As of May 27, I will be leaving my current job.
It's a bit of a bittersweet thing. I used to really enjoy my job and my ability to help these physicians to help their pediatric patients. I was given opportunities to speak with various higher-ups about patient engagement and MedX.
Lately, the environment has changed greatly and I've been left feeling very torn.
I don't enjoy this job anymore and that, coupled with my never-ending fibromyalgia flare-up, was already making it hard to get up and get to work. Late night or early morning meetings didn't help the situation.
I've tried to stick it out for a while here, but it's becoming increasingly obvious that missing a day a week due to illness isn't making me very popular. There is a lot of frustration, for me and for others, at my absences lately.
I went from feeling very included to not having that anymore and it's rough, especially as I felt I was finally hitting a groove about three months ago.
C'est la vie, I suppose. I know I'm worth more than this, though.
I do not currently have another job lined up.
Normally, this would scare me, but T's aunt left us some money and I will be able to take some time off to try to get this fibro under control. I'm hoping to work part-time after a few weeks or even launch Chronic Sex as an official business.
I will be attending a few interesting conferences in the next several months, including presenting on sex with chronic illnesses at a few.
If you know anyone looking for a workaholic trying to reform herself, give me a holler!
In the meantime, expect to see more posts in June here, at Chronic Sex, on Medium, and at my official site.
