Believe me, if I had health insurance, I would not be working tonight. But I can't afford to take the time off with no pay, no work, and I cant afford to go to the doctor without having insurance either. I probably should make a serious effort to transfer to Ob or Inpatient or SOMETHING else, as working in the ER seems to just cause a cycle of being sick, working, being sick, etc.
But most of my coworkers seem to be sick too. We have all had colds, and I at least am on the second round of a cold in the last month. SOre throat, congestion, coughing. Grrrrr.
