Too many babies, too many catastrophes, too much call. I'm in a 3 person practice - we want about 35 deliveries/month total. So far for December : 20 deliveries for me alone. And the month is only half done.
And I still have to see patients during the day and operate.
My next vacation can't come soon enough. It's hard to be nice when you're tired. Right now, I'm faking being interested in my patients, because I'm too tired to BE interested. I fall asleep eating supper with the family...if I'm there.
So women, take pity on your OB-Gyns...it's a tough life.
