Hi,I'm on my 2nd year of ADN program. I'm doing well actually. I actually enjoyed the first year, everything seemed so new and fresh. But as I progress into the 2nd year. I feel that I'm not progressing the way I had wanted. I'm back to my usual quiet self who wants to blend in the background. I feel like nursing is awakening the stressors I buried from childhood and growing up. I give myself **** for the littlest things and I yell at myself everyday like I have tourettes. I want to cry but I just end up getting mad at myself. My major problem I guess is I hate interacting with my classmates (except for a few). But I dont mind being in the hospital with patients. I just dont feel like im good enough compared to my classmates. I feel like im seen as weak because I dont speak much or participate in class. I honestly am just not a very verbal person. I have anxiety talking in a class setting. I'm not looking for sympathy. I guess I just want to know how you guys coped with low self esteem and stress.
