Sometimes you have to take a break from being a nurse and forget about the ones you take care of to remember that they are not your babies. I did that today since I wasn’t actually at work. You see, sometimes when you grow so attached to your patients, it’s hard to be objective. So it’s very healthy and therapeutic to take a “mental break” and allow yourself to come back refreshed and ready to take on the new day and new challenges… at least that’s what I’m hoping. I’ll find out tomorrow.
