    THis kinda sounds like something a lot more serious was going with this nurse than just a stress reaction(ie CVA, med reaction etc) but yes there is stress in nursing. There is stress in life from raising a family to paying bills, to career choices to living in our modern world itself. The beauty of nursing is there many things you can do within the profession, some more stressful, some less. You just have to decide on how much stress you want in your life, learn ways to deal with it and de-stress yourself and nursing can work out for you. I have been an RN over 20 yrs all of it in hospitals and have done everything except dialysis and OR. Something gets too intense, move on(I look for something good or fun in everything I do, if that doesn't work than my cynical sarcastic takes over). Tried being a Nursing Supervisor which can be stressful(never wanted to take my clothes off in the bathroom though) in and of itself because I found it a no-win situation job, and found I am a RN(real nurse) and not adminstration's "boy". :wakeneo: flaerman
