I'm sorry you are having such a rough time right now. It sounds like you are doing your best to work hard at something that can be quite scary and overwhelming at times. I think because OB is dealing with life/death situations (times 2) the seasoned nurses tend to be abrupt at times. They have so much responsibility on their shoulders making sure baby and mom stay safe.

I've been in your shoes, and when you say "village idiot" I know EXACTLY what that feels like. Sometimes it takes time to find your niche in nursing. There are so many different areas to try, so don't feel bad if OB is not for you. It's okay to try different things until you find the right specialty for you. Hang in there. You are not alone, and although it may not seem like it, we have ALL been there at one time or another! Take care. :)
