By April 3, 2011 - 4:17pm

I didn't know to much about burn out or major deppression,but what I now know is to be kind to myself and that is alot of work in its self.I have seen and been through so much sorrow and endurand it for so long being a nurse and in my own life I felt I caved/gave in,but I didn't I relized that the doctors reported I had burn out that to much was going on in my life and I was trying so hard to keep everything under control.This went on for 12 years during these years my husband had cancer my mom was very ill and my dad was confused and angry all the time and my workplace was always understaffed I was constantly running in circles and under pressure.I now live alone and on disability trying hard to put myself together again.My husband passed away 2007 Feb, and my mom 2010 and just recently my sister Feb 2011. I go for alot of walks and try to make sense of it all,I still enjoy the little things in life that we all sometimes overlook and that makes life worth while.
