In Reply to: Got this in my email this morning, thought I would share--sm - kps

As tears roll down my face and I sit here sobbing, I want to thank you for sharing this story.

Believe me, since my brother's recent passing (my only sibling) a few months ago, my life was really put into perspective and my goal is to let everyone I know how they have touched my life and how much I love them.

Even my Dad told me he loved for the second time that I remember in my whole life just a few months ago. Now, we both say it every time we see each other or speak to each other. That is a most precious gift to me. While my family was never affectionate, I knew they loved me and my mom & I were always close and said that to each other but having my Dad say this, well, I just can't describe the feelings. I really don't think he thought of saying it to tell you the truth, that he didn't realize it was so important for me to hear it until I got so sick, and I told him about how I only recalled him telling me he loved me once (before he had open heart surgery and was being wheeled to surgery).  I guess it just goes to show that people can change and do change - even at the age of 76! :D I love you too Daddy!

Thanks for sharing... sm

I have friends just starting out in MT (many still in school), and I think this is valuable information for them.  I've said the same thing to them all, that if you take this as seriously as you would any job you were doing in an office, devote your work time and attention to it, and do what is asked of you while trying to improve yourself, you will be able to succeed.  I have only been doing transcription for a few years, but I can see that I will be here for probably as long as transcription is around.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom...

Thanks for sharing
Yes...That's it! Thanks for sharing what you know. nm
WOW! Thanks for sharing!
I've been trying to build up my Google search links on surgical and radiology sites because I find it easier to Google than to flip through all my books. That one about covers it all!  Thanks again!
Thank you so much for sharing this
Thanks for sharing...

It appears that I am not alone then IF this is truly the cause of my symptoms. I have only been off of Nexium for three days and haven't noticed a significant difference but I know it may just take some more time to get back to where I use to be as I had been on Nexium since the first part of January and I have been terribly sick for several months. 

The doctors have all ruled out just about everything they can think of so won't it be ironic if Nexium is the cause of my sickness after ALL the testing I have gone through?!? I don't care, as long as I get my health back. :)

I think it would be best not to talk to the woman, because it would just escalate the tension and might get out of hand.

Just let your kids continue to play with them, and when the other kids ask you or your kids for anything, other than a drink of water, just politely remind them that your family has a policy against that.

However, I myself would probably invite them to share Kool-Aid or popsicles with my kids once or twice a week, invite them in for games and toys.

In my entire childhood and teen years, the only thing I ever borrowed from a friend or neighbor were Nancy Drew books, which I always returned as soon as I finished reading them.

We were taught not to ask for things from people, but I realize times have changed. Some kids are still taught that, but many are not.
thanks so much for sharing
I'm adding it to my favorites!
Thank you for sharing

Thank you for taking the time to share what experiences you have encountered with those with PKD. It really helps for me to hear what others have gone through and have more of an idea of what to expect.

Believe me I have been reading a lot and I think I have a pretty good basic understanding of it all and what to expect but still hearing or knowing of what others have experienced puts things in a different perspective I think too. I know each course is going to be very individual as everyone is different.

Before I was even found to have the PKD, despite my labs being quite normal except for a couple values, I was so deathly ill and I "knew" I was dying. I was so desperate in finding help. My family saw me wasting away and felt I had little time left until I stopped some of my Rx meds on my own out of desperation and the nausea subsided where I could eat again. It was the most horrible thing I endured for that long of a time. This leads me to believe that the laboratory values are not the end all and that I may be just more sensitive than some and now maybe I can convince the doctors to take me more seriously. When they didn't know yet what was wrong, of course, as a last resort they thought depression. :( I was not depressed (upset, angry, frustrated-YES!) I am a very positive, happy-go-lucky type of person, and that is just my nature but when you are too ill to eat only about 400-500 calories a day for many days for weeks, it takes it toll quickly.I LOVE to eat and I was not anorexic by choice, let me tell you. :)

Again, thank you so much. 

