    AAPC: Back to School
    This is an interesting question. When I worked at a military treatment facility that rec'd many many injured soldiers, we as coders did get a bit down sometimes, coding all the injuries. We actually asked the chief of psych to talk with us and offer suggestions for coping. He was wonderful and loved that we thought to ask him. None of us were major depressed or anything, just it kind of gets to you some days, we all are human after all. Very rewarding experience coding GWOT trauma, and with our psych friend, it turned out to be a great meeting.

    I love it because I'm always learning. Maybe it's about codes themselves or medical conditions, etc. Keeps those brain cells active. Not every day is the same.
