'I've Had Enough!'

Yes, indeed. As of September of last year, I had enough! After 18 years in both retail and hospital pharmacy, I was done. The money and benefits were good, but the SYSTEM was broken! It wasn't really HEALTH care, it was DISEASE management. I dealt with sick people on a daily basis. Most simply wanted a magic bullet to help them manage symptoms. They wanted to feel better, but had no clue as to how they became sick. Concepts like diet, lifestyle, nutrition, etc. were hardly mentioned. In the hospital setting, I saw many of the same patients repeatedly admitted for recurring problems. Pharmaceuticals were just one component of the band aid approach to treating these patients. Ultimately, they would have to make some changes IF they truly wanted to get well. But I was handcuffed, i.e. not allowed to intervene with any advice as to lifestyle or nutrition. That would be a conflict with all those meds being doled out, covered by patients' health insurance plans.

Thankfully, I had kept my health and wellness business running all those years I worked in the health care sector. The residual income was a nice addition to my salary. But more importantly, it afforded me a platform to be a messenger of wellness. Seeds were planted during my time working for someone else. Now that I have retired early, the restraints are gone. It's time to reap the harvest!

And I'm having a blast. Referrals are coming to me at a steady pace. Many people truly want to be well and distance themselves from the conventional health care spiral. They simply need to be shown viable options. I have even been asked and encouraged to begin giving health and wellness seminars once again (I did these on a regular basis back in the 90s before my pharmacy days). I've got to get my mindset right, but it's looking like next month will be my first. I'm excited to say the least.

Looking back to last September when I officially left the hospital, there were doubts running through my mind as to whether I had made the right decision. Now, I know I have a decision that will impact far more lives in a positive way. I'm so thankful that 'I've had enough!'
