Dealing with Depression on the Road

Your shift is in the morning, but the thoughts are already invading your mind. And you know they will get worse as the night goes on. As these thoughts spin and spin, you’re letting your mind create and review each worst case scenario. You know that the thoughts will continue to worsen while you’re getting ready in the morning, while you’re driving and you’re to the point where you can feel your heartbeat out of your chest as you take the elevator up to your floor. You never get used to it, but it has become part of the job. You’re a nurse with depression, and no one knows…not even you.
