Yes and no - I started at 18 and am still going strong at 57. In the meantime, have worked in every imaginable setting of medicine, clinics, hospitals, etc. and have owned my own transcription service for 20+ years.
However, the overuse wear-and-tear on my body and the sad wage that they pay for my 'expertise' makes me look back over it and go 'what?'
The amount of strain on one's body (and brain) to be a medical transcriptionist in my humble opinion is staggering - and the compensation does not seem equitable especially the older I get.
All this said, to HAVE a job in this day and age, you would have to be insane to complain about it! It is a good job - it is just a very hard and tedious job that is hard for an active sort like me to do day in and day out. My problem I believe is that I started at 18 and the first time I looked up from the rat race, I was going on 57!
