I'm Not Good With Change

The closer I get to nursing school, the more fear and doubt I have.  I'm scared that I won't make it through school.  I'm scared that I'll have anxiety attacks at the sight of blood.  I'm scared of completely changing careers.  Once I start this program, there's no turning back. 

Over the past week, I've received a few emails from readers here that reminded me why I've come this far.  There are so many women who need help and I want to be able to help in a professional capacity.  The only way that's going to happen is if I get through nursing school and get two more degrees under my belt.

It will be worth it. It's natural to have doubts about a serious (and expensive) life change, but this seems like something you've wanted for a long time. Don't let the practicalities get you down too much...just remember all the women you can empathize with and help over the course of your life. Good luck!

All I can say is that the patients who will someday be under your care will be very, very lucky to have you.

Thats great that you want to help people. I am struggling with a painful intercourse disorder called vaginismus and I am in the process of looking into getting botox surgery to cure it. I am documenting my journey to overcome vaginismus on my blog (overcomevaginismus.blogspot.com).
