I am a nurse in RL. The picture’s I’ve seen others do depicting our worlds current situation always touch my heart so I decided to do one of my own.
You may not know this but nurses have given their all long before this world crisis started. Most of us love our jobs and do the job because we have a passion for helping and loving others. It’s what makes our job “doable” for us.
On an average day I will get attacked both verbally and physically. I may laugh with someone who has forgotten their own name and I may shed a tear for a family member who is left watching as their loved one slips into a person they do not recognize. I’ve held many hands as they took their last breath in this world. It really never gets any easier to watch a family lose someone they love. As nurses we give everything we are to our jobs. We take it personal when our patients aren’t doing well. Believe me when I tell you that each person who passes on our shift.. is mourned.
To say this job is hard is a harsh understatement. The current situation has only made it more difficult. Thank you to all my fellow nurses who serve so willingly. Thank you for doing a job that is often thankless. Thank you for “playing cards” Thank you for wearing your “Dr’s. Stethoscope” . Nurse to nurse… I see you.. and I thank you..
