“If you aren’t strong enough to handle the pressure in medical school without developing crippling depression, then maybe you’re just unfit to become a doctor”

well if 6 years of medical school aren’t enough to stop you from being a dick to people for no good reason, then maybe you’re unfit to become a doctor, ever thought about that?

Reminder to self: 

Do not ever call your colleagues when they are not on duty to question their clinical judgement. 

It is hell to be on the receiving ends of these phone calls. It ruins the entire day for them, too often it is all for nothing. 

Everything can either be managed by yourself, or can wait until the next working day when the said colleague has returned to work.

ICD 10 Treasures

Patient: I keep feeling like my throat is tightening up. It’s really scratchy and dry and I feel like I can’t take a deep breath.

Wayfaring: have you been exposed to anything new? Foods, perfumes, cleaning products?

Patient: hmm, no new foods or cleaning products. My friend just convinced me to buy the essential oil starter kit from her and I’ve been diffusing them in every room at home to keep all this sickness away.

tired. this block has been rough on me and i didn’t expect it.

dreading the push into “real” step studying because…how. trying to take care of myself but it’s HARD. i exist.

i’m pretty sure i’ll make it through. not sure how, but i’ll find out. what else is there to do?

i would like to shamelessly solicit advice from any US medblrs out there. my ass is very wound up about interview season. out of the fifteen schools i’ve applied to (most of which were in state), i’ve received 3 interview invites, and i believe i’ve done well at the 2 interviews i finished. it’s nearing november now and i haven’t heard from any of the other schools i’ve applied to other than those 3. i understand the application cycle is pretty crazy this year, but i would think that with my high stats (like, 4.0 and 522 mcat), extracurriculars, and personal statement i’d get more than this now. i guess that sounds a bit privileged, but i really did work my tail off to get where i am now, and right now it just feels like a setback. does anyone have any advice for the next steps i can/should take? i believe the interviews i’ve had already went really well, and i’d be lucky to go to med school anywhere. but i can’t help but worry because…well, i’d really, really like to go to a med school in town so i can be near my family to help out. 

any advice you can spare would be greatly appreciated :)))
