New Doc

Saw the new doc today- changing lots of meds. Found out that the ataxia in my hands is something that I am going to have to live with- not cool- but it is a choice between that or headaches- right now I am choosing the ataxia. Not sure how my clinical supervisor is going to feel about that or my coworkers for that matter will agree with that- but I am the one who has to live with it not them. Yes they are effected by my decision- as I can't go on deliveries with the lack of sensation in my hands- but at least I am at work with no headaches. Not a great trade off- but one that is going to have to do- so we'll see if it is acceptable for them, if not I guess I will be looking elsewhere for a job sooner than I had expected to be doing so.

Glad the headaches are staying away! Maybe your coworkers will surprise you and be supportive and understanding. Bummer you won't be able to go to any deliveries -- those are exciting! When I job shadowed at a local NICU I was only able to see the room adjacent to the OR where the NICU staff work with wee ones. It was so impressively organized. What an amazing thing it must be to actually work there! Cool!
