I have been a Social Worker for almost 20 years. I am approaching 2 years of being cancer free and completed what was hopefully my last surgery about 7 months ago. During my treatment, I stopped providing direct patient care and was working in a role that involved reviewing medical charts. About 4 months ago took a position back with patients, thinking I was healthy enough for direct care. Now I am finding I no longer enjoy what I am doing and feeling complete compassion fatigue. I'm not sure if it was everything I went through with my own health or just working in healthcare in general right now, but I am looking to change careers. I have no idea where to start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
