After a night duty in the ER of a very busy hospital, I was knocked down for sleep. 😴 I did not bother to even wake up for meals. The only break I did from sleep is when my bladder becomes distended and it sends signal to my brain to wake me up. Otherwise, I would look like a comatose patient. 😂
Anywho, I have not updated ever since med school begun. I have not published anything in years I think, if I’m not mistaken. I just like to point out the importance of sleep. ☺
1. Serves as a reset to your tired mind and body.
2. Serves as a temporary escape from reality.
3. Serves as a heaven of peace when the world is so caught up in a mess.
Well, I could think of several things to say that will emphasize the importance of sleep. Sadly, during medical clerkship, this is one of the things we sacrifice in order to be of service to people who are otherwise incapable of accessing tertiary level of health care in their own places. 😔
But I do think I deserve yesterday and last night. I do think I deserve such heavenly sleep after being deprived for so long. I think all doctors deserve any form of sleep without being reprimanded.
Doctors are not robots. We’re human, we get tired too. 😄
