Hello everyone! I'm glad I found this group.I just want to ask for an advice. I am female, 27 years old and I never had a job in my life. I was suffering from major depression and anxiety. I am studying now to become a pre school teacher. But i was a nurse. I never worked in the hospital but I had the chance to be trained in the ICU, cardiovascular unit and on the ward for 1 month. This was almost 3 years ago. The reason why I enrolled in pre school teaching was because nursing is so stressful and i cannot keep up with it. During that 1 month training, i find it difficult to carry out the skills that I have to do because of anxiety. I am constantly thinking that i would make a mistake and its is to hard. My biggest fear was what if i could harm a patient? My anxiety is really getting out of the way. My doctor (psychiatrist) said i should switch careers. But what if i still wanted to become a nurse? My attitude is like this, what if i woudn't learn how to use or set the infusion pump?! And anxiety would eat me up.
Does any body know how to fight this kind of anxiety?
Not being able to work leaves me depressed. Sigh
Should I continue with my pre school studies and not go back to Nursing?
Please help me
