New nurse on night shift, first pregnancy and type 1 diabetic

  1. I am a new nurse that is still on orientation on a fast paced obs. unit. I am on night shift which is tough because I am not a nights person. I'm actually not a big fan of the unit I'm on either but I had to start somewhere (I dread going to work every time and lose sleep before going). I have severe anxiety about going to work each time which is horrible. I am also in my first pregnancy and am a type 1 diabetic. I am having a really difficult time balancing work, pregnancy, and my health with T1D. Is there anyone that has been in my shoes or anything similar? I know stress can cause so much harm and that is not what I want. I don't know if everything I'm going through is worth it right now. Any advice would be great...
