I know we all have stress, some people more than others. Some stress is brought on by the person and some people I guess are just put in stressful situations. Well, this week has been pretty stressful. I know being a nurse how bad stress is for a person. Some stress is good-but I think how much I am having right now...NOT so good!
I will spare everyone all the details of my week, and just hit highlights. If you get nothing out of this post, please just keep me in your prayers.
Well, I was scheduled to work 4 hour night shifts this week (you can count how many hours that is) as well as having a big Pathophysiology test on Wednesday. Because of the amount of time I worked (luckily I ended up working only 3, 12 hour shifts), I was not able to study very much, not much at all. Now, I did this a lot in undergrad and tests usually came out ok-I obviously did pretty well in undergrad and I think I am a pretty good nurse. However, I failed this test with a capital F! I know I am not a stupid person-but it has really made me think..."What was I thinking going back to get a master's?" I feel pretty confident in the direction God is leading both Joel and I. I even know He is in control. I really feel like this is what I am supposed to do-but it makes me feel pretty stupid!!! I don't like that feeling. OK, so that was alot of details. The other thing that happened was at work, let's just say they changed a policy where instead of having a transportation person take people to the "place where people go when they die in a hospital" WE now take them there. I will definetly spare you those details and just tell you that it was the most traumatic thing I have ever done in my life!
I apologize for this blog. I do not want to be depressing or sad, and I do not want to be offensive in how I word things. Again, I just ask for your prayers as well as ANY advice you have to combat stress.
