A Difficult Admission

This is a very difficult thing for me to say to all, but it is time for me to stop being so close-mouthed about it. I have failed my course in Physical Therapist Assistant. Last Tuesday night I had a third chance to pass a lab test and I didn't. You get three chances, and if you do not pass, you are out of the program.

Today would've been the next class in the program, as I used to have Monday's and Wednesday's off. I'm not myself; I keep feeling the urge that I must be studying, but there is nothing to study! I should be in class, but there's no class for me to go to. What will I do now?

Being a faithful sort; I am sure that there is a divine reason for this failure. My life is not supposed to go in this direction. I feel adrift on a raft, not seeing an island nearby. It is my hope that I will see land soon.

It will be okay, you will find another niche (like making more knitting bags? yes?). Thanks for all you do.

Brenda,

I am so sorry that you are having to deal with this. Have you talked to a counselor yet? Last fall, my daughter failed one of her nursing courses. In order to continue, she would have to reapply to the program and start over. When she went and talked to the counselor at school, she finally admitted to him and to herself that she really didn't want to do the nursing. The counselor helped her figure out what she could do without totally losing all the credit she had accumulated. I highly recommend it.

It is not the end of the world . . . just a little bump in the road.

Oh, I will give myself some time. My teacher suggested that I take Applied Anatomy & Physiology next semester. All last weekend, I thought to myself how I wouldn't be so sad to fail this class. The class was not what I suspected; sure...I knew it was physical but it was missing something.
