"If you are serious about change you must be willing to endure a lot of discomfort. While this is no doubt true, I would take things one or maybe two steps further and say, 'Disruptive change will only happen when you become uncomfortable with being comfortable!'”
He's speaking from inside the health care community, talking about making changes from within. The same may also be true for patients working from the outside. But not always. In the case we've described, neither we nor our activist poster had to go through discomfort to get the attention of this hospital and this blog removed.
Dr. Gibbons also wrote:
"Whether the goal is personal weight loss, professional achievement, disparities elimination, patient access to personal health data, societal health improvement, or global peace, resist the logical, evidence based tendency to be satisfied with “change,” and release yourself to achieve what others think impossible by first becoming uncomfortable with being comfortable."
We urge our readers to get involved. Be proactive. Don't be afraid to make civil complaints and provide solutions. And if you are ignored, don't give up. Resend those letters with copies to the media, if necessary. As Dr. Gibbons suggests, don't be comfortable with an unfair status quo. Be uncomfortable with it. And do something.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND.......THE PENIS!
I have to talk about this! I know the men followers will probably not enjoy this, but it needs to be discussed. I have seen so much PENIS in the last 8 years! I did not realize in nursing school the variety of PENIS that I would be exposed to, I mean in the text books......a penis is a penis, but in the real word the PENIS is always an interesting surprise!
I have seen big penis, small penis, hidden by huge bush penis, "that's it?" penis, peek-a-boo penis, smelly penis, dirty penis,oozing penis, uncircumcised penis, young penis, old penis, swollen penis, uncomfortably hard every time I walk in the room penis, paralyzed penis, white penis, Jewish penis, Asian penis (not good), I can't find your penis because you are tooo fat penis, famous penis, HOLY SHIT that's a large penis, penis, and the SURPRISE, I am a white man from the waist up and a black man from the waste down penis!
It is true what they say about the black man. I have seen A LOT of black man penis and it is NEVER small. From the time these penis's enter the world they are HUGE. It is UNBELIEVABLE! The little black babies have penis's that actually flop up over their belly buttons. When I worked in pediatrics, I was shocked at the head start that these little black babies get....they are ahead of the game from day 1!
I once had to take care of a famous Miami coach. In between juggling his girlfriend and wife, we would chat here and there. He asked me to get him some pain medicine and when I did and came back to the room, I opened the door and I saw him standing up with the urinal in between his knees. I quickly thought to myself, "that's weird....why is he holding the urinal in between his knees?" Then I realized, "HOLY SHIT THAT IS HIS PENIS ALL THE WAY DOWN THERE" It is TRULY AMAZING! I have never seen anything like it and instead of quickly closing the curtain or running out of the room, I stood there like a little girl seeing a penis for the first time. I was truly shocked and I eventually stuttered my way out of the room, dropping the medicine, staring at the penis and walking out of the room backwards like an AWKWARD mess!
I guess in nursing school they just figure that a penis is a penis! They do not warn us of all of the interesting penis that we will encounter in our careers for fear that we will giggle our way through nursing school. Sometimes we find a nice surprise, sometimes it is small, sometimes it is smelly and sometimes it is truly freakishly large......they all work the same way but at the end of the day.....NURSE'S LOVE A GREAT PENIS STORY!

Ladies......your junk is disgusting! For god sakes.....TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
I am up in everyone's business ALL of the time and I have to tell you, it is AWFUL! I have actually offered to PAY someone to put a Foley catheter in a women for me! I HATE IT! Where is the freaking hole man?.....no wonder men are so confused! Don't get me wrong, I KNOW anatomy! I know where things are SUPPOSED to be.......but the older and fatter you get the more FREAKING CONFUSING it is! There is NO text book urethra for a women! "Why isn't any urine coming out?", we wonder......."oh, i know......BECAUSE YOUR IN THE FING VAGINA!"
It is the most disgusting.........I don't mean to offend anyone, but the thinner you are the easier it is, not much, but a bit easier. We do not have stirrups when we(nurses) do this.......we HAVE to be able to hold the legs back, maintain sterile technique and insert the Foley catheter........if you are not able to help us at all, it makes it very difficult.......smelly.......and sweaty......!
Like I said, I would rather pay someone.......does that mean I am prostituting my services?
JUST DO US ALL A FAVOR AND TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
Wasn't it the grandmothers of the world that said, "make sure you have clean underwear on when you leave the house because you never know!"
