Full-time student and full-time work is hard

“My dad wanted to name me after his grandmother, but her name was Zelda. My mom didn’t want to name me Zelda, so they named me November after the month she was born in. It used to bother me when I was younger, now it is an ice breaker. It relaxes people. I just finished my microbiology final and I am in school to be a nurse. Full-time student and full-time work is hard. I feel like I am treading water so I come out here and breathe. I was in a bad car crash in February and couldn’t get out of bed for three weeks. My boyfriend at the time took take care of me. It was hard to be dependent on someone else and put strain on both of us. I got behind in school and work and I am still playing catch up. I understand more about symptoms and pain from the patient’s point of view. The first week I was in so much pain, I wondered why I survived. I appreciate walking, sitting up, and sleeping through the night so much more now. I want to work in trauma and then be a nurse anesthetist. I like the feeling of being needed and helping people. I don’t want to have limitations in my life like I have now. If there is something I want or need, I want to be able to take care of that. I have a great support system who doesn’t let me quit. I know life is in God’s hands and there is a tiny light at the end of this long tunnel.”
