When I was first out of high school I started at a CC (not for nursing, just general) and dropped those classes. I started back a few years later after I had my first son and I was much more dedicated.
This past fall semester was really hard on me. I have two little boys (4 and 1) and was taking an accelerated bio and lab, chem and lab, and psych 101. The psych and accelerated bio and lab were online. I felt like I had 7 classes instead of 5. I was studying all the time and my house was a mess and used so much help from my husband and mom. I couldn't have done it w/o them. To make a long story short, that week of finals I was a mess. I was crying, freaking out, snapping at everyone around me...my husband gave me the best advice. He said to not worry if I didn't pass any of the classes. He didn't care if I flunked, I would just have to try again, but if I quit, then yes he would be disapointed. Never quit, try your best and if you don't do well, evaluate how you can do better next time. Even if you have to take a class over again just think how much easier it will be the second time around when things are more familiar?
In the end I ended up getting all A's and one B! It really made me realize that nothing worthwile comes easy. It felt so good to get through all that struggling, I even was going to drop that accelerated bio towards the end there but my hubby talked me out of it thank gawd. I would say it made those grades feel even better! If you don't do well one semester, you still have the chance to do great the next semester, and it will feel really great!
