Our first week after the changes at work

I think this was our first week after the big changes, but honestly it all blurs together.  Maybe it has been two...  It has been awful.  I'm working most days from 8 am to 6pm and having trouble keeping up - even with the new dragon software.  I'm pretty tired when home too, and get irritable and snappy.  Some days I feel like I am drowning in UTIs, pain management, depression, anxiety and doing physicals for people who want to get into a drug rehab program.  I do a lot of well woman physicals, STD checks, a prescription refills.  What I enjoy most about my job is meeting some very nice people (patients and coworkers), getting a good salary (although I've recently learned that I am underpaid for my area), and some of the perks (CME trips).  It is a drag that my family doesn't get health insurance :(.  Lately I wonder how long the good things about my job will be worth the bad, and whether or when I should look into my options in this area.

Sorry the changes are hard. That is never easy. The good always has to out weigh the bad. I hope that continues in your job.

That's too bad about not getting health insurance. That would probably prompt me to look around. Not that the grass is always greener. I hope things get better.
