Welcome!  I'm Patience and I feel like I've lived at least four lives.  I spent my young adulthood having babies--four in six years--and was at home full time with them.  I went back to school and got a second degree in nursing, worked two years as an acute care orthopedic and trauma nurse at a level 1 trauma center, became utterly burned out, and am now a clinical systems analyst/programmer.   We live in Virginia, but Buffalo, New York will always be my true home.  I hope you enjoy this site.  Thanks for visiting.
