well, let me see if i can condense this for you. i am now a rn intern, & i tutor to keep my scholarship. also, my migraines have gotten progressively worse. i have at least 2 per week, and chronic headaches in between. i am on topamax (100mg bid) and effexor xr (75mg bid). i have been to the emergency room 3 or 4 times since we last *talked* due to these darn things. however, i am not going to let them stop me from achieving my dream of becoming a nurse!
how are you doing? it seems we will both be graduating in december. that will be great!
what class(es) are you taking now? what class(es) do you have left?
wishing you the best!
hi.. i understand the migraine stuff... thank god, i only get one every couple of weeks... my doctor put me on inderal, cause my headaches kept my bp like 160/105 and sometimes higher... it has helped i am just a bad pill taker..
school has been going good until recently.. one of our classmates died last week, so we went to her funeral yesterday, very sudden death, still don't know why.. she was 31 and left behind a 3 and 2yr old... so that has made it difficult to concentrate on school...
i have already done clinicals on cardiac, med-surg, and orthopaedics.. we have oncology, dialysis, and some other med-surg floors left this semester.. then next semester we have peds, icu and psych, then it is over
i am still working as a pca on an orthopaedic floor.. i really enjoy it... i don't work very often.. because this is the hardest semester.. we have so many lil projects and stuff to do... i am working on one as we speak
hope the headaches get better.. even though they probably won't until december
