relax.......things are going to look up and i'll tell ya how.
1. BREATHE! :chuckle (my old standby
2. prioritize. what is your goal? is it to "push aside" the family for a while and concentrate on your nursing goal? one must eventually realize that she can't give 100% to absolutely everything that comes your way in any given day. figure out what you want, what needs to be done FIRST, then set steps to accomplish those goals. talk to hubby about how you are feeling. tell him to pick up the slack and back off. if all of this is way too much for you to "give up" for a while, then perhaps backing off school and only going part-time would work better for you. may take longer but it's better than backing out altogether, imo.
i guess what i'm trying to say is hang in there. look over your study habits. ditch what you are doing now cause it's not working and focus on finding a way to study that works for you. just because 99% of the class learns from flash cards doesn't mean you will. i had to literally re-write all of my notes everytime just to make it all click. took hours!
and i know i'm fumbling this entire post so please take everything i say with a grain of salt. keep what you like and toss the rest.
best of luck to you. you'll do better next time.
