About Piggie’s Place


So, why am I here? That’s a big question! My blog has a bit of an identity crisis. I’m trying to do several things here and some times that makes things seem a little jumbled, but that’s life.

This is a place for me to post updates in my life. It’s an easy way to keep in touch with a lot of people while only having to write it once. Yeah, I’m kinda lazy like that. For those of you who don’t know me in real life, it’s a place for you to get to know me better. A little peek into the strange mind of a pig.

I am a writer and want to keep my words flowing. For that reason, I respond to a lot of prompts posted by others. I post them here so that others can read them. Feed back is welcome. I post both poetry and prose, but I largely lean towards prose. I’m working on a novel and have been for what seems like forever. I write short stories and share those on occasion as well. I am not going to be sharing my creative writing on this site at this time.

I share medical knowledge. I’m a nurse and have been since 2004. Prior to that I was a CNA and an EMT. Been doing the health care thing for about 1/2 my life now. Currently I am working as a psych nurse. One of the biggest challenges in this field is that so many people do not understand psych and because of that there is a huge stigma. I want to break that down. Just know that anything I post in the medical section of this blog is my personal understanding and is intended as a place to start. As always, if you have medical concerns, go see your doctor!

This is a place for me to rant and ramble. I’m a chatty and tangential kinda pig and need a place to try to round up my thoughts. There will be posts that wander and those that stomp their feet. There will be opinions and angry tantrums. There will be intellectual analysis and silly randomness.

Live. Love. Laugh. Play.
All we have is today.

Thank you for visiting my site! I hope that you enjoy what you find here.

  1. THat was a WHOLE lot of something in which I could understand… I mean, when I read the first paragraph, I was surprised. I AM like that, but I did not realise it. I tried to describe it, but I had difficulty pointing my finger to it. The 2nd para made me stop, for while not all in which you wrote are the same for me, MOST are. TOO many.

    Well it sounds like you have your hands full. We have all been thinking about you and worried. Hopefully things will settle down for you soon and you will be feeling better. It is scary and frustrating when things happen that you have no control over, but you seem to have a great attitude Jacq, and we all support you. If you need anything please let me know.

        I will let everyone know and offer them the site as well. I know how you feel. I went out for surgery and then ended up with pneumonia and ended up out for 6 weeks. Not fun and OMG was I bored by the end of it. Of course that was after I started feeling better. LOL

      • Seems like the idea of feeling better is a dim hope 😛 Thanks for passing on the info. I know people keep asking, which I find very heartening, but its hard to keep up with everyone >.<

  4. Hey Piglet, I have been wondering how you have been. I talked to monkey on the cell, she updated me on things. I worry about you. Been thinking of you and hope everything is working out. Keep me posted, I hope all is well. I will keep checking in on this site. Let me know if there is anything i can do. Talk to you later. Peanut.

    • Thanks for thinking about me. Its been nice to know that people are thinking about me while I have been out. I miss all you guys! Things have been ok. I am doing better with the recent med changes. I don’t think there is anything for anyone to do at this point; unless you know someone with a money tree 😉 Just playing the waiting game for the test results. Hopefully they will come back looking good and I will be back to work and harassing everyone soon!

  5. naturally like your web-site but you need to take a look at
    the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very
    bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll surely come back
    again.

    • I’m glad that you like the site and plan to continue to visit. As far as the spelling goes, I’m terrible at spelling and for most of my casual posts I don’t care enough to spell check. The writing prompts are often packed full of miss spelled words, typos and broken grammar since they are exercises and drafts rather then finished, polished pieces. Posts that are marked as essays, poetry or stories are finished works and I would love feed back on those pieces if you see any mistakes or have any suggestions! Thanks again for reading!

    • The subscription button is currently on the right hand side of the page. It’s an orange rectangle and says “I’m Listening.” Just give that a click and wordpress should start sending you emails.

  13. Hi, glad to have found your blog. I have mental illness and am dedicated to helping end the stigma. I’m looking forward to reading your posts from a different perspective. As someone who lives with mental illness, I’ve often wondered what all the dr.’s, therapists, nurses, etc. are experiencing while working with us. Thank you, looking forward to reading more.

    • Welcome to my little corner of the web! Please, comment and give input on anything I post. I do share feed back that I get here with those that I work with. That is one of the many cool parts of being part of the social network here on wordpress. My perspective on mental illness is from that of a nurse, one who has mental illness (OCD and ADHD) and who has family with mental illness. I try to bring all those experiences here. Along with all the other random dancing squirrels in my head 😉
