    We had to keep a journal for pshyc also. I did not keep a journal some parts of school are to stressful to want to have written down. All thought it would make an interesting novel if you had it published!!

    I do keep a nursing journal of intersting patients and my reactions, fears etc. Mostly so I can go back and read about it and I have the time now that I am off for the semester working as a nurse.

    Sounds like a good idea thought will probably help you from bottling up emotions. Thing might seem better on paper! Good luck with school everyone

    Shonda, hi!

    Does writing about the day you left your husband gives you a sense of closure? I felt closure when I put out all the things that my estrange didn't have time to get out of the house.

    All the best to you too!

    LPN...in answer to your question...YES!!! I did feel closure when I wrote about leaving my ex. I still write about things that occur between us..such as him asking me out to dinner, or if we have a disagreemen about the kids. But the times and amount that I write are getting, fewer, farther between, and shorter. I'm finally realizing that he is not worth the time, effort, or brain power to continue writing about. I have more IMPORTANT things to deal with now...school, studying, work, household chores, and last, but certainly NOT least...my kids!!!

    Good luck this semester!!!

    Here is a giggle for everyone. My instructor suggested when we had spare time(what is that?) .that we might like to read books by nursing theorists. I do love Florence Nightengale but man unless I stay awake 24 hours,that's not going to happen. As far as the journal goes: I think it would be a great idea but I doubt I will ever have the time for it .
