OMG - Annie that is such a wonderful technique - I want to take one of your classes. I hate to say what the plane cost would be to get there.... I took care of my husband until he took his last breath at home and I was working at hospice at the time and I stayed working for them for a year. I worked at a Home Health Agency as the Director and I didn't want to do patient care for that reason; however, being that we were short staffed I did see a patient load which was difficult at times. It isn't that I can't do it....it's just that it is harder than it was before emotionally. So I left the company since I only got 3 weekends off in the entire year and I'm looking for a new job at this time. It is rather frustrating what is expected of nurses - things have changed over the 26 years that I have been a nurse. My husband and I made it that I can afford my home and be picky, but it is the insurance that is the issue. I'm paying a lot of money for those benefits and medications. That's the only reason I need to work.

I am getting there slowly sweetie. Still have panic attacks and still miss him everyday. I try to not be in the apartment that much and I do a lot with the Salvation Army now. They have been good to me.
