I discovered "dog rescue" videos on youtube over the weekend. I know what I'd like to do with my life now - lol?? The trouble is, I've got to make a living also.
What I've studied in school was "Medical Front Office," but my professor also said we should "Follow our passion," and there have been a couple of students who did their externship at a vet's office. The trouble is, this seems to me to be an irreversible decision. No medical office is going to consider that as experience in working in a medical office. One of my classes was medical coding basics, which I found to be VERY interesting. But at my age, would I ever be able to "break into the biz", ya know? And there's money for the certification test, yearly books to be bought ($300), yearly continuing ed just to keep your certification - never mind whether you have a job or not. Maybe it was a pipedream & unrealistic.
I just can't decide if I'm ready to give up on medical admin yet. Or - am I REALLY "giving up" anything? Is this totally the right move for me? I really do love animals, and even my husband says he just wants me to work somewhere that I ENJOY what I'm doing! He says that our age, he can't see doing something where we're miserable. And then I come back with - "How bout living in a HOUSE!?? Well, we have to PAY for that you know!" lol You can see $$ is an issue at our house.
Anyway - I want to follow my heart, but can't decide where my heart wants to go, plus don't want to be STUPID on a WHIM either.
