I have been struggling with keeping a job for many years. I would get fired from every job. I am a nurse who graduated top of my class so I could not understand this. I learned through therapy that although I was a nurse at heart I was a counselor. I wanted to stand by my patients and help them through the rough times. Today I am a hospice nurse for 2 years. I love my job and I feel I am in the perfect job where I connect with patients and their families. Thank you Nilda for helping me through this.     Amanda Q.
