    Hope you guys are still doing alright. I'm still drowning in work but managed to take a 4-day-weekend this week.
    Stumbled across this and had to think of the "choosing the goal weight"-threads and that many people obviously don't seem to fully realize what it might cost them to get (and stay!) there.

    It's just an infographic, there is a longer text available.

    Got just diagnosed with iron deficiency. So it's high dose supplements for a few weeks and another blood work. Plus testing for occult bleeding to make sure it's really a nutritional issue (most likely the cause - after all bariatric surgery is now regularly listed as a possible cause and given the fact that iron absorption occurs in the duodenum and upper jejunum...).

    Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

    Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
    I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
    Anyway, hoping people are ok!

    Anxiety is through the roof today. Things are overwhelming when looking at it in sum at the moment. The big picture is just, well... too big.
    We walked the dog today and just like yesterday I wasn't really in the mood.  Today even less so than yesterday because I knew what was going to happen. I tend to mull over things in my head and start ruminating when walking in quiet. The conversation with my husband will inevitably turn to these things, raining my anxiety even more.
    It's different when going for a run or a bike ride. Thoughts are not as present then. I don't know if it's the higher heart rate, the fact that I need to be more aware of the movement when running or needing to be more aware of the environment because of moving faster when riding a bike or a combination of it all.
    Fact is, I hate walking for this reason, even when not alone. I start ruminating and start to feel like crap when there's something going on.

    Temperature still normal. No symptoms. I guess having this kind of "diary" will be the new normal for medical staff working with ER patients because the corona tests are not fast enough for a quick screening at bedside.
    It kind of gives me the creeps when thinking about how many colleagues and other patients could've possibly been infected by one patient only with unknown corona infection. Yes, we all wore N95 or FFP2 masks and the patient wore a simple mask but anyway...

    Infection rates are soaring. I was a contact person again (and a fellow colleague who assisted me) and now we've gotten some sheet where we have to take note of any symptoms and we have to take our temp every day for 14 days. Luckily so far we're both alright.
    I guess this will be the new norm until we have a test fast enough so patients without symptoms can be isolated sooner.

    GL, I feel like a hammer has hit me on the head. Sunday's 24 h shift was beyond awful and one day of recovery is not nearly enough. I hate that jet lag feeling I often have after these shifts. Everyone deals with it but I doubt something's going to change.
    I'm leaving at the end of December. No more of this **** after that. Time to bring in the new **** then though, lol.
