I've found lately that it's fun to go through a fast food drive through and tell the cashier you'd like to pay for the meal of the person behind you. It's cool and it always makes me feel better. I'm just hoping one of these times that I don't offer to pay for someone who's picking up a group order for a whole office...more
Absolutelly agree. If only it were just about patient care! I went into the profession with the noblest of intentions but after 16 years, am as near to being burned out as I could possibly be and not walk out. My problem is, I can't.

I often find myself in tears though 'cause I just can't get it all done. Twelve hour shifts are not enough time to deliver stellar patient care and put up with all the...more
No one has an inherent right to anything they don't earn. It's really sad that it is destroying the family though. Maybe she should set up a match program whereby for every dollar they earn, they get three dollars of inheritance. Isn't that creative? This is sad but it's her right to do whatever she wants with her ...more
