I'm tired of trying to wring out some responsibility from stupid fucks who just don't give a shit. Fuck 'em... they're on their own.

RE: The Whispering Thread
Its strange how we're expected to watch someone die, go "ok, next" and get on with the shift, as if we didn't just witness a horrible death. Sometimes it's a relief - it's hard to see a patient suffer for weeks on end literally begging for death - its mercy in a way.

But tonight - this guy wasn't suffering. He was expected to go home. I had him last week - lovely man, kind family. He was just back on our unit recovering from a procedure that he initially didn't want performed last week. He was sitting up talking. God dammit. I hate it when we have a long mega code and keep getting a pulse back, they're aware of what's going on every few minutes, and then we keep fucking losing them. It sucks. It fucking sucks. Sadcryface

Three patients tonight in my zone. Three. At least the other two were DNRs. I just. I'm ready to go home. It feels like there's more dead patients on this hall than living. In my zone there's only one patient that has the potential to ever leave this hospital alive. And *my* assigned patient that's a fucking vegetable - not gonna happen for him tonight. I hate taking care of patients with no brain function, no hope.

It wasn't usually this tough losing people in the ED - I had plenty of days where I'd work tons of codes. But here? We get to know the patients and their families. At least I'm not working pediatrics - I don't know how those nurses cope. I lost one of my pediatric home health patients and my heart still breaks when I think about him. When we lost kids in the ED, we'd all cry about it together, have a debrief - and we never even knew the patients and their families. But the ICU peds nurses? I know I couldn't do it.

0700 can't come fast enough. Sad

My mother was both a pediatric nurse and a at-home care giver before her current administrative position, so I can relate by proxy.

It's kinky because it is taboo. So long as you respect the informed consent of other people in real life, nobody should be ashamed of their fantasy kinks; that's why they're fantasy.

It's one of the reasons I run - clears my head. It's also the reason I only read girly books now - everything turns out ok and you get a happy ending.
