I dont get chance to get on here as often as i like as kids and work, but just needed to vent off about my MS Nurse. I am a nurse and love my job and if i make a patient smile or help them it makes me feel proud and that i have completed my task effectively. Was just wondering tho if anybody else has an unhelpful, lack of knowledge and unsupportive nurse as we do. Everytime you call her to help you get “i dont know” or “maybe” “what do you think”. All i want sometimes is to be able to ring her up and ask her some advice yet all i get is rubbish. I have even phoned up my neurologists secretary and asked him to call me as my nurse is useless. I have told him this, and obviously know he cant comment but he knows what she is like! I know i am not the only person who feels like this here as when i go to my local meeting they all keep saying they dont like her and i should have her job lol. I was also so excited yesterday about the news of the pill and when i spoke to my nurse she turned round to me and said " i dont watch the news"…err i thought nurses were supposed to be up to date on research etc, especially in their field of medicine!!!
Her response was also well it probably wont happen, so talk about put a downer on a person who actually cried whn i read it, as it seemed to be a glimmer of hope for me as i hate injecting myself! and when i saw my neurologist monday this week, he said that if the pill ever came out then i would go it. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr sorry to moan but just needed to see if its just our nurse that is like this.
