“I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today
I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today”
- Lyrics to “Be OK” by Ingrid Michaelson
I’m post-call from a 13 hour day of work.
I had one consult today on-call. The consult was initiated by the patient’s surgeons because the patient was “agitated and screaming.” It turns out she was in severe pain, and had a plethora of other reasons to be quite agitated. It reminded me of my hospitalization when I was in pain, and my docs didn’t believe me. It turns out that all she needed was better pain control. Sometimes listening is the best medicine.
I also had a bit of an emotional roller coaster type of day. Some of it was my own fault. Sometimes I think I just want to feel something today.
Too tired to write more. Happy almost Valentine’s day!
