Nursing student wanting to quit.
I have been in this nursing program for a long time over 4 years now, but I kept dropping classes and having to retake them. I feel like I’ve gone through so many delays in this stage of my life and I don’t know what to do. I have to retake many classes, I eventually failed out of the program, but I got reenstated after applying again. Mostly all my friends have graduated and started working already, but I’m still in this program. I’m embarrassed to talk to them and mention that I’m still in school. To tell everyone the truth, when I was out of the program I felt like such a relief and happiness along with failure and grief. I started working, but the pay sucked. I felt so relived yet sad about not completing the program. I feel like Im not smart, everyone gets in my way and I let them, family is not supportive, and everything else matters more than graduating. I think it’s my depression that won’t allow me to succeed. I thought it was laziness, but my therapist told me it might be depression. When I’m not depressed, I can complete all my assignments earlier than expected. With depression, I procrastinate to the point of not even doing the assignments. I feel like quitting, but I’m almost done.
