NewFNP had a whirlwind of a weekend.

Oh, how newFNP fucked herself by not immediately saying "no way, Jose" to her lorazepam seeking patient. Blog commentors, newFNP hears you and acknowledges just how correct you all were. Just when newFNP begins to think that she is no longer so new, something like this happens and newFNP realizes that new has a shitload to do with context.

A huge factor in newFNP's deciding to become an NP was her desire to help people. This is not unique, of course, but sometimes newFNP gets so bogged down in the B.S. of day-to-day clinical life that she sometimes loses sight of this.

NewFNP is aware that it is wholly within the boundaries of acceptability to discuss one's sex life with one's provider. In newFNP's clinic, however, this discussion generally consists of women telling newFNP that they are tired of having sex with their partners and are stupefied at the amount of sex a man wants. In a 25-patient day, it is exceedingly difficult to suss out if that is because intercourse is physically painful or if it is because their partners are content to sit around and watch TV while the women clean the house & bathe the kids, etc. or if it is because their partners are just sort of remedial when it comes to doing it.
