I use only a tiny bit of critical thinking - dealing with interns means questioning orders on occasion. The ED does nothing for me if I decide to go back to CRNA school, and it's looking that way. I feel funny about leaving a job I just started, though. Doesn't look so great. Don't get to see my son more.

Option 2. Return to CVICU. My educator and I crossed paths as I was leaving work the other day - she ran up and hugged me, told me she missed me, and that I could come back any time. This unit WOULD do a lot for my career. I get to play with sick patients. I get to use my critical thinking skills - I enjoy the intellectual challenge that keeps my patients alive. It sucks giving bed baths, though. I also don't like a lot of the coworkers, but no big deal - the Wellbutrin helps. My boyfriend works there...but so does the guy that I fooled around with one night last year. Although, again, not too big of a deal, might just be uncomfortable the first time we all cross paths. This unit gets me into any grad school of my choice. Don't get to see my son more.

Option 3. Return to North Alabama and start in one of their ICUs. Really big pros - I would see my son more and not pay child support, also would get my debt under control the fastest. Cons - I hate the hospital. I would be living with my parents again and attending church to satisfy their requirements for living under their roof. I love my mother, but she reaaaaallly stresses me out. I would have to end things with my boyfriend, and things are going really well now - he is also wanting to do CRNA school. If I were to live with my boyfriend I could get my debt paid off really quickly that way, too. As well as practically walk to school from his house. Leaving definitely takes that option off the plate.

I don't know what to do and it's stressing me out. I thought I had decided to go home, but sheesh. I guess what it really boils down to is do I end things with the man I'm in love with, start a new job again and live with my parents in order to see my son more, OR switch back to my old unit and deal with all of the uncomfortableness involved with that as well as no improvement with how often I see my son, but get to keep the boyfriend and put myself back in a great position for grad school.

If you pick Option 3, can you just make sure you're scheduled to work every Sunday?

2016 the gift that just keeps on giving.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

That's a hard choice to make.

It seems to me that you'd rather pick the second option? If you did that how long is it going to take. And will you be able to pick a grad school close to your son? How much would it matter that you left your current position if you are doing the grad school?

Option thee seems to be all about your son and that counts for a lot. But it seems to come with lots of negatives too. Stuff that can make one crash and burn over time. So again it seems time should be factored in too. How much time do you stand to gain/loose with your son.

*Giant bear hug*

You can get your hug when you have shaved that head.

Does it help that it's totally NOT ME, it's my autism spectrum kid that right now has me wanting to run away.

I would sit with your options a little...then if I couldn't think of a good reason or even a excuse....

Go with your gut feeling...it rarely lies.

How bad is it? They must have been there for a while. Are you sure you're in the clear? To be honest I'd rather you'd just shave of the hair.

But I guess I'll have to trust you. Besides if you end up passing some on to me then I'll just shave my hair off.

*Hugs*

Not a nit or louse to be found.

I'm clean. Smile

My son...well, the verdict is out...but he's not coming with me. Tongue
