Sorry, my last post decided to post itself without being finished lol. What I was wrinting was that, that this forum has thousands of posts on these nurses ranting about
how they hate it when patients ask for their pain meds when they are due!?! And how they beleive that if you can eat, joke with them, or sleep, then your not in pain, and will withold your medication til they talk to the doctor, and ask them to review the orders....now I dont kmow about
you, but I have never been a moaner. Even when I had my son at 16 years old with absoutly no drugs or epidural, I didnt make a peep, just held on to the bed's siderails and shook really bad. So when I'm in pain, I will close my eyes and try to consitrate on other things, so what might look like sleeping to them is actually me trying not to scream, but I'm never actually "sleeping", cause if I was really sleeping, then i would go home, cause I really hate hospitals. Their's something about
hospitals that gives me chills, especially knowing that their has been quite a few people that died on the gurney I'm laying on, and in that room. And knowing that theirs alot of people in pain and suffering all around me, it's not a place for me to relax. But if you guys are ever bored, I would check out this nurses forum (I know I probably cant give out the name of the websight) but all you have to do is look it up on google, and read a few of these posts, it's scary.
