Dr. Peter Gleason

In: Uncategorized

Ozier Muhammad/The New York Times The New York Times Imagine my surprise when one of my coworkers told me that a doctor we know was arrested by the FBI. She learned about the arrest in The New York Times. (See the link above). The author discusses the murky relationships between some doctors and drug companies. [...]

Thank God Another 16 Hour Shift is Over

In: Uncategorized

I just got done with another 16 hour shift. My friends are going to happy hour, but I’m going home. My bed is calling my name. Can you hear my bed, too? It’s saying, “Mother Jones, Mother Jones, time to come home. It’s time for bed.” Wait a minute, maybe the fatigue is affecting my [...]

Shut Up, Mel

In: Uncategorized

(Warning: I’m hot, tired, and extremely opinionated today) I think Mel Gibson is a chip off the old block. His father has made hateful statements in the press about Jews, and Mel was quoted as saying that his father has never lied to him about anything in his life. As a psychiatric nurse, I’m very [...]

Help Me Say Goodbye

In: Uncategorized

Everything happens for a reason. There are days when I wonder, “Why on earth did I ever go into nursing.” Then one day I found the answer. It started coming to me the day I met Jon. Generally, when people find out I’m a psychiatric nurse, they open up and tell me all their problems [...]

Doctor, Darling

In: Uncategorized

Today’s book report is about this gem I picked up at a library book sale. Apparently the woman on the cover needed a court order to get a date. She looks normal. Oh my God, maybe she’s an axe murderer! To his dismay, Houston pediatrician Connor Malloy was about to find out. Stranded in a [...]

Mac Lemonade

In: Uncategorized

Yesterday was traumatic. I thought either my new Apple Airport Extreme, or my Mac Power Book G4, was a lemon. My sweet husband talked to a Mac specialist over the phone for nearly two hours, but regardless of what we tried, I kept loosing my Internet connection while I was blogging. That’s right, while I [...]

Nurse on the Beach

In: Uncategorized

Pretty Meg Ryan, nurse at Whitefield Memorial, was pleased with life. She had her looks, her health—and a long series of dates with the handsome Dr. Lee Corey. But Meg’s happiness was short-lived, for one day she found out about Lee’s interest in a beautiful blonde patient. Hurt and depressed, she sought solace in the [...]

One more candle on the cake.

In: Uncategorized

I’m one year older, but I’m not worried. Instead of a facelift, I’ll just buy a pair of sunglasses and become one of the beautiful people. How do you think I’d look in a little red sports car? It’s going to be another hot day, but I’m ready for it. I’m armed with another gallon [...]

Dog Tired

In: Uncategorized

This is me after working a sixteen hours. I work a double shift every Saturday, and I just got home. I’m sooooooo tired, and oh yeah, today’s my birthday. I’m going to pass out now, and dream of blowing out birthday candles, and eating chocolate cake. Yippee. Good night. Tweet

In the Heat of the Night

In: Uncategorized

Merciless heat + sitting idly at the computer while eating 5 gallons of ice cream = my expanding waistline. I never could get into a itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, yellow polka dot bikini, but now I can’t even squeeze into my “relaxed fit” jeans. Shopping for ice cream was a great adventure. If you’re my age, you [...]

Nurse Ratched

There has been a lot of chatter in the blogosphere about medical bloggers and HIPAA regulations so let me make this very clear: I write composite stories about many different people that I've cared for over the years.
