  • try taking classes online in the comfort of your own home. Unless of course, it has to be hands on. The key is finding your nitch and really thinking through what you want to do. Then, you have to stick it out. Does not mean you are stupid at all. It just means that just because you wanted to do it, it wasn't right for you.

  • First and foremost - DON'T GIVE UP - BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!!! Secondly, coming from someone who did not finish school until I was 32 - it is not too late! Third, you need to look towards the things you love and enjoy doing - that is where you will be most successful - not all jobs require degrees (not saying school is not important) but work with what you enjoy. Fourth, as a special education teacher who deals with ADD / ADHD students and students with anxiety issues - there are ways to be successful in school. Most institutions of higher learning have departments that will help find accommodations for students who have issues you mentioned. Finally, be strong for yourself and your children. You mentioned both being a caring mom and wanting to be a teacher have you looked into day care or pre-school teaching or teacher's assistant???? This could be a starting place.....

  • You are not a failure. First of all, find something that you are interested in. Do you like law, medical things, etc? Find something that interests you and then explore career opportunities in those fields. Also start out with a little bit at a time. If you are going to take nursing for example, don't take a full course load. Start out with 1 or 2 classes at max and then finish them and then take more.

    Maybe you are just not ready to go back to school yet. It doesn't mean you are a failure at all. You haven't found the right "niche" yet.

    Best of luck to you. don't let it get you down.

  • I am still like this. I am frickin' 40 now and now it's like whatever, forget it. My mom is old and sick and I have dedicated my life to her and of course my son. The thing that sucks is that I never knew I had a knack for working with children. I always just landed jobs and even drove school buses for a few years but, circumstances just led me elsewhere. I do work for the school district but no where near the pay I could have received had I gone to college.

  • I don't think giving up is a good idea, but I wouldn't rush into anything either! I mean, maybe the problem is that you aren't sure what the heck you actually want to do....What are you good at? What do you enjoy? How can you see yourself working? Do you want a regular full time job with predictable hours or lots of flexiblity? Honestly, maybe some counseling and aptitude tests, along with some serious thought.....before you start another program and see yourself as even more of a failure. Have you thought about trying some medication for the add/anxiety? It sounds like the conditions are really effecting your life.
