Stress board


Where do I begin.....lets see. I'm a 21 year old female. My life right now seems crazy and the stress is really getting to me. I'm getting married 3 weeks from today and going crazy with all the last minute planning. We still have so much to do it seems like. My job is stressful. I'm a phlebotomist at a local hospital. I work 2nds and I just started there about 5 weeks ago. I'm the only phleb on that shift. That means I have the whole hospital to myself when it comes to drawing specimens. And it is WAY too much for just one person. Anyone in the healthcare profession would understand. I also have a 2 year old at home, and every parent know that 2 year olds are a full-time job alone, lol. I love my daughter more than anything though. Her and my fiance is what keeps me going. I also start nursing school in August. I am going for my RN. I'm beginning to wonder how I think I am going to handle the stresses of nursing school on top of everything else. It seems like I can never relax. There is always something to be done. If I'm not working or chasing after my 2 year old, I'm worrying about the wedding or cleaning my house. I'm on a low dose of prozac to help me cope with it all but I'm beginning to wonder if it's really helping all that much. What do you do when you're overstressed yet cannot relieve yourself of your stressors? Please help!
