Hi there! I’m a Registered Nurse, 28 years practicing. This blog is about, Teenage Depression and Secrets. I live in Greater Atlanta area some say the Countryside but I say Peaceful!
Nurse Blogger writes about stressors that affect adolescents which cause Mental Health Issues. Stress in a child world affects their daily living. To the extent that they need an inpatient admission placement. Placed In a crisis center for various disorders. But this blog will focus on Teenage Depression, Secrets. How to stay positive while struggling with despair. Talk about Myths. The truth being depressed does not mean you are weak.
What I like about my Job
Seeing the teens happy and able to function. In a home like setting. Most go to foster homes. Sad but a lot returned due to mental illness and in-ability of caregiver to cope. The Support staffs make a difference. It’s always rewarding to see my children smile. That tell me they are getting better one day at a time.
It’s a team effort. I am loyal to the kids. The team of professionals working within a culture of openness and sharing there are lots of mechanisms. For care and support. It is emotionally challenging and you have to be robust and self-aware. But this is what I do. This blog will touch on some of my life. Related to my work with teens. The issues faced by teens are real. And you can survive them. I hope I bring a smile to my readers’ face. If you have been hurt. Felt there was no one to turn to. Hope you find solace through reading this blog. Along with the courage to seek help.
