I have longed to be a nurse all my life. I became a CNA when I was 32 years old, but I wanted so much to do more and allowed to have more duties. When I was 50 years old, I attended LPN school for two months until I failed the dosage calculations. Then I became very depressed and my self-esteem hit bottom. So, I turned in another direction and graduated with an Associates degree in Computer Networking Management. What was I thinking? I guess not to clearly because now I am enrolled in a BS degree program in Computer Information Systems. Guess what I am struggling to pass? Algebra 1!!!! I am now 54 years old and I feel like my clock is ticking. What do I want to be when I grow up? Oh, I forgot to mention that I have arthritis in my knees and back and fibromyalgia. What a mess! I know where my heart is leading me and I want to care for others, even more so than when I was 16 years old. This is how I feel!
