When it rains it pours...

Thursday, February 02, 2012

So I've slipped back in to my old routines, and while I've thought about working out and getting back on track I haven't managed to push myself to do it. I'm in my 4th term of nursing school and completely stressed. We need Bs to even pass our classes and for each credit hour we have, there is about 5-8 hours of homework a day. It's just ridiculous.

Now I was managing school and doing well, I was even managing to eat well and go for walks. Then a little over a week ago we had to put my grandma on hospice, and I've been helping out with her, and I'm just completely frazzled. I don't feel like I have time to do all my homework/studying, let alone tome to take care of myself. I'm constantly tried and have felt like I'm on the verge of getting sick for the last week.

I want to be able to do everything but I just feel like I'm getting pulled in so many different directions that I don't even know which way is up anymore.

I was doing well when I was checking in on here and I need to start trying to do that, even if it just just for 2 minutes in the morning and at night. Maybe that will help me get back in to trying to take care of myself. Its worth a shot anyway.

    Sounds like you are hitting some turbulence. I know what that is like unfortunately! Don't let it get you down. Easier said than done, right? You have a lot on your plate. Take it easy on yourself. Once things settle down you can try to refocus. I'd try to do one thing each day that makes you happy or smile. Even if it's something small. You may be too tired to put a ton of effort into healthiness (is that a word?!) right now, but at least don't forget that you are special, important, and awesome! I am sure of it! You are a sparker!! Of course you are! Get through this turbulence and be amazed at the sunshine on the other side of these clouds!! Hang in there and do what you can with what you have. You've got this!
