I have been working a ton lately. I finished my 2nd semester of grad school!!! HOORAY. Have had the worst tooth ache, and got an expensive diagnosis from a really unprofessional dentist, “wow, this is really bad”. “for you this procedure would be like $3,000+, I mean but for me, I can just get one of my friends to do it and they will give me a really good deal, but for you really expensive”. “this doesn’t look good for you”.
So I have learned a lot in the past 2 weeks.
Here are my new top 10 life lessonz.
1. In cases of medical negligence and malpractice, just go ahead and sue. It’s better for both parties in the long run. Better for the victim because they will have ultimate closure and appropriate compensation for damages. Better for the practitioner because that door is legitimately closed after they have been negligent, and maybe they will be able to sleep at night. I don’t know.
2. Seriously just sue.
3. Even if you have PTSD when it comes to the dentist, you should still go how ever often they recommend. So that when you do finally go there isn’t a lot already wrong.
4. If the nursing aide puts a fever in the computer for vital signs, recheck it before you call the doctor on call. ROOKIE MISTAKE!
5. Working 3 shifts in a row is hard, but also kind of a dream….just plan accordingly.
6. Don’t work overtime when your homework isn’t done, or you will get in big trouble with mom.
7. IPHONEs are RADICAL!
8. Pinecone and Minkee can get along. WHO KNEW!?!?!!?
9. Simon Baker circa 2001-2003 in the legal drama, “The Guardian”….so dreamy. His “American” accent isn’t fooling anyone, and he is so Australian looking…let’s be real. But he is a dream nonetheless and the show isn’t awful. SO All in all two thumbs way UP!
10. REALLY floss, and REALLY brush your teeth, everyday, twice a day. It will make life much easier, and less expensive. You are investing in your health. AMEN!
11. When people find out you are a nurse and they also do something in the medical industry, they may just assume that you can talk to each other like you work together, and that all professional boundaries are not necessary, or like they are not your health care provider…which is a false assumption. Let it be known.
Those are the lessons. Sorry for being heavy on the dental references. IDK, it’s just what is going on for me right now.
