I am Kitt and I volunteered to moderate this forum as the topic is close to my heart. I am a retired RN, 26 years working in ER/ICU and then as the Nurse Manager of Emergency Services and Respiratory Care. My husband and I have 4 children, one of our boys was killed in a car crash in 1990.
I am from the Midwest USA, the heratland of America
I have Depression and was first dx in 1982 so I know this disorder well.
I joined HW after being with a strictly Mental Health site as a moderator for 10 months. I felt I needed to branch out and belong to a group that covered medical and mental health issues. The people here have become family to me.
I have always been a care giver but have learned to take care of myself now so I have no more guilt over doing something just for me.
I believe I have a good sense of humor and I love to help others. Team work is very important to me. I am proud to be a part of this forum.
I am glad to be here. I am truly happy you have joined us.
