Memory slips are aggravating, frustrating, and sometimes worrisome. When they happen more than they should, they can trigger fears of looming dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. But there are some treatable causes of forgetfulness. Here are six common ones.

John 8:3-5; 10-11
As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd. “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?" Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

While I'm sure that this woman was unwillingly forced to own up to her wrong, I respect her for standing to face the consequences.  She was caught in the act of adultery, meaning she was not alone, but the poor excuse of a man that she was caught in the act with was too much of a coward to face his wrong.  For some reason, "I'm sorry" are two of the hardest words to say together.  We all make mistakes but if we take courage and face them, we'll find that the outcome may be totally opposite from what we imagine.
Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing:  for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

 

You ever feel like when you've done your very best for someone else, nothing ever is good enough?  You go all out of your way sacrificing so much, shoving your comfort aside, putting your own happiness on the back burner, and making yourself second to those that you are trying to help or support and it all seems to go unnoticed and you're left feeling so unappreciated.  Yes, it hurts...it hurts a lot, but don't stop.  Don't let the pain cause you to compromise what you know is the right thing to do.  Keep moving on helping and serving and just know that someone sees, someone knows, and that same someone will make sure that you receive all of the appreciation due to you and then some. I promise.

The AMA Has Been Attacking Nurse Practitioners Relentlessly But now NP's are FIGHTING BACK!

By Sara Heath

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) has published an open letter to the American Medical Association (AMA), lambasting the group for its stance on nurse practitioner practice authority and how it can affect high-quality patient care access.

The letter, addressed to AMA President Susan R. Bailey, MD, and CEO and Executive Vice President James L. Madara, MDA, centered on two key arguments: nurse practitioners can effectively improve patient access to care, and nurse practitioners deliver high-quality care that yields high patient satisfaction.

New 'zombie drug' sweeping the nation, several states taking action

By:  CNN Newsource

 

"So it's known as the 'zombie drug.' It's also known as 'tranq.' It is a veterinary tranquilizer. So, if it's being cut with other drugs it's also a drug potentiator, so it increases the high of any other drug that it might be cut with," said Myrtle Beach opioid coordinator Michelle Smith.

Skin-rotting drug ‘tranq’ infiltrates big cities: ‘Zombifying bodies’

ZOMBIE DRUG 2.jpg
By Brook Kato
There’s a new drug in town — and it has deadly consequences.

Xylazine — otherwise known as “tranq,” “tranq dope” and “zombie drug” — is wreaking havoc in major cities across the country with its devastating effects: It can literally rot the user’s skin.

The substance, which seemed to first appear in Philadelphia before migrating west to San Francisco and Los Angeles, was used for cutting heroin, but, most recently, it has been discovered in fentanyl and other illicit drugs

'The beginning of another kind of pandemic': Burned-out nurses say staffing shortages are only getting worse.'
By:  Yelena Dzhanova 

New York nurses are heading back to the hospital after three days on strike, but nurses nationwide are still facing the combined challenge of burnout and staffing shortages. 

Last week, more than 7,000 nurses walked out of hospitals in New York over demands for better pay and safer staffing. The two hospitals involved in the strike — Montefiore Bronx and Mount Sinai Hospital — reached an agreement with the New York State Nurses Association on Thursday, with a plan to implement new staffing ratios immediately. 

But around the country, the same problems still persist — nurses are being asked to do more with less and it's putting patient safety at risk, nurses told Insider.

At the core of the nurses' demands in New York was the push to reach sustainable nurse-to-patient ratios, which help patients receive proper nursing care as they need it.
