This is not so much a blog post, and it is an apology for not posting. I just can’t really think of anything to write about right now. This is getting me kinda down. I feel like I should blame this all on winter. Oh, and nursing school. I promised myself that I would not write about school on this blog, as it is here to remind me of how well rounded my life is. But, right now I don’t feel very well rounded. All I have on the brain is diabetes and tardive dyskinesia.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, because I am very inspired by nursing right now. Since starting my clinicals on a med/surg floor at Abbott, I really feel good about this career choice. I’ve realized that I can do anything.
Remember that song from high school that was all about lessons you need to know before you leave high school? Something about a letter to the class of 1999 – that I think they redo each year for that class. One of the things he says in it is to do one thing everyday that scares you. I’ve really been following that advice recently. I’ve done some scary shit the last few weeks. Things that I will do all the time as a nurse, but there is something about the first time that is terrifying.
Despite the terror, each time I do one of these things I get a little bit stronger, and a little bit more excited about nursing. So, bring on the wound vacs and NG tubes, I can handle it.
Also, can I get some suggestions about other stuff to blog about? Just throw some topics at me, and I promise I will be inspired!
