So I am back in Madison, WI now, closer to family. Have a new job here that’s going pretty well so far. BUT – when it rains, it pours. After I started this job here, I landed an interview for a DIABETES job here in town. Now I would never leave the job I just started, even for the diabetes job, but I figured since both were part time, I’d apply, and see if I could make both work.
I got an interview, I thought the interview went REALLY well, but no word yet and it’s been 2 weeks since the interview. I’m pretty sure I didn’t get the job. I am so sad!
My current career dream is to become a CDE, AND either a Physician’s Assistant, or Nurse Practitioner in Women’s Health, and work with women with diabetes through conception, pregnancy, post-partum, etc. Not sure how that’s ever going to happen, but as of now it’s the ultimate goal.
I also applied recently for a scholarship to the Diabetes Unconference. I did not get selected for a scholarship so I can’t afford to go to that… MAJOR bummer!
I plan on applying for a Children with Diabetes Friends for Life Conference scholarship when those are open, so maybe that will work out.
For now though, there’s a bunch of bummer stuff going on in my D world.
#DSMA tonight was good, talking about burn-out both with diabetes itself, and with social media / diabetes social media. Well, I’m kind of depressed about the diabetes things that haven’t gone my way recently. I wouldn’t say it’s burn-out, but more frustration and depression about wanting to do more, be more, live more, and not being able to.
More later. I’m going to try to start getting back into my blog as an outlet, and especially now that I’ve become more active with the weekly #DSMA chats.
