An extended long weekend calls for some proper mood music. Why not step into the music time machine for a bit of nostalgia.

That’s not First Aid.

Lately, my checklist for residency has been growing with more and more items. The most recent  addition is ACLS and BLS training. Thankfully I have done these courses before so at most, a recertification is all that will be required.

Giving a Research Presentation to Faculty

…and getting blindsided by some questions I had not thought of.

I'm a 16 year old girl & haven't gotten ANY shots / physicals since I was in Kindergarden . I attend public school without my vaccinations etc etc etc and my school allows me to attend with no hesitation. It's my body, my rights. I don't have to put any shit in it that I don't want to. And I'm still very healthy to this day. 5"4 118 lbs. — Asked by Anonymous

Ok, y’all need to stop because this is getting embarrassing. I’m starting to lose my temper.

So just because in all your 16 years you have never gotten sick doesn’t mean that vaccines aren’t necessary. I’m 25 and I have never been in a car accident- that doesn’t mean that I don’t have to wear a seatbelt or check my mirrors when I change lanes. Your personal experience- and the experience of any one individual unvaccinated person- DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING. AT ALL. PERIOD. If you weren’t as selfish and clueless as the vibe I’m getting, you’d thank your vaccinated classmates and fellow citizens for your streak of good health. Your height to weight ratio has nothing to do with vaccines or sometimes even if you are healthy, ps.

You don’t wanna put ‘shit’ in your body? Cool. Don’t. But stay the hell away from the doctor’s office or the ER if you or someone in your house comes down with something, because the only way to fix it is to put ‘shit’ in your body to keep you from dying or having chronic life-altering after effects. And obviously the latter isn’t a priority.

Actually… You don’t trust vaccines? Fine! Why stop there! Don’t use inhalers to prevent status asthmaticus, don’t use birth control pills to prevent unwanted pregnancy and help horrific menstrual cramps, don’t use aspirin to help a headache, don’t use chemotherapy to cure cancer, don’t use insulin to keep type 1 diabetics out of fatal comas, don’t use neosporin to keep your skinned knee from getting infected.

Because if you don’t trust the science behind vaccines, why trust the rest of it?

It only took 35 years for flesh-eating bacteria to become an infectious terror

All it took for flesh-eating bacteria to go from harmless organisms to gruesome infectious pathogens was four mutations and about 35 years. That’s what an international group of researchers announced today in a study that outside experts are calling the largest bacterial genome paper ever published.

New Chapter. New Roles.
These months have all been about change and adjusting to it:
I have to be adjust to being a resident. I have to adjust to being a doctor. I have to adjust to being a husband. And we can add another item to the list.
Now, I also have to adjust to being an uncle.

The last few days have been very busy from every front, from planning the wedding and honeymoon, to getting ready for the licensing exam and residency. Somewhere along the line, I let a few things get under my skin. It is time to listen to some music and unwind.
