It could be a good thing if I meant "no one is sick anymore" but its not that..
When I say "everyone" is out of town, I mean literally: No one is here!
I am used to seeing around 30 patients a day, more or less.. But if I was to sum up the patients I saw this WEEK I would say they fell short of 20.. (That's in four days)!
One might say: quelle chance! You should enjoy the slow pace, savour the tranquillity et al.. But realistically.. Its just.. Boring!
To me, getting out of bed and going to work is such a big thing that I would rather not go to work than spend the day doing close to nothing at the clinic!
And after the first hour of journal updates (which are on summer break mode too), work emails, some paper work and chit chatting with the other doctors.. I pretty much have nothing to do but wait till a patient walks in.. To a person sans patience (like me ;p) its pure torture!
Its a summer thing, I'm told.. August is the slowest month for us here..
Its just not working for me though.. So I decided to take a few days off.. Might as well stay in bed till a decent hour and do something more time efficient with the rest of the day!
- to september! xx
