Nurses, be careful who you marry

"Make me a promise!" one of the emotional nurses implored of me one evening.  "Never marry a man who is not a professional!"  She sobbed.

"Okay," I agreed.  "Why?"

"Because he will send you to an early grave, making you work double shifts because you make more than he does, while he sits at home doing nothing.  Don't do it!"  She cried some more.

This may be some of the best advice I've heard in this psych hospital.


  1. Totally agree. Men put on a good front and love you and don't even know you. I totally agree with this! He will not be able to take care of you and especially if they don't take care of themselves!

  2. I could never work all day, exhausting myself, while my partner sat around, watching television. I have things I want to do, too.
