An update. It took a few months but I finally secured my first job as a nurse! I am working part time at an adult day care center. The people are nice and friendly, mostly seniors, and I tend to any medical needs that might come up. Vital signs, insulin injections, etc. I can't quit my day job yet, but, it's a start.
I am truly grateful for and have been humbled by my wonderful experience so far. I feel really, really good and of value for the first time in a while. I'd like to thank everyone here for your unwavering support thru my journey. It's the beginning of a new phase in my life and I am soooo looking forward to it!
