My husbands job has required him to learn 2 more jobs and he is working 6-7 12 hour days this has been going on for months.If you read some of the old messages many have made it through with illnesses, death etc. This long long post is to let you know YOU can do it if you WANT it bad enough and WORK hard hard hard...... So good luck and let us know what you decide

Just perservere.....you can do it....I know you can!!!

    Julia, If I can do it then ANYONE can do it if they believe. I am a 23 year old single mom of a VERY active 5 and a half year old sometimes I question if she has ADHD or not. I am graduating this Sunday with my BSN. A&P was honestly my hardest class (besides Math). The nursing classes came much easier for me because I am graduating with class honors.

    I know of this girl who is also graduating who is a single mom of a 3 year old and and a 5 year old and she has at the top of the class with one of the highest GPA's a 3.9 GPA. She plans to become a CRNA.

    If you really want this you can do this. Keep telling yourself that.
