EDIT: Ibuprofen can cause problems. I would not suggest taking it, for instance, if you have problems with your stomach, because the drug can cause stomach-age, nausea and digestive problems. Also, it can heavily interfere with other painkillers and especially with antihypertensive drugs. Also, it can cause asthma-attacks when used by people with asthma.
But now to the bitching part...
I am sitting at home, with both upper and lower sideband in my foot ruptured. I am waiting for surgery, which will happen in a week and the pain is... exquisite. It even hurts like hell when I take a shower and the jet of water directly hits my foot.
And the sad part? I love my work, I really, really
do, but right now I actually think that this
is better than work. I am a nurse and I am sick of racking up 18 overtime hours in 4 days and of having night shifts were I alone am responsible for 25, sometimes even 27 patients and where I and my co-workers don't even bring something to eat anymore, because usually we don't even have the time to drink something and usually still
go home late.
I work in an oncology ward, we have many very confused and sometimes quite aggressive patients with brain tumors and just a couple of weeks ago, one of them beat the shit out of me. Unthinkable what he might have done with one of my female co-workers. And the doctors on my ward don't give a crap, they don't even cared to ask if I am well the next day. And those are not even the worst things at work right now...
Sorry, guys, I guess this thread is usually more light hearted, but I am in pain, I am pissed and I just needed to vent a little bit, so thanks for your patience! :)
Thank you for doing such a stressful job, I always think highly of Nurses, always there to put us back together when we open ourselves up by accident(I have a couple of scars, you could say), through to looking after people when they are in for a stay to recover.
Good luck with the surgery, fingers crossed that it works for you :).
