Today marks a day that I never believed would arrive. We found out today that we have officially passed our Graduate Certificate in ED Nursing. The challenges have been many and there were times where I really didn’t believe that I would get through this year, but thankfully I had these legends with me the entire way.
It also goes without saying that we are so grateful for the support (and endless sugar highs) provided by our mentors @mellie_white_82 & @bechuff! Thank you for letting us “digress” at every opportunity and for being our pillars of strength during 2018!
Massive shout out also to our ED family who have supported us throughout this year and answered our many questions no matter how silly they may have sounded! We couldn’t have gotten through without you ALL! .

One of the many advantages of studying your MBA online is that all the learning resources are digital! From eTextbooks and subject videos to interactive quizzes and audio files – you can use your time effectively when studying an online degree, leaving more time for life!
I was listening to some PD on my way to work this morning (like always) and today’s 15 minute commute had a theme that really struck me:
J U S T S H O W U P -
that’s half the battle 🥊 -
Did you know that by just showing up, you can rise above half the population in any circumstance? I’m def not telling you it’s EASY to do.
Hell, I had a hard time showing up today.
#teachertired is legit.
But I did.
I eat lunch at my desk 4/5 days a week and today tried a new place! It’s the little things in life that bring joy, like when you realize you work only two blocks from a very yummy place...with very beautiful taco salads 😍 🌮 🥗 @tacodumbo
You know I’m Bridesmaids when Kristen Wiig screams “Carol! Get your shit together, Carol!” I feel that 😂 and that’s why this book by Sarah Knight FLEW off the shelf into my face.
I haven’t ready many personal development books - a few “how to perfect your craft” books but nothing on how to improve MYSELF. So far, this book is speaking to my slightly-confused-about-life-22 year old soul. Highly recommend to anyone who feels like they need to get a grip on this rollercoaster. No shame, friends.

A little laughter and friends can brighten a bad day.
I was not having the best of mornings. To be honest, the past week has been very draining. I have been very stressed and frustrated with myself.
This morning, my friend shared a funny email with everyone at work and we were all laughing 😂. Afterwards, I realized my mood was better and I felt more energized.
The people we surround ourselves with have a big impact on us. Choose to spend time with people who encourage you and have a positive attitude. Likewise, try to be that person to other people✨

Lewisite is an organoarsenic compound that was developed in the USA toward the end of World War One.
It is a colourless, odourless compound that acts as a respiratory irritant and vesicant (meaning it causes blistering of the skin and mucus membranes upon contact. Although it is commonly inhaled as a vapour, it may also be ingested in liquid form.
As the name suggests, organoarsenic compounds are composed of an arsenic group (in this case, arsenic trichloride) bonded to a carbon (in this case the hydrocarbon, acetylene). Lewisite works by irreversibly inhibiting pyruvate dehydrogenase, the enzyme responsible for converting pyruvate into acetyl Co-A before it enters the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. This inhibition prevents aerobic metabolism from continuing, therefore shutting down production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy ‘currency’ of cellular processes. Whilst this affects most cell types, it rapidly upsets those of the nervous system, since these rely on glucose (and therefore pyruvate) as their only source of fuel.
Initial symptoms of lewisite toxicity include an itchy, burning rash, coughing, vomiting and sometimes respiratory failure. Within 12 hours, fluid-filled blisters appear on the skin and remain painful for several days. Exposure may also cause issues with blood pressure (due to physical damage to blood vessels), leading to kidney damage. Long-term, chronic exposure can also cause arsenic toxicity due to its bioaccumulation.
Treatment involves administration of dimercaprol, an antidote to arsenic (and ergo lewisite) poisoning, which I covered in a previous #toxicologytuesday post on arsenic. Additionally, assisted ventilation and fluid replacement are generally required.
Manufacture, use and stockpiling of lewisite is banned under the Chemical Weapons Convention.
I’m really excited to be moving in a new direction with my blog. I realize I’ve been on hiatus the past few weeks - namely because of working and exhaustion. So obviously the moment I get out of dodge for some R&R, I shift my focus to Fleur de Lillie. I’ve had so many friends recently reach out with support and love for my blogging endeavors and it honestly means the world. So thank you for being here and reading the things I have to say.
