Good morning all! It's a beautiful day here in Alaska and we are expecting snow this Saturday! Very excited about taking my new (used :)) cross country skis out! Dog park walks in the snow? Yes please! Now to the reason for this posting. I am currently in treatment, still loving the process and I couldn't be more happy with the people I've met through this wonderful facility. I was supposed to graduate come November but lucky me I miss graduation by one day because of the holiday and get to stay through December. Rather than being thankful for being done I get to get the gift of graduation (my positive spin). The ex patient has warned up so to speak and spent a couple weeks ago in hospital and said she wished I could have been there to nurse her. It was heartfelt and very sweet. I find out this month about my contract (provided my facility gets the paperwork to the board soon). I am not losing my license and in fact may not have a suspension since I kept myself out of nursing this past year. Even if I do get a year suspension I am okay with that! I can make a plan...a plan on where I will work for the next year, I couldn't be more excited about that! October 9th will mark a year since I got fired and started this journey. So much has changed and I am happy to report that I am happy, at times blissful, and rarely anxious, sad, or disgruntled. For anyone starting this journey- it does get better. Even Without nursing- it does get better, manageable, exciting. I love you all.
