Best of luck to you as well!

Interesting how people can see things so differently. I see my new profession as a way of helping animals get well and being kind to them.

I hated MT and am so glad to finally be out of that profession that I found to be way too solitary as well as unfulfilling. You, on the other hand, see it in a different way and enjoy it.

Very cool how we both found our perfect fit!

Good luck. See what luck they're having on the
If only we were that luck!!
The web-based email progam SUCKS!!  but no, I'm not saying I hate MQ....in fact, I love working for MQ.  I'm simply saying the new email program sucks and I wish they'd never started it!
Wish I had that luck
Have had them since September and have been on the phone with them about 6 times since. Either my Outlook has errors or no internet and sometimes both. Each time they ended up having to assign me a new ISP #. I had Adelphia and switched to save a few bucks. Seriously considering going back as Adelphia is the only other DSL in my area.
No such luck...

The tech support guy at the MT office attempted to help me 2 days ago, but he couldn't figure it out either.  He was the one that suggested the system restore.  I am quite frustrated at this point to say the least.

As I said, best of luck to you! sm
You are fortunate and you know it.  You are blessed.  Have a great day!
Thanks...I really did luck out!
I wish you the best of luck. sm
It is not easy going it alone. Please don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it. I am praying for your peace, as well. Let us all know how things are going. Take care of yourself.
Best of Luck
There are so many great people here...we are your support system, so use it if you need to. PLEASE. Are you taking a laptop so you can stay in touch?

I Wish You Luck
I'm sending good wishes and prayers for you that everything works out. I'm sorry you don't have the support you need within your own family, but you have the support of people on MTStars
Not having luck
I appreciate hearing that, but I have been told by recruiters that I would probably only be able to do clinic work aside from ER without further training. I have a few discharge summaries with OPS notes that did include much unfamiliar terminology, and I had to leave blanks. If the dictators would speak clearly, I could just look it up, but that's a dream that won't come true LOL!
Did you have any luck?? nm
I wish I had such luck as you. nm
Everyone wish me luck, getting rid of AT&T
As of this morning, have signed up everything (except cell cause Charter does not carry) with someone other than the nickel and dimer, AT&T. I wrote them an email yesterday and do you think I got an answer? No. I am told their internet is much faster than what I have been used to and keeping fingers crossed. You know sometimes it is hard to change because you do not want to mess up and jump out of the frying pan into the fire. The issue of telling me at the first place I had to have land phone - even though I could not use- they would charge me a nomimal fee- so I could have my internet just sucks big time. That is the end for me. Getting the new provider hooked up 12/31 - just in time for the new year.
Best of luck to you. sm
Looking back 20 years that is how we screwed up - going home to work.  I would jump at the chance to make what I made with bennies 20 years ago and no "middle man" involved.  Good Luck!
No luck with BBB
I filed a complaint with the BBB last year when I didn't receive payment from Four Seasons Transcription as an IC. They can't help. Best thing is to either proceed to small claims court or hire an attorney. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of choices. I went to small claims court and got resolution. I would start there.
Luck?--Please! SM
That 11 cents includes incentive pay for high line production and requires this level of production over a week's period.

You know, working good and steady at a real job, which this is, just isn't punishment for many of us.

AND, a big plus of production pay is that you're actually paid more for working more. I spent years on a set wage where slugs slopping along through their shifts took home as much as those of us who were doing an excellent job because we couldn't stand to do anything else. And everyone's wages were relatively low, reflecting all that time so many spent spent chatting and goofing off. Now I'm paid a lot more equitably for the work I do. As are many of the complainers on this forum. (Those with genuine problems not related to laziness not included.)

Anyone ever have luck..,. sm

just sending out their resume with a letter to various doctors/clinics?  I have a lot of experience in, and enjoy doing, podiatry work but it doesn't seem to be something a lot of big MTSOs are looking for.  I can do the other work, but I am able to get much higher production doing Podiatry. 

Anyone have luck going about it this way? 

Anyone know any companies looking for someone with Podiatry experience?



