Yep, I seem to do that alot. About a month and a half ago I went into work. Got everything ready for my patients and was pulled aside by my supervisor to be told I was being laid off. They didn't warn the doctor I had worked with for the last 6 years or anyone else, I was replaced with 2 newer part timers so they could save on insurance and wages. I was devastated. I had lived that job since I left nursing school. My old Friends candy corn and chocolate rejoined me. I moped and muddled.

I have had some time to reflect. I was pretty burned out. I wasn't aware of it at the time. I needed a change, but never would have made that change by myself. I call it all for the better. But Lady have mercy you'd have thought someone told me I was diagnosed with cancer of the puppy.
Today was first day back at the gym. I need to make that a daily thing again. I felt so much better afterwards. Just time to get back on track. Had an awesome Saturday night at a friends B-day party. My fellow Dj's and I tore it up for 6 1/2 hour solid!!!!!!! Great new tuneage btw. M y gem from the evening is right here.

It was such a good night. Reset my attitude in a big way.

    Sorry to hear about you being laid off, that sucks, but it is happening all over the place right now. With the Obamacare regulations coming into play soon, employers are laying off full timers and hiring part timers so they don't have to provide insurance coverage!

    Take this idle time and explore yourself. Get into the gym regularly to take care of your body and to clear your mind of other distractions. Luckily for you, nurses will always be in demand somewhere, although it may require a change in locale to land a good spot somewhere. But you can always look at is an adventure!
