to NOT go into nursing.
My daughter is a sweetie, she is a hard working, trained college athlete.
But, if I had to beg, nag, cajole or threaten her one more time to drink more water, take her meds, do her PT, ice her knee, eat more, move more (prevents blood clots), and stop watching every trash show on TV and read something worthwhile...
I thought I was going to kill her.
I don't think she knew that. ( she was on narcotics)
I seemed patient, kind, and loving.
But inside I felt like screaming.
I can definitely handle being her nurse for a couple more weeks, but I could NEVER do this full time.
How do nurses do it? In fact, how do ALL caregivers do it?
I have always respected those that care for others.
Now I will worship them.
There must be a special spot in heaven for all caregivers.
Strike that, I KNOW there is.
