Today I was able to breathe a little sigh of relief. My week of night float is over (more on that later!). And, I finally got paid!! I got hit hard with the shopping bug today, but luckily I’ve been too drowsy to do too much damage. But, I did manage to snag J. Crew’s linen skirt (x2)!! I got the beige and the navy. Somebody must have just made a return, because these were the only two left. I had to get them!
Quick subject change. I know there are a lot of ladies that read this blog that are in medicine or similarly difficult fields. Throughout medical school we rarely, if ever, talked about the stress we were under with each other. It was almost like if you said it, that made you weak. Nobody wanted that! But I’ve since quit caring what people think, and I’ve bluntly shared my feelings with my fellow residents. I shared how I’ve felt depressed this past week. And how I’ve been constantly stressed about making a “wrong decision.” Between the lack of sleep and the feelings of inadequacy, I’ve wondered why I decided to go into medicine in the first place. Well, turns out we all feel like this. So if anybody you know feels like this too (or you), tell them its normal. And this too shall pass 🙂 Happy Monday!
