Thursday Born

The everyday life of a psychiatry resident (who was born on a Thursday).

Waiting :(

If anyone has any ideas for how I can sleep better for the next 16 nights until Match Day, I’d love to hear it! Lists are in, and the only thing standing between me and knowing where I’m living for the next three to five years is, well, I’m not entirely sure why it takes three weeks, but it does.

I thought it’d improve, but tonight I went to bed later and woke up even earlier! It’s normal for me to have trouble sleeping a night or two before big change, but nearly three weeks away? Sigh. It feels like I’m on a surgery rotation, except I’m on a fairly light outpatient gynecology rotation.

4:41am is an unacceptable wake up time when my alarm goes off at 6am. I’m going to try going back to sleep. (I started this post last night and figured I might as well finish it while catching myself in the act).

  1. Oh dear, try good old hot chamomile tea, with half a cup of lactase milk. Drink it a whole hour before bed time. The rosary helps, just 10 Hail Marys, and you will be gone. So long as you get 4 or five hours of deep sleep, you will be ok Sweetie. Then again, I like listening to the Beetles’ rendition of ” Let it Be” on my IPad. Thankfully, this too shall pass.

    • Thank you Mommy. :) I did just buy some chamomile tea yesterday, so I’ll give that a try! Thankfully the anxiety levels have subsided a bit on their own, but I still can’t wait for this to be over!
