I am really having a hard time now that I have graduated from my program. I feel quite down about life in general. I graduated with honors, got my dream job, and saved up money from my financial aid so I can go on a wonderful vacation after I take the NCLEX on the 23rd - but I am still feeling sad.
I just suddenly feel so lonely and isolated, even when I am with people I care about. It is the kind of feeling where a room could be filled with the 100 people I love the most, and it would make me a little happier, but I would still feel alone. I hate this feeling because I start to look at social media and compare myself to others (which is maladaptive, I know). I think that the sudden shift in my life from college, where I was surrounded by friends, to now seeing my friends off for break has been hard. I do have a history of depression, but I am taking my antidepressant and exercising 5 times weekly. This always works, so I am surprised I am not feeling great.
I am thinking about taking my dad to Finding Dory tomorrow for Father's Day, I think the laughs will be good for both of us!
I am writing this because I would love to hear from people who are feeling like me and what is working from them.
Thank you and have a great Father's Day!
