New Job = New Me?

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I start a new job tomorrow. I am nervous and excited at the same time. The thought of not only meeting new people, but managing new people makes me a bit self conscious.

Friday was my last day at a job that I had held for nine years. As the Controller for a manufacturing company I handled all of the accounting and human resource functions for the first seven years. I was finally given some help in the last year and a half. I loved my job, but the stress of the responsibilities and some of the other members of the management team were taking their toll on my emotional and physical health.

I will be performing the same duties, with the title of Controller/HR Manager but I will have an adequate staff of employees and a better work atmosphere. I have decided that this is the perfect opportunity to not only start a new job, but to really start working on a new me. Quite frankly, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!

I actually took the first step two weeks ago by going to an Endocrinologist (I took me 3 months to get in). I have had an under active thyroid for about 16 years. On top of that, I have chronic EBV, which cause extreme exhaustion, a low grade fever and my glands to swell if I let myself become run down. I went for blood work this past Tuesday and am anxiously awaiting the results. I know it sounds terrible, but I actually hope they find something else wrong. Not horribly wrong, but something that can be treated like a vitamin deficiency or a need to adjust my medication. Any changes that can be made that will make me feel better and have more energy, I am all for!

But for now, I am going to concentrate on what I can do to feel better and view tomorrow as a new beginning.
