    Time for a therapist?

    Hello, apologies if this thread is not where it’s supposed to be. Robin Williams once said, “I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy. Because they know what it's like to feel absolutely worthless and they don't want anybody else to feel like that.” Few days ago, I just realized this quote really applies to me. At work or hanging out with friends I am always happy, making them laugh. My coworkers always tell me I am always positive, an individual who has the right attitude but deep inside I am just miserable. From education to work and relationship has been a *** show. I feel like whatever I do, I cannot win in life. I have not discussed things with my parents or anyone else. I just don’t know. Sometimes I just lie just to satisfy them because people just keep asking me questions about this and that non stop. I graduated, searched for jobs so few months, lost hope. Finally last month a LTC hired me. At first I was so happy but after my first shift I do not enjoy nursing. Maybe because I am new? I don’t feel confident/comfortable to new environment. I keep getting text messages to work for shifts because I am a casual but I am scared. I don’t know what to do.

    New grad, LTC facility

    Hello, So I accepted casual position for a long term care facility as new grad...kinda..(i did not practise for a year). I had two days, two evenings and 1 night for orientation. I had my first shift last week and let me tell you, it was not pleasant. Resident had a fall, residents shouting at me because they were not getting the routine care that were given by regular parttime/full time nurses, psws asking for help, maybe 5 residents had their medication late because I had to give to 25 pts. All my placements were in hospitals and I did not realize how stressful it is to work in nursing home/ ltc. I don’t know what to do! I am stressed out, I am telling myself, is it worth it? Did I make a mistake in choosing nursing? The only reason I chose this position was because I was not getting any jobs. I like providing care to pts, it is very rewarding. I keep getting text msgs to pick up shifts but I am so scared I dont even respond to it even though I am avaliable to work. Any advice? :’(

    Already feel like giving up

    Hi there, i had multiple interviews so far and no job offers as new grad. At this moment, i just feel like giving up. After interviews I go through in my head on re-answering the questions again and i wish i had answered better. I am an internal applicant in a hospital but the more i do interviews the more embarassed i get because I cannot land the position. In addition to seeing same HR person. Anyone feeling this way? I guess nursing is not meant to be
