    Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm brand new to this board, but I've been reading it for a while. There are some very good ideas here and I plan on catching up on some of your thoughts. I don't post a lot but I do read a lot. I work on a computer all day, medical transcription so I don't spend too much time on the computer when I come home. Anyway, Hi All.

    Hope you get the chance to check back with us soon. It must be tough working on the pc all day - then when you get home getting back on your pc (UGH) is the last thing you want to do - right? Well, when you can handle it ... there is lots of good info. here and a lot of kind & helpful people. I love the good clean salty air of the coast, remote beaches and lighthouses. I bet you do too. ;)

    Welcome to our board. I have been thinking of taking the medical transcription course. Do you work for an agency or free lance? Is it relatively easy to break into? It would seem like such a logical choice for people like us. I appreciate your answers.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi to Mikie and all, Gee you all give a nice big welcome. Yes, it does make a long day at the PC (especially today) but that's another story. Mikie, I work for a hospital in the central dictation department. We type everything from operative reports, History & Physicals and almost everything else. I took a course for year in medical assisting and secretarial, that was 22 years ago. I am still doing the same job, same office, same corner actually. I do enjoy it, its different all the time yet the same. After doing some "light duty" a couple of weeks and being on my feet, I really appreciate sitting most of the day, I do have a lot of leeway in getting up and down. If I had to I would type at home, the benefits such as hospitalization and meds are the icing on the cake in working for a hospital. Hope this helps a little.
