    Joey, it's good to hear from you. As others have said, I think of you often and wonder how you guys are holding up. I think it's great that you are going to counselling. It can be so helpful in trying times. I also think that it's great that you are volunteering with Hospice. You are a strong lady. I will keep praying that God give you and JoEllen the support you need. You might feel lonely, but you're not alone. :icon_hug:

    Hi everybody. My interview went well today. Even if they don't hire me, the experience is good for me. Sometimes I have to hear me talk about what's good about me in order to remember that I do have a lot to offer. Boards on Tuesday. I say we go on a prayer and fasting vigil. I took a practice test last night. Got only 61%. It said I was "lacking essential nursing knowledge". That was painful. Not a confidence builder! Remember me Tuesday at 10am. I can not have come this far to fail my boards!

    (((((((joey))))))) you and your dd have been in my prayers, and will remain in my prayers in the weeks ahead. just remember this...god doesn't ask us to be strong, so you don't have to present a strong front for anyone. he is our strength when we are weak. let him continue as your strength, your help, your husband and father; and father to your dd as well. just let each day be a breath at a time, a task at a time, feel what you feel, cry when you feel like crying, and always know that we are here for you in whatever way we can be. i'm glad to hear you and your dd are in counseling to help you through the grieving and readjustment period since your dh's death. when you go to take the nclex, just let everything else go, relax as much as you can, and draw on what you know that you know. and if you have to repeat the exam........so what...so be it! you've dealt with so much of late, so don't beat yourself up over any regrouping that you need to do. :kiss :flowersfo :icon_hug:

    Joey, I pray in agreement with Cheer. I will have you in thought and prayer on Tues. Remember, God is your strength and He will never never leave nor forsake you. He'll be right beside you as you take the test. And we'll be here for you. Keep us posted, OK?
    Love ya!

    I know you're all going to tell me that everyone says the same thing, but...

    I don't see how there is any way on the face of this earth that I passed my boards. Completely not what I expected.

    We'll see...

    You know what? I truly hope you did, but if you didn't that would be totally understandable as your life has required every ounce of your mental energy. You can always take NCLEX again if needed. You may need to give your thought process a little bit of recovery time after the high stress levels. I really, really hope you passed, but if you didn't, i know you will the next time. Please, please give yourself a break.

    Wow! I am amazed at you. The fact you even had the strength to take the boards at all.
    I will be praying that you passed, but as the last poster said, don't despair! You can take them again!
