Black angel would be funny if they didn’t keep dying

February 11, 2015

I thought nursing school would prepare me for my career but nursing is a job learned while doing. Nursing is like someone telling you exactly how a particular jigsaw puzzle should be put together, step by step, best strategies for completion, what to do while laying all the pieces and describing what it will look like when you are done but you are missing 3 pieces and have less than 5 minutes to put it all together. But your puzzle has feelings, friends, family and personal barriers to be putting back together. The puzzle wants to be together but only if it doesn’t have to do anything it doesn’t really want to do. The puzzle wants to be exactly as it was before but it’s missing crucial pieces that are lost forever. And the puzzles friends and family don’t believe you care because you need the puzzle to change and not be the same.

In the middle of the puzzle you realize you really don’t like puzzles.

    But it seems like you are passionate, kind and good at (helping) puzzles.

    hmmmm. I usually like it but when it seems helpless, hopeless and beyond finishing my inclincation is to put it back in the box, up on the shelf and walk away. le sigh
