I hate posting a subject line sometimes because I just want to come here to write lol. Well, I have found a career oppertunity that I'm going to go for. It's general transcription, I'm going to college to take some courses in order to get my foot in the door with this field. I really didn't want to take a medical trans or legal course because they are too long. And getting my associates is a big thing as well. There are a few companies out here that I can definately start working for after I finish school. I'm really just not sure if I'm going to get a job until I go to school. Which will be in 4mos. I feel like I just don't have the confidence to get out there and do something. With transcription I can work from home and not have to pay so much for daycare. I know that this will be a challenging thing to get into but I figured going to school for my associates would be just as challenging. I'm a clean slate and anybody can learn. I've also been sick for the last week with a cold from hell! So I've had some depressing days because just being sick can get you down. And sometimes I feel that I wish I didn't waste the last 3yrs of my life doing absolutely nothing to get somewhere. Because I feel that is where my lack of confidence comes in, I feel that my home is my comfort zone even though I have been miserable most of the time. One thing is for sure though, I am confident about going to school and getting into this field. Maybe it's because thats the only thing that really interest me. And I know that it will get me somewhere in life.
I've also been trying to be a support to my mom, her marriage isn't going very well, they have been married for 2yrs but have been together for 6. It's times like these that I wished we lived close so we could be there more for eachother. I just miss her alot because before I moved out here we lived only miles apart.....Anyway I know that there is a lot going on with the board. Sometimes I wish I could be more supportive to others here! wink

Hi Hope,

I think that it is great that you are going to school and will be able to work out of your home. That is wonderful. That is something that I wish I could do. Get a job over the internet or something like that.

You have been comfort to many on here. You give good advice and have helped people on different occasions. So don't sell yourself short.

I hope that you are having a wonderful day. You sound very happy and that makes me happy.

Hugs, Karen

Dear Hope,

Whoooo hoooooo. You will do really well with that course and look at it as a great opportunity.  You will feel good about yourself and learning is fun, hard work yes but still fun.

I have known several people that have gone this very same routed and do well at home transcription.  Many hospitals and clinics outsource their transcrition needs.

I am very proud of you and I knew you would work out something.  I am sorry your Mom is having a rough time so I will keep both of you in my prayers.

Always remember you are a winner.

Hugs galore,
