Not frontline but still anxious
I used to manage an assisted living facility, but moved into school nursing for more hours. Our school is one of the few that hasn't shut down amid this pandemic, because we are a residential treatment school. Girls still come from all over the country to receive therapy at our place. I have asthma and allergies. My normal O2 is 90%. So, I'm having a tough time keeping myself emotionally centered. I want to help and have a job, but my situation also makes me afraid... Any support is welcome.
Thanks for all you do, you who are REALLY on the frontlines. I'm proud of my colleagues!
Thank you for sharing your experience. My heart goes out to you. And I agree with Beth -- you are on the front line too, just in a different way. Please take care of yourself.
You *are* on the front lines. You may not be in critical care, but you are caring for young women who must have care, regardless of the crisis. Take time for yourself, and know you are surrounded by caring thoughts and gratitude from your nurse colleagues!
