Week 14: Insomnia rears its ugly head

I haven’t written much this week. Truth be told, I haven’t done much of anything. Insomnia reared its ugly head again and thwarted all the plans I had carefully laid.

Week 7: We get overworked!

My job involves pre-employment drug testing mostly. I mean there’s other stuff like post-accident, insurance, custody, clinical etc. But mostly it’s pre-employment. Usually, when work gets busy, I feel a sort of pride because I know jobs are opening up and people are getting hired and that’s a good thing. We usually see this type…
