Good Evening Everyone!
I was just wondering if anyone here has doubts about whether or not they can do this. I'm sure I can...but I guess that doesn't stop my subconscious from continually telling me that I can't. I keep on getting these horrible anxiety dreams that I'm in clinical (mind you I'm still just working on my pre-req's) and the pt, the pt's family, and my instructor are all yelling at me and I'm doing everyting wrong! I feel like I'm in gym class again and being the last one picked for kick ball for Criminey's Sake! Ugh!
I don't suppose the one comment one of my friends said when I told her I wanted to be a nurse helped...She looked at me and asked..."don't you have to be coordinated to be a nurse?" OK folks...I'm a bit of a klutz but sheesh...I'm not exactly Mr. Bean either! Please refrain from commenting on my screen name...that's not how I got my nickname!
Anyway...I never really took her comment to heart...I just chalked it up to her being an idiot...She's always jamming both feet in and chewing!
We don't really talk much anymore anyway...a totally different subject.
I guess it all just goes back to my long history of being a lazy student who never succeeded in school. Mind you, it's not because I was stupid...just lazy. Nursing is so outside my "comfort zone" that it's really not even funny! I mean, I like people and I can talk to people but self-confidence has never really been a strongpoint of mine! Sigh....anyone else out there with these feelings? I'm not looking for cheerleaders or anything...I will become a Nurse and logically speaking, I know I can...I'm just curious if there are any other people out there that have these irrational, rediculous fears. Thanks for letting me vent!
