Bad nurse. Bad bad nurse.

Eldest daughter is kind of sickish...I am a crappy nurse when they are like that, impatient and not as sympathetic as I should be. When they are really ill I'm not so awful, when they're only sort of sick... not so good. They should just get better darn it.

She just doesn't seem very sick, and I get frustrated at what she is missing. Not very rational.

I think it is a combination of concern and dismay. Why it makes me irritable though?


Eldest is unfortunately missing a field trip today, and if she doesn't get better, another one tomorrow.

Crap.

There is a weird continuum of sympathy for the sick, isn't there?

Stubbed toe? Get over it. Cough? Here's a Kleenex. Vomit? Here's a bucket and a head stroke. Cancer? I'm there around the clock.
