I have been working as a travel nurse the last two years. This year I have been working in the PNW. Currently I am just outside of Seattle. We have been traveling a lot! Canada, Illinois, Florida, Oregon, New Mexico, Colorado, Italy, Ireland..........I am sure I forgot some. My head is spinning just thinking about it
Next, I am working hard to start a new business. Some of you may have heard that Illinois is set to legalize recreational marijuana in 2020. And I want in! As a traveler and a nurse I have had a great deal of exposure to cannabis and I can see what is being done right, and where this industry is missing the mark. I feel there are so many benefits to using cannabis and we have only scratched the surface. I am working on developing my own line of edibles with people like me, and you in mind. I don't want to give away all my secrets, but if I am fortunate enough to be granted a license next year you will be hearing all about it. This is WAY outside my scope and all my time is going into research and development. Cross your fingers for me guys, this is a big hurdle to jump!
When I started this site it was with the hopes I would give it more attention then I actually have. But the good news is I AM BUSY LIVING, which means you can too. I have gotten more emails then I can keep up with. I am sorry, I know how it feels to be so lost and looking for hope. I feel immense guilt when I cant respond to every email I receive, but I am trying. Please find me on Instagram @RoamingRNandBen, I tend to uploads pics there a bit more and respond quicker.
As for my RA, I am doing pretty darn good. I had to change up my meds, there has definitely been disease progression. But not in a way that at all limits my life. I make adjustments and forge ahead. That is all we can do my friends, go with the flow. There is no other option. Be easy on yourself, rest when you need to, and know you are not alone.
Keep on keeping on my friends!
