Is my life better as a DN? For me YES. I was really depressed and hating the world and myself. Getting up going to a job I hated, in a bland office I hated, working 9 – 5 plus more hours, drinking too much and eating too much to cover up my sad repetitive life. The change has been difficult at times, there have been really high ups and some really low downs, but I feel like I am living and not wasting away in some cubicle not doing anything with my life.
