What is a good shoe to wear being on your feet all day cashering ?Feet hurt.

Posted by Billy & Tina
[display_name id=”1″]SAS or any type of nursing shoe is good–they’re made for standing/walking in all day. Uniform shops carry them and some outlet and retail malls as well. Good luck!

I need to hide my cuts on my wrists!?I don’t need a “cutting is stupid, it’s unhealthy”, and all that cuz I KNOW! I’m trying to stop, i swear. (not to sound bitchy or anything)So problem is I have a home game for basketball tomorrow. Uniform is sleeveless. White, and I need white under armor to wear with it. I don’t have white under armor.

Plus, make up I used once, and omfg did it hurt like hell. So PLEASE any other ways to hide the cuts. I’d rather not have the whole school knowing I’m a cutter and insulting me and all this other shit people do when they find stuff out about people they don’t like.

Outlawed: Arm warmers, Under Armor Long selves, Wrist bands…and…I’m forgetting something, I know I am.

Please help!

[display_name id=”1″]I’m not sure if this would be outlawed, but try some of that gauze bandage wrap that people use to wrap up a strained muscle (I used it to wrap my shins when I got shin splints in cross country, and to wrap my wrist when I sprained it). They are usually white or beige-colored and should be ok for a game. I would wear mine during cross country meets to prevent more injury to my shins, and the officials at the race were fine with me running with it on. I often see basketball players with gauze bandage wraps like that around their knees and shins for similar reasons. You should be fine.The wrap that I have is reusable and attaches securely with vel-cro. You can find one at a sports store or probably at like a walmart (I got them from my mom, who’s a nurse and has them in her closet. Ha.) Wrap one around your wrist and secure it around your hand (like in the picture below), between your thumb and pointer finger. Just be sure not to cut off circulation with it! (I did that too often with my wrist… My hand turned blue and numb, not good. Haha). If you wrap it right, it should be perfect for you to play comfortably at the game, and with no one able to see your cuts. Here is an idea of what I am referring to: (don’t worry, this is a picture I found off google) :]


Good luck! With the game and especially with overcoming cutting. I’m glad you know it’s harmful, and I’m sure you can do it! Don’t feel bad about yourself. That’s just how you cope, and it is understood. Just keep trying hard and find healthier outlets, and you’ll be alright. Email me at goldfish129@yahoo.com if you need to talk! I wish you all the best, hun! :]

Good place to buy nursing scrubs?I need them super fast. I tried DD’s discounts, found a couple.. Walmart ones are so stiff and suck in fitting.. Target doesn’t carry them… Can’t order online cuz need ’em quick.. Any suggestions??

[display_name id=”1″]I get mine from our outlet mall. The name of the store is Uniform Outlet. I even find scrubs in Goodwill.

I am pregnant I think?Okay, my period is 2 months late and I had morning sickness (all day) last month. Now, when I suck in my stomach there is a little bump that won’t go away. I am scared to go to the doctor because then my parents will find out. But my closes are getting tight on my bum. I have 3 weeks left of school and I have to wear an uniform. So, there is no way I can get bigger closes. I thought about an abortion but I am to scared to get one. I guess I have been avoiding the topic for 2 months. Except today my friend said my boobs looked really big and that last month I was sick all the time at school and she asked if I was pregnant and I told her I was. I took home pregnancy test (10) they all came back pregnant. I have this baby in me and I am stuck with it. The guy doesn’t know I don’t know how I can ever tell anyone. So, what should I do? What should I do about my clothes? What should I do about the people in my life? I AM ONLY GOING TO GET FATTER!!!!!!

[display_name id=”1″]I would suggest Food Stamps, WIC and Medicaid – see if you qualify. Medicaid covers midwives in some states, so be sure to check out all your options.Get, beg, buy, steal or borrow one of these books. Even if you choose a hospital birth these books are still great reads. It shows birth as a positive, beautiful and empowering experience.

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth: Discover the Proven Wisdom That Has Guided Thousands of Women Through Childbirth With More Confidence, Less Pain, and Little or No Medical Intervention by Ina May Gaskin.

Spiritual Midwifery, 4th Edition: The classic book on home birth! The first section details the experiences of parents and midwives during the birth experience. The second section is a technical manual for midwives, nurses, and doctors. Includes information on prenatal care and nutrition, labor, delivery-techniques, care of the new baby, and breast-feeding. Very informative stuff.

