Thanks everyone for your posts. I really appreciate it.
The problem I have with my husband is when I first signed up for nursing, he was supportive (at least he said he was), but because of the A&P and the fact that I did not take the clinical portion of the problem, I was not learning what I needed to in the two nursing courses I had so I dropped them. I told him now was not the time and maybe I would go back later. Well he just assumes that I've completely decided to pursue something totally different.
He says that I change my mind all the time and do not stick to anything. He is right to a point, I do have alot of trouble with decisions and have always been this way all my life and I do quit easily on some things. I tried to explain the reason I quit the nursing course is because I did not want to take the chance of failing. It's always better to drop. He doesn't understand this because things come very easy for him. He breezed through school.
Anyway, he is a good husband overall and tries to stand by me most of the time. I think he doesn't like to have to worry about taking care of the kids mostly himself after working all day. When he went to school we didn't have kids until he was almost finished and then we just had one. I hate to say it, but sometimes men don't want to be the main caretaker.
I'm still not sure what I will do with the course, I have a week to decide. Maybe he will come around and not give me such a hard time over it. Maybe I will take the math class instead for now and see what happens with the shadowing I plan to do.
Thanks for reading and being so very supportive. I know many of you have been in my shoes and being that nursing school
is so very difficult overall, it is a big step especially if there is not much support at home.
