A story I want to share

I had a patient the other day that came in who has a history of seizures. Her daughter for whatever reason took her medication that can help prevent seizures from her. It also happens to be an anti-anxiety medication.

She came in and looked like a total mess . When I asked what was going on she said that she had drank all morning and her daughter took her Xanax from her. She said that she just found out that her daughter was HIV-positive and two and half months pregnant. She explained how this guy her daughter had been dating for a while got her pregnant, and when he found out about her status he admitted knowing since 2013. When I hear this for some strange reason I never get upset I just put on my positive little hat and start with my little speech - of course all the other nurses around me think I'm ridiculous.
