So it’s been almost a year since I last wrote a post on here. Unfortunately, nothing much has changed. I am still living in Indiana, working on the mother / baby unit at a local hospital.
I have had a couple interviews for endocrine clinic / office / diabetes jobs, but nothing played out.
One of the interviews went super well, but they were looking for more an endocrine nurse for hormone therapies, growth hormones, testosterone injections than for a diabetes nurse, and the manager felt that I wouldn’t be happy in that position not being very involved with diabetes care – BOO!
I have been getting more involved with a local Adults with Type 1 group here in Indy, and that’s great, but I’m still having a hard time not feeling so defeated about NOTHING happening with the diabetes jobs thing.
I have started another blog that essentially will be my “Part-Time Caregivers’ Guide to Kids with Type 1 Diabetes”. This way, I get it OUT THERE, it’s FREE, and there’s the potential for an interactive element to it where people can comment, ask questions, etc. instead of something printed on paper where you can’t ask questions and get a response back.
This blog is in its infancy right now, and hopefully in the next week or so I will really get it going. For now, it’s an intro. and not much more since most of the files I need to upload are on my computer at home, and I’m not there at the moment.
Anyway, the new blog is: http://www.caregiversguidetotype1diabetes.wordpress.com
Please feel free to share this with people you know that night have a use for it, and as always, comments, recommendations, questions, edits are very welcome.
Stay tuned… more to come!
