By the time this post is published, I will officially have left clinical practice behind me. For a variety of complex, emotional, and exhausting reasons, I have decided to permanently step away. One day it will be time to tell the story in more detail but that time has not yet come.
I’m not quite sure what happens next. New adventures await! There will be some travelling while I work out where I want to settle next and what income generating actives I might like to partake in. I do know that my writing will now become a major planned part of my day rather than being relegated to the cracks and corners left over in a busy week. I plan to continue to write blogs regularly. There are more papers from my PhD that have been begging to get out of my head and into print. And there’s a book idea that won’t leave me alone.
I’m planning on there being more time for family and friends, gardening, perhaps chickens, maybe a goat. And sewing, crafting, and choir singing. These are the things that add value and meaning to my life.
Stay tuned for news of further developments! In the meantime, subscribe to the blog so you will be notified when I publish new content. If you know of any great paid opportunities for a tired feminist ex-obstetrician who can teach, research, and write, let me know. What new changes and adventures is 2022 bringing you?
