Once upon a time, a strapping young buck dove into the field of Emergency Medicine with ne’er a thought of night shift fatigue. He loved his work, headed into each shift bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and relished the butterflies in his stomach that multiplied commensurate with the number of ambulance rigs in the emergency lot. He loved the social justice aspect of caring for the patient without caring if they were insured. He loved sewing lacs on alcoholics who shared their life stories (and occasionally their gastric contents) as if he were their personal bartender. He even tried to learn something new about the delusional homeless patient who visited the department almost daily in the belief that the air in the ED was somehow salubrious (it was mostly noxious). He felt lucky - someone paid him to do this!
