    I'm twenty three blessed with a Jew fro, but after these last three years in coding I see my hair falling out by the second over my book pages when reading! The Marine Corps will shave it though when I enlist!

    I dont find coding depressing quite the opposite. It is quite uplifting -

    You know just today I was studying the pratice exam because I'm taking the exam on November 15,2008 for the second time and I told myself I don't know if I want to continue to do coding. When I was in my class I loved it! To be honest it is really because I can't really code operative and postoperative reports correctly

    Thumbs up

    Well, I used to love it. That's when I did only OB/GYN. Now I work with General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, still do my OB/GYN and I've tried my hand in Pulmonology and a little Cardiology. Now I can say I enjoy it and am very interested in learning more!!!

    Hmmmmm, I'm wondering if your question is really asking if we are seeing a drop on our workload because of the economy. I was looking at my stat sheet yesterday and so far I would say no. I have just as many encounters coming across my desk. Also, I am still seeing people come in for what seems like no good reason. By the way, I love my job.
