Too stressed out

So I can't figure out if I am jet lagged or just super stressed out. I think it is probably the stress. I don't think that jet lag has anything on the crazy post-call, on call sleep deprivation of a surgery residency. So I am going to make a list for the world to see of each and every anxiety producing topic. Maybe if I can name them all, I can conquer them and get some sleep....or at least stop obsessing about them and get some sleep!

So i started to write them out....but then I started to hyperventilate and really i think i like repression and avoidance better....I am going to stick with that for a while! Besides I sounded really whiney! I think I will try exercise and repression/avoidance.

I would really love to post some definite information about the escort process from Kyrgyzstan since that is currently the official plan for Zeb's trip home - but i don't really know what is going on or what has to go on. I am just going to keep my fingers crossed that I make it to court this week and can start working on something concrete like getting the I600 filed and some plans made.

I do have a date on Sunday....I know like I need to add to my stress with a date. Additionally, I totally don't have any shoes to wear on my date!

I have only 9 days left of this rotation. Next month is going to be such a nice month. The rotation is a private hospital with a pretty low census service and home call. Home call means I only have to go in if something happens I don't have to stay at the hospital all night if I don't want. That means I am totally staying home on the weekends. yeah. If I stay in the hospital overnight I get to go home post call - so I will definitely be in house on the weeknights. it is going to be a nice month and it ends on the 24th for me. Double yeah!!

You have a lot going on so it's understandable that you're feeling this way. I was actually thinking of putting my 'to do' list on my blog, too...thinking this might help me conquer the tasks if I put them out there for all to see. I have so much to do, too, but you are way ahead of me and also have more life changing events going on. So, I don't have any right to stress (yet)!

Hope you get through the next few weeks and can take time to breathe. Good luck on Sunday...we'll need a full report!
