    Thought I better say goodbye while I can still type.

    I don’t have any symptoms or anything, just feeling like death is imminent.

    It's hard not to get that "end of days" vibe.

    I've burned all of my PTO this past week and a half, but I work at a hospital and can't stay away forever. I've been shaking every day and it's currently noon and I've been up since yesterday. I think I'm going to cry for a bit after finally logging off. If I could stand the taste of alcohol I would have drank myself to death by now. Other than that, doing okay. Hope my parents don't die.

    A couple friends of mine are working at hospitals and dealing with COVID-19. They've both told me that the hardest part is, so often, they can do nothing. Until the tests come back, the suffering patients in medical limbo. You cant' actually treat until you have a diagnosis, but you have to otherwise care for them as if they had a positive diagnosis.

    Two weeks ago, another friend's close co-worker had a FALSE POSITIVE COVID-19 test, with the scarcity of tests meaning it took awhile to get COVID-19 mostly ruled out. Due to this, he burned a day at Beaumont to get tested. Fortunately, he's negative, but now he's withdrawn and freaked and I can't just go over and try and cheer him up.

    Where I work can't decide whether to pretend to be business as usual, or not. Every deadline, promise, and projection that's weeks out is bullshit. I had to tell someone that no, people won't bet going into COVID-19 evacuated facilities just because they're really curious about something minor. At least the big boss has some empathy.

    Gonna be working from home! Thankfully I don't do any patient care, so there's no need for me to be physically present at the hospital. Things are looking up for my fam's health. Hope everyone here is able to stay safe.




    I would delete that post of mine up there if I still could.
