That's a coincidence, your interest in medical writing--it is the field I have wanted to switch over to, leaving financial services. I live in Philadelphia and as you noted there is always a strong demand for writers and editors in the healthcare field.
My most interesting news, though, is that my husband has decided he wants to take up truckdriving again. (We are both from blue collar families so this is no great shocking thing, even though he has his associates in business.) I am all for it, since that is one field where the jobs are supposed to be plentiful over the next 10 years, and hopefully I can go back to part-time work once he has 2-3 years of experience. BTW, his dad was a class A truckdriver for many years, and then my husband did it for a few years in the early 90s. But he would have to re-establish himself again, starting with school.
I just hope he likes it once he is on the road for a week at a time (he wouldn't go for a job that required more than 4 nights away.) I'd probably practically live at my parents while he's away -- I need help with the 2 kids.
Anyway, it was good to hear from you. I'm still at the boring job. But trying to have fun!!!!!
