I lied. I lied really, really, badly.
I applied for two new jobs that popped up. One is for "practice coder" which is a beginning coding position which actually asks for the certification I have, which is a CCA (certified coder associate.) Normally, that certification is not really good enough (so I've learned) so when I saw this, I decided to just do it. The other position is for "release of information specialist" which I'm sure has something to do with releasing clinicals to insurance companies to obtain auths; quite similar I think to what I do now, but we'll see. I said to Mr. R, "What if I get it? What do I do?" but I guess we'll cross that bridge if and when it comes. I want a baby more than I want a new job; but I'm not sure how much longer I can last in this position. I'm exhausted; not physically but my brain is just TIRED and I'm sick of the level of stress if stuff doesn't get done. I feel like a very poorly maintained machine right now. I've been on overtime since late last night and I could fall asleep at any minute.
I don't know if applying for any other jobs is really helpful at all. But is sitting here complaining about the job I have now any better?
