    Regret after starting ICU?

    Hi, there! Did any of you immediately regret getting into the ICU after you started working there? If so, did you stay or get out as fast as possible? I've only been on this unit for a couple months but I honestly don't know if I can handle it. The emotional and physical stress, the families, all the moving parts with meds/labs/time management/patient prioritization...it's just so much that I pretty much come home crying after every shift. And that's not good. I'm also not the type of person that thrives off of being in an intense, high-stress environment. It makes me feel panicky and claustrophobic. Thank you for any advice!
