Not long to go...

The 4th August. It's really not that far away now and not long until I start many a long and grueling year pulling along the rickety rickshaw of the responsibility of being a doctor.

They say moving house is the most stressful time in life - I'm thinking that maybe the first day is going to be my most stressful day. I've managed to start reading "Trust Me, I'm a Junior Doctor" again and it's really beginning to freak me out a bit! Although EWTD will probably be useful in controlling what used to be a horrendous work/life balance, I have a sneaking feeling that mistakes and deaths are less than two weeks away for the poor citizens of Juniorville.

As yet, I don't even have any idea how many fellow jobbing juniors I'll be working with! Baptism of fire, I guess you await me with open arms!

Dr Jr has had a hectic past week and I'm absolutely shattered. However, this probably pales in comparison to the hours I'll be working come August 3rd. Not only am I petrified I may hurt/maim/kill/paralyze/render corpse-like (delete as appropriate) a patient and their family and their dog, now I'm also petrified I may, quite literally, fall asleep on the job.

I have a bad feeling I'm going to miss my morning lie-ins...
