What's Going On Here?I've been "gone" for a little bit because of some changes in my life. Well, actually just one big change. I'm no longer working at the jail and have started a position in psych. Why I'm no longer working at the jail took me about two weeks to get over and I guess I'm just not going to get into that here, which is why I haven't been posting. (I will let you know that although it wasn't something I did, that doesn't help me feel any less like I could have done something differently or that I'm any less of a failure. I'm really hard on myself. Really.)
I feel like I'm in a whirlwind. What happened to my ideas of working in the ED or CCU? I do really enjoy those units, but when I had to look for something new, I called a psych position I interviewed at before I was hired at the jail. It had looked like they were going to offer me a job at the interview, but I ended up taking the jail position first. When I called her up, she remembered me well and asked me to come down to discuss terms (less than the county, but more then the hospital!). I needed the transition to be easy / pain free / worry free and this was it. So now I'm in psych.
For about a year now I've been studying and taking courses in EFT. I know it's still a new therapy/modality/treatment/whatever you like to call it, but go take a look at it. Out of the 20 or so people I've used it on, all of them have been "one minute wonders" - It's amazing! I'm finishing up my level 2 training now and am planning on going to the NY area in May to take a level 3 course. I haven't mentioned it before because I wanted to continue studying, using, and getting a feel for it. You can download information from the website (free!) on how to do it yourself. Please contact me and let me know if you're interested in this. My email is in my profile.
I think I'll enjoy psych. I know I won't be able to use EFT at work without discussing it in depth with the providers and my manager and getting their OK - that's much further down the road. Right now I just want to go to work and get used to it and try to reach that point where I feel confident and comfortable with what I am doing, and I know that may take a while.
