  1. That is what I chose to do when, for a short period, I had a bullying manager. At one point I think I was on the receiving end of her frustrations st not achieving her own strategic objectives which she had given to me in raw form when I was doing a management course. She later vented her frustrations also in writing. Long story really but I had no one to discuss my worries with at the time apart from my brother who is a lawyer. My brother guided my written response. For the first time in my 20 year career at the time My confidence in my whole professional practice hit an all time low.

  2. Thanks, long story really. Did move clinics due to other factors also. This was in 1996 and in 1998 a major life event occurred which perhaps I may blog about in the future. I retired in July 2010 aged 55 years, an age that nurses are able.

  3. Yes Emile but everyone’s retirement ‘story’ is different. Just thought of a Shakespeare quote ‘some are born great and some have greatness thrust upon them’. The words greatness in this quote could be replaced by retirement perhaps. Strange how Shakespeare learned in school came to mind in this instance as a lot of the time I found the plays we studied not very interesting.
