I think it is no secret that the job of DON is very stressful. The doc who sent me home today b/c she says I am sick from the stress, said, "But please don't quit....we need you there."

I know why I do this job. But I am interested in knowing why others do this despite the stress. Would love to hear your reasons.

It must be because I set my own hours and don't have to punch a timeclock. But, I still don't get paid when i work those 11 hour days... hmmmm.
