Default Learning.....

Recently instead of posting, I've been trying to figure out where to find things and how to do things. My little "vacation" from Nursing Voices is not because I am not interested, but because I have found some interesting places to go and see.

For instance, I just learned that one of my stories was posted on code blog. Geena sent me the message, but I just now found how to get to those messages. (still haven't found exactly where my story was posted, but I'll get there.

I really enjoy being part of this Nursing Voices Community.

Oh by the way, did you see I put an avatar on my posts? I don't know how I did it, but I did it!

Well so long as you come back to visit us

It is a great avatar, that is the great thing about places like this, you learn skills you didn't even know you needed.

Your avatar is very cute

The internet seems quite overwhelming at first, but once you learn the ropes it's all easy ridin' from there.

I posted your story here!
It got quite a few comments!

Geena, thank you for showing me where you posted my story. I was overwhelmed by the number of people who had experienced the same thing I did without any "actual" cause.

I've often times tried to psychoanalyze what happened to me; the psychiatrist doesn't even really know what happened, he said it just "happens sometimes."

I am glad to say that I am much better now. I don't have suicidal thoughts nor do I look for the bad in my life. I have to admit though, I immediately talk to my husband when I feel that "fear" that envelopes me when I think it could happen again.

I have a world to live for; and I am certainly not going to teach my daughters that taking your own life is a viable options when things are not going well.

I think everyone has suicidal thoughts within their lifetime. It's good that you have your husband to talk to when you start having dark thoughts. You will grow stronger from the bad times if you remember that life is worth living.

Hear! Hear! Mother Jones is right - we all have those thoughts at one point or another. And it sounds like a cliche' but it really is true: This, too shall pass. And we become stronger when we go through the hard/dark times.

On a lighter note - I love your avatar!
