I think you have to sometimes take with a grain of salt what you hear and read. There are some who welcome a recession and tanked economy because of their political beliefs. (Yes, probably just as bad as wishing someone dead from corona virus that they disagree with on a message board, but there you have it.) The US has been through many tough times before since the Depression, and I believe we'll come through this ok, too. Just hang in there. I do hear what you are saying, for sure. It probably wouldn't hurt to start to think about back up employment if necessary. Some companies who have essential workers now are buffing up their numbers. But I'd probably just look around the hospital for another position if it comes to that, to make like easier. I'm sure there would be something you could do there, and that would keep your paycheck coming in.Has there ever been talk of another Great Depression before this? I personally don’t remember. Now I hear financial experts say we may headed into one now.
My childhood did shape me and made me who I am and I did alright but I never want to live that again. Or watch my kids be hungry or cold.
Got it. The boy being turned away by urgent care brought to my mind the Hippocratic Oath: First, do no harm...From what I've read: "Just hours after health officials in LA County announced the boy had died from the coronavirus — health officials said there may be an “alternate explanation” and that his death would be further investigated."
I think maybe because of his age, his lack of insurance and subsequent directive to go to the hospital rather than urgent care because of his lack of insurance they are probably wanting to be a bit more careful in the investigation before definitively ruling his death primarily caused by complications of coronavirus.
