I woke up today with the worst crick in my neck. Like I can barely turn past midline on the right. My trap is tight from my head to my scapula and all my posterior neck muscles are all knotted up. I have massaged it, heating-padded it, and Ibuprofened it to no avail.
Halp. Tell me what magic button in my neck I’m supposed to press to make it all go back nice and loosey goosey.
^^^ My problem since I’ve started training for another half!
I’d give almost anything to have another D.O. student around to fix me!
I just flew into the town where my medical school interview is at….and they don’t have a chipotle.
Idk if I can go here.
I have made a terrible mistake!!!
Jk, kind of. I love my school, but I miss lots of stuff from back home.
(The only specialty I had already ruled out was Peds…) lol
Anonymous said: Do you have any quotes or sayings that help you keep studying?
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
I get side tracked from studying, but when it comes down to the grind, I think of how I’m part of a bigger plan. God has brought me thus far, and I must do my part to be prepared for the path that he lays before me.
Other things that help me refocus back to my studies, include taking a yoga break or listening to some alt/rock music.
If you feel burnt out, take a 10min break and come back. Distance yourself from social media (my biggest prob!). Stay hydrated, exercise, and get plenty of sleep!