Good luck. We each do what is best for us. nm

Good luck!
I used to be on MedRite with MQ-- loved it and it was SO easy-- then they switched to DocQScribe.  I haven't been able to make my line counts any more like I used to.  I work much longer and much harder and wish MedRite was back.  The other night, I had to a split job-- the lovely doctor batched three preop H & Ps.  I got the first two OK, then the last one never came to me.  I had to call the office, girl there said I "needed to call the techs"-- which I did.  I was on "ignore" for 35 minutes (I timed it) before a real person answered the phone-- only to be told that he couldn't do anything and I had to call the office.  Another call to the office-- the girl said she got a "system error" and still couldn't give it back to me.  Now if that would have been MedRite, I could have just gone back to the job myself and retrieved it and had it finished and over with.  But I guess that's PROGRESS.
Good luck

I have been in many hurricaines, living on the east coast, but nothing like Katrina.  Good luck to you. 

You're welcome. Best of luck.
Take care
I just sent it. Good luck!

Good luck!
I wish you luck because having a baby and getting to stay at home with it is very rewarding.

In my opinion, having the experience of working at a hospital is definitely in your best interest. If I were you, you could go to the local job seeker's board here or go to MTjobs.com and apply.

You will do fine!

Best of luck to you and the baby!

Sorry about your luck. He was banned!!!

Best of luck to you, my friend!
Can't go wrong if you're educated.
Luck isn't all that will be needed if going
What do you think, management posting again because they are so desperate for help???
I agree with everyone else. TAKE IT and best of luck to you (nm)
Good luck!
We have a lot of drama in my family also, so I totally feel for you there. Ironically, the holidays seemed to be the only time everyone was nice to each other when we were younger. Now, we all live so far apart we are lucky to get together once a year. We are all so different!
Good luck with 10 cpl...sm

In the last three years going through the hiring process twice I have never seen more than 8 cpl with five years experience.  I wish 10 cpl, but you just don't see it.  If you are acute care you may get more, but I do clinic work. 

Good luck. sm

Wal Mart knows what it is doing. They are very generous with donations to local communities and the local governments eat it right up.

As I posted above, our local Wal Mart, which was obviously thriving, just had to move across town to open one of those obscene Super Wal Marts and built it directly behind Kmart and a large supermarket.  Kmart  and the supermarket are hanging in there, but I don't really see it lasting much longer.

I used to go to the old Wal Mart for office supplies, but I'll pay the extra buck or two now.

Just the way the store layout goes ought to tell you something. If you want to go in and grab some food and you need dog food, cat food or shampoo too, you need to walk all the way to the other end of the enormous place, passing all the "bargains" in between.

Like I said, they know what they're doing. The sad part is that the majority of the general public actually want a Wal Mart.

Good thing is that when our Super Wally World first opened there were major traffic jams and no parking spaces, but even during the holidays the hub bub had died down considerably and you could get in and out of there in a jiffy.

Okay, I admit I went there at Christmas. It was the only place in the state that had any Q20's left.

Well, just an update - no luck still
I tried numerous adware/spyware programs until I found one that actually detected DealHelper in my computer.  I pulled out the old credit card and bought the dang thing and one would assume it would have deleted it during the scan but nope still there.  It is listed under my programs in add/delete programs taking up 2292 MB of space and every time I try to uninstall it it says "Installation Log File Not Found" and the title of the window says "Ghost Uninstaller".  I am admittedly ignorant about these things but I currently have 3 or 4 programs on my computer for spyware/adware cleaning now and nothing is removing it.  Just a word of warning to others I suppose that this is a nasty adware program - it self replicates obviously and I have no idea where i got it   Thanks for all the advice though...30.00 poorer and probably 10 hours of my life I'll never get back working on this crap.  Yikes!
Thanks! Good luck with yours too!
See a pain management specialist if you can. They are right up there with God in my book! Again, good luck Laurie. I have to take my meds and get to bed. Tomorrow is another day.... Nice chatting with you. How is the work in Seattle?
Good luck

I have no real advice as I have the same problem. You would think our hands would get hot as it seems they are busy.  It must be something about the rest of our arm staying still. 

I had DeQuervains about 10 years ago. and occasionally get tendinitis in my thumb when I am sewing a lot.  I have had hip joint achiness (maybe bursitis? who knows) from time to time since 1990.  Doing MT 35-40 hrs per week is probably not the best idea for me in light of all of this.  I'm fairly new to it and think this will be a temporary career for me. I thought sedentary work would be easy on my body - wrong!  I think my body needs variety.  I'm only 35 and between the tendon/synovial/joint problems and the Raynauds, I feel much older than 35 if I don't take care of myself physically. Right now as a matter of fact, my right wrist is starting to ache on the ulnar side and I have logged only 27 hours so far this week. Time for some Aleve.

