I feel like I'm not going anywhere...

I got pregnant when I was 19. I withdrew from college to work full time since my husband was just about finished with his schooling and I had just started. I didn't want to put more on him since he was so close to graduating. He graduated, got a good job & I've been a SAHM for 2 years now. I went back to school in Janurary. I worked around his schedule, to avoid cost of daycare/babysitters, and I was doing great in all of my classes. Well 2 months ago I started having medical issues & doctors couldn't figure out what was happening with me. I had to withdraw from all but one of my classes (one of the teachers is working with me) since it's so close to the end of the semester and my teachers and I decided it was better than messing up my GPA. Point of this is I feel like I'm not going anywhere with my life. I love being a wife and mother. I am so thankful that I've been able to be home with my child and know that bills are getting paid and food is put on the table. I just feel like a failure sometimes.. I feel like its going to take me forever to get where I want to. Seems like there's always some sort of roadblock.

With that being said.. I do know that I made my own decisions and I could have pushed through school to be done now. I did what I felt was right. I'm just a little frustrated right now.

Ahh okay vent over.

Hugs. I feel your pain. I'm 26, an LPN and about to start school for my RN. It sucks that I didn't finish before I had dd.

 I am in the same boat. I started school in 2006 and I'm only about halfway done. Road blocks all of the time. I was going to try to get into an LPN program this fall since my dd was going to Kindergarten all day and I didn't have to worry about daycare. Then I found out I was pregnant. We will both get there one day. Don't give up!

I feel the same way.. I was one year away from finishing the RN program then we moved. Before that I was accepted into a different RN program but moved too. Now I feel like I'll be in my 30's before I'll ever be a nurse.

As long as you keep trying then one day you will get there. Keep your goal in mind and it will help keep motivate you toward it.

I'm actually on the fence between going for the LPN program and then going back or just doing the RN program. Good luck with the schooling! I hope it goes well!

Congrats on being pregnant! And thank you, you don't give up either! I'm sure it'll all work out!

Oh man. I'm sure that must be frustrating! Can your credits transfer?
