We all learn together, allot of times, when I see someones post I will look it up in my nursing books, and my human anatomy books my drug books, on line, all the resourses I have available to me. some things I know and just do a quick refresh on, other things, it is a learning experience! and I enjoy learning about
new things! When I went back to school after retiring from the Air Force, it was was such a thrill for me, I think it was the best time of my life! After my divorce is finalized I have been thinking about
trying to go back to school again, I don't know if I can stand it or not, but????? Before when I was first put on disability I took art classes, sculpture and drawing, because those classes I could get up and walk around and I didn't have to sit in a chair for any long period of time, and the instructors knew about
my back problems and they worked with me so I could do the required work! Now I have trouble doing sculpture and drawing because of the problems I have using my hands and my arms! So I had to give those activities up. But.... maybe ...just maybe... I could find a way to manage to take some classes and get through them! It might sound funny or crazy but I love learning new things! I find it facinating and amazing, learning about
how the human body works, and all about
disease and how it affects the human body! There are so many things I find interesting and learning about
them,.... well it, ...kind of..... makes me feel young, like I am a little kid and there is so much stuff that I find awe-inspiring! I guess I am rambling! But that is one of the things I love about
this forum I learn so much from everyone here! directly or indirectly!
