I was searching online and found an office mental health job as an LPN in my town. The only thing is it's full time. Days no weekend or holidays. I went ahead and applied. If I get an interview I can find out about it to see if it's the right fit. My first concern will be the stress level. I always liked office nursing quite a bit. Really depends on what kind of work it entails. Some things stress me more then others.

I sometimes apply for jobs, and then later on think it was a mistake, and i am not ready for it.

If you are called for interview, it is good practice, and you never know if it is a really good opportunity.

Once you get a paycheck at the end of the month, it can be sweet.

Thanks Burt! Interview won't hurt and I'm into psychology. Since I've had problems myself I can certainly relate to the pain people are going through.

Burt i know what you mean, wanting to work and being able are two different things.

Do you not have the job now?
I have been out of nursing for several years but I have 14 years experience. Things can change so quickly in the medical field. I'm very nervous about entering again.

And thank you BDU!
To be successful I probably would be better off taking it low with just two days to begin with. This job just sounded interesting.

I certainly understand. I used to be able to push pull lift and do that kind of work but I too have a bit of arthritis in my back and had major abdominal surgery. I just can't do that anymore for any length of time. Nor can I do 12 hr shifts. It's to long and that long on my feet will not work. Plus 8 hours of mind work is pushing it for me because of the intensity and I know you understand that. Office work is generally not so physical.
I do hope you find something else that works. If able and we kinda like it it does give us a sense of accomplishment. I tend to overthink ALOT so I'd keep busy.

Yes volunteer work can be good. I am trying to do volunteer work, and it could lead to something new.

I also applied to a job in my old profession, but honestly, I am a bit jaded by it all.

Something new and exciting would be cool.
