I’m allocated to an orthopaedics ward that made me very anxious as I’m a medical nurse, however, 2 weeks later, I’m still breathing.

I started my work at 7:30 a.m so I had to get up at 6, unfortunately I fall asleep at 2a.m.. With lacking sleep mode, I still dragged my dead body to the ward. Simply greeted to my patients after hang over
