exhausted

I’m so tired, physically, emotionally, that as soon as I finish typing this, I’m going to bed.

The attending’s ego will be bruised for a days, but it’s the family who will have to live with the consequences and it infuriates me.

I’m not sure if critical care is for me. And for entirely different reasons than when I first started this month.
