Still struggling

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Still struggling with the ups and downs of depression. I have been taking my medications. I start orientation tomorrow at 1 of my PRN jobs. I am still waiting on calls from others. Even though I still apply online at others. The most important this for me to remember is to keep coming back here every day and checking and try to stay eating well. Nothing worth having comes over night. I studied music in my youth, I stopped about 20 years ago. I played clarinet and piano and I was pretty good. Lets just say I was professional for a while. But it took 20 years and 3 degrees toget that good. Unfortunately, I did not have the extreme talent or resources for a life in music and switched over to being a nurse. I have always had depression and anxiety but they did not do any thing about it then. I just turned 53yrs and my priority is to lose weight first and formost and get a job situation that I can manage without getting burned out that is why I am looking for per diem jobs. In nursing, full time jobs will kill you. Many of the nurses that i have worked with want to get out of nursing. Well, thanks for listening to my rant. emoticon Cheers, Keith

    Hi Keith!
Yes -- keep coming in to stay connected here. Without a doubt -- my best mood booster is music!Either play it yourself -- put something on the stereo and bounce around the house. Or take it with you and go for a walk. Any form of exercise can help, although when I'm feeling low, that's when I really just want to lie down!

Your luck is changing and I'm hoping to hear about your new job soon. I hope you don't mind my adding you to my friend list!
Take care. Hang in there!

P.S. I'm envious to hear you play the piano and the clarinet!
