Going back to work has really hit me hard. I have had a constant headache for 4 days now, I wake up with it, it briefly goes away with double strength painkillers and then settles back in a few hours later. I have always suffered from backache, but now it seems to have tripled in severity. So much so, that I have a weekly appointment with a small Chinese lady, who literally beats the crap out of my back with her elbows, hands, knees.....it's amazing!
I also now have started to get hip pain on my right after more than 12 hours on call. My body is literally falling apart. I feel like a complete bag of moans today and hopefully this negative attitude will have lifted by tomorrow. BUT tomorrow is Monday so probably not!
So let me get all my moans out there for today. I cannot fathom how I still have 2 years to go until I am specialised. Give me strength! I don't think I can possibly do this for another 24 months. It's crazy! It feels like my body will definitely not be able to cope.
OK. I'll stop now...
Tomorrow is another day...blah blah
