I’ve been neglecting Nurse Bitterpill lately. Not exactly on purpose. I’ve just been so busy with everything going on in my world that I just haven’t gotten around to updating her blog.
The other night at work, I had one of those Nurse Bitterpill conversations with a patient that drove home the need to continue putting my energy into the Alzheimer’s blog. It brings me joy to give a moment or two of humor to the lives of those who care for or have family members suffering from Alzheimer’s or any other form of dementia. My passion is to heal souls, not just bodies.
So before I go off to upload the tons of quotes I have collected lately, I will put this conversation from the other night here on my personal blog. Because I know you will enjoy it as well. It will be put on Nurse Bitterpill’s blog too.
Patient: “I had a terrible dream. I didn’t know anybody. Is there something wrong with me?”
Nurse: “I’m here to help you remember.”
Patient: “That’s good. I don’t like this dream.”
Nurse: “I’m your nurse dreamcatcher. I will take those bad dreams away and throw them into the sun.”
Patient: “This dream is getting better already.”
