Since we are in a pandemic, I recognize it may be hard to live right now. For me, social media (SM) allows me to interact on a wider scale and I’m thankful for that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m aware of the dangers of social media (catfishing, fraud, etc.) so I am hesitant about being on the net. My partner and loved ones have told me many times to be careful, I am grateful for the concern and I am being careful. It could be said I hide behind my blog but I prefer to liken myself to Ms. Whistledown (?) From Bridgerton. Do I think too highly of myself? I may not be creating a gossip newspaper but publishing content I care about.
Like mentioned previously, my stroke was a sad moment in my life because I had a Master’s degree in nursing but I couldn’t really do what I wanted to do. This is why this blog is so important to me. I feel that even though I am unable to go out and take care of patients at the bedside, I can still stimulate conversations about issues that patients and caregivers may be susceptible to.
