    Just wondering how you're doing. It's not easy having a horrible job,being a single parent, and dealing with the emotions that you feel when your husband leaves you. I have been there and I know just how you feel. I hope things are better for you now. Please give us an update and let us know how you are.

    I found another job closer to home than the last one, pays 10,000/yr more than the last DON position I held. Who says you cant start over. In the last month, I have been settling in, its amazing the difference and cooperation I get here. There was definatly something wrong in that last facility, like I said, they just didnt want me there. Ive learned alot from that experience and moving forward. My ADM is great, she listens to me and is very easy to talk to. She holds the facility depts accountable, and doesnt take no crap when it comes to others not working together. THanks for asking. My husband and I are working things out.

Interesting, I think I have figured out what I should do...Thanks for the posts, helpful to see it from another side!
