The irony of working for a Big Ol’ Hospital and 1) not having sick leave and 2) not being covered by its health insurance is hitting me full in the face today.
About an hour ago my eye began swelling for some reason (possibly an insect bite, I’m horrifyingly allergic to mosquitos, but SERIOUSLY BR. MOSQUITO? OF ALL THE EXPOSED SKIN ON MY BODY, MY EYELID LOOKED NUMMY?), and I’m trying to do the dollar cost analysis of staying at work with one eye swollen shut versus spending untold hours in Urgent Care and/or the emergency room and getting charged for taking up space.
