My nerves are shot!

  1. I start school tomorrow! I didn't think I was this nervous about it, but I keep having to run to the bathroom. Just thinking about school reduces me to tears. Oh my gosh! What is wrong with me? I usually am a very intrepid person! I can stand up and speak in front of large crowds, and I usually look forward to meeting new people and making new friends. Right now, however, I'm a mess! I need to calm myself down! Help!

    Just relax! lol, I know, easier said than done. What is scheduled for tomorrow? Is it a clinical or theory or what? How about trying to concentrate on having fun with the kids, take a walk or ride a bike? Do you have a yoga tape? That helps me a lot. I hope you get some rest today!

    Lisa,
    I think you'll do great. I have to admit that I have cried twice already and I don't start school until Sept. 7th..... . I don't know why either....maybe it's just nerve and anxiety. But just try to relax, I"m sure everything is in order, eat a good breakfast and know that at the end of this you'll be a great nurse.

    Hugs,
    Fatima

    P.S. Don't forget to tell us how everything goes tomorrow :hatparty:

    You'll be fine. Try to relax and enjoy it. I do understand though...I was a nervous wreck as well and made many bathroom breaks. Nice, huh? Still do before big exams. :chuckle but what you're feeling is totally normal. It will all settle in quickly enough.

    Thank you everyone! I was fine! I had a wonderful first day! The first part of the day was more orientation, and then we jumped right into classes after lunch. I need to go study for tomorrow, but just wanted to thank you all for your encouraging words and say "YAY! I'm finally a student!" :chuckle

    Glad you made it through your first day! My first day is fast approaching, and I am so nervous I can't stand it....so I empathize. I think the waiting is prob worse than the actual thing will really be...lol (or at least I hope).

    I was thinking about you yesterday. I didn't really check the posts, so I had no idea you were having first day jitters. Glad to hear it went well. When you have time this weekend, let us know how it's going, the people, assignments, tests, etc. You know how we are...the ones who have to wait until August need something to hang on
