The Joys of Nursing

DAAAAAMMMMNNIIIIITTTT!!!! I hate having to work for a living. Can't someone just pay me to sit and watch HGTV and DIY, drink diet coke, and blog? I mean, COME ON! Owning your own business has some perks, but there is so much crap to put up with, some days I don't even want to get out of bed. I have to be professional and nice and all that other crap. Sometimes I wish I could just say, "Could you please try to get sick between the hours of 10am and 3pm, Mon thru Fri? I am trying to go shopping and you keep calling me with all these nursing issues and at this moment I don't want to be a nurse. I don't want to come out and look at your pee to see if there's blood in it. REALLY!!!!" But, instead, here I go...to look at the patient's newest "present". Sometimes, if I am REALLY lucky, I get to look at their saved poop. AND if the stars are all inline, I get to view giant loogies that they have saved in a tissue. Yep, the joys of nursing.......

I think its the saved sputum that gets to me most. I can look at pee. Poop? Mey...But loogies...omg. That's when I get a little vomit in my throat. Especially when they want 'me' to take the tissue outa the baggie. Um. No thanks. Why don't 'you' take it out and just show me, lovely caregiver :)
