confession of a nurse


and no, it's not what you think it is....

nurse : doc, you know you have changed....

me: how so?

nurse : you used to be so fierce....

me : really?

nurse : yes, so fierce that i refused to join your department!

me : so, now how?

nurse : now you not fierce anymore. maybe you are getting old.

ha ha, how true! the older we get, we should mellow down & not hold on too steadfastly to the high ideals we have set for ourselves during younger days. some things don't change much, eg. work ethics, & sometimes the more you try to change (for the better), the more it feels like hitting a brick wall.

and, boy, have i had some terrible headaches from the impact.

so let's just let sleeping dogs lie.......and i may just live longer!

Wow, you must be very fierce when you are a young doctor. Good that you are no longer that fierce or else we will see you writing posts here to scold people. :)

Mun,

looking back, that nurse is right, but i am glad someone noticed the change!

LOL. I can't imagine you being fierce. Irritated and frustrating maybe. But fierce? Hmmmm...
