How Did I Get Here?

Standard

What happens when the nurse becomes the patient?  I’m not talking about when you have a cold or the flu, I’m talking about chronic illnesses or conditions that seemingly keep you locked into this role for months or years.

You have to try to remember to do all of the things you teach your patients to do and learn how to do some new things.  Like, being patient, listening to and following instructions, acting as your own advocate (unless you have someone who can act on your behalf or advise you), asking questions and, of course, keeping your spirits up and doing whatever you have to do to get better!

Read on and find out what I’ve been going through in this role and learn something from my experiences.
