Getting a bad attitude about next semester


Ugh, I don't even want to think about it. The first semester of this 2 semester program was challenging enough with my teenage daughter doing a lot of driving her siblings around. Now she's leaving, and underneath being sad that she's all grown up and leaving me, I'm wondering how I'm going to manage without her! She covered a lot of gaps for my husband and me. Then there's also the problem that I'm not feeling all that motivated by the idea of being a nurse right now. I know I'll be fine at it once I start, I just remember how tired I was all the time and how my kids felt like they never saw me between school and work. Another semester of that does not look appealing. And then there's the work itself. This program is called "fast track" and so much information gets thrown at you that retaining anything feels like a miracle. I know I'm's just where I'm at right now. I have a month to get out of my funk.

It's ok to whine; this is the place to do it. That's a lot of stress and emotions floating around.
