Tadalafil Cialis No Prescription

Tadalafil cialis no prescription constipationForget the swine flu (or, tadalafil cialis no prescription as coined by James Lileks, tadalafil cialis no prescription the “Tijuana Pig Plague”)!

Tadalafil cialis no prescription You can protect yourself from those who cough and sneeze and spread their germs right out in the open.

Tadalafil cialis no prescription But you never know who around you is suffering from that silent killer, tadalafil cialis no prescription constipation.

Tadalafil cialis no prescription The WHO will sound the warning for a potentially pandemic flu, tadalafil cialis no prescription but nary a word on those who can’t produce excreta.

Tadalafil cialis no prescription And as we all know…

Tadalafil cialis no prescription It’s constipation that will get you in the end.

Tadalafil cialis no prescription Thanks folks, tadalafil cialis no prescription I’ll be here all night and don’t forget to tip the waitress….

Tadalafil cialis no prescription The latest edition of Change of Shift is up over at Code Blog: Tales of a Nurse, tadalafil cialis no prescription and it looks like a good one!

Tadalafil cialis no prescription The highlights for me: some common swine flu sense from Nurse Jo over at Head Nurse and the continuing Adventures of Bob, tadalafil cialis no prescription the Nurse! Seems Keith from Digital Doorway has a new friend in Mr. Tadalafil cialis no prescription Bob, tadalafil cialis no prescription and Bob gets around!

Tadalafil cialis no prescription Thanks, tadalafil cialis no prescription Gina, tadalafil cialis no prescription for a wonderful edition (and I still get excited when I see my button on your sidebar!  : D)

**********

Hey, tadalafil cialis no prescription Nurse K over at Crass Pollination is having a pledge drive. Tadalafil cialis no prescription It’s easy, tadalafil cialis no prescription it’s fast and you don’t have to sit through any long pledge breaks before you get to the good stuff.  It’s only going on for a week, tadalafil cialis no prescription so don’t miss out on supporting one of our own! Bloggers supporting bloggers – it’s what we do!

************

The Medblogger Meet-Up at BlogWorld/New Media Expo 09 is still under construction (pardon our dust).  I should have some information on registration soon.  In the meantime, tadalafil cialis no prescription get those days off, tadalafil cialis no prescription start saving those pennies and remember, tadalafil cialis no prescription what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas unless you happen to run into Dr. Tadalafil cialis no prescription Anonymous and his video cam!

*****

Ahhhhh…

I’m sitting at Starbucks and I should be studying Buddhism, tadalafil cialis no prescription specifically the Zen offshoot.

Something tells me there is more to Zen than those little gardens of sand with the tiny rakes.

Maybe if I meditate over this latte I’ll reach Nirvana.

The state of, tadalafil cialis no prescription not the rock group.

Bet Siddhartha never thought of that back in the day!

And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, tadalafil cialis no prescription don’t worry, tadalafil cialis no prescription neither did I until this week!

*****

I could use some meditation right about now.

Work is a pain in the butt.

Not because it is bad, tadalafil cialis no prescription but because I am experiencing a really bad case of I-don’t-want-to-be-there, tadalafil cialis no prescription aka: burn out.

Which is totally nuts because I have no reason to be burned out.

I just want to be anywhere but there.

*****

I want to be studying.

I want to be doing laundry and dusting.

I want to be blogging.

I want to be able to watch Nascar with two bottles of Bud Light (with Lime), tadalafil cialis no prescription which I can’t do when I have to go work.

Instead I am picking up a ton of hours to cover for various and sundry reasons.

I always say “NO MORE”.

And then I pick up more.

*****

Buddha would say my life is full of dukkha because I am experiencing way too much tanha.

And he would be right.

Basically, tadalafil cialis no prescription it means I’m miserable and whiny because I want something I don’t have and I’m craving what I do want, tadalafil cialis no prescription but according to the Buddha, tadalafil cialis no prescription in the end, tadalafil cialis no prescription I’ll be miserable anyway.

It just sounds so much less bitchy when Buddha says it.

