Back To School Frenzy And Nurse Practitioners

The back to school frenzy is getting to me. And I don’t even have kids in school. I still found myself over in the sale section going through the school supplies. And most online stores have banners and links on the front page to back to school stuff, lots of different stuff, for all ages. From kindergarten to grad school.

If you are still needing things for your school kids or if you are like me and can’t resist browsing the items. Target is having a sale:

My hubby is not attending this semester. That did not stop me from browsing the items. I actually bought some stuff. Some of it is actually useful….like the paper. You can use that even if you are not in school. The crayons I admit won’t get used for a while. But what they hey…you never know when someone with a kid might stop by. Got to keep them occupied!

In other news I went to the clinic this morning.  I saw the Nurse Practitioner. Not because I wasn’t willing to see the Doctor…it’s just that she was available sooner than he was…but I do like this Nurse. She is a no-nonsense sort of lady who seems to be as good or better than the Doctor. She is also a bit cheaper. That can make a big difference if you are short on money.

It seems I have an ear infection and a sinus infection. She also took my blood pressure and it was high for the first time ever. I know being overweight isn’t good and getting older doesn’t help…but I didn’t expect that. She said it might be a fluke just because I’m sick and wants me to check my blood pressure once a day for two weeks and then come see her again.

So I’m not feeling well. I should be better in a few days but in the meantime I’m gonna take a few naps. I’ll just have to post in between naps!

Don’t forget we have an event coming up in just a few days! Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss this one!


    1. No they are not. I have been taking lots of naps. I’m feeling better but still tired and not wanting to do much. Thank you very much for the prayers. And great suggestion on the crayons! I could use them laying in bed even…fun!

    1. Me too on the blood pressure…I took it yesterday and it was still high. So we will see. I hope it goes back to normal as I recover. Thanks for commenting!

  1. Hope your feeling better soon! On a personal note, as a nurse glad you decided to try out the nurse practioner. NPs have advanced training and degrees and have usually have more time to listen to the patient. Because they started as nurses, they have a different perspective on wellness and patient care. Get well soon!

  2. Yes I liked her and she did seem to know as much or maybe even more than the doctor. She didn’t seem to be trying to rush me out of the office either. I liked that! And the meds she prescribed seem to be doing the trick.

    Followed you on twitter and facebook. Couldn’t find a GFC.

    Thanks for the follow and the comment!

  3. As a retired nurse and consultant to the website I can tell you that nurses do NOT get the respect they deserve. Oftentimes nurses are doing most of the grunt work and are more in tuned with patients than the doctors!
