Thanks to all who replied..

Thanks for your advice.  I know I just need to search and search some more but sometimes I get soooo very down about the whole thing.. and to think that I left an MT position at a hospital near my home four years ago that I enjoyed but wanted/needed to go home to work.. Thing is.. about a year down the road, all their MTs went home to work for them--all making nice cash per line and benefits.. all local doctors.. waaahhhh.. I seem to make THE WORST choices..

 Guess I'll keep looking..  thanks again.

Thank you to all of you who replied!!


I really appreciate all of you for taking the time to respond... Being new to the business, I was wondering if I was just going crazy to be a little hurt by my boss' behavior. 

Thanks again, everyone!

I hadn't looked at the book very well...just got it today and I've been having a bad day. My son is sick and things have been rough around here. Thanks though...I got it figured out!
Thank you to everyone that replied!
I'm sure that he is going to be just fine. You know how it is when you get a dog, they feel like a child to you. I just worry a little, but he really is doing great. I can tell that he is happy. The first couple of days he was very lethargic and you could just tell by looking in his eyes that he didn't feel well. Now he has more energy and his eyes are brighter. His coat is shinier and feels soft compared to the *greasy* feeling it had before. He is great with my son, and has already become a part of this family after such a short time. I feel very lucky to have found such a great dog! Thanks to all of you for your kind words and advice. I'll let you know how Buster is doing after our next visit to the Vet next week.
THANK YOU to those that replied. sm

It seems that I need to have a serious discussion with my boyfriend.  I agree that if the children don't want to eat what we are eating then they can fix something for themselves.  I don't mind purchasing alternate food items every now and then for them, but that can become expensive.  I also feel that it teaches them that they can have whatever they want whenever they want no matter what.  I was raised that you didn't get your own "special" meal just because you didn't like what was being made for dinner.

Even though they are not my children, it is partly my money that is going into their picky little gullets.  I feel that I should be able to enjoy a meal instead of feeling sick to my stomach from eating the same old things all the time.  My boyfriend has different feelings about the matter.  He feels guilty if he doesn't do what they want.  It's really kind of scary sometimes how he babies them.  Like I said before, his daughter is 18 years old and is AFRAID to use the oven.  I can understand wanting your children to have the best and to be happy...and I can also understand how we, sometimes, as single parents can feel very guilty about things, but there comes a point when enough is enough! 

I thank goodness sometimes that we don't live together yet.  They live next door.  It's actually very nice this way for now.  I do love his children very much and I love him so very much, but there comes a time when children need to grow up a little and get out of that stage that everything is about them.  I raised my son in a very different manner.  Yes, he is spoiled, but not in such a way that he thinks the whole world revolves around him and everyone else is just supposed to fall in line.

I should say that they are great kids and are not snotty or rude.  They make excellent grades in school and they treat me like gold.  I don't want to sound like they are monsters.  I think that I will sit down with him and tell him how I feel about this, and tell him that if we can't make some kind of compromise about dinners my son and I will be eating at home from now on and will come over after dinner.  I am not going to keep contributing to the grocery bill for dinners if I can't have what I want to eat from time to time.  I'm hoping he will agree.   

thanks to those who replied
your answers helped me and confirmed what I had already been feeling. It's been a very, very difficult situation and you are right about his kids not having enough discipline. Thanks again.
Thanks to all who replied - nm
There was another post that I replied to and it
is gone.  I didn't say anything to warrant being deleted so don't know if someone else did, or they just got slap happy and deleted more than they intended. 
You might be in for a surprise considering he replied..
That was a joke, because nobody replied for a while.
The site can be addicting, but of course you can run it in the background. If you have the foghorn on you can hear when a bottle comes in. :o}
At least they replied to your email ...

They never even acknowledged receipt of my resume with over 20 years of experience in acute care.

But you replied to MY post
and called me a doubting Thomas because I doubted it could be done on 1 income.  Now you're going to act confused?
To person who replied about TRXinc OR.
You stated that the "owner is a lunatic".  I recall I left it to your discretion to elaborate on that, but YOU DIDN'T.  Okay, I admit, I'm freaking out a tad.  Please at least privately e-mail me. 
I replied back with the address to the
fraud department of my local police department.
Is the post you replied to directly above this one?
If not, the one you replied to may have been deleted. They can't control that. They delete one part and everything in response to it automatically goes with it. They can't leave responses hanging there when the one it was tacked onto was deleted.
Replied to wrong message. (nm)
Thanks to those who replied! *SM* for free BOS-2 e-book downloads!!
I want to thank all of you for the help. I did get through the testing, so keep your fingers crossed.

I found a website, but wasn't sure if I would be permitted to post it. However, if you will just Google AAMT Book of Style free download, several sites will come up. It's the BOS second edition. These are shareware sites so just use caution. HTH!
Thanks to all who replied to my Emachine question. For those who had a positive response, can I ask
Boss sent me a nasty email, I replied and proved she was wrong, and yet no apology. sm

This is not the first time -- she's the first to blast you if she thinks you didn't make your line count, work when you should, etc., but if she makes a mistake, she NEVER says "I'm sorry," or "I was wrong" ... nada!  Most of the time, I just blow it off.  The pay is great, the accounts good, and sufficient work, but other times, I wonder if it is worth it.  I suppose in today's job market, I should just be glad to be employed ... maybe I'm just greedy in also wanting to be treated with professionalism, respect, and courtesy. 

