My husband asked me not to blog about what happened. He is convinced that someone, somewhere may hold it against me. I agree with him to a certain extent. The watered down version is I gave a patient the wrong medication which caused them to go into a diabetic shock. She survived, but only because I did my best to cover it up. I should have gone to the doctor with my error, but I didn't. I was too busy covering my own ass.
There is more to the story, but I have to let that go.
I need to thank all of you who commented below. I needed to read every last one of those posts. Thank you all for being so gracious with your words. I need to especially thank one female blogger who reached out to me via email. Your kindness was not lost on me. Thank you for your understanding and forgiveness. You said all the things I needed to hear and I am grateful to have you as a friend.
You are all phenomenal people and I am thankful to have you all in my life.
I promise to go back to the princessy posts after this. I have learned a very hard lesson. I am forgiving myself and chalking it up as something that will only make me a better nurse and human being from this day forward.
Again, I thank all of you for being there. Truly. I love you all.
