I retired from critical care several yrs ago and HATED retirement. I have severe rhematoid arthritis(the reason I had to retire) Actually was doing okay with my retirement benefits. But I just hated being home all the time and I did miss the occassional adrenalin rush.
About a yr ago I got a job watching heart monitors and I even let my license lapse. I just wanted to check in and tel you guys I just love this job! I only work weekends and take one weekend a month off. I still get a tiny little adrenaline rush now and again and I have made a great rappoir (sic) with the nurses on the floors. I have to say though every now and again I think I could go back to the ICU and be a young blood. My family AND my new work family just laugh and laugh! but I have to say this is the most perfect job for an old retiree from ICU.
