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.

After ONE shift you do not enjoy nursing?  NO ONE enjoys their job after one shift.  One shift just reminds you how much you don't know, and all of those strangers -- how are you going to know who you can look to when you have questions?  

If you're questioning whether it's time for therapy, it is definitely time for therapy.  Please do yourself a favor and make an appointment as soon as possible.

I came to the conclusion you could probably benefit from therapy before you said anything about your first day in nursing. Please take RV’s advice. It can’t hurt.
