Hello I am new here and am hoping I am putting this post in the write place. I am asking for help with my situation.
The past couple of years I have been working as a RN. FINALLY graduated in Dec1999. I have ER related backgroud(EMT 4 yrs in Milwaukee). Which taught me so much. The adrenaline addict I am. I started out in a stepdown unit, which became so difficult after awhile. I have 3 kids, a husband thats a Firefighter
/Paramedic, and works 24 hr shifts. As others have said "You have a full plate". To add to this fun I started having problems with fatigue/memory problems/slurring. All affected my next 4 jobs. Problems got worse, had to stop work(never want to endanger my pts). They had told me poss MS for about 14 months. Last MRI was Confusing-went to MAYO clinic in Rochester Minn.. Came back with: CFIDS, bi-lat carpul tunnel, Chronic Migraines, sleeping disorder which added to the old Dx of: Asthma/allergies, depression, chronic sinusitis( had surg 2 wks ago). Now I am somewhat relieved I can send some of these things away/or treat them. I am feeling better little by little, and able to get some of my abilities back. There of course is much more to the story-but didn't want to write a book. Please write me if you have any suggestions for a RN job again that I could do. Live in small town, bigger ones approx 60 miles away. Anything encouraging or full of advice is welcome!
