Normal? What's Normal

CUSSING, CAFFEINE & COVID19
Being a nurse always comes with stories. So does motherhood. Both are hard and beautiful. Add in grad school and a pandemic, and I needed an outlet. I mean, I could've just taken up drinking, but writing doesn't give you a hangover. So here is my attempt to stay sane in a very noisy world right now. Welcome.
Jack, in my head I am considering you already dead. . .
Everybody Just Breathe is a harrowing, generous, and often irreverent memoir chronicling the longest shift of one nurse’s life. It is a testament to patients, and a love letter of camaraderie to fellow COVID nurses. It is also an uproarious depiction of motherhood locked down.
This startling debut reads like dispatches from the front; Amanda Peterson is a crucial new voice with a timely plea to a nation fatigued by pandemic: Everybody Just Breathe.

THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK
Hi. I am Amanda. I am a loud, crazy wife and mother of two
I have been a nurse since 2006 and an ICU nurse since 2008. In March of 2020, I volunteered to work in COVID ICU; every patient, every day, with the same diagnosis. And life officially got weird.
Eighteen months later, my fellow coworkers and I are buckling up for another round with this virus as the numbers in Minnesota continue to climb. So here I am, still writing.
In this blog space, I write it all down. Because otherwise I will lose my shit.
