The feeling of contentment doesn’t usually last long in the field of medicine.

I get up at 5am and work my arse off for twelve hours to keep some patients alive, to help others with various medical problems and sometimes I have to explain to a distraught family why their loved one died.

How do I find contentment? By finding the little things that get me through the day—eating chocolate, reading the newspaper and cuddling my boyfriend.

The last time I managed to do all three was last week, hopefully today I can end the dry spell.
