    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.

    Just stumbled across this and had to think of BP immediately. I know this is something people simply don't want to think, let alone talk about but it's one of the reasons I'm limiting time on here.

    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...).

    Really tired today after 24 h shift. Saturdays are the worst. My last 24 h shift will be next week. While I won't miss the working hours I will for sure miss a lot of colleagues.

    Just got the information yesterday evening when checking my mailbox. I guess the exam will be in January. They have to tell me the exact date at least two weeks in advance.

    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.

    Test yesterday was negative. So we now have a patient with symptoms of a respiratory tract infection, a negative-positive-negative test constellation and nobody seems to really know how to proceed further from there and referred to the public health department.

    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.

    Well, that was quite the start to the morning this weekend.  How's everyone doing?  What are your plans for this weekend?  I'm going to go have some responsible and social distanced hangout time with my best friend and her dogs, all of whom I haven't seen in half a year because of COVID-19.

    Had my sleeve surgery on August 3rd...no hospital stay...hate chocolate shakes...abhor fake sugar...have a new allergy to peanuts...5 days post op and life is definitely different but no regrets! To lose the weight and keep it off...I will have to do my research and develop a plan that will work for me to sustain a healthy lifestyle to benefit myself and my family.  No excuses and no guilt! I will not waste this fresh start! And...I have always dreamed of becoming a runner! Big dream but it is a possibility that I am definitely going to explore when the pain subsides!
