My name is Cory. I am a mom, a wife, a NaNa, and a critical care nurse that lives in Nashville, TN. I have found my calling in ER/Trauma/ICU. Each day I find myself experiencing life changing events and hope that by reading my posts, you will experience and feel some of what I do. If you read nothing else, please
take time to read "The Hardest Question Ever Asked". It's my very first posting.
And if for some reason you think you see your story here.....you don't. It's not about you or anyone you know. =)
To those of you who choose to comment on my blogs, especially the one about All Female Nurses Are Perverts and Unprofessional (from August) I challenge you to leave your name rather than to continue to appear so highly uneducated as to lump all of the thousands of nurses into one category because of the nurses that gave you poor nursing care. Or worse, to show how uneducated you really are like the second commenter by not even being able to compose a gramatically correct sentence. Leaving anonymous messages shows an ignoble lack of courage. But, thanks for taking the time to read my blog anyway. Have a great day!
I hope she remembered All the people who said they cared And knew that we really did
I hope she remembered How happy we all were when we were together When we were laughing until the tears ran down our faces
I hope she remembered Our arms around one another And saying we loved her
I hope she remembered The pain she saw in our eyes when she left Because we hoped she would return
I hope she won't remember The feeling of being so alone, The feeling that no one cared The feeling that she couldn't call on us The feeling that life wasn't worth living The feeling that her children didn't need her The feeling that her friends didn't need her
I hope she knows That we will remember her That we will love her regardless That we don't stand in judgement That we shared in her pain Just as she did it and we have a daily reminder of it
Many of us lost a wonderful friend a few days ago and will never forget the loss. She was an amazing woman with two beautiful children and a husband who is a physician so on the outside appeared to have the "perfect life". She just had more pain than she could deal with. There aren't enough words to describe her beauty, her humor or her love for people. What she did was selfish yes, but that won't make us love her any less. She injected herself with a lethal dose of drugs and then cut her wrist.
I feel good about where I am at in my life today. I am blessed in so many ways. As always, thanks for listening. (dual post)