Hope your hand feels better soon.

Good luck to you too!

To finishing up your BSN!

good luck to you!!

That sounds great, good luck to you!  That has been one concern of mine too for MT'ing solely as a career, the uncertainties of the futuring of MT'ing.  The different possibilites of nursing are very appealing. I have thought about becoming a NP eventually too, as well as what I mentioned earlier, doing some operating room nursing or possibly nursing research, I really like all the different growth opportunites and possibilites of nursing. Email me too anytime!

Good Luck to You too!

Best of luck to you, no matter what. sm
The smaller MTSOs are really struggling now with the offshoring going on.  I can only pray that changes.  My daughter has been an MT for 12 years.  She has two children, 9 and 17.  Two years ago she started pursuing a criminal justice degree and will work as a victim's advocate when she is done, which will be two more years. I am so glad she got out of this field.  No matter what, though, as I said, best of luck to you!
Your ad looks fine. Best of luck to you! nm
Not sure - maybe. Good luck with that. nm
You're in luck . . .
It is $29.00 plus shipping . . . I waited a week for mine, but now I wish I had at least paid for 2nd Day Air. Check the link above my first post (tried to put it in the original post but did not work).
Good Luck! I have never been able to
get my dos programs to work together under XP. I keep an old windows 98S# machine just for this reason. Has to do with EMS memory (that someone posted info about). I didn't want to go fooling around with the bios stuff, and the tech at work couldn't get it to work with the normal changes to the system that are "supposed" to make it work.
Good luck!
Make sure that whatever you charge is enough so that it's worth your time.  If you will have to spend considerable time doing things like looking up a doctor's address on a regular basis, that's something that isn't reflected in your actual line count, but can really cut into it.  Ask a lot of questions and get things in writing.
Good luck

Good luck, I admire what you are doing, it is hard to bite the bullet.  But it is easy to get into these situations.  It was so hard for me to do the bankruptcy but I also had to cover myself and my future.  But though I was advised to do the Chapter 7 and wipe everything out, I chose the 13 so I could pay something to everyone.  Then they can go after my ex for the rest.  Again, good for you. 


Good luck...

If you can get through the two-week induction, you'll be fine, and you'll find within three to four days that you are NOT hungry, NOR do you crave carbs either!  Center your meals around meat and add healthy veggies and salads.  Oh, another thing I ate, which I love, is sliced tomatoes, but you have to watch those a bit while on induction. 

You WILL be amazed how quickly the weight falls off and how GREAT you feel and how much ENERGY you have.  You'll also love it when you see that the diet lowers your cholesterol.

Take a large leaf of romaine lettuce and flatten it out - layer it with mayo, meat, cheese slices, tomoatoe slices, onion and roll up.  Trust me, you'll never miss the bread. 

You're going to love the fact that you don't feel bloated any longer either!

If you drink alcholic beverages, you'll have to cut out the juice mixes as they're very high in carbs. I started to drink vodka and water on the rocks or a glass of red wine after induction.

After induction, get bags of walnuts, pecans, and almonds and store them in your freezer to keep them fresh and munch on a few of them throughout the day.  Very heart healthy and high in minerals/vitamins.

If you have not already done so, Get the Atkins Book.  It is very motivating and interesting to read how all foods work in conjunction with one another - how they affect sugar/ heart, etc.  Also, the book is chocked full of great recipes.

Oh, another treat you can have, which I dearly love, is Coconut Macaroons.  You'll have to get the unsweetened coconut and use splenda instead of sugar, but they are soooo delicious.

Write back and let me know how you're doing on your diet.  I know you're goimg to be very happy with yourself. 


Good luck to you!
Sorry to hear that. I wish you luck.
Man, so sorry about the trolls. Best of luck with this!

Good luck to you!
Good Luck
Good luck getting them to slow down.  I have a rad doc that goes so fast that he does not wait for the recorder to start before he starts speaking, thus, I get no name or partial name and have to take time to try to find out who the patient is.  The more I ask to slow down or wait for the recorder, the worse it gets.
