As a nurse, you might encounter both good weeks and terrible weeks. Some weeks you sail right on through and some weeks you may consider to be just absolutely disastrous. Nevertheless, you’re able to tough it out through it all, and your dedication and passion to care for those around you keep you afloat.
But there are also times when it becomes way too much, too much for anyone, even nurses, to handle. It gets too exhausting and insanely overwhelming that it seems impossible to recover from all the emotions that weigh you down.
You may feel empowered because you know you’re strong enough to handle everything that most people can’t even imagine, but dark days have their way of making you question your strength and ability. What can we say? It’s a bumpy, tricky ride.
