Human Bodies

The one thing about being an ER nurse for years, is that we become really good at triaging illnesses.

We can become fine tuned to have the ability to pick out a condition, a disease or an illness in a stranger at a grocery store - of course never acknowledging or speaking a word of it. We can look at someone's veins and know what size IV we would need to start on them. It's a bit weird, but the way you look at the human body changes.

So with that being said, we intuitively have an even keener sense and awareness as to what is going on in our own bodies.

But we still push ourselves to the very limits, knowing what is physically wrong and often just take care of it ourselves.

That also makes us the worst patients.
