Work Changes

I had to post and say thanks. I was a lurker then a posted then I went back to lurking. It’s been a rough few years. I went into survival mode over the last few months. I came to the decision that I had to change my work.

Next week I start a new position outside of a clinic. I won’t be taking care of patients anymore. I will be working mostly from home. I can’t wait to have quiet. I can’t wait to be in my own space where I don’t have to worry about people coming into my office and making demands. I won’t have to be running on fumes then try tp help suicidal patient. No more begging patients to get treatment only to have them die because they don’t believe COVID is real. No more people yelling at my because a prescription didn’t get filled immediately two minutes after I found out someone died.

I am glad I was there when I was. I know I was needed at the time. But my mental health suffered. I’ve been living in a constant state of high alert for months.

I’ve seen you all make difficult steps and push yourselves to heal. I’m not out of the woods yet. I still feel raw, tired, and overwhelmed. But I can actually see room to heal now.

gentle empathy, rn. coronaville has been a rough ride for all. i'm an engineer by trade and am clueless on the inner stresses of the medical profession, but the yaddahs of this past 2 plus years have been horrific. my youngest foster child chipped her two front teeth in a bathtub fall early in 2020. because of her extreme youth, the dentist wanted to perform the repairs in a hospital outpatient clinic. two-thirds of her life later, the teeth are becoming painful and? ? ? ya know, ya know. if it ain't covid, it still don't count. healing hopes for all. no exceptions.

steadying support while you make the transition to your new position.

I know that regardless of who you are the last few years have been rough. It doesn't have to be covid related. From the point of view of my clinic at least, we don't discount pain that is unrelated to covid.
