I am on anxiety and stress overload in this field. I really can't take it anymore. Over 6 years and I have recently gone nuts with it. I am in hospice and home health working 10 hour days, constantly responsibile for patients, constantly feeling like I have done something to harm them. Waking up in the middle of the night with some nagging feeling coming to me and keeping me up.
My temper is short with my 5 year old DD (I'm a divorced single parent and she is a beautiful but very demanding difficult child) I take my PRN Xanax almost daily now, which I just started to help me when i was going through my divorce over 4 years ago and to help me sleep when i was on nightshift.
I just don't think I can handle it anymore. I don't want to do it anymore, but am certainly in no position to change careers now.
Help, I'm losing my mind!