Consider hiring a doula . . . . .
A doula is a knowledgeable, experienced companion – who stays with them through labor, birth and beyond. Birth doulas offer emotional support, encouragement and wisdom throughout labor and birth.

Consider giving birth upright so that gravity helps instead of having to push a baby up hill out of you (such as giving birth laying flat on your back) Even if you are in a hospital request a squat bar, squatting also allows your pelvic outlet to increase that crucial 1/2 – 1 inch. Http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h…

Also when in labor – walk as much as possible, stretch and just n general keep moving – do not let the contractions paralyze you. You will feel more pain if you do let them paralyze you.

I went though childbirth without any meds for the pain. Focus on the goal, not the pain.

The Portable Pediatrician is another useful book to have around, it covers everything from birth to age 5. Http://www.amazon.com/Portable-Pediatric…

Please breastfeed! I am not a militant pro-teat crazy but it has great immunological benefits, it also helps you loose the weight faster and it’s a great bonding mechanism. Http://kellymom.com/ Is a great site and so is Http://llli.org/ Le Leache Int’l Conversely is you choose not to or cannot breast feed, formula feed and don’t feel guilty or look back. WalMart brand is some of the cheapest formula around. Try to stay on a schedule for the first couple months this will make having a schedule later easier on the both of you. For the first couple of month the baby needs to eat every 3 hours barring them sleeping through the night whenever they get to that. Investing in a co-sleeper is a great idea, so you don’t have to wander far to get the baby in the middle of the night. Sleep every free moment you have! Http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.d…

Take you multi-vits and take your iron pills with a glass of orange juice – better absorption. You can over-indulge on healthy stuff all day long but keep your sweet tooth in check – also munchy foods, not too much. This will also help you from gaining too much weight.

Also bundle your baby when they should sleep, this will get hir programmed that when they are bundled they should sleep. I still bundle my 16 month old and she never gives me trouble going to nap or bed.

The best suggestion I can make is get a Paragard – these reasons I got mine; no hormones (can’t do regular birth control due to the synthetic hormones), is idiot proof (no pills, patches or rings to remember or forget) and it’s good for up to 12 yrs. Also it’s compatible with breastfeeding.

That’s all the advice I can think of, I hope it helped. If you need someone to talk to email me.
Good luck.

A nice stylish clock that doesn’t tick?Can any one help. Im trying to buy a nice clock that doesn’t tick. I know the answer is a digital one, though they are all large office looking things and I need it to be stylish for my therapy room. I do clinical aromatherapy , etc and that’s why it needs to not tick. I know I could buy a small nurse type one that pins to my uniform, but that is no use as i wouldn’t be able to see something so small without my glasses and I don’t wear them to do therapies. Has anyone got any suggestions please.
Sorry ttried taking of the second hand from the clock I have and it was still ticking and I have also deformed the clock in the process. It was worth a try. Thanks any way
Sorry can’t tock either. No ticking, No tocking.

[display_name id=”1″] Seiko makes a line of clocks they call “QuietSweep”. Their movements are designed not to tick. But some can be a bit pricey I think. If I stumble on something else, I’ll try to update.Here’s a website where you can view some of what Seiko has to offer. Please note I am not affiliated with this website nor do I particularly recommend it. It always pays to shop around in order to buy brand name watches at discount prices

UPDATE: If you’re looking for something more fashionable and are willing to “buy a pig in a poke”, you can go to e-Bay and search for “vintage wall clock” or “kitchen wall clock”. Specifically you need to look for older clocks which cords that plugged into a wall outlet. That sort of clock didn’t usuallly tick. Although the motors and gears in some created a soft hum that shouldn’t be too obtrusive.

Can someone help me find car print nursing scrubs? I am looking to buy nursing scrubs with any car or automotive theme but have been unable to find any. Thanks!

