Grandma Susie, ADN, RN 5 Posts Specializes in Geriatrics. Has 17 years experience. Aug 2, 2021 I have bipolar 2 and anxiety. Have been a nurse since 2006 and have had 3 jobs now, first job for 2 1/2 years at a LTC facility. The next for 11 years! It was at a plasma donation center. Good job until Covid hit. They were very good to me when I had a breakdown and went on a 2 month leave of absence (unlike the LTC facility). Now I do home health care, which I am enjoying. I recently had a set back with my mental health but am starting to do a little better. I have good support from my family and spouse. I just have to remember to be open and talk to them about how I'm feeling. I do lots of crafts in my spare time, which helps me. I also like to organize when I'm feeling down. Been doing a lot of that lately! Anyway, thanks for reading. Hope you're doing better.
