So I Got This Idea
I've decided in the last few weeks that I need to get back to work. Babysitting is a nice little bit of income and lets me stay home with the kids. But really, it's pocket change in this day and age. So I think I'm going to attempt to return to my roots. Return to who I was before I had the babies. A medical transcriptionist. Ummm, I've been out of that field for 5 years. I dabbled a bit in it after the babies were born and home, but my brain was mush. I just couldn't focus on it and take care of them. So I stopped working. I decided that it wasn't something I was going to do again. That my brain capacity has been severely altered due to birthing more than one kid out of my body and being drugged to the max to do that. But what choice to I have, really? Go out and get a 2nd shift grocery store job or try to get back in to the field and work from home and still be available - on a limited basis - for my family. So I'm choosing the latter. I'm scared. I'm not sure I can do it. But I'm also getting excited at the thought. I've been talking to a MT friend. I've been perusing the net and re-familiarizing myself with the biz. I loved doing the work. I love typing. I love having a tidy little income. So wish me luck. Think good thoughts that a company will consider a rusty, mentally out of shape transcriptionist as a valuable employee!
