‘I’m so tired of work, I fleetingly hope for mild COVID-19 – and a week off’

The irony is not lost on me that it was today, the annual Crazy Socks 4 Docs day, that I found myself sobbing in the shower at the prospect of having to go to work.

It’s supposed to be the day that raises awareness and breaks down stigma of mental health in doctors. Yet here I was, washing my tears away, putting on my big girl scrubs and heading to clinic.
