Love to Hate
It's really hard to explain but my job is a love/hate relationship. I love being a nurse and taking care of patients but I hate the BS that goes along with it. For any of you out there that are nurses, I am sure I don't have to explain. Some days I really, really love what I do and being a homecare nurse, I feel I can really make a difference. Other days, I wonder what the heck I was thinking for ever wanting to do this for a living! One thing always come back in my face, and that is the saying, "you can't take care of others until you take care of you first". It's easy to self neglect because of guilty feelings, lack of time, and many more excuses. Trust me, take care of yourself. Because as my mother always used to say, "No one else will look out for you but YOU"!
