Update on me/prayers needed

  1. Hi,

    I posted a little while ago because I was feeling really depressed and didn't know what to do. Many of you offered such good advice and suggested I seek counseling. Well, I had a couple of sessions--that was all I could afford, but unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse and I just felt like I was fed up with life period. Not that I was ever suicidal or anything, but I basically didn't care what happened to me at that point. Anyway, to make a long story short, I ended up quiting my job (which I loathed) and finally got around to applying to 2 nursing schools.

    I don't have another job yet, but I was getting physically sick from being there. I have a couple of interviews already so I am not too worried. I am a spiritual person so I just figure I am where God wants me to be right now. The positive thing right now is that I started making "A's" in Anatomy & Physiology. Trying to stay positive!!

    I will continue to send prayers and encouragement your way. Sounds like the positive thing in your life is guiding you. Nursing may be your calling. Sounds like quitting your job was what you needed to do. Keep trying to stay positive and good luck finding a new job that you'll like better.

    Hang tough, Tonya! You are exactly where you need to be right now. It's during the slump times that we are actually being pruned for the next big thing in our life. Stay encouraged and keep the faith! Praying for ya! :kiss

    Tonya, Just do whatever makes you feel happy and contented. Everything will fall into place as you work toward your goal. My prayers go out to you as you make your decisions. You have lots of folks in this forum who are behind you all the way.

    It sounds like you are doing exactly what yuo need to! Nursing is SO challenging! It is nto all good and can be very demanding of who we really are. It is good that you are staring with a clean slate.

    You are on the right path and will find what workds for you. We all need that time to get away and regroup. Lucky you that you identified it before you sunk too deep you did not want to return to nursing are were negative.

    The reasons you mentioned were some of those reason I chose to do Agency Nursing. You will find your nitch!

    It is good to hear of your A's in Anatomy! Have fun with your class and finding your nitch!

    Hi everybody, esp Tonya. Its raining hard here in Metro Manila, started three days ago and may be here for two days more. So many people are being evacuated to schools and churches in various areas due to floods, and some main streets are no longer passable to all kinds of vehicles. My mother always tells us that should we feel depressed, we should think of other people who are in more unfortunate circumstances. We pray for them instead bec. at that instant we should feel how lucky we are and how abundant are the blessings of the Lord for us. Pls. help me pray for the countless mothers and children shivering in wet clothes and waiting 4 good people 2 send them food 2night in d evacuation centers bec their homes r submerged by d flood. God Bless u all.....Mabuhay frm Metro Manila.
