I have been working until almost 7PM the past couple of weeks. I cannot seem to keep my head above water. Too much work. It is not like I can just leave this stuff undone. People are counting on me.
I miss my kids.
They go to bed at 8PM. I get them up at 6:30AM so we can get to daycare by 7AM. Plus I was on call all last week/weekend. Not nearly enough time with them.
Sometimes I think I could just walk away from this job. But…meh…I am not sure that I could. I DO enjoy it.
I love my kids more.
Aaaarrrrrggghhh!!!!!!!!!!! Where is my work life balance?!?!!?! Give it back!
I used to think it was hard being a woman in this profession. But really it is much harder being a mom in medicine.
