Now for 2007, they are planning to start sending 20% of our local plant's work overseas. Twenty percent of my little town's factory workers from this place will be out of a job. This is just the start.

No, I just was finished with my break and had to
get back to work. VPN is not connecting and I'm on hold with tech support.

There are a few things that would make me leave: A really harsh line rate cut for the same work; being forced to be an employee with a set schedule are two reasons that come to mind immediately.
OMG! Just finished listening to a doc with the -
next thing to laryngitis!  What a treat that was!
Finally finished, no dead air.

Just finished. Took an hour. No blanks. Going to
and drink a beer lol
36+ years. I wish I had finished my Masters. sm
The field is changing. I would never recommend it.  I do not see a bright future. 
Just Finished Treatment for Sciatica

I was diagnosed with sciatica/piriformis syndrome about a month ago. My physiatrist sent me to physical therapy for Graston therapy and iontophoresis. I was to the point where I had to sleep in my recliner with a heating pad on my hip. Of course, this is the result of sitting for too long......a battle wound common to the medical transcriptionist.

The Graston therapy is pretty painful and you really wonder how it could possibly help. The iontophoresis consisted of a patch with two large circular pads connected by an electrode. The pads are soaked with dexamethasone. The patch is then stuck to the butt for 24 hours. It's painless, except I pulled off a couple of layers of skin when I removed them. I had this done about 5-6 different times over a three-week period. I was also taught some gentle stretches to stretch these muscles, which I haven't been too diligent about doing.

Bottom line is that I completed my PT about two weeks ago and I haven't had any pain since then. I hope you get some relief for your condition. I know how very painful it can be.


Just finished 150 minutes today
Still have 30 to go. 
Just finished jury duty....
Ended up getting almost as much reimbursement for jury duty as I would have working, when mileage was figured in. Only had to be there 2 days, so it wasn't a hardship. Met some interesting people and was overall a positive experience. I was VERY reluctant, but was glad I did it.
My SIL finished a course at a local college

She got a job on-site and could be sent home, but she has decided to cross-train for a management position.  If she takes it, the salary is $65,000.00 per year.  So tell me there isn't money in this business.  She just finished her course!!! 

Wait. I misunderstood. MS4 = student, a Mr. - R4 = MD, but not finished SM
with residency in his specialty.
My son just finished is enlistment..best thing that every happened to him..I sent them my son..they
Do they hire people that haven't finished their MT course yet?
I'd like to know what kind of test they give people, folks who have barely even started the transcription portion of their MT course, yet they're being hired as MTs. Gives us all a bad name.
I just finished training, which I thought was GREAT! sm
The platform is EXText, although I think they have others. I like the way they seem better organized than other companies I've tried. I'll let you know about the 2-week honeymoon period whether the "marriage" will last or not!
I do the same thing. Then when the report is finished, I scan back through
the whole report to make sure I didn't leave any stop code markers behind, and listen to each blank once again.

A nice sunny room just for me in our finished lower level. Love my cocoon room.
POLL - Do you proof as you go or proof when finished? sm

I proof after, but would love to proof during.  I'm working on it.  I'm curious as to what percentage of MTs proof as they go or proof at the end?

Thx for responding.

oops.. I mean 68 not 80! nm
I meant to say got, not good - it's been a long day. 
Sorry forgot my email. MsBeth1105@AOL.com
Mississippi - I never could spell it right!
I thought you all were talking about not being able to volunteer until you registered with the Red Cross.  I was just pointing out that the Astrodome is desperate for volunteers.

That was supposed to be "plasma" not what is there.  It should be plasma perox


Oops KEEP on keeping on! Sorry up til after 1:00 a.m. working and apparently still asleep.♦
Acute care to be known as Medical Records consisting of the above.

See I told you I was tired.

I meant to say, what is the going rate for EDITING of VR reports .... so sorry! 

OOPS - should be its!
ROFL ... No kidding, how that guy and I understood each other is STILL a mystery to me LOL
...and sorry about the java smiley wigginess
That is supposed to be 'see ABOVE posts.'
Oops guess I am a little tired meant America and not American.
oops, that should be

oops..should have been *here*

You are SO right -- do you believe I never visualized her in an apartment that was anything but covered in SNOW?  Just goes to show you how much I am able to relate to a sunny clime and take vacations there. (Not much.)  So Jodi, by all means, pay heed to the above poster -- who brought me back to the entire United States instead of the cold northeast where I was. 


DUH on my part.  No, he was out at the bars that night (not unusually!!!) and came to the house about 3 a.m.  I said you cannot stay here!!!  (My husband was already gone).  He said can't I just go to sleep?  I said nope, not here!  He said he was going to sleep in his car and I said fine.  I haven't seen him since.  I guess I should have filled you in on that part also. 


As to him getting something out of this, I totally agree that would make sense.  I did talk to his sister about this (as this is something new for us in our 4 marraige) and she says that he has always been like that, wanting to help people out and having a hard time saying no (which that part I have seen).  I don't know.  I asked if they had "something going on" (which I was kidding, that would be a TOTAL SHOCK!!!) and that didn't make him too happy!!  Thank you guys again for all the support.  I truly feel like I am making the right decision and If my husband is going to stick up for a bum, then he is not the man I thought he was and I will be fine!!

I said I let my CMT expire after almost 10 years, actually it was almost 20 years. Oh well, the result is the same.
Oops!! Sorry! Can you believe I never
looked at that board as I thought it was those looking for work? ha!! Well, one thing for sure is that she shouldn't post on this board, right? Live and learn!! Think I'm gonna go browse job seekers!
That should have been "paperclip"
I had a doc leave his dictating phone on, while he left the room, in the surgeon's lounge. I heard one very handsome, young doc tell the other docs that when he rubs Ben Gay on his 'boys', he goes crazy! I couldn't even look at the guy after that one !
I didn't mean previous emails. I meant previous posting!!!! Geesh. It's been a long day for me!
I meant "thread," not "threat!"  Hee-hee!  The supervisor didnt start a threat; she started a thread on the forum. 
I forgot to change my name from my last post. This topic is confusing, but not very sad!!
Oops, should be MQ, Not MA.
Oops, I don't know what I did to get that twice, but
you want to convert text to table on the Table menu.
