I apologize. I shouldn't have responded the way I did. I'm new to this and stressed out and I shouldn't have taken it out on you. I'm also very sarcastic and tend to respond that way, not realizing I sound mean. I dont realize the way it looks when I post from my phone, so I will try to indent where needed. I keep a journal, so maybe the online way isn't the best route for me. I just like insight from other people in this profession as it's difficult to talk to my husband about it because he has no clue about the healthcare world. Totally understand I need a new job as well but I live in a very rural area and there isn't a huge variety of options when it comes to nursing. Just needed to relieve some stress! hherrn
Paragraphs and spacing are *critical* whether it is a message board, an email, whatever. I also re-read before I submit and try to pare it down as much as possible; I tend to be a bit logorrheic if I am not careful haha. Less is more when it comes to written communication, almost always.
However, Hherrn was out of line; her comment was rude and unhelpful.
I gave you the benefit of the doubt with your post, assuming you were stressed and just needed to get it all out. I have been there myself, and my heart goes out to you
It's easy to say "just quit," but we all know it is MUCH more complicated than that IRL.
I will also give Hherrn the benefit of the doubt; maybe she is tired coming off a long shift and didn't think about how her post might hurt your feelings. I think sometimes we forget that the person we are responding to is an actual human with actual feelings. Its easy to be rude online, unfortunately.
Don't be afraid to continue to post! Most everyone here is supportive and kind, and will do their best to read your wall of text haha.

"Unsure if this is right for me..."
Why are you unsure?
I have some concrete advice.
1- You don't like your job. Find a new job.
2- Use paragraphs.
