It's been a while since I last posted anything. To tell you the truth things have become very busy for me. I have now become a single working mother of 2. After 13 years together, my husband decided he is no longer happy and believes he can find happiness in greener pastures. Yes. This has been a very hard time for me and my children but we are getting through it. I have to admit that I was very depressed for a long time before this even happened. I took the initiative to pull myself up out of my whole and start to make life better. He didn't like the changes I was making. He admitted it. Even though this is a troubling time for us, I keep making changes for the better for my family, even though it is smaller. I've talked with friends that are in healthcare. It seems that there is a high number of people in the industry that have major breakups like this. I can't help but wonder why. Is it the hours? Or the way this industry starts to change us? What exactly is the cause of nurses having a higher bracket of divorce rate? There are so may factors that you just can't count. But we are a community that bands together in good times and bad. I have to say that my friends have banded together to help me keep my head up. Hats off to you all. If you are going through this like I am, keep your head up. I know that it is difficult. You will make it through just like me and so many others.
