My name is Gaelic it's pronounced KAY GAN but I've been called keegan all my life. I don't even correct people anymore.
My given name is Suzanne, and I get called Susan or Sue all the time... I get it.
Every time I get called Sue, I always respond with "Z". No offense to anyone named Sue, but that is NOT my name.

Hi Suzi. Most people have called me Jim for years. But a few of my relatives still call me Jimmy as when I was a kid. Seems a bit of a young name and not fitting for my 70 years :)
No way! Jimmy is a lifelong name! Nice to meet you!

Welcome Robin! Some folks may call you Stacy or Bob, but you'll always be Judy to us.
My wife and I feel your pain. My wife's name is Lynna. Pronounced Lynn-a. She's called Lynn or Linda more often than not. Our last name is Tollett. When people get it wrong, they get it horribly wrong! Can you guess how they pronounce it?

I guess we'll just have to come up with a quirky nickname for you. Something like Suzie, or OrchidMiss, or something creative like that. What do you think?

Not sure it's legal to spell Suzi without the "e". Just to be sure, It's not pronounced Suz-I is it? This is getting confusing.;Facepalm

Thanks for all you do. I know a number of nurses and the last two years has been a bear on them and their families.
Recently I suffered through something called CIDP and my family and my nurse were my rock. I will forever be grateful to her for helping me recover through two years of treatment.

I have many patients with CIDP. Do/did you get IVIG for it?
I used to infuse at a neurologist's office with Jefferson in Philly, I still see several of his patients.
I have seen some people make incredible recoveries from CIDP with IVIG
