The B Team

Hi. Sorry for the gap - have started cramming for the next (and final, if I pass) post-grad exam in June. There is a hell of a lot of work to get through and I will need luck on my side too.
The incompetent fool I was working with on my last ward is still there, and no doubt still useless and dangerous. Sod it. Not my problem now. I have moved to another department.
Ironically I did not complain about the aforementioned person, but when one of the senior doctors later decided to ask her to do some work, she (the useless one) complained to the consultant, which resulted in the senior doctor being reprimanded for being too harsh! And the icing on the cake was that the senior doctor mentioned my name in their defence stating that I had also had issues with the fool. The rumour was that the consultant wanted to see me but I rotated to my next job before any of that bollocks could be organised in time. It's a shame that senior doctor didn't help me out when I raised the issue in the first place. They only mentioned my name to deflect attention from themselves.

The next few weeks will be rushing by as I frantically try to learn as much medicine as I can. If I fail the exam I can resit it a further two times before turning my attentions to something completely different. If I pass, I'll stay in hospital medicine but will be looking at career options which don't involve selling my soul to Hewitt and her minions.

I'm 29 and just had a very intense episode of PCS, I,ve had them before but just found out right now what it is. I freeze up for about 30 seconds and can hardly breathe.It's pretty painful for me.My girlfriend was worried but I was convinced that it was not my heart, It just didn't feel like "heart pain" Relieved it's nothing too serious tho...
