I like the rain
Starting to realize that making it through Medical School is not by choice. It has to be “there is no other option”. Because those who have the choice seem to be choosing to not continue… for their own mental well being.
Conditions are favorable for a depressive event starting Sunday morning and continuing through Friday. Check on Jennifer and be prepared to provide social interaction.
Prof: You all are very quiet right now. I know, you’re tired. Or you’re angry? Or you’re hungry!
50% of us in Unison: All of the Above.
Last week I re-learned something I had forgotten I had realized 10-15 years ago.
I was noting and commenting on how I REALLY LIKE Obstetrics! But how I really DO NOT LIKE Gynecology. I have 0 interest, like anti-desire, to be a Gynecologist. And, unfortunately, in today’s medical world to do Obstetrics you also have to do Gynecology. Oh well. Then we got to the actual delivery of the baby stuff, and that’s when the Aha moment hit me, and I remembered what I had figured out oh so long ago: I’m not here for the mother. I’m only here for the baby.
So again and still, for me all roads lead to Pediatrics!
From OBYGN Professor who is also practicing:
“OBGYN is not rocket science. What it requires is working long hours without falling asleep.”
Yeah… half way through Female Reproduction class and pretty sure I’ve struck OBGYN off my list of what kind of doctor I’m gonna be.
UPDATE: Later the prof said the same thing with the amendment: “OBGYN is not rocket science. And it’s not neuro science.” I thought that was a nice tip to the neurologist colleagues.
Arrgh! Autocorrect on my phone keeps turning bueno into burnout! I gotta be able to say my Spanish, stupid phone!
Eavesdropping on a prof before class. Prof says: “… anesthesiology, you’re bored all day long until something goes wrong, and that’s what they pay you for. You’re the only one who knows how to fix it!”
Yeah, no thanks.
So much to do.
So little will to do it.
… actually, it’s just the mentally challenging tasks.
I’m having no problems getting up and doing physical tasks (chores, exercise, errands, repairs, etc.)
