Well I understand why everyone says that there is always something to learn as a student nurse and this last week has been a huge example.
I am with the District nurses at the moment so I am in their cars, well today we got stuck down a back lane as we were coming out of a drive was really tight. Not only did we have to try and move away from being wedged, the clutch nearly burnt out and then we found out that there was a flat tyre. so not only have I been learning dressings and getting control of my driving but I also learnt how to change a tyre on the car haha.
Lets see what my last week next week will be like.
I do apologise that I have been unable to post in a very long time. I have now officially moved into my new house with my fiancé and my sister 🙂 and we are finally settled, the last two weeks have been absolutely manic, NEVER am I moving again lol.
All my exams are now over I have passed everything so far I am just awaiting results on two exams and one essay. Thank goodness for that I really hope to enjoy my summer this year as last year I had to resubmit 2 essays which took up a lot of time. However looking at the lovely British weather I wonder whether we will have a summer haha.
Anyway I am really tight with money at the moment however I have just recently finished my book on the House of night novels if anyone is interested in a book review please comment below. I have also been trying to customise the new home so there may be photos soon because I would love all of your ideas on how I can make my kitchen especially brighter and happier (it is old fashioned with dark brown wood effect doors lol).
I am now off for a good nap and to read my new book “A Touch Of Crimson” by Sylvia day which was suggested to me on Instagram :).
Well revision started again today with drug calculations, infection control, and different types of infections…… I have no idea where my brain will fit all this information but tomorrow I have to remember the names of different heart rates and to tell if they are shock able or not as well as remember emergency situations…. EEK! Does someone feel nice enough to help me.
The exam Thursday will hopefully be my last if I have passed it all and passed my essays (Lets hope then I can enjoy my summer). I then have a practical test the week after, once complete I will just need to focus on my community placement and remembering how wounds heal.
Craig and I are getting on better, just hope a job comes through soon because we surely need one. I have stopped pestering him, which I think he is happy for.
Bless he deals with so much, I stress, cry, yell, all the time. And he deals with my mood swings so well where as most guys would have left me, by mood swings I could laugh one second and yell and cry the next.
Craig and I have been together 5 years and 3 months, and we have been through so much more than most couples our age, such as family loss, family arguments, financial hardship, college and university, renting together, growing up so fast. which has only made us stronger so I am so thankful he is with me.
I have started to get the bills started for us to move, we have a date set for the 21st of this month, and have officially booked a removal company. I am so excited our new place will be so much cheaper and a lot bigger. Hopefully the stress on the relationship will get a lot better, and we can actually enjoy each others company.
Hello all my lovely followers, thankyou for sticking around after all my moaning lately, it means so much to have people support me and tell me about how they are, and to remind me that I am not alone in my problems and that there are people out there in the same situation who have succeeded and fought through everything.
Well my exam is tomorrow on Randomised controlled trials bearing in mind this will be a retake, does anyone want to talk my place?
I also have to do my practical prep tomorrow morning before the exam, so back into my uniform it is, going to be so uncomfortable in the exam.
I am so tired it is unreal, but wanted to update you all on what I am doing as my last post on stress seemed to be a big hit.
I will be reading again soon, at the moment my reading includes anatomy and physiology as well as general nursing care, and drug calculations :-p are you mind boggled yet haha.
However starting next week I can get back into reading the latest house of night book 🙂 I am so looking forward to that, and I better get packing as we move on the 21st YAY! into a 2 bed house with my little sister.
I am super stressed out and emotional lately that I am snapping at my finacé constantly 😦
I have two exams this week followed by a practical the week after, I am also trying to clean and pack as we are moving to a house with my sister to make it cheaper for us. And doing placement 5 days a week.
But what is really stressing me out is that myself and my fiancé have no money and we cannot get help anywhere, the university say that I am not in an emergency, the banks can’t help, and neither can the council.
I am a full time student and my fiancé works on commission, we are trying to find him a new job as he is a mechanic and plumber but no one will take him as he has no experience, how stupid is that. I worry about where the rent and bills are going to come from in the next couple months. But what annoys me most is that we are hard working people and the country cannot help people like us in financial situations. 😥
I just hope something picks up in a minute because I am so close to a melt down it is unreal.
Sorry for the rant everyone please understand that this is why I am not posting at the moment because blogging is the last thing on my mind at the moment. But I do miss it.
