Here are my issues:
I am an inpatient registered nurse, was working 36hrs/wk, 7p-7a overnights.
Diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative breast cancer at 26 weeks pregnant in June 2018.
Worked in an admin role as an accommodation until September.
Have been out of work since September 2018 for the delivery of my daughter and to finish treatment.
Now on oral chemo until August.
Just cannot deal with the stress of bedside nursing and having to deal with being able to take care of my patients appropriately after my diagnosis.
Looking for a new job, possibly in pharma/biotech/administration.
Also in the process of applying for ssdi since I've been out of work so long.
Will need to find daycare for my daughter if I work full time. That was not my original plan or budgeted for, since I was working the overnight shift only 3 days/wk.
Just looking for some guidance.
Do I wait until I finish my chemo?
I haven't even looked for daycares in a real way, but the ones I've talked to have waitlists.
I'm feeling pretty lost and just want to make sure whatever I do is strategic and is the best choice for my family.
