I've always loved my adrenaline filled job in a busy surgical ward but now feel I've worn myself out at it.
I'm on a 6 month sabbatical from my hospital following a very stressful time (my mother died of cancer, one of my brothers has been diagnosed with myeloma, my sister-in-law has ALL, no donor in sight) and I just had to get out of feeling surrounded by illness in my private and professional life, I was too scared of breaking down at work.
Am enjoying the tranquillity of leisure time and not getting up at 5am , but I know it's only temporary !
I know I'd like to work using my communication skills etc. but don't really know what direction I should be going..
Thankyou mefites for any insights
