One of the lesser-known saints

We have a new psychologist at work. As we were introducing ourselves, he asked what I did as a nurse for the mental health department.

"I arrange for medications to be delivered to our office for the clients who pick them up here. I also telephone doctor's offices to coordinate care of complex patients. There's about fifteen people who come by every week for their injections--"

Comprehension dawned in his eyes. "So you're the Risperdal lady!"
Sure, Mac. Just call me "Our Lady of Antipsychotics." You thought nuns whacking you with rulers was bad--I'll do them one better!

  1. Probably shouldn't wear that T at work... The patients might think you are a fellow patient, not staff... :)
