It’s been two whole days since I took myself off a couple social media sites and I am doing surprisingly well. It certainly doesn’t hurt that work has been insanely busy and there have been lots of letters to write and forms to fill out for patients.
I also volunteered earlier in the fall to be a file reviewer for a medical school admissions program and had forgotten all about it until an email arrived this week advising me that the files will be sent to me in the next few days. I am very excited to have been given this privilege of helping review files of prospective medical school candidates. It really does put a lot of things in perspective for me.
I am also attending an all day course this weekend, so will be busy learning all the things I need to be taught again. This break from social media is good for me and so far hasn’t been nearly as hard as I expected it to be.
Perhaps the withdrawal hasn’t quite kicked in yet.
