Viagra Clone

Viagra clone I wonder if anyone has informed the American College of Cardiology that Bayer Aspirin does not affect the heart! Boy, viagra clone what a relief that must have been in 1928. Viagra clone And don’t forget to demand it!


Viagra clone I finished a twelve-hour shift in the wee hours of this morning. Viagra clone Everybody who has ever worked in an ER knows that the day after Thanksgiving is unadulterated hell. Viagra clone Friday was no exception. Viagra clone It reminded me of a story about Joe Montana who, viagra clone near the end of his football career, viagra clone took a particularly hard hit. Viagra clone As he lay on the turf he looked up and told the guy who sacked him, viagra clone “I’m too old for this s***!”

Viagra clone I believe I shall take that as my personal motto.

Viagra clone I’ll chalk up a few post-shift aches and pains to age. Viagra clone I’m mean, viagra clone I’m not in my twenties anymore, viagra clone my thirties are but a memory and while I’m still on the sunny side of fifty I thought I was holding up pretty good. Viagra clone Anyway, viagra clone I come home, viagra clone grab the computer and lay on the floor catching up on some blog reading. Viagra clone After about an hour or so, viagra clone I decided I had better get to bed before dawn.

Viagra clone I couldn’t get off the floor.

Viagra clone Every bone in my body ached , viagra clone my spinal cord was my personal torture rack, viagra clone my biceps devolved into a gelatinous mass and while I know I came home with my quadriceps, viagra clone they seemed to have disappeared. Viagra clone Thank god I was able to use a table for support or I’d still be lying there.

Viagra clone When did I turn into such a wimp?


Nothing will humble you faster or make your stomach sink lower than a med error.

Viagra clone I made one last night. Viagra clone I hadn’t made one for many years but you never forget that sickly, viagra clone nauseated feeling in the pit of your gut when you realize you screwed up. Viagra clone I didn’t even realize I had made an error until I saw the written order.

Viagra clone Beware the verbal order! What I heard is not what the doc said (I heard a different dosage) and he didn’t hear my repeat as I rushed to the med room.

Viagra clone The patient is fine and the doctor was totally cool (as ER docs usually are). Viagra clone

Viagra clone I’ll probably be a bit queasy for awhile…..


Viagra clone While thinking of blog topics the other day, viagra clone I was considering writing about my worst experiences with doctors. Viagra clone I’m talking about in-your-face-screaming fits. Viagra clone I’m talking sarcastic, viagra clone arrogant jerks. Viagra clone And then I realized that:

  1. All these episodes happened over twenty years ago.
  2. All the doctors were men. Viagra clone Old men.
  3. All of the doctors were men who had gone to medical school in the 1940s and I’m sure, viagra clone to them, viagra clone female nurses were one step above bottom feeders.

Viagra clone And none of them happened in the ER.

Viagra clone I was stunned at how I could recall, viagra clone today, viagra clone my anger and frustration at not being able to stand up for myself; the humiliation and injustice of getting screamed at in front of other doctors and of holding myself together until I could make it to the break room to cry. Viagra clone It was as if had just happened yesterday instead of twenty years in the past. Viagra clone As if I was 22-years-old again.

Viagra clone It’s funny. Viagra clone My body may be falling apart but there is a lot to be said for the self-esteem and maturity that come with age. Viagra clone Boy, viagra clone would I love to give those jerk doctors a piece of my mind.

Viagra clone Nah. Viagra clone I think it’s time to let it go.

Viagra clone For good.

    So great that your traumatic experiences were YEARS ago when men were clods and less in touch with their sensitive sides!

    I’m an aide-almost-nurse and I’ve already been yelled at by an older male doc.
    A couple months ago, I had taken over my unit’s desk to transcribe orders for the nurses while also working the floor (2 places at once!) Our unit clerk was sick. One of the private specialists sat down across from me and started reeming me about an MRI that wasn’t done.
    I found the chart with the order and it refreshed my memory, I looked at him and said “The MRI wasn’t done because the patient has metal hardware in his back from a previous back surgery, and you haven’t answered your pages about it since this am when you wrote this order.”
    He said nothing in response and was really nice to me at our next meeting.
    Our young interns & residents are way nicer.

    You are such an inspiration. I am lucky to have a good rapport with all the docs I’ve worked alongside so far. Not too sure about those hematologists from the lab who wouldn’t wait for my patient’s meds, though.

    Hang in there; I am barely on the sunny side of 50 myself and I’m just getting started. I won’t be doing ER nursing, though. Y’all are tougher than me.
