Well, i have a similar well not so similar situation, but i didnt know where to post it and i guess in this thread it would be good.
Well, i am kinda new to this site and i want to become an LPN. Now i dont know what tthis would be considered as, b/c b4 it was a major problem for me in deciding whether or not i wanted to go into the nursing field. Too make a long story short, i had a stroke when i was 4
paralyzing me on my right side, now i can walk talk i drive a car with no special equipment, i have a full time job, the only thing that resulted from me having the stroke is my right hand isnt fully functional, it stays closed all the time. i am 22 years old and i regret not going to nursing school straight out of high school, but i have realized that the only thing holding me back is myself!:angel2: But what i do want to know from other nurses out there is there anyone or yourself included that has a physical disability and that strived to become a nurse? what were the obstacles (if any) that you has to over come? was there ever a point when u just wanted to throw i the towel?
Thanks to everyone who takes time to read this and/or reply . . .:smilecoffeecup:
