I know I have said it before, but I have been reading and re-reading all the reply's to my "Somebody Please Help..." post, and I can't say Thank You enough. I have never felt such a surge of support. You should all be so proud of the people that you are. I am so excited about starting school. I go talk to an acedemic advisor in 2 weeks. She will tell me what classes I need to start taking. I am so excited, yet so nervous. It is hard going back to college, especially after 12 years, but some of the replys I read blew my mind. I can't believe how some of you went to work fulltime and had all these children (some with disabilities), etc,etc....I mean I CAN DO THIS. I know I can. I just need to be a little easier on myself...one day at a time.
Thanks also to this website I have discovered. What a GREAT service you provide!!! You deserve a pat on the back.
Thanks to everyone, and I will keep everyone posted.

I went back after realizing I just wasn't happy in the job I had. I had always wanted to go to nursing school, but never felt like I was smart enough. After talking to an academic advisor who told me that I might want to consider something else, my mind was made up for sure then(cause he really p#@@$d me off). 3 1/2 years later, I passed boards on the first try( and had to tell him) and haven't slowed down since.
It is truly the best and most rewarding (and frustrating) thing I have done since becoming a mother and now a grandmother.
