generic viagra that was hard to write.

*****

There are still topics I could write about: the metamorphosis of my hospital into a corporate appendage, discount generic viagra the uselessness of electronic medical records (very sad realization, discount generic viagra that), discount generic viagra the feeling that as nurses advance their education, discount generic viagra basic nursing care is being forgotten (oh, discount generic viagra the stories!).

Topics like this used to rev me up, discount generic viagra make me head for the keyboard and blow out a rant.

Now, discount generic viagra all I want to do is reach for the Prilosec.

Even if I still had the urge to write, discount generic viagra I wouldn’t want to sound like a bitter, discount generic viagra sarcastic nurse who is angry all the time. Discount generic viagra And I would sound like that (I wrote the paragraph above four times before it stopped sounding like I was ready to punch the wall.)

That isn’t fun to read, discount generic viagra and it certainly does nothing to help the profession.

These days, discount generic viagra frankly, discount generic viagra I’d rather spend my time off in Portland with my grandson, discount generic viagra catching up on Doctor Who episodes from the last 50 years and cheering my head off for NASCAR every weekend.

*****

But it was a hell of a ride! 😀

I have met and made friends from around the world.

I connected with nurses who shared their stories and was inspired. Discount generic viagra In fact, discount generic viagra it was student nurse bloggers who inspired me to go back for my BSN.

I connected with physicians who shared their stories and was shown a wider perspective.

Discount generic viagra I connected with patients who shared their stories and I became a better nurse.

*****

Discount generic viagra And now, discount generic viagra some thank-yous:

Discount generic viagra Shane Pike has been with me from almost the very beginning, discount generic viagra keeping things running behind the scenes. Discount generic viagra Emergiblog would not have been what it is without him. Discount generic viagra “Thank you” doesn’t even cover it.

Discount generic viagra The “medbloggers” were able to meet at BlogWorld for four years, discount generic viagra thanks to Rob Halper and Marc Monseau, discount generic viagra who spearheaded the Johnson & Johnson sponsorship of our track. Discount generic viagra Thank you both! For BlogWorld and the chance to speak in Orlando!

Discount generic viagra Of course, discount generic viagra those meetings would never have happened if Rick Calvert, discount generic viagra CEO of BlogWorld (now known as New Media Expo) had not seen my rant decrying the lack of medbloggers at conferences. Discount generic viagra He said, discount generic viagra “We have room for you here!” Not only did I meet my fellow medbloggers, discount generic viagra but also my “Blogfathers” Hugh Hewitt and James Lileks! Thank you, discount generic viagra Rick!

Discount generic viagra Bora Zivkovik gave me my first link. Discount generic viagra I remember waking up and seeing that 35 people had read the post overnight and realizing that I didn’t have that many family members who knew I blogged, discount generic viagra so something must have happened! Thank you, discount generic viagra Bora, discount generic viagra for the encouragement that link provided!

Discount generic viagra Terri Polick, discount generic viagra aka Nurse Ratched’s Place, discount generic viagra is my “Blogdaughter”, discount generic viagra BFF and partner-in-crime all these years. Discount generic viagra Terri has moved on to a new blog, discount generic viagra Mod Mother: Modern Design with a Motherly Twist. Discount generic viagra Thanks for all the fun/commiseration/support! We had quite a ride, discount generic viagra didn’t we? 😀

Discount generic viagra And last, discount generic viagra but certainly not least, discount generic viagra

Discount generic viagra My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has stopped by to read Emergiblog. Discount generic viagra A blog without readers is just a diary. Discount generic viagra Emergiblog was a success because you came to read.

*****

(The actual blog will remain up. Discount generic viagra Comments to all old posts have been disabled (this post is still open.) The “Contact” button still works. Discount generic viagra I’m still on Twitter as @emergiblog and if you can stand cat pictures and a lot of NASCAR talk, discount generic viagra I’m also on Facebook. Discount generic viagra )

Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 Oh! to see perfectly horizontal black lines, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 inviting me to hover my delicately-balanced pen above, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 poised to create a work of art.

Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 Oh! to eloquently describe my nursing care in cursive so beautiful my great-grandmother would cry.

Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 What would I give?

Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 I’d give my (expletive) Cerner workstation a shove into the San Francisco Bay.

Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 Boy, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 do I have a rant all ready to explode for this one.

Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 But that’s the next post.

**********

What do you do when you lose your voice?

Your blogging voice.

It used to be so easy.

****

When I started blogging in 2005 I just talked about what it was like to be a staff nurse. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 That was my “voice.” The stories flowed off the keyboard. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 Blogging was a creative outlet.

Blogging was fun.

Today, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 an old-school Catholic nun sits in my head, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 rapping my knuckles with her ruler if I even consider posting something that isn’t “prim and proper”.

The trouble is, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 “prim and proper” is not my style.

Now, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 I can write “prim and proper” with the best of them. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 But a blog is not the place for that. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 This blog is not the place for that.

And to be honest with you, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 I have not been all that enamored of health care in the last year or so, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 of watching my wonderful small community hospital become an appendage of a corporate behemoth. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 Or of reading about health care in terms of partisan politics every single day in the news.

I wanted to rant and blog. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 But I didn’t know what to say, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 or how to say it. Antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 Sister Super-ego wanted prim and proper, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 but I couldn’t produce prim and proper.

So when I went to “speak, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00” nothing came out.

*****

I don’t know where Sister Super-ego came from, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 or where I got the idea that everything produced on this blog had to look like it was ready for a peer-reviewed journal.

This blog never was and never will be a “professional publication”.

It’s just the story of the life and times of an emergency department nurse.

Time to get back to my “roots.”

If anyone is still reading, antibiotics > bactrim 480mg pills (generic) > 90 pills > $102.00 thanks for hanging in there! Smile

Pain Relief > Feldene 20mg Pills (Generic) > 30 Pills > $53.00

Blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 Apparently even one-eyed alien nurses wear caps!

Blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 For the life of me, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 I cannot remember where I found this photo, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 but it looks straight out of Doctor Who circa 1963.

Blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 There were nurses in one episode of Doctor Who: a race of humanoid feline nuns called the Sisters of Plentitude.

I was about to say, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 “You can’t make this stuff up!”, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 but obviously someone did!

*****

You would think that after 18 years online and more than 7 years as a blogger, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 I’d know better.

But no, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 I actually fell for a scam this week.

No money changed hands.

Worse.

They ticked me off.

*****

It has been a long time since any sort of scam-type email has come through to me.

They have improved! They don’t misspell. Blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 The grammar almost passes muster.

It seems a company wanted to use “Emergiblog” as their domain name and keyword in….wait for it…China/Asia.

You’re already smacking your head, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 right? “Doh!” Ding, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 ding, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 ding….scam!

The email wanted to know if I was connected with this “company” and if they were my distributor in China/Asia, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 because there was a conflict.

The company is a UK construction firm.

*****

Hmmmm.

I sent a cordial email back that said (a) I was not affiliated with the company who wanted the name and (b) I did not want the name registered by anyone else and (c) it would be a cold day in hell before I’d give the name up.

And that was that.

*****

Then, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 a second email arrives from a Yahoo address in….wait for it….China (with broken English, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 “Dear Sirs, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00”…ding…ding…ding!) saying basically, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 we got your message and we are going to do it anyway even though the guy who sent the first email advises us to find another name.

Okay….now you’ve done it.

Now you have pissed…me…off.

And you do not want to piss….me….off….

*****

The first rule of internet correspondence is that one remains cordial.

So, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 I sent a cordial response stating “oh, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 HELL no, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00” indicating that legal representation was being obtained.

You can’t swing a cat two feet in this family without hitting enough lawyers to form a firm.

It wouldn’t be hard to get exactly what I need.

But…

*****

I decided to let Web-guy extraordinaire, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 Shane, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 know what was happening.

About ten seconds later, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 I got the response:

“Oldest scam in the book.”

Followed by my Facebook blogger pals telling me the same thing.

How could I not have seen this?

It was only as large as a neon, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 freaking billboard!

I smacked my head so hard I had LOC for ten minutes.

*****

It won’t happen again.

I’m chagrined it happened at all.

How embarrassing.

The only consolation is that the threat to my blog identity brought out my killer instinct, blood pressure > nimotop 30mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $174.00 even if I’m not blogging as much as I would like to.

One does not mess with another’s domain name.

It just isn’t done.
