Nursing school is really, really stressful. Anyone who has been through it (or med school or grad school or any other tough program knows what I mean here). :banghead:

On the plus side, I'm now capable of catheterizing any of you now. :7

My love is never inconstant.

But regarding the catheter business? Better bring a cannon.

3. I was catheterized once after delivering a baby and that was
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 09:49 PM by tnlefty
enough! Can you score any good drugs? Not that I'd want you to get into trouble or anything, but it would make the thought of being catheterized better.

Good luck and I don't think you'll go insane.

28. Thank you. No - it was Media.
Still don't understand it much, though. I tend to blow hot and cold on the subject, really.

Cuz that's fucked-up. I don't know who I'd feel worse for.

26. Nonsense.
Grimace married Sally Field in a Satanist ceremony last March in Wichita. It was a very moving experience for all concerned.

11. I'll love you.
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 10:01 PM by Marshall McClueless
I mean, you seem pretty low maintenance. And I don't live near you. And I'll probably never meet you. And you're just a presence on an internet board that I can choose to avoid should I so wish. That seems like the sort of love I can handle. What have I got to lose? All aboard the love train!

17. Of course...
Loving you is like gravity - It would take NASA, the JPL and billions of dollars to overcome it.

But what about what's his face? Can he handle Sarahbelle on a mission?


(Done the grad school thing - a hell of a lot of work, but it can also be a lot of fun.)

Anyway, we'll stick by you when you come home tired and post bitchy posts. You are our SarahBelle!

Khash.

22. He can hack it.
I'm notoriously "not a complainer", so when he hears me upset, he's always right there for me. He doesn't ask for much and does a lot for me because my schedule is tougher right now. I thought this period in my life I'd have to be incredibly strong (and I do), but it's nice to have someone who is there for me to lean on sometimes. It makes it all more bearable.

You're amazing, Khash. So damned sweet to me. :hug:

34. My sister went through it at age 40...
Graduated as a Nurse Practitioner....

She loves it...

It's hard, but very rewarding....

It was the nurses, all the nurses, that kept me alive and kicking last year for 36 days....

Those angels of mercy prodded, pinched and coaxed me back from the land of the dead.....
