Re: what are you reading?

re: "I have known a couple of nurses that were holy terrors, for that
matter."---ha! ha! That would be me!!!! Course, being a psych. nurse,
it's kind of expected...gotta be tough, many times in order to keep from

patient that I'm coming to work is all that is necessary to settle
someone down...Thanks for the laugh, Auralie!
