Some may find offense in a nurse addicted to opiates but I find it refreshing that it's finally being brought to light. Healthcare workers, be it Dr, pharmacist, nurse, EMT's, have the highest rate of abuse due to stress and access. Human and vulnerable yet tough, this a heart wrenching,ironic, real sometimes painful view on medicine today.

Got hooked on a weekend of free Showtime. I had to keep watching it. It seemed as if they were playing a parallel version of my life. I tried to download free seasons but I failed.....THEN I got so lucky and found them at my library.

A softer look for Edie Falco in this season, very nice. Her new cop boyfriend Frank reminds me of a young Dinero and he's adorable. An amazing season and you will be very be dissapointed. Zoe is a riot and I'll just say... you go girl in this season. ; )
