    Yeah, I feel that way too. I've been cruising the boards looking for fellow stressed out nurses. I worked 6 months in the ER preceptoring, and got out because it was too high-stress and too fast paced for a new grad like me. Then I found a new job in Cardiac Care 12 hour nights, and still feel that history could repeat itself... that maybe I'm not cut out for nursing and that my first job didn't work out because of me. It's rough... this career. I'm sure we'll be fine in the long run, we'll look back and have sage advice and laugh about this time in our lives. But right now I'd like to know my job, have an exercise routine and diet figured out, be debt free... for now though I'll just venting with ya'll.

    Hi everyone just checking in... here's a hug for today for whoever needs one...:icon_hug:

    I keep telling myself to just keep putting one foot in front of the other. And an occasional glass of wine or beer combined with some laughter and friends helps as well too.. :biere:

    It's just never ending, and I'm wondering when I find my little groove again. Everything just feels "off" in my life right now, can't seem to get into an exercise routine, can't seem to get work down pat, sigh, sorry, in any case just venting here and again asking for hugs and sending them to anyone else feeling the same thing....
    {{{{{{{{{{{{{{Healer}}}}}}}}}}} Sorry it is tough right now! I think being in that "in-between" and unsettled stage is very stressful - ie finding a job, where, and will you like it, and will you be up for it, etc... try just doing "today" - you may be expecting too much of yourself right now!

    Sure you need to work on getting a job - but try not to spread yourself too thin. As to the exercise - see Healthier Living Support Part III - at

    ...one nurse said i was "making it up" that i'm getting more difficult assignments because i'm new and another told me, "you're at the bottom of the food chain" when i started to vent about how i'd been running my butt off all night and the other nurses were sitting watching tv and reading magazines.
    I would slap those nurses silly I tell YOU! If they lose a good nurse they will just shrug? No, they will complain about staffing! Idiots...

    Yeah, I know, an attack on invisible nurses, hope it's ok, hee hee...

    {{{{{{{{{Hugs to everyone here!}}}}}}}}}}}} It sounds very difficult!

    Can I have one too? Been crying for the last two days straight. Got fired from my first nursing job after just a couple months, due to extremely unfair situation. I didn't do anything wrong! And now I may lose the chance to adopt my foster son because I don't have a job. Loooong story, but yeah, hugs would definitely be appreciated.
    {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{jade-athyst}}}}}}}}}}}}} So sorry -
