I am proof positive. I'm a software developer, and I like to think a good one. I'm now a "lead" developer, meaning I lead other developers and quality assurance people on projects. (Not amanager, but still a leadership role.) I'm terrible at it (and I hate it most days). I just want towrite code.
Nurses are underpaid. We are not all sexy. We work outside of hospitals too. We are oftenhourly wage workers who don’t get paid if we don’t work, and insurance companies covereverything medical(doctors, spcialists, therapists , procedures, equipment) but not nursinghours.

Therapy takes time; maybe weeks, maybe months. Don't expect me to help you "fix" in onesession what took years to destroy.
sex problems are rarely about sex.
It has nothing to do with life experience, It's their education.
Though I am somebody's assistant, I am not everybody's assistant.
"Oh, so you're not important." No, the assistant is the glue that holds thedepartment/office/company together.

Just because someone works in IT does not automatically mean they can diagnose orfix thatproblem with your home PC/broadband or creat a website for you anymore than a Pharmacistcan sew your arm back on.

Editing is more about fixing arguments and story sturcture than fixing sentences. Often when Itell someone I'm a book editor, I get some form of: "That's so awesome! I love finding typos!"
