1 More Thing

So a post from almost exactly a year ago is generating a lot of conversation, and not in a great way. It’s too bad, because the post was written for this site. It was written because humor is critical to sustaining ourselves in the face of tragedy day in and day out. And I gave permission for others to use it in a very limited way. Certainly not in the way it was used, sadly. I encourage anyone who has questions about the content on this site to visit the About page and the FAQs and review the very personal nature of FHO. And I thank those of you who know me well, and know what a struggle this weekend has been, for the kind words of friendship and support.

I don’t know what all the fuss is about – I love the truisms. I think they’re great and very accurate. People need to take a chill pill. Has our society gotten so far politically correct that you can’t say how your life in reality is without being jerked around for your realism????

Thanks, Pam. Reader comments, especially long-time readers such as yourself, really mean a lot.

Your site has given me valuable information and resources that help me care for my patients. I can count on you to provide content that is clear, concise and relevant to my practice. As for your lighter posts… they always seem to come at a time when I am needing a pick me up. Humor is a tool many of us use to cope- to see that life is not all about tragedy. I, for one, hope that whatever is happening to question your posts, does not discourage you from posting what you think will touch us, educate us, and lighten our hearts. Continue to be you… we need you.

My world would be so empty without your thoughtful, witty words…I enjoyed reading the truisms, it was time I spent laughing and connecting with my fabulous friends in a light fun way…….jacqui

THANK YOU for every single posting on this page..YOU and all the content has been a life saver for my forensic nursing venture. Don’t stop doing what you do and continue to be the person that you are and that nursing needs you to be for our profession! (I don’t have a clue what has happened but do know that there will always be someone that doesn’t like what you are doing no matter what it is….)

I have not been able to get to the computer the last couple of days, so was not able to put in my two cents…which are to totally support your efforts here on FHO to provide current information for practice and pause to view ourselves with humor (at times), just when we need it! Thank you for the time and effort you put forward in this site, believe me, I know what effort that takes!

I have been out of touch for the last week so I’m also a bit tardy with my comments. Jen, I was with you when FHO was conceived and have been educated, uplifted, humbled, touched, validated as a forensic nurse and motivated by the quality content, personalisms and insights you dole out daily thru this site.It is thru your efforts that clinicians acroos the globe have a repository of current information, research and education, that many of us iwth lesser tech skills could achieve. Thank you.

Hi Jen,
I am not sure what happened or who was offended but I remember that post. I am not a Forensic Nurse. I am a Sergeant with the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit and an Associate Member of IAFN. I routinely forward your posts to the men and women who work with and for me. They are inside and outside my organization and belong to several disciplines. We have all benefited from your posts and I appreciate the time you take to sift through multiple sources so I don’t have to. It is much easier to forward things. Particularly at a time when in my corner of the world our homicide rate is up almost 30% and our officer involved shootings are 7 times what they were last year. That is on top of the increase in IPV, AHT, child neglect, sexual assault, elder abuse and neglect, etc.
Humor is the one thread that connects those of us who do this work and gets us through the tough times. You have the support and respect of the men and women I work with.
