After a difficulty shift, what is the one thing you do to relax?

Medical cannabis, but don't tell anybody. Even in states where it's legal, nursing is considered a safety sensitive position so it's not allowed, although I can go home and down three Vicodin or get so drunk I can't walk and nobody will say anything as long as I'm sober when I go to work.....

Massive quantities of ETOH of your choice. Honestly this might be poor advice.

I’m not going to sugar coat this… I’ve pulled over one mile away from the hospital and screamed, sobbed, and just let it all out after a difficult shift. 1. Never ever hold it in once you are away from that patient/family 2. Embrace your hurt your frustration your anger… embrace it, it’s what makes us good humans 3. Find what works for you (hot bath, gym, read, meditate, music) find what works and use it!