Thanks for sharing, I was one of those
who thought MySpace was just for teens to post X-rated pictures and pick up people. I may just look into it, it sounds like a good way to keep in touch. Is there a IM or chat, also? Or just blogs? Does everyone have to join to see your info or nonmembers can see it too? Thanks! :)
Thanks for sharing with us...
It sounds so beatiful and peaceful!! I'm glad you described it for us. I know I enjoyed reading all about it! Just wanted to say, also, that I have often taken note of your posts and how you seem to have a real handle on life and your business and MT. I get the impression that you have had some adversity in life to deal with and have been a strong enough person to come out on top. It's nice to hear that sometimes there is a silver lining somewhere if only a person knows where and how to look for it! Enjoy!!
LOL!! thanks for sharing! nm
Thanks for sharing that with everyone! (sm)
At first I thought you were going to say the person you wrote to brushed you off. Anyway, your post has renewed my resolve to keep bringing this issue to the attention of the public. I think the 60 Minutes TV show should seriously consider doing a story about the subject of offshored medical records, not only for the obvious reason of identity theft and loss of confidentiality, but also to bring to light that it has taken an entire white collar profession in this country from self-sufficiency to food stamps in just a few years.
Wow! ... Thanks for sharing this with us ...
and congratulations on your well-deserved success ...
Thank you so much for sharing your

experience!  Now I feel much more comfortable taking the plunge and calling them.  This will be great to not have to count my minutes anymore! 

Thanks for sharing that....
Until I had my granddaughter (3 years old) I would not have been able to relate to this LOL We watch this show often and I actually find myself getting into the show and plot, even if she falls asleep!
thanks for sharing
Thanks for sharing sm
There is an old saying, "Where there's a will, there's a way." You were very gracious to share, I hope it helps someone else. We MT's are very industrious. Thanks again! You are probably saving yourself from a DVT, just make sure you get up and walk once in awhile.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
I understand that unemployment wages are based on last quarter of earning and in this job, production has falled as the transition has taken place.

With regard to applying for jobs while on UI (unemployment insurance), is is correct that if a job comparable to the one laid off from is not available, a person does not have to take the job? In other works, I am FT with ins and top tier so I would want to move into a job similar and if unable to, collect UI until I do find one?

This sucks but I agree with the semi-paid summer off. The stress of this job has done a number on me and I could use some sleep. Downgrading my lifestyle will be necessary, of course, and a room mate.
Thank you for sharing....
I found the article very interesting. 
Thanks for sharing!! nm
WoW - thanks for sharing

Good resource.

Thanks for sharing that, cause that's what I'm thinking it must be. So
if you had to type each and every report from "scratch", no normals, do you think 200 to 250 lph is a ballpark figure you would hit??
I have no problem sharing nm
My gross earnings last year were right at $54,000. I work for a medium-size national, who is currently hiring but I cannot name because of past comments by previous employees and not wanting to start a flame. I get 9 cpl and have an incentive of more once min is me my minimum, I transcribe 275+ lines per hour, which is I think about average for experienced MTs on a good platform.
Thank you for sharing website
I don't know how anyone could forget.  My heart breaks yet again.
No, I don't mind sharing
Work for Transtech in Houston.
no cussing just sharing

a few reminders from the scriptures.  Did you see them?

bless you for sharing
we've all been in a mess a time or 2 in our lives nice to year about small miracles!!
I love it, thanks for sharing!
Glad we could help - sharing seems....sm

Sharing these types of stories seem to heal and help ALL of us.  Keep on keepin' on, sweetie!!!  You sound like you're doing FINE!!!

Thanks for sharing!! Loved them.
Great tip!! Thanks for sharing! nm
Thanks for sharing your creativity.
From one writer to another, I enjoyed your well written poem.  Check out www.boomerwomenspeak.com to possibly submit it!
Thanks for sharing your story! Know that you and your sm
family will not be alone in this endeavor. Will be praying for your little brother (we are the same age!), and let us hear the praise report when you return. God bless you.
Thanks for sharing! Very interesting
article. Now I just can't see straight from the snowflakes! My eyes are too old and tired!
Thanks for sharing, I can SO relate!!
Have a new account which is basically a breeze but for one ESL who is the toughest one I have ever had.  So it's nice to know somewhere in the world some other MT is also suppressing a scream!!  Hang in there! 
Very nice....Thanks for sharing.

No, just sharing what has worked for me.
If you don't want to know, continue in your 'shroom ways. No way I'd ever convince you to stop that.
Would you mind sharing which nat'l co. sm
You work for? Do you do VR also? I've been with Medquist for a long time, work about the same amount of hours you do, and I'm sure not making what you are. I'm doing almost 100% VR now, which I like, actually, but MQ just cut what they pay for that by another 10%...

You can reply to my e-mail if you'd rather not post on the board. Thank you!
Those were great! Thanks for sharing! LOL nm
