Attending life is full of new challenges. I have called patients and set up appointments and reviewed pathology this entire break. I can’t emotionally separate from what is going on. There are many good changes - I do have increased control over my schedule, autonomy, and there is a more personal sense of fulfillment. But, I am still so tired. I feel constantly behind at home and at work - there is always more to do. Part of the reason we’re having a staycation is just I didn’t have the energy or time to plan a proper vacation.
So, I’m writing this post as proof that from this moment on I will close my laptop and try to unplug. And in a few days I will be back, hopefully energized just a bit so that I can keep moving.
