Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and body together.
I would love to have some exercise equipment at the hospital, preferably a strength room.
Remember the summer of 2011, when I began following through with an exercise regimen? The one that I had been putting off for a while? It has been coming along well. I feel great, I look more filled out, and I feel healthier overall.
But I am sorry that the downside to all of that is that I am eating a lot more and a lot more often. This must have been a pain in the clinical years. As the third year student said: “Eat when you can, sleep when you can.” I hope the increased appetite was not a bad thing. I apologize if the growling stomach ever hit you at the least opportune times.
On a similar note, I hope you are getting enough sleep. You better be taking care of yourself. That is my body too.

A well person is a patient who has not been completely worked up.
A resident’s answer to the question: what is a well person?

A medical doctor uninterested in nutrition, in agriculture, in the wholesomeness of mind and spirit is as absurd as a farmer who is uninterested in health. Our fragmentation of this subject cannot be our cure, because it is our disease.
