About the Blogger
For a long time, I’ve had a private blog that I’ve shared with a few close friends. More and more, I feel like I need to have a place to speak openly and honestly and publicly.
I am a feminist who is still learning about feminism in depth, practicing intersectional feminism. I am genderfluid and bisexual. Pronouns they and them will work best for me. I will make mistakes on this journey, but I will also grow.
I’m a registered nurse working in an inner city teaching hospital. I’m studying for my BSN and plan to pursue a Nurse Practitioner’s license. I am an active member of the American Nurse’s Association. I cannot give medical advice. I will not violate HIPAA. My patients deserve their right to privacy. So you may hear things nurses have said, questions that have been asked, doctors have done, but you will not hear any identifying information about my patients. Confidentiality is one of the basic tenants of the nurse-patient relationship, and should any patient find this blog and recognize me, I want them to know they will not read their story on this blog.
I am a burn survivor.
I love my cats. Grimalkin is the cat you see on this page.
I don’t back down from a fight. Unless I’m wrong. I might not realize how wrong I am right away. When I do, I apologize.
I write poetry and short stories. Some may show up here.
I TYPE IN CAPS AND SWEAR A LOT.
If there’s anything you’d like to see on this blog, please let me know. Because while this blog will deal with my history and how it affects me, it’s really all about you.
