Hi Rehabnurse: Just read your post and I wish I was there to give you a big hug. I know that things look impossible right now but tomorrow is a new day (and the day after, and the day after that, etc.) and things will get better. The last post about going to the SS office is good advice. Please do it. Your kids need you! You are young and even though, right now, it seems that things will never get better, they will! Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and eventually, you will look back and know that you were strong enough to make it through. I know you have a caring, lovely heart - you have to have that to have made it through nursing school and then while you were nursing. Believe me, I know what it takes to be a nurse - especially to adult patients - I admire anyone that can take care of "big" people.
Anyway, I wish I had some good advice. All I know is that I want you to understand that you are cared about. I have been worried about you for a couple of weeks. Please hang in there and if you need to talk, just email me. I think you can just click on my screen name here and it will take you to my email. If not, post on here and I will post my address.
Hang in there, kiddo. I will pray that God surround you with his love and hold you in his hand. Remember, at times like this when you feel like there is no one there for you and there are only one set of footprints in the sand, it is because God is carrying you in his arms!
