I don't know how to deal with the stress anymore

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm sorry to just join and spurt out all but I dont know what to do. I get so stressed and I just dont know how to stop/deal with it. Im very much drowning. I'm training to be a veterinary nurse which involves working full time at an understaffed vets surgery whilst studying for the copious amount of exams, essays and experience logging. Work is so stressful as I am literally doing the work of aout 3 nurses. I could voice my concerns but what can they do? They need more nurses but there is a shortage.Thats what makes me stress more is that actually NOTHING can be done to fix it.  Thanks for listening guys. Sorry about the bold and italics at the end I can't seem to switch it off.

    Its fine this is the place to post ur problems that affect so many talk about it with your partner or close friends that's what they are for,all I can say is its great to have a great opportunity for such a great career and will be hard and a struggle but I'm sure you will be OK stress hits us all some more than others and some with nothing to stress about so write down things worrying u and take a little time out for itself how ever little it may be good luck

    I am not surprised you are stressed with all that going on.  Anybody would feel the same.  That is such a difficult situation.  Well done for wanting to do such a worthwhile job.  I do hope the stress eases.

    I have met some vet nurses doing volunteering and they are all fabulous people.  Keep your spirits up this work experience will stand you in good stead in the future.

    I hope you can manage without pills because they really  make you more tired.
