I don't know what I am anymore.
I am 39 (40 in December), Mom to dd 24, dsX3 20, almost 19 & step 13 and Grandma to Dylan 8 months.
I have been an RN for 13 years, the last 10 in Peds. Up until 2 weeks ago I worked FT at a Peditrician's office. I lost my job when the powers that are decided the didn't need to pay nurses to do telephone triage/advice and replaced us with MAs and lay people trained in house. Yes, I am pissed.
So now I'm staying at home, thinking of ways to make a little money on the side. After 1 year of unemployment I can draw SS disability (long story, was certified disabled 2 years ago didn't have to stop working as my now ex employer made a bunch of accomidations, I am in a wheel chair about 50% of the time).