Not sure if I even have a point -- guess I just needed to vent a bit.  Thanks for "listening."   

Bunch of us replied to similar ? on Company board under DSG lines post..nm
oops, replied in the wrong place, please see my reply under the original message. nm
I replied this morning and was deleted. I asked if you're spending a lot of extra time on the ex
work.  If so, I see no reason why you can't charge her by the hour for what you do.  It could me maybe $100 a week insted of every 2.  I do think that is a rip-off and you're being taken for your generosity. 
Funny! Mine is almost as large, and I don't mind cleaning mine!
It's no problem at all.  Besides, I'll take lots of oodles of square footage any day of the week over living in a sardine can!
Mine isn't like that. Mine is 2. All are programmed different.
Mine are 10, 7, and 4.....sm
I get up early and get my work done by noon. If I have more that needs done I do it late at night after they go to bed. I have a very flexible schedule, so as long as the work is back in 24 hours it doesnt matter when I do it. Mine are all girls, so they play really nice together. My 10-year-old is pretty good at keeping the 4-year-old playing. When the two older ones are is school, my 4-year-old is pretty good at playing with her toys, computer or books until I am done. I stop occasionally to read to her or play with her, but I am usually done everyday at noon. For me personally, I would never use daycare. I would try to make it work with the little ones at home. I used to work in a very demanding hospital job doing insurance and billing. When I started work at home I knew I would never see another day care again! Good luck to you and hope you can find a way to get the little ones to stay at home with you!
not mine
I did not make that post
Yep, that's what mine is...
That "azul" thingy - think I'll take my computer, desk and chair to that island and sip a cold drink while I type....
should see mine!
Ours this time was 441!!!
mine is for $96 - but what for??? nm
You can have mine.
What a slap in the face! I will be returning mine with a nice little letter. They obviously think we are just a bunch of idiots and are just going to sit back and take their BS. I have had it.
Mine was $27 nm
Mine are up a bit too. NM
He's mine. Now get out of here.
Do you spend at least 2 hours doing your hair and make up in the hopes that he stops by your house? I didn't think so.
Mine does - up to 14 cpl for certain...
accounts.  I'm sure there must be others.  Our experience has been that there are still plenty of doctors/healthcare facilities who appreciate quality.  Yes, many simply want to save money.  Thankfully, some know money is not the most important factor.
Mine did for me
I worked for a company (not MQ) that used DQS and I only have dial-up available to me. I connect at 50.6 Kbps almost all of the time and never had a problem. Once the first dictation loaded, which took less than a minute, the rest would upload in the background while I was working so I never had to wait. Sound quality was always very good, but of course that can depend on your account.

I currently am working on the InScribe platform for a different company and it takes a little over a minute most of the time for my first dictation to load (so it is a little slower than DQS was for me) but after that there is no waiting, just like on DQS.

I have a really reliable ISP so very rarely get disconnects, etc.

HTH. :)
that's how I do mine, too...and they are

Also keep in mine...

While it is very true what the other poster said, you also need to take in to account how much you are getting paid per line. I get paid both ways, for two different jobs I work. If I were to make say $.09/gross line (based on 1" margins all around, Courier New 12 pt. font), then I would need to be paid approximately $.12/65 characters per line to be making near the same amount (this is just a rough estimate).

Me too. Mine is really bad in the a.m. - sm
The pain is not really in one area of my arm, but all over and achey, even going to my wrist sometimes. I absolutely cannot lift my arm over my head without excruciating pain. Heating pad helps me too. Mine actually started when I got this crazy idea to add weightlifting to my cardio regimen at the gym. Since I have bad knees from time to time, I am guessing this may be arthritis. I'm 38. Arthritis is very strong in my family.
Wow! Ask for mine too and keep it! :)
Was an original member when you paid by the MINUTE to use AOL in the early 90s. I think it lead to my divorce...

Mine too
I'm an IC and was fortunate enough to receive Christmas bonuses from three of my accounts this year.  I was more excited about being remembered than the money!  It is nice when they communicate with you other than in a monotone voice on a tape.
that is what I still use. Mine looks sm
awful but works great. I found a couple on E-bay and bought them for 4 bucks a piece but they are rebuilt and the keys are tighter. Actually I wanted the cords off of them because you can't get the cord anymore and mine had a crack in it. These are the cords the snap in and are not on permanently. I love the clickety clack keyboard and don't want to ever change. I have bought so many adapters, you can't imagine! LOL
mine is this now too:)
Why are you making a big deal about this?
mine too
of course this is my cup of cocoa since I haven't ever touched coffee. 
Almost all of mine say thank you, more so than the
American docs.
Anybody like their job? I like mine
I wish mine had. We'd all have been better off.
Actually I've always wished I was adopted and had nothing genetic in common with those freaks.
Not Mine!!!

Mine is a
He also just quit a high paying, benefit-loaded, pension-loving job in sales for Time Share Sales because of the hours. We have 5 kids and they are growing up WAY too fast for him to work 70 hrs a week. Pray for us...this is scary! I am tying to find a better paying MT job and maybe some benefits to make up the $ difference while he trains and gets used to a change!

Mine is 137. It used to be 146. Getting
