hugs to you! I read your post yesterday and was thinking about it because it reminds me of myself not too long ago.... I was in almost the same situation - in nursing school, psych rotation, and thinking that I was at least as crazy as the people in the hospital if not crazier! I was just barely holding it together. I ended up going to the university counseling center and doing all sorts of crazy tests. Then to the shrink there who Rx'd me a whopping dose of Zoloft right before a patho final, which I bombed because I was so out of it from the meds. Anyway, long story short, I *was* suffering and was so relieved to find out that what was going on was for real!
Anyway, I'm rambling. I think that if you're noticing that if the way you're feeling is interfering with your life, then it's definitely worth checking out. No counselor or psychiatrist is going to think badly of you for being proactive in taking care of your mental health! Even though I ended up having a bad experience at my particular counseling center, I eventually got everything worked out with the meds, my patho final, and life in general! I went back to school for my NP in psych nursing, moved across the country, and now have a wonderful little family - I'm proud that I got help for myself and grateful that the resources were available to me. You can do it and you'll be so glad you did! Please check in and let us know how you're doing, and let me know if there's anything at all I can do to help you out!
