I have been in nursing for 9 years, the first 8 or so years in LTC and skilled now dialysis. I also have dx of depression and ADD for which I take Lexapro and Vyvanse.
How do those of you with these issues cope? I find myself having a harder and harder time managing while at work.
I have no problem with the work itself, that is not an issue. My problems are with the people I work with.
I am an energetic person by nature and believe in team work, however I was told today that I am "too helpful" and that I am driving the other staff nuts. Stuck between a rock and a hard place.... because if I wasn't helpful I would be told I wasnt a team player.
I also tend to personalize others moods/attitudes and make it my fault, even when I know that it isn't.
Maybe this is more of a vent anything, but if anyone would happen to have words of wisdom I would appreciate it.
