I am glad to have found this thread. I suffer from depression and anxiety. I am also afraid of people sometimes - social anxiety. I have this idea that all people are going to be mean to me. I had an abusive childhood which unfortunately remains with me to this day. I am working hard to rise above it. I often wonder how functional I will be in nursing school and as a nurse. I start in January 2012. I am not going to beat myself up if it ends up being too stressful for me. Life is too short. I've done that too many times.

bye for now.

Nursing school is sure a good practice field, if you can get through nursing school you can get thru most anything lol... you learn how to put your game face in (and to do open mouthed silent screams when you go to the restroom lol)

I have not kept you guys up to date on ME! duh. I have been struggling w/ depression myself and having med changes many times (causing hypomania which causes med changes. etc.) so tired of it. my mom even said I should go into the hosp, be taken off everything and start over. I even recently consented to a sleeping pill which is something I said I would NEVER do (used benadryl prn prior to this) really sick of this and meds and being ill and not being able to go after what I want ...

BUT on a positive note am working w/ a job coach on trying to get a pt job writing for community newspaper(s) which would be a dream come true! so for those of you who pray, pray for me to be in balance and in touch w/ what God would have me to do

Thanks for listening and please keep posting here! xo

I was just wondering if there are any other nurses who struggle with mental illness.

If there is anyone still on this thread who continues to struggle with these issues, there is a relatively new thread here called
