Things are good with me
The new job is great, I work 9-5, I earn more money and I work with genuinely nice people who don't backstab behind each others backs. No more 12 hour shifts, no more getting pulled into the bosses office to get asked about the latest bit of nonsense she overheard. Best of all, I know what I am working, when I am working and that I will be home on time for the most part.
I passed my training in record time so I am quite well thought of in the office which makes such a change, people are actually nice to me and maybe even better than that they say nice things about me to other people. I got a message from an old friend who happens to be friends with one of my seniors in work to say that she had said nice things about me.
Oh I also get lots of presents, I am always coming home with cards or chocolates for doing a good job. and I actually have benefits! (this is not common in the UK since we have free healthcare) I have private health care, private GP, private physio, a discount club and a decent pension. I can also sell my unused annual leave.
Leaving the NHS was hard for me, but there is no doubt in my mind that I have done the right thing. I am so much happier already.
