Weekend Plans

I'm glad it's the weekend.
It's been a tough week at the office.
No particularly traumatic calls to deal with.
No particularly difficult decisions to make.
I've had some good calls that have made me think and learn.
I've treated all my patients the same as any other week - with respect, courtesy and professionalism.
But along with all that - this week, the system repeatedly let me down.
The frustration of feeling let down by the system that I serve, is compounded and even exceeded by the feeling that the system has also let my patients down.
And therefore, by extension, so have I.
And that's a feeling I don't like.
I'm glad it's the weekend, and I'm glad I'm not working it.
I need this weekend to regroup, rethink, re-energise.
When I return next week, I hope to be back to my normal self.

Sounds like you need the down-time. Hope you get the chance to - real life has a nasty habit of getting in the way!
