    I am in the same position. Have been an LVN for 17 years and dealing with the same issues. This is all I have known and have RA and am falling into a deep depression. Am told by Dr I need to get on disability. I have thought about starting a group home and letting someone run it. I have also thought about going back and getting a degree in pyschology and do counselling. That would be a career behind a desk.

    I feel like there is a lot of pressure to work in traditional nursing jobs. I have a shoulder injury after working in direct pt care for over 25 yrs. I am very excited to find other types of work. My biggest reservation about it is being judged by others because I wont be working in hands on care. If you are on a lot of meds and your MD has restricted you from lifting why do you want to continue hurting yourself and potentially hurt a patient?
