It's nice to sleep in my own bed and not have to deal with the regime of hospital where you snatch naps in between scheduled observations and drug administrations. While the regime is obviously necessary, the luxury of an extra half an hour without being disturbed has been wonderful. There are many advantages to being hospitalised in the place you work. For a start, you understand the reasons why some things happen, but the down side is that people actually get to see you when you look your grottiest. That hasn't been very comfortable for me over the last few days.
My first day back at work in almost a month. It feels like it’s been almost a year! It's amazing how quickly you can forget things. I missed my afternoon nanna nap. I really could get used to staying home, devoting time to study and pottering around my house. I never thought that I could, but these days I'm more content to just "be".I'm reminded of a song sung by John Denver, the title escapes me now, but the line "my life is worth the living, I don't need to see the end" resonates strongly with me these days.
