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.
