Hi everyone!I am a behavioral health tech and am applying to nursing schools. It has been a real pleasure reading your posts. I have learned so much from them.When a patient shares her struggles and is crying, all I want to do is to cry with her. Of course I know I shouldn't and I try my best not to. The time I tear up the most at work is during group therapy sessions. The patients are all sharing their hard times and everyone is sniffling. So far I have been doing math problems in my head to distract me. I also find yawning helps. What ways have you found helpful to stop your tears while working?My family has always told me I am too sensitive for the psych field and too sensitive to be a nurse, but I can't think of another other job I'd want than a psych nurse. I know I can prove them wrong and any tips or tricks from you all would greatly help!Thank you for reading this. Take good care!
