LOL, I am with you Don, I thought we had a new thread on GI issues or maybe someone was going to give clues on how to pass up the pump in protest to the rising gas costs.

Welcome, Christy! Your thread is definitely an eye catcher. I am not an anesthetist either. I am a nurse practitioner. I have been a nurse for 36 yrs, I worked in the ICU prior to getting my NP. I am like dirt. I have been around= have worked pediatrics, geriatrics, med surg, womens surgical, oncology, hospice, telemetry, ICU, Occupational medicine and family practice/cardiology. I am currently working full time in a walk in clinic and part time with a gastroenterologist.

I am fortunate to have a lot of variety in my work. Full time day job: Intensive Case Manager for the severe, persistent mentally ill. Do everything I can to keep my clients healthy and well and out of the hospital. Often while riding around with my clients I'll have fresh veggies in the van with me and share with my clients. Some of them never had red peppers before meeting me and are pleasantly surprised over how GOOD they taste! The majority of my clients are of the fast food, highly processed stuff diet and know very little about home-cooking.

Additionally I have a part time private practice where I am a more traditional therapist.

I enjoy commuting to work on my bike when the weather is good (18 mile round trip if I don't take any pleasant "detours" on the way home). I enjoy going to the fitness center when the weather is poor. Finally jumped into Spinning classes there earlier this year. I have a push reel mower for dealing with my lawns...quiet so I can enjoy my mp3 player while mowing! Our local SparkTeam has many who are doing a local 5K, 1/2 and full Marathon next weekend so I've bitten the bullet and agreed to do my 1st official 5K...running is NOT my thing, but I can jog a 5K. We'll see if the "runner's high" bug ever bites...lol!

Don,
What do you love best about your job? How do you balance your job and life? How do you work in exercise?

Hey, great to have you joining our SparkTeam!

Not an anesthesthist, but a clinical social worker...seems I remember there were some anesthesthists around though...

Don

PS...And here I thought we had a new thread on flatulence...lol!