Mesterolone 25mg Pills $138.00

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 coke2OMG!

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 This is bizarre!

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Check out the claim:

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 “Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much highter chance of gaining acceptance and “fitting in” during those akward pre-teen and teen years.”

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Say what?

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Well then my kids all should have been voted “Most Popular” because they were exposed to Diet Pepsi from the get-go through breast feeding. Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 I loves me my Diet Pepsi!

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 I always wanted to be more popular.  Now I can blame my parents.

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Did people really believe this tripe?

********************

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Tomorrow, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Gina at Code Blog: Tales of a Nurse will be hosting Change of Shift.

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 The theme is, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 well, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 being human.

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 You know, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 those times when maybe you don’t quite act like a professional?

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 My problem wasn’t thinking of one.

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 My problem was picking which one to use!

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 I can take a lot.  I do take a lot.

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 But play me for a fool, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 push me far enough, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 and I will break.

Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 To claim otherwise would be playing myself for a fool.

********************

He was elderly.  From South America. Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Or South Africa.  The location isn’t important.

He didn’t speak English.

He had arrived via 911 transport from a nursing home.

Because he vomited.

Once.

I’m sure there was more to the story.

But that was the story I got.

******

The family arrived later.  All ten of them. Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 In the middle of the night.  They were cool.  They stayed in the waiting room.

Except one.

I didn’t mind.  I can work in front of family.  And now I had someone who could not only give me an idea of the patient’s baseline, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 but who could also communicate with the patient.

*****

When Family Member arrived, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 I started to explain what tests we would run, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 when I was cut off mid-sentence.

“Why did he vomit?”

“Well, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 we aren’t sure, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 we are running tests to see what the problem might be, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 we are looking for….”

“It’s not that. Aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 Get him a blanket.  He’s cold.”

I got him two more warm blankets to go with the five that were already on the bed.

“….and we will also be checking for…”

“He doesn’t have that.”

O……kay………..

Two differential diagnoses ruled out secondary to Family Member insistence that they do not exist.

*****

I had already set up to place an IV.

I exposed the forearm and placed the tourniquet.  Ah, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 a good one!

I turned to put on my gloves.

I turned back.

The arm was covered.

“He’s cold.”

I explained that while I could keep the rest of the patient bundled up, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 I had to expose the arm for the IV.

I inserted the angiocath.

“Do you have to do that?  It hurts.  Can you not do that?”

“Actually, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 I need to do it so that I can get blood samples and give him something for nausea.”

“Are you in yet?  It hurts?  Do you have blood yet?  Oh God!  It hurts.  Why don’t you have it yet? When will you stop?”.

I had the line within 15 seconds, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 max.

*****

I left the room to get the nausea medicine.

I came back in, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 exposed the forearm where the closest IV port was located and turned to get the syringe.

When I turned back the arm was covered.

“He’s cold.”

I gave the medicine and covered the patient back up.

I turned to dispose of the syringe and then turned back to the patient.

Family Member was feeding the patient a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Where the hell did that come from!

In the middle of the night!

“Oh, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 he can’t have solid food right now!  He was vomiting!”

“He’s hungry.”

“Please put it away until we know what is wrong with your father/brother/husband/uncle/whatever.”

*****

I entered the room a few minutes later to do a straight catheterization for a specimen.

The light was off.

No biggie, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 those lights are bright!

I turned the light on, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 explained what I was going to do and bent my head to open the package and set up.

The light went out.

“It bothers his eyes.”

“I understand, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 but I have to see what I am doing.”

The light went back on.

I exposed the little bit of anatomy required for the straight cath and turned to put on my gloves.

I turned back to the patient to place the drape.

The patient was covered.

“He’s cold.”

EEEEEEEEEEEENOUGH!

I threw up my (gloved) hands in obvious frustration and said in a voice that I’m sure was a bit to loud and a bit too harsh, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 with a more than a touch of “pissed off”:

Hon, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 you have GOT to BACK OFF and LET ME DO MY JOB!

Family member apologized and the catheterization commenced.

The patient was covered by the time my gloves were off.

