Doctors And Nurses, Show Us What It's Like To Work On The Front Line Right Now

What is it like to be a healthcare worker right now?

Most of the world is currently doing the right thing by social distancing, self-isolating, or quarantining themselves because of the coronavirus.

But healthcare workers (and many other people!) don't have that luxury. They're on the front lines, taking care of us all. So if you're a healthcare worker, we want to see what it's actually like right now.

As we go into the weekend, here's a message from our team in the Emergency Department #StayAtHome

Maybe you took a selfie after a 13-hour shift to show how bruised your face got from the personal protective equipment.

Perhaps you have a heartbreaking photo that illustrates how this pandemic has influenced your life at work or at home, like this dad who broke down in tears because he couldn't hug his son after coming home from work.

A Saudi doctor returns home from the hospital, tells his son to keep his distance, then breaks down from the strain.

Or maybe you want to share a more uplifting pic. For example, this nurse made a bunch of pulled pork sandwiches and served them to his fellow nightshift crew as a way to celebrate their tireless work.

If you're a healthcare worker, we want to hear from you. Use the dropbox below to upload your pictures and tell us your stories about what it's like to be working during this pandemic.

Your response may be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post or video.
