Ok. I am going to briefly share my story with you. I went to college in 2001 and didn't like the subject I was taking. Not only did I have a lot of C's the first semester, I also had four F's the following semester due to not withdrawing properly. When I decided to take my pre-reqs for nursing school, the academic advisor told me flat out to forget about it. He told me my past grades were too poor and I might as well go for medical assistant or surgical tech. I worked harder than ever to get almost all A's in my pre-req's and got accepted to nursing school. I not only graduated this May as one of the top of my class, I also won an award. I am now a registered nurse, and it feels so good to be able to say that, when others told me I would never be able to. If there is a will, there is a way, and the road may be more difficult for those of us who messed up in the past, but it is not impossible. I went through the depression that you are going through as well, and I decided to get up and not let it stop me. I went to school with two children, and remained low income so I could do it all for free. Find a way, believe in your self, work hard, and life will pave a path for you to your dreams. Good luck.
