    Hi tonya,

    I withdrew from my med surg class a few weeks ago because i was having panic attacks and failed 2 exams. I felt like i was heading for insanity due to alot of stress that i have no control of. Then i decide health is more important and withdrew before its too late. Afer de-stressing for 3 weeks, i started Psych and i feel totally in control of everything now. My first exam i got an A. I am more in control of my environment, no more crying and uncontrollable outburst. I am positive i am going to make it till the end.

    Sometimes, i feel sad or frustrated when i remember what happened to me that led me to my being behind for one semester, but then again, theres always a reason. GOd is building a strong character in me, and i just trust God that He has a bigger plan for my life.

    Now, i exercise three times a week (jogging for 20 minutes), read motivational books and see my therapist.

    I hope this helps. Good luck

    Sometimes the biggest mistake strong women make is being strong.
    You sound like a good, decent person. I expect you have friends who would be glad to help, if you'd let them. This is no time to be trying to do it all on your own. People don't know what you need, so tell them. Maybe it's as little as a weekly phone call to see how you're doing.
    Come by and vent here. You'll find support and compassion.
    Hugs and prayers.

    I know life can be very hard, especially for a single mom, and school too. Give yourself the credit you deserve. You have the drive to better your life for yourself and your daughter. I'm amazed how moms can actually attend college and take care of families also. My daughter is a single mom, and she does the best she can. Thats all we can do. Know your limitations. Good to hear you set up a Dr. appt. You know what you need to do. Take it a day at a time and keep us posted. Use your mom as a support person, because she must love you alot.

    I live in KC too. I really feel alone sometimes too. If you need someone to talk to, let me know. I don't know very many people around here. I'm all about getting into nursing school. I know what it's like to be depressed!
