So, I know I've been a bad poster. Very bad.

I came home from California and got sick on the plane and then spent a week with the flu while trying to get ready to start my new locum.

Started my new locum to come in to the surprise that the physician I'm covering for sees a patient very 10 minutes... including physicals and well baby visits. To me, that's unacceptable. I see a patient every 15 minutes, physicals for 20 and well babies for 20 in my own office. I have asked them to change this for me and they said "sure"! but as of yet I'm maybe getting 50/50 compliance on that. I feel run off my feet, strung out, and like a bad doctor. I'm also in a bit of a slump and my exercise level has tanked along with my mood and body image. My gym sent out emails that it's going to close so now I need to find the time to look at new gyms. I'm having palpitations. again. This only happens when I'm stressed out.

Just remember to breathe. Medicine (and life) is filled with busy times, but you've survived them in the past and will get through this too. Hopefully the office staff get better at scheduling soon!
