Is anyone here in thier late 40's or 50's and back in school for the second time?? I ask because I was in school in my late 20's-early 30's and hubby decided he didn't want me working so I had to leave school. (4.o gpa and a great student. had nothing to do with my grades or performance) I was going to go back to school in my mid 30's but I had another baby. (that was a BIG reaosn I had to leave before cuz I and hubby wanted me to stay home with babies) So...now I have a 21 month old. I dream, and think about going back to school all the tim. I get jealous of people who are in school. I was a member of this board back in nursing school but took a break ..and came back...and took a break...and came back... because I love it here and I feel at home on the nursing boards. I sometimes get a terrible feeling in my stomach when on here cuz I know I will not be able to go back to school until my 21 month od is nearly an adult.
I am torn. I want so badly to be a nurse, to go back to school. ..but, I also don't want ot miss anything with my baby and I want to be here for him and the older 2 for everything. So...
That brings me to my question.. i want to knwo if anyone here started school and for one reason or another had to leave and then went back when in the 40's or 50's and how was it?? Was it harder or easier? Was it tough being around a lot of younger people, kids?
