Ummm ok, so glad you are a clritical care nurse. Perhaps if I were your patient you would know I do not disrespect the hospital or any staff if you
want to go there. You don't know me, you know a blurb I wrote and assumed. Do you not know how dangerous that word is?
Case point, my mother was a LPN, I was studing to be a Dr, I was a Candy Striper for 6 years, president of our club for 2, a Pink Lady during college,
volenteer at the hospitals when I can, a cook for diabetics, my son has epelepsy from your so called caring nurses, will not get into that, my ex
drank antifreeze to kill himself so I lived in Maine Med for a year and a half while he fought to survive, then also his kidney transplant,(not just
any transplant either mind you, the transplant was that of an already infected condition and he had the same one so they matched it up. Not sure what
they are calling that transplant but when he had it, it was practiced in other countries but not America yet. It is so more organs can be used. I am
sure since you are in ICU you know of the transplant that I am talking of.) my daughter has had menengitis and lived, and the list goes on. So if you
think for a moment I am not going to respect them, you best rethink your world of words and really realize you don't know me.
I deal with people how they deal with me after I have had enough bs. So back off, you have no clue as to my life or me to make a judgement call or say
what you did. I am in 3rd or 4th stage of my autoimmune system so if you think for one minute I am not aware of the illness then you are sadly
mistaken and used to the patients you have who just nod their head and go duh, ok.
I wanted to make people aware of what they are doing in NYC because it will hit them soon. I absolutely disagree that the medical institute does not
wish to harm some, sorry my son got a purposful bad batch of OPV from our lovely Government and now he will live with their "selective" choices for
life. So, yes you may be a good nurse, this is great, we need more of people like you. Perhaps they are not telling you or you are smart enough to
know how to handle things etc. It is a wonderful gift esp in ICU. That nurse for my mother who passed, also a medical botching, was an ICU nurse, she
was wonderful for me at 16 and I will never forget her kindness. That was also 23 years ago and in the Springs. NYC is a bit harsher.
Again the post was for a head up. We also had mash units in Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx last year and the year before for the flu outbreak.
I fully believe in the right vaccines no matter what happened to my son, however I feel there is a time and place for them and research for what is
best. With out the vaccines, we would be rampet with death and contagients.
I am not attacking you, however your words do feel like an attack on me and as if I do not know how to act. I am almost to the wheelchair so yeah I
kinda need these Drs to help so I can function. I will have hospital stays and it will get worse. *Please, do not tell me it will get better. I am
being relistic here and accepting my condition. I want to be real for it. In my lifetime for what I have I am sure there will never be a cure because
it is an Orphan issue. I hope they do, but chances are they won't with out stem cell research.
Again, I am glad you are a critical care nurse. My mom was in geriatrics,(spelling), we need people who are like you who actually care, however please
do not judge the book by the cover.
Also, yes, so you know, 7 years ago I weiged 386 pounds and now I weigh 120. If this tells you how serious I am about my health and what not. I have
just eliminated Glutten and foods that have GMO's as well. I am off the soda finally, being sick does manage to give you that beauty of a gem, and
yes I monitor what I eat and what is in it. I can not take that risk either and it would be stupid of me to go homeopathic and not change my ways.
Thank you for your words, however please understand, I will always treat my drs and such with what respect they give me. This does not mean, when I
found out that the medical staff I trusted purposly misdiagnosed me for 3 years allowing for the fact I now have lesions on my liver from this.I
confronted them, head on. They did not have to admit what they did, you could see it on their faces. I will send you a pm so you will know what it is
I have and why they should have caught it. Then you tell me they were not doing it on purpose. It is not possible they did not know. I had a PT who
figured out what I have. On that note as well, I don't care for how my PT was dismissed when I tell people who figured it out. I am aware she can not
diagnose, however she was right on the head and wanted to help me after working with me for 6 months and watching me in such pain but not knowing why.
She cared and I owe that PT my life. I will forever be indebted to her, and I would gladly go thank her in person, as she is just down the road,
however due to her telling me, from what I can tell, she was fired and blacklisted. It happened a day after I confronted my GP and Neuro. It was a
back to back drs visit week.
This is the first time the Hosp I go to, cause all my records are there, much easier for staff and all involved so they can pull my records. I had not
had to do an overnight until now. Now it will standing orders of an overnight. YUCK>>>>>>
Also so you know, I think ICU nurses are generaly kinder, more aware, and every patient becomes like family. Not just the patients but the families as
well. I have dealt with many ICU nurses and they just are not the same. There is a special gift there not only to help people fight for life, but also
peace in death.
