beegoestomedicalschool replied to your post: Schrodinger´s week

Just wait until they don’t know you’re coming at all and you stand awkwardly in the corner for over an hour while a staff member goes to find out what is happening and doesn’t come back :)

this happened to us in our younger years. But then we kinda told to ourselves that if we wont start doing something against this apathy to teach us nobody will. So usually we go straight to the head of the department and tell them where is the problem and they, most of the time, take care of it.

the main point is

you are there to freacking learn and sadly somehow we got into this point where so many doctors think that teaching us is a waste of their time?

it sucks I know. 

From the Archives: TSK: UPDATE on the guy with new heart attack and atrial fibrillation: PART DEUX



So the guy had originally come into my urgent care because his left arm was hurting him (BIG SURPRISE: you’re having a HEART ATTACK, sir.). He left AMA (against medical advice) when I called an ambulance for him.

1 hour later — guess who’s at the front desk, complaining that “the doctor didn’t do anything about my arm pain, I want some medicine for that!”?????

(I just may void the warranty on my work-desk by banging my head against it this hard.)

Episode 1, Episode 2.


Overcoming Discouragement


Ignore those who say that they never feel down. We’re surrounded by messages on positive thinking because so many battle with discouragement. So what can you do when you’re living in a cloud, and everything seems pointless and negative?

1. Ask someone you respect if they ever feel discouraged. You’ll be surprised by how common, and how normal, it is.

2. Acknowledge how you feel – as it’s better to be real than to stuff your emotions and pretend that things are fine.

3. Encourage someone else … and see the difference it makes. It will not just help them, you will feel better, too.

4. Get some exercise. Exercise releases the “feel good” hormones (endorphins) so you’ll feel less depressed, and you’ll have more energy.

5. Set some short term goals, and then work to reach those goals. There’s nothing like success for improving how we feel.

6. Focus on the things that you naturally do well – to remind yourself, again, of your talents and your strengths.

7. Talk to a friend. There nothing worse than feeling isolated and alone. But spending time with others can raise your self-esteem. Also, it puts things in perspective and your problems start to shrink.

8. Reward yourself, or do something you enjoy. You deserve to be nurtured, affirmed and treated well. When you’re battling your feelings you need that extra boost.

9. Journal how you feel. It’s highly therapeutic to express what’s on your mind.

10. Take a break and rest. Feeling worn out and discouraged can sap your energy. You need to stop, be refreshed, and have your energy restored.

Schrodinger´s week

We got our timetables like week or two weeks ago and there was this funny thing with our first week, this week. Like half of the week was marked as “free” and the other half was marked as classes.

We were like wtf? 

So we asked our adviser and she was like it means - hospital hours as usual right?

No. Woke up super early to get to the hospital just to be told that actually we have this week free. 

1. Do these people know how to use emails? 

2. I just love when our uni department and some hospital dep cannot communicate properly and then it´s my time that gets wasted.

We get so worried about being pretty. Let’s be pretty kind. Pretty funny. Pretty smart. Pretty strong. Britt Nicole (via ocean-chasing)
