Cialis For Women

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

hhhhhhhhhh

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

Cialis for women I believe I shall take that as my personal motto.

Cialis for women I’ll chalk up a few post-shift aches and pains to age. Cialis for women I’m mean, cialis for women I’m not in my twenties anymore, cialis for women 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. Cialis for women Anyway, cialis for women I come home, cialis for women grab the computer and lay on the floor catching up on some blog reading. Cialis for women After about an hour or so, cialis for women I decided I had better get to bed before dawn.

Cialis for women I couldn’t get off the floor.

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

Cialis for women When did I turn into such a wimp?

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

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

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

Cialis for women 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.

Cialis for women The patient is fine and the doctor was totally cool (as ER docs usually are). Cialis for women

Cialis for women I’ll probably be a bit queasy for awhile…..

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

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

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

Cialis for women And none of them happened in the ER.

Cialis for women I was stunned at how I could recall, cialis for women today, cialis for women 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. Cialis for women It was as if had just happened yesterday instead of twenty years in the past. Cialis for women As if I was 22-years-old again.

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

Cialis for women Nah. Cialis for women I think it’s time to let it go.

Cialis for women 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.
