Catching up.

Life is a wild ride. And I'm holding on tight.
Let's review the past year or so, lovelies.

  • I worked as a rehab nurse in a skilled nursing facility. Then wound care. Then unit manager/charge nurse. Then nursing supervisor. Then I quit after two years of blood, sweat, and tears. I walked away and I won't look back.
  • I met the man of my dreams. 
  • I flew halfway across the country [multiple times] to be with him.
  • I made plans. Big plans. Pack-up-and-leave-everything-I've-ever-know-just-to-be-with-him kinda plans. 
  • I got pregnant. 
  • I had a miscarriage. 
  • The man of my dreams and I broke up. It was...painful. It still is. 
  • I became a psych nurse working at the best hospital in Louisiana. 
  • I am slowly starting to love myself again. I thought that I was never worth love. From anyone else, let along myself. I felt terrible about myself, like I am so easy to leave. It is so easy for people [friends, lovers, family] to just walk out of my life. I am not going to fight someone if they want to leave. 
I know this is a lot to absorb. And to be honest, I have a hard time believing that it has been 2 years since I have become an RN. So much has happened. So much about me and my life has changed. 

Also, I can't wait to let you all know what it is like to  be a psychiatric nurse. :)

I'm so sorry for all the headache you have been through this year.
I found your blog while looking up stuff for nursing school. I'm enjoying very much!

I hope so much that you have found your love for yourself again. I hope that this last year of your life has brought you better things and to a better place. And, if not, I hope this coming year does.
