The point of me telling my story is to say why I am at the point I am at. It's some of my background information to say how I am at this point now. I did not include the points where I do take responsibility for not addressing my needs earlier on in the semester, etc. ; or how I did realize accelerated was not for me (HENCE decelerating), during that time I was passing my all of my courses... yes, even with ADD.
I accelerated because my grades allowed me to be eligible for the program and also for financial reasons. The whole ATTENTION thing, yeah, that's treated with medication. For me, it was not really an issue when on medication. Adderall helped me focus... but I experience high pulse rates, shakiness, anxiety attacks, and depression. I did not connect that at the time as to a factor contributing to a reason as why I was not performing adequately exam wise as I had in the past-- MY BAD --- don't assume things, brush off that big ego of yours.
An "excuse" is an explanation... and my reasons for not performing academically well were as stated. Never did I say none of this was my fault or blame it on others.
"It's also called LIFE. Get used to it. Things won't go your way all the time."---
Really? I had no idea! If you took this as me complaining... that was not my intent. Never did I blame this on my school, my teachers, my clinicals... I think very highly of my school. I'm asking about options because I want to be a nurse. Don't stray from the point because you feel the need to express judgments. But thank you for your response.
