Adventure before dementia
Yes, I've just seen my last official patient!

Wow - a couple of years ago I vnever thought I would be typing that! 

I will always be an osteopath - so will continue to treat family and friends (they all asked me that when I told them the news!!)

However my public liability finishes at midnight - so I am unable to work any more.

I am still looking for my future - and on Tuesday will go and register unemployed.  I have applied for quite a few jobs in a wide variety of areas, but as of yet have not been successful.

However, even with this complete upheavel in my life I still feel it is the right thing to do.

Working part time is great to spend time on-line with friends - but, it doesn't pay the bills, and it is so easy to just let life drift away.  So, I must just focus on the fact that the rest of my life is waiting for me - what ever that ends up being.

Thank you - it's a weird stage to be at!

It sounds like you're in a good place mentally and that you're convinced that this step is God's will - and that makes such a difference! I'm sure the right job will come up. Enjoy your freedom in the meantime!

Thank you - yes, it is a step of faith - but I feel positive that this is the way God is leading me at this time.

With each ending comes a new beginning. Life is about changes. Nothing stays the same. We must move forward.

I left a long term job a few years ago. I knew for about a year ahead that it would end. Months before that point, I hurt my back. So the last few months I didn't even work. I was given a sum of money due to my job being deleted in my company. Since my back still wasn't up to me working, I was out of work for about two years. I really needed that time off. Now I'm back to work and it is stressful. Not so much the work as a person who is a bit of a drama queen. Hopefully things there will improve.

What is head for you? It's an adventure if you chose to see it that way. The right job will come your way. Then you might find your life has improved in ways you never thought would happen.

Thank you so much, Kuda - yes part of this move is taking active control of my life that I had let drift.

Whatever the next stage is, I know with God (and friends) I shall be able to face it.

I hope that things will stay positive as the days progress - and will be able to look back on these days as just "another" step.

Thanks for that positive thought at the end, as well.

Wow! What a big day for you Debs.

It must be a little scary? Are you worried about the future? Any idea what you would like to do? I am sure you will be okay, I have been and will continue speaking to the boss about you daily. *huG*

Thanks Jamie - it was weird how the day suddenly sneaked up on me.

No real idea - I look for "that" special pathway to light up for me - but I am looking at a range of options - so keep praying ... and trusting.

It's been the support of a few friends that have meant so much to me - hugs you back.

Wow, I knew that this was coming because you have mentioned it in your LJ. Still it is a big change, actually big changes ahead. Good luck in all.

Thanks - yes, it suddenly arrived ... but at least I am still feeling positive.
