Nursing Dx:

Caregiver role strain related to multiple(3) caregiving responsibilities, high nursing school workload, and limited personal support system as evidenced by: irritability, anger, feelings of inadequacy, feelings of being overwhelmed, fatigue, lethargy, extreme anxiety, alternating bouts of insommnia and hypersomnia, inability to concentrate, forgetfullness, emotional lability, and overeating.

Wow! nice job on the care plan Missb! Specially the Martini. But I have decided to DC those and most other alcohol for now. Snickers seem like a good alternative.

And, yes, Jodi, I so need an enforcer...

And isn't implementation always the trick, svn? Sigh...

Spent the day in the ED again with my husband today so I am a wee bit behind on implementation.

Interventions:
1. hot bubble bath Rationale: Calgon just might take you away.

2. Take 1-2 glasses of wine after work or PRN.
Rationale: ETOH in small quantities can be beneficial to your CV and CNS systems. Or at least you think it is.

3. The Comedy Channel and/or funny movies at least 1 hr each afternoon for 1 week.
Rationale: nothing better for your troubles than laughter.

Ha ha!

Way to use that "critical thinking!" I willing to bet I could find some evidence based practice to prove the effectiveness of the martini and the margarita.

Hang in there everyone!

And thanks for the much needed laugh!

I always joked that I'm not even done school, and I'm already a burnt out nurse! :)

Love the care plans!

I hate nursing care plans.

Maybe that's why I'm in ER.

We cut to the chase: You need a Snickers bar, one TID prn need for self-preservation.

Personally, I prefer Green Apple Martinis, q 8 hours prn.

And there you have it! LOL
