An old nurse wants to retire
by Antonia Staff
I have been a nurse all my working life. I am over retirement age and still work a few days a fortnight and want to stop because all the suffering I have seen has lodged in my body and as I get thin and healthy it all comes out in tears.
I suffer pathological tolerance and this affects my life; this is not the time to be kind. I find, as the more tolerant I am the more the young think I am a fool and walk all over me.
I had two car accidents last week - I pulled up to park and twice a driver did not see me and backed into my car. Is the universe trying to tell me something? Indeed.
Stop making yourself invisible and be who you really are inside.
Strong and wise and still healthy and attractive. Boomers we are still breaking the mould.
