I am a 45 year old year old woman who was working as a nurse wgen I got injured on the job when I was crushed by a 350 pound woman. Four of my discs were crushed and I required 8 back and two neck surgeries to repair. That was in 1996 and it has taken me this long to return to work. I cannot nurse anymore but I crosstrained into the world of Medical Transcription to assist me with my medical bills. I passed the course with a 4.0 average. I also spent nine years Active duty service in the U.S. Army as a Paramedic, Administrative Assistant and Truck Driver of all things. I love to fish and camp and love watching boxing, and Mixed Martial Arts, and football on TV.
