I have no insurance and am sick and missing work, I am required to bring in a doctor's note. I have tried to get in at a free clinic no luck. Thanks.

Keep at it: What do you mean no luck? If there is a waiting list, get on it and be seen. Every state has low-fee/free community health centers. Search online. Go to one and get help from a social worker to obtain health insurance. Great if you can connect to a HealthTap doctor meantime who's in your state! ...Read more

There's very few professions that you'd be exposed to spiders in reality, since they aren't often seen unless you are in the extermination business. So, realistically, it may be harder to prove it's merit if your job has no exposure to spiders. Most places are clear of these insects. ...Read more
