As an RN (Psych) thank you ALL for your kind words. As most of my colleagues would say, "It's what we do..." BUT this year has been exponentially hard on all of us for various reasons. Some of us have died from Covid; some of us have worked until we had nothing left...Some have had to endure such personal pain and emotional pain that they are now suffering from PTSD. I do think that there is not one healthcare provider that has not felt the love and appreciation of the country.
(Ironically, we in psych, did not get PPE initially because we weren't on the frontline, although our patients came from would would now be considered super spreader areas-Boarding Homes, Group Homes, Shelters, the streets, etc.)
Now, even as an RN, and 66, since I am not working in a facility, but a school, I am scrambling just like everyone else in PA to get my vaccine. God Bless us all and may we be kept safe!
