    I'm sorry if I came off short. I'm just done with failing. Done with trying my best and stilling making mistakes. Done with always being the disappointment in my family. I just want to be successful and a good nurse. I tried to get mental help and no one seems to be able to help me. I'm just scared and depressed. Please forgive me.
    If you're feeling alone and needing someone to talk to, then you need to find some resource in your community where you can talk with someone face to face. An internet forum is a fun hobby and can provide a lively exchange of ideas. It can even give you some virtual pats on the back. But we are clearly not adequate for what you need.

    People here are willing to give you a few pearls of wisdom but we are not therapists and do not constitute a support system. You need to find someone near you who can provide the help you need. Since you are short on funds, start with your county public health department to given you some referrals. Check out the YMCA, Salvation Army and other organizations that may have resources for you.

    Good luck.

    Nooooo. You need to talk to people face to face! A forum isn't going to give you what you need but a support group might.

    Support group. Like one for people with anxiety.

    Hi Newbie. I really do feel for you. Reading through your posts there is a recurrent theme of very low self esteem along with anxiety and depression. You have mentioned that you had been getting help with your issues. Perhaps you just need to take a break from nursing for a while. I responded to another post a few days back and suggested that you should try something different for your next nursing job. Some have also suggested home care, caring for one patient. Is this something that would interest you and do you think you could manage it? True, you would be caring for only one patient but a lot of times these people will have complex conditions that will require you to really focus on your nursing skills. I am sorry that you are being judged here, but unfortunately that's what happens on a public forum where others can only read your words and go from there. I hope you can get the support you truly need in person where no judgment will be cast.

    I feel like a jerk and just don't know what to do. Who knows if home health will work. Before I was a nurse, I was fired from every job. I've been on bad luck all my life. I don't expect people to understand.

    You wrote "social" group. You need a structured support group so you can talk about your issues in a healthy way with others who will be able to understand you and give you what you need. And again with the snark? Unbelievable.

    A social group and a support group are polar opposites and since you started asking for help from an internet forum (a social group) in the first place no, it really wasn't clear if you understood what I meant. I'm beginning to see why you're having problems and it starts with you. This behavior is why you don't have any friends (your words). I gave you well-meant, concerned advice and you responded by being a snot. Keep it up and you will soon find that nobody will want to help you here or anywhere else. FTR, I don't plan on going anywhere.

    Nah, you have more of a chance than I do. I got fired my first job after a year, I got fired of a job after A WEEK and currently I am holding a job longer than I have and I love it (2 years and possibly longer.) So if I can find a job after getting fired after a week, I'm pretty sure you are hireable.
