From your friendly maintainer

Hey guys/gals. I've been on sebatical for about 2 years, so I haven't kept up with my own community. I'm glad to see many folks enjoying and using this community.

Last year, I switched my focus from doing two years of psych, to working in a large New Orleans area ICU.

Last night, I had to teach a completely "with the program" male patient how to use a urinal. I had to DEMONSTRATE it on myself. He didn't understand what to do with the opening.

I asked if he had ever been camping and peed in a cup. He said no.

He was in for an intraventricular hemmorhage. I just blamed it for him not knowing how to work a urinal.

Good lord.
