Told my immediate boss, unit manager and the CNS (Clinical Nurse Specialist) that I was fed up and needed a move. Also spoke to Phil's boss prior to that and he assured me they have vacancies and as a Mental Health Nurse, I can move over there very easily. Just had enough of here I work right now. So today, I placed my application form, practice certificate and last year's CV in my prospective boss's hands and told him I expect to hear from him soon. Fingers crosed that is the case!!
But apart from that, I wouldn't change much at all. It's not often in life that you can sit back and truly appreciate what you have. You tend to get so caught up in the daily stresses and the sheer grind of life that you forget to value what you have. After the stresses of the last year I guess I now hold dear what I have: my beautiful boys in Scotland; my other family and cherished friends in Britain; my star of a daughter; my happiness and independence; the BE forum and the friends I have gained from that (far too numerous to mention but their support and steadfastness has seen me through all my 'down time' and I honestly don't know how I would have made it without them); my fantastic Phil (who makes me so happy). He has helped me regain some feeling of self worth and self esteeem.
Also just heard back today that I have another colonoscopy appointment - this time with full anaesthetic. DEAR ME!! My colon is going to be so well photoghraphed that I expect to see it next time I head through Mount Victoria Tunnel on all the hoardings: Look; see this; this is Karen's intestinal tract!! Want a closer look!! So many people will have seen it that it may as well be public property!!
Right, my lovely man is in from work and I need to spend some time with him...
