I’ve been hoping that sometime in the next few months I might be able to go back to work. My stomach has been feeling a lot better in the last two or three months so I’m hoping that my Crohn’s flare is finally beginning to die down.
Of course, as I sit here typing this out my abdomen is hurting. LOL I guess I’m having a bad day Crohn’s wise, but this if the first time it’s really acted up badly in a few months. If I cross my fingers and toes maybe it will pass and I’ll continue to feel better.
I can wish can’t I?
One reason I’m hoping to go back to work is that we’re struggling with just Chris, my husband, working. Oh sure I make some money via my websites and blogs, and it helps a lot, but lately it’s not quite enough to cover our monthly expenses.
So maybe in April or so I’ll be able to start back at work in my job as an ER nurse. I know I’d only be allowed to work short hours for the first few weeks before they put me back on my regular 12 hour shifts, but it’d be nice to get back there. I love my job.
I’ve also been thinking of looking into medical travel as well. Some of my nurse friends have been flight nurses. You know, going to a remote area or even another country to pick up someone who’s sick and bring them back home for care in the hospital or to recover from whatever ails them in their own home.
I’ve always thought that that would be something interesting to do for a while. Plus if I do go back to work my schedule would probably allow me to work part time in medical travel as I typically would work four 12 hour shifts and then have five days off … I could travel during those days off.
Ok maybe that’s too much for me to begin with, but if I do start to get healthy enough to go back to work that would be fantastic!
Have you ever been off work due to an illness for a lengthy period of time? Didn’t it feel good to get back to work again?
