Anonymous said: Couldnt understand you more. Go to a shoe store and ask for confortable shoes to work they are a huge change trust me. Take care of your legs now i have spiders and vericose veins for standing up so many hours

I ordered a pair of Sanita black professional clogs. I was so disappointed that they were too small. I have large feet and sometimes finding shoes can be difficult.
I want some good shoes for rotations, I just need to find a place around here that sells them and in my size lol.

Wishing I could cut off my legs!

Standing for most of my 12 hr shift on Peds is what led to this!

(Hopefully I’ll build up a tolerance lol.)

Just asked my mom if she’d print an awesome 73pg Peds review packet for me at work… Now this ^^^ is what I imagine she is doing.

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…

Some of the folks on my IM team are DO’s and I said, “Awesome, you can use your OMM sorcery on me!” And they acted surprised an MD student knew what was up.

Haha that’s great! It’s nice when you meet other professionals that know what D.O.s are. During 2nd year clinical experiences most of the docs I followed around had no clue.
It’s always fun to whip out the OMT sorcery on the unknowing! Muahahaha. :)

Hey! I was wondering, how did you study in third year? For us we spend 1 week on each “system” so we had our first week on cardiology, and I noticed we get very few lectures and a lot of it is just learning on the wards. It seems like we’re just expected to do our own readings and figure stuff…

DOs HALP!

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.

I start my Peds rotation next week.

(The only specialty I had already ruled out was Peds…) lol
