I am a registered nurse, have had 4 kids, worked in both hospitals and in home care settings. I am also a patient. I suffer from polyautoimmune disorders and possibly ME which I continue trying to get clarified, which is a very difficult road to be on.
I hope I can be a source of encouragement, helpful to each of you who might feel intimidated by the medical world, tests, medications and understanding your disease/disorder. I do not diagnose - let's make that clear at the very beginning. I know my scope of practice and am very content to work within nursing.
Feel free to ask me questions. It makes me feel useful to still be able to contribute online, keep up with all the latest, and take continuing education.
