I just finished my third day of clinicals (first rotation) & negative emotions just hit me like a wave today. I've been busting my butt this first semester of classes & am sitting at a 92% in the class. That's all fine & great but I feel like I've lost the rest of my life. I no longer spend time with family, friends, exercising, relaxation, etc. I always feel like there's more studying I need to do! How do I accomplish feeling some balance in my life?!
On another note, I'm just generally not feeling confident in clinicals. I know my skills but I for some reason freeze up even on SIMPLE things! I know deep down this isn't an issue of my competency, it's my ability to feel confident & comfortable in what I'm doing.
Please help with some words of encouragement!
