First of all, thank you for stopping by. I bet you're reading with one hand and simultaneously fixing three problems, wishing you had a snack!
This is a big gamble, this space, with my name on it.
Whether by cultural expectations or internal inclination, physicians are Not Supposed to Be People. They are supposed to be Physicians. Only. No opinion, no annoyance, no jokes, no interest in makeup. One work contract specifically forbade me to write, speak, or do any activity outside of my clinical duties, even on my personal time. I almost got a paper cut, I threw it out so fast! RIP.
The truth is, the M.D. addition did change me -- it took my natural fear of the unknown and grew it into the Control Freak. Was it because I was especially malleable when I started my training, still a teenager? (That is a story for later.)
What it didn't change was my love of words-- really, a compulsion for expression. A compulsion that, try as I might, to redirect into emails, blog comments, Moleskins... brought me here to you.
So if you like it, if you have any feelings ideas or reactions at all to this, please let me know.
I am counting on you!
Wishing you the health of happiness,
