I write this while grabbing a quick fifteen minute break. I’m sitting in oversized scrubs, aching legs, but with a big smile on my face, for once right!
I have missed nursing so much. It’s what I’m good at, it’s my thing. Whether I’m holding someone’s hand, feeding, dishing out medications, making a patient laugh or even crying with them, it’s what I am good at.
Critical care is not what I had in mind. But I have 2.5 hours left of my long day shift and I already feel sad that I am off until Thursday.
Weirdo, right? Yeah, I know.
