    This is something I've been thinking about alot lately. All the healthcare workers out there that have been absolutely through the ringer this year. Not only do they already have some of the hardest, most mentally demanding jobs ever, but recent events have amplified those conditions times a thousand. And they just continue to stick with it and do the work that needs to be done, no matter how hard it is on them or their families. They always put aside their personal issues to care for anyone and everyone.

    So that's pretty much it. Just wanted to say that I appreciate every single healthcare worker out there. Also, same goes for all the essential workers out there too. You have have been the ones that kept everything going through all this. Thank you.

    Absolutely. They have been on the front lines since day one and have witnessed things we couldn't even begin to imagine. They certainly deserve all the praise in the world for the work they have done and continue to do.

    Well said. I think in particular I'm most thankful for nursing home workers and mental health workers, during this time. I've always admired that work and always thought I wasn't cut out for it. Admiration has doubled or tripled for them in last 12 months. Both are far too often thank-less.

    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!

    Have you gotten the vaccine yet? If so how was it? Hope your staying safe and like everyone else here I would like to thank you and everyone you work with for the job that you do.
