    Humor & Alcohol is how I cope!

    Luckily I have friends that appreciate my nurse/off beat/crude/coping mechanism humor. All my friends are either in the medical field (RN, LPN, CNA, EMT, SLP, APRN, CNM, nursing students) or roller derby girls… Also, bourbon. Bourbon helps me deal. I get off work, am home after my son is off to school. Have me a drink or two then go to sleep. I keep my flask full and in my bed waiting!
