When your days become all work and no play, your morale and enthusiasm quickly plummets. I’m currently stuck in one of those ruts where you have disdain for everything – rounding, answering pages, being in the hospital.You begin to wonder why anyone would subject themselves to this kind of a career. Eat, sleep, work and repeat, often times without the sleeping or eating.
Perhaps it’s because of summer and the weather is so nice outside. Maybe it’s third year clerkship burn out. Whatever it is, just got to keep grinding through and hope to make it out in one piece.
Edit: Can you guess which rotation I’m on?
