my family were unsupportive from the start...my parents always dreamed of me becoming a poetry writer. That is a skill i have but i didnt want that as a career. i really enjoyed caring for the sick and elderly. since my last post i have continued my work as a cna but i am still looking forward to becoming a nurse. My family have always told me that "I don't have the"nack" to become a nurse or CNA." That is what is truly bothering me to this day. But, recently I was at work today and almost went to tears because a resident said "I appreciate you as My NA and you have the heart and drive for it." That made me feel a lot better because i dont hear positive words often. " I have enrolled in Community college for basic courses in math and still working as CNA. I am doing okay with myself so far, i will keep everyone posted!
