Loosing My Nerve? You Decide

Are you ready for the raw truth readers?  I feel that I am loosing my nerve to do anything.  I don't feel brave and strong anymore.  I really feel this way about work.  I  feel I am not doing enough, failing the kids, loosing my edge.  I get scared to go to work. But in my defense I have 28 children in which about 8 of them are considered special needs.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job and my kids.  There isn't one that I wouldn't want to take home with me.  But it is really exhausting work.  (work pity party over)

In other areas of life I am feeling the same way.  It is getting harder and harder to push all of these feelings down.  It is hard work to do that.  Rest assured that I am not giving into these feelings.  I have sought help.
I have an appointment in Feb. to a doctor that will look at my medication.

Thanks for listening to me.  I hope I was able to convey how I feel.  Please advise and encourage.  Thanks.

Ms. really need to go to your doctor and talk to him/her about these feelings. I've been there, too, and it can be so frustrating. Praying for you, sweet Lady!

I think we all go through periods like that. Having said that, I don't I could ever handle a class of 28!

I agree with Jill. We all have ups and downs in our confidence level. And a class of 28 with 8 special needs children is no small thing!

I will keep you in my prayers, Karen.
