'10 Never Again

Soon it will be Two Thousand and Eleven
Having survived another year seems like heaven
As our friends frolic with glee
And the ball drops on the T.V.
A small voice inside cries,
“What about me? What about me? What about me?”

Yet, for many who care for mother, father or lover
This will be a night like any other
With undergarments to change
Meals to make and wounds to cover
What I'd ask of you, my good dear
With the glimmering hope of a new year
Is to make a Caregiving Resolution
That caring for yourself is part of the solution...continued  

Take care

By Rose Lucas, RN

The health care industry is looking like old Scrooge every day, between the doctors’ fees for services that don’t come with the Marcus Welby, MD bedside manner and the faster than a speeding bullet price rises in pharmaceutical drugs. The industry is looking pretty grungy and disease management is being touted as the brand new super cleaner to polish up that tarnished image. Being sold as the “warm fuzzy” of the cold, hard science of medicine, disease management (DM) programs are manned by nurses, the traditional educators in health care. ...continued

One of my questions is how much do I push and how much do I take over.  I never know if it's too much or not enough.
I am so looking forward to the conference.