I heard the click of the light switch as I left the room.

********************

I was not proud of that outburst, aspirin 75mg pills $138.00 and it won’t garner an “Excellent” on the patient satisfaction survey.

But I was past frustrated and more than angry.

I was seething.

And I erupted.

And I wonder why I’m on medication for high blood pressure and acid reflux.

What’s next?

I need to find another field of nursing.

But that’s fodder for another post.

Beclate 200mcg Inhaler $161.00

Plendil 5mg pills $150.00 header_nursejackieThat’s Edie Falco.

Plendil 5mg pills $150.00 You remember.  She played Carmella Soprano.

Plendil 5mg pills $150.00 Great actress; I love her.

Plendil 5mg pills $150.00 Too bad I won’t be watching her new character on Showtime.

*****

“Nurse Jackie” is a new series.

I received an email from Showtime asking me if I would curate a selection of nursing experiences for an upcoming “Nurse Stories” web site that would coincide with the debut of Nurse Week and “Nurse Jackie”.

Whoa.

I don’t get email from Showtime every day, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 so this sounded pretty interesting.

I went to the website to check out the show before responding.

I made it through one video.

*****

Nurse Jackie is a competent, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 hard-as-nails, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 take-no-prisoners ER nurse.

With a heart, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 of course.

One minute she’s telling a doctor he’s full of it, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 the next minute she tells a patient to get out of her ER (classic!).

Edie Falco is perfect as the title character.

You’ve all worked with her.

Hell, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 you might even be her!

*****

My first reaction?

Oh..my..god, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 they did it!

They made a show with a strong nurse protagonist, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 and damn! if they didn’t get the ER environment down!

I had goosebumps, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 literally.

I was ready to (a) start getting Showtime, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 (b) spread the word far and wide and (c) take the job.

But then…

*****

They started grabbing her chest.

I think in a the short video I watched (five minutes?) Nurse Jackie had her breasts fondled by three men.

Oh great.

My first thought?

Here we go again with the nurse-as-sex-object stereotype.

(Actually, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 my first thought is that I must be working in the wrong hospitals.)

But it got worse.

*****

Nurse Jackie is a drug addict.

Has back pain.

Snorts crushed up Percocets.

Oh no they didn’t………

*****

Oh yes.

They did.

Now, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 would somebody please tell me why, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 why? they had to portray this nurse as a drug addict?

Did they not see that they had the potential for one hell of a nurse character here?

Did they not see that they could break the mold of media stereotypes in nursing and pave new ground?

Did they not see that there is enough material to build a nurse character out of what happens in the ER alone without adding the oh-so-subtle touch of drug addiction?

*****

If you’re an nurse who spends a lot of time with other people fondling you, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 you might like this show.

If you’re an RN and addicted to drugs, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 you might like this show.

In fact, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 why don’t you go check out the website for yourself.

Watch the video, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 get a feel for the character.

Tell me what you think.

Tell Showtime what you think.

And if you are really pissed, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 write to The Truth About Nursing.

I already did.

*****

As for me?

I (a) am not subscribing to Showtime, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 (b) will not promote the show to anyone outside this blog post and (c) did not take the job.

I am so sick, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 and so tired, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 of stupid media portrayals of nurses.

Didn’t watch “ER”.  No “Grey’s Anatomy”. Plendil 5mg pills $150.00 Won’t watch “House”.

Here goes trying to explain to my patients, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 again, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 that “no, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 I don’t watch that show because of the portrayal of nursing.”

*****

You blew it, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 Showtime.

Of course, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 it’s not too late to rectify the issues, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 the show has not debuted yet.

But know this:

No matter how funny, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 how dramatic or how well written “Nurse Jackie” is, plendil 5mg pills $150.00 you are doing nothing to advance or promote the nursing profession. Plendil 5mg pills $150.00 But then I guess the goal is ratings and nothing defines a “hit” like sex and drugs.

*****

“Nurse Jackie” is described as “Saint!  Sinner!”.

Saint.

Sinner.

Sound familiar?

Yeah.

Sigh.
