I’m a 30yo female and a oncology nurse. I have suffered from depression/anxiety pretty much my whole life off and on. I have been on and off medications since th age of 14. I also have a history of drug abuse.
After my divorce 3 years ago, I felt like I was finally able to get off of medications. I felt “normal” and naturally happy without them. I recently underwent extensive knee surgery about 6 months ago. Ever since then I have felt anxious and depressed again. I got put back on meds about 2 months ago, along with a beta blocker for my heart rate. I know these things take time to really start working but I find it hard to get out of bed and go to work most days.
Looking back on it, I have not always had the best track record with holding a job. I think the longest I’ve ever stayed at a place was 2-3 years. I’ve had more jobs over the past 10 years of being a nurse than I can count. I have been at my current job for 4 months now and I love it. Some days I can’t wait to go to work and then others I can’t make myself get out of bed.
Anyone else feel this way? Help!
