Hi,

I work as a teacher and am contemplating working as a medical translator. I like my work as a teacher although I don't work full-time. I support myself some how. I was wondering what others do as work and if you work full-time?

Are you an English language teacher?
Must be nice to live where you do. Good for you. :)

I started full-time work again in 2018 after 7 years in recovery.
I enjoy my work now and am a good stable place in my career.

I work in healthcare messaging for a hospital - it is software dev.

I worked full time as an engineer up until March when the virus struck.

my mh has taken a serious dip through being off work.

I will be going back to work as soon as possible, one of my old workmates is a bookkeeper and I know a photographer beginning her career. The three of us want to start a graphic design/web development company. It should be interesting.

I quit my two jobs dramatically when suffering from delusions, but now I’m better again I’m studying full time.

Thank you all for sharing. I am in the midst of applying for an internship as a translator. I hope it works out! Please hang in there, all of you!
