Feeling so Bummed - page 4

I am feeling so bummed. I just don't know what to do. I just started nursing school about three weeks ago. The great thing about it is that I was able to get in with one of my friends that I did... Read More

    Hey love!

    im currently in my second semester of nursing school. I know a lot of people are telling you to suck it up and forget about it. However, they often forget just how demanding and stressful nursing school is. There have been many a time when I've been so overwhelmed and stressed, that I thought I wouldn't be able to do it. Having a close friend is crucial for most people to make it through. It's much easier to get through this when you have someone you can lean on when times get tough. And I promise you, they will get tough! Guess what, these people know exactly what you're going through and need the support as well! If I didn't have my group of friends I would have already dropped out! As far as this one girl your speaking of... To put it bluntly, she's a bit**. Let her do her thing, and show her you don't need her. You sound like a sweet girl, and don't need this drama to deter from becoming a nurse. I do agree with the other nurses here in that you need to make new friends! Start communicating with people in your clinical group and set up a study date with them! Don't give up on this though, especially over something like this! You will never live it down and and will regret it for the rest of your life! Get out there and start making new friends! And tell miss popular to shove it! Hope everything works out for you!

    I really do appreciate everyone's advice, and I know you all are just trying to help me see the big picture. It hasn't been easy at all, and it will most likely continue to be this way. I have come to terms that if we don't end up being friends in the end of all this, I am okay with it. I just need to learn to cope with not being "invited" to study groups, or celebrations after an exam especially when there's public post in my face all over social media. I guess that's what hurts the most, and I should maybe stay away from social media, so I don't hear or see these things. But like one of the posts earlier stated for me to put all my focus into studying and in doing the best I can. I have aced both my exams and have done exceptionally well, that I'm proud. I have family and other friends who love me and will go to the moon and back for me. I don't need this, all I need is to get through this part my life. Maybe there's something there that I need to learn from all of this. I'm not sure what it is yet. I had a really bad day when I posted this, I have since then moved on from it. Although, there are still painful moments, I will not let it hinder my studying and will not deter me from finishing what I set out to do. I will continue to come back to read all the feed backs that I have been given when I am feeling really down. Thank you all for picking me back up.

    I like to feel included too. I am wondering though, if they are public events on FB, are you "allowed" to go to them without an express invitation? Can you choose to attend? Or would that increase the awkwardness for you?

    I'm glad you're staying in your program. It sounds like you worked hard to get there!