Viscous coupling, and tire tread sizes..? Hello, On my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee it has a NV249 transfer case which is Full-time 4WD, it uses a viscous coupler. When I bought the Jeep a year ago, I noticed after the first 3k miles my front tires had lost a lot of tread on the front tires on the outer part of the tread. I suspected after asking and researching that it was the viscous coupler that was bad and probably scrubbed the outside of my front tires.I had an alignment done and it was within spec. So i bought a Brand new VC and replaced my old one. I didn’t notice much at all difference when turning with the new vc and the old one… Maybe a little less binding but the stuff steering was still there… And Chrysler says the “new” 249’s have a thicker fluid so there is some stiff steering even with a new VC…Now when i changed the VC i did a tire rotation to save my tires as they were brand new. Basically the tires tread depth was this… The front were around 5mm outside depth, and inside was around 7 1/2 mm…. The rear tires were 7 1/2 on the outside and 7 1/2 inside.. So basically i lost 2-3mm on the outer tread on the front tires… The middle and inside tread was the same on all 4 tires tho.

Its been about 4k miles now since i did all this and i noticed again my front tires (which were the rear) are now at 4 1/2 to 5mm tread outside, and the inside tread is at 7mm… So i had lost another 2-3mm on the outside of the front tires… So now all 4 tires are 4 1/2 to 5mm outside and 7mm inside…

Could driving with 2 tires that were 5mm outside tread, vs 2 tires that were 7mm outside tread have ruined this new viscous coupler ? Even tho the middle and inside tread was 7mm on both sets ?

Am i making any sense here ? Cause i noticed on the rear tires if i drive in a straight line the outer tread doesn’t even touch the ground i can see like half an inch that isn’t dirty with say sand and the rest of the tire is..

[display_name id=”1″]Have you checked the front ball joints.they could be loose and causing your tire wear problem.

Questions and Answers

Do nurses face any financial or insurance issues that aren’t common for non-nurses?I am looking into putting together a financial seminar for nurses and as of now am planning to have the subject be on social security and saving for retirement. However, the goal is the have the presentation as tailored and relevant to those who attend, so career specific issues would be great.For example, I was told by an insurance salesman once that it is extremely difficult for hair dressers to get life insurance for some reason…

[display_name id=”1″]One thing nurses should keep in mind is the cost of apparel and equipment. Medical professionals need gear like stethoscopes to meet employer standards and patient needs. Nurses, in particular, will also need a wardrobe of durable nursing scrubs. Investing in a professional uniform may be a challenge for newcomers to the world of nursing, so finding a discount medical scrubs retailer is always recommended. Otherwise, nurses generally have bright financial futures. Hope your seminar prepares caregivers to enjoy their best years!
Why do they wear their uniforms constantly?Why do people in the military wear their uniforms to Wal-mart. I mean really… There is no need for it. Just never understood it. I know people are going to say its pride and honor. Why also do they get discounts. Why don’t EMT’s get them and other hard working people in America. We are all the same, sorry, i just don’t think they are any more special and you and I. We all pay taxes and we all do work. I know some will say they risk their lives, but police officers risk their lives, people at the zoo, and a lot of other jobs. Thoughts?

[display_name id=”1″]My dad is in the military and after working all day, he does his errands so he can go straight home. Plenty of people do that, some wear uniforms to work and some don’t. What about nurses and doctors in scrubs? That’s a uniform. I have police officers and doctors/nurses who are regular customers at my job and sometimes wear a uniform and sometimes don’t. Yes we do get discounts, but so do police officers, doctors, firefighters, and others who risks their lives to help keep us safe, from my experience anyway. They risk their lives every day by doing their job and I greatly appreciate it.
What is a good personalized gift to give 4 of my good friends that I just graduated from nursing school with?All of my friends have given me really nice gifts, like one of them gave us all personalized necklaces, and one gave us all personalized pens. I don’t want to copy, but I also want to show them how much they all mean to me! Please help!!

[display_name id=”1″]How about a monogrammed set of scrubs? They come in all designs and colors now, cartoons, abstracts, solid colors, and you can get them everywhere…online, discount stores, medical supply stores. They are also very easy to fit. So they are pretty easy to give as a gift. Then have them embroidered, for a lead on who does this, ask at the local sporting goods store where local ball teams have uniforms done. If the store handles it on their own, you may have to pay extra for the monogramming since you aren’t buying jerseys, etc. But I think they would probably do it or could refer you.You could get ONE embroidered top and two coordinating bottoms to get them started on their work wardrobe.

You could also just take them all out for dinner and drinks, you pay…before you all go your separate ways.
