In thriteen years of nursing, mostly ICU, I had my first huffer today...

I renamed her Gold Dust Woman as she had shiny, metalic, gold paint all over her hands, and her brain is fried..at fourty eight~

She is starting to come around and her husband warned me that if/when she wakes up she will be impossible to deal with as she missed her methadone clinic appointment this morning...

huh?

Wow...

Just had to share...when one thinks one's life is bad...

geeeezzzzz

I could never do what you do and keep my sanity, hippichick.

Thanks for the love and healing you give to others everyday.

I know what methadone is but what is a "huffer" ? A person who inhaled glue back when it was popular?

Same thing, only they have graduated to things with high solvent contents, like spray paint...
