THE LOCUM DIARIES (34)

Day 34... So I came into the hospital earlier than usual. When I mean ‘earlier’, I don’t mean 30 minutes before resumption time o! I mean like 2 hours! So this is what happened. The day before, I got a call from one of the other Doctors, that she won't be around today and there … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (34)

Day 32... New day, New feel, New looks! I don’t know why, but I really wanted to look dashing today. It's not like there's any lady I suddenly came across at work ooo, but it had been so long since I wore a starched shirt, well tucked in, on nice, well-ironed pants, sleeves neatly folded, … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (32)

Day 31... Lol! The devil is a liar! Why is it that anytime I decide to go to work early that is when something will come up. It is either I meet an old friend or I jam food, or one sweet gist will come up. I am not understanding. Anyway, Today was a funny … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (31)

Day 27... Tuesdays are like my busiest days, from jumping out in the morning to get to the radio station early enough to ‘show prep’, to dozing off in ‘Nigerian go-slow’ all afternoon to landing in the hospital in the evenings all worn out! It's always like a marathon. Today wasn’t any different as I … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (27)

DAY 26 It's another month end and you know the thing with ‘month ends’ na, you are barely struggling to hold on, hoping salary drops any moment and in your mind/head, any phone sound= text message= alert. I had literally scraped through the last few Nairas in my possession to be able to come to … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (26)

Day 25... The thing about not seeing patients for a long period of time is that by the time they start coming in their droves, you become ‘patient-rusty’. Exactly how I felt as I stepped out to work. I have spent the last few days playing solitaire at work, yes you read right, SOLITAIRE! At … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (25)

Day 24... ‘I just said let me put my head on the pillow, that’s how I ended up waking up by 6.20pm!’. I was literally running to the bus-stop. What was supposed to be light rest after a long day turned out to be a marathon sleep session. Luckily traffic wasn’t as bad as other … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (24)

Day 19... If I came in yesterday exhausted, I came in today ‘utterly worn out’!. I literally dragged myself to the hospital. The moment I came in, everyone asked ‘Doctor, are you ok?’ ‘Yes, I am just tired’, I replied with a little smile on my face. As I walked to the office, I met … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (19)

Day 18... Now I feel what the ‘working class’ go through when they feel super exhausted when they come back from a hard day’s job and use the whole weekend to sleep. I haven’t even started ‘WORK’ and I’m already feeling ‘spent’. Maybe God is sending a message, that hard life is nor for me … Continue reading THE LOCUM DIARIES (18)
