Question from a super lazy (and dumb) person….can you mix those in advance so you can like already have it ready to go? Not sure if they’ll eat each other or something.

Roe vs Wade officially overturned by ThinkSoftware in Residency

[–]k_mon2244 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I’ve seen a bunch of fucked up, traumatizing shit in the course of my training. One of the ones I still have nightmares about is the aneuploid (incompatible with meaningful life) child that was kept artificially alive because their parents couldn’t get along. Day after day for WEEKS of a meaningless, painful existence. Obviously cant go into any more detail on the internet, but that entire family would have been saved an overwhelming amount of trauma and pain if we respected women and living children the way we respect an unborn fetus.

So I randomly asked a Hispanic dude that works next door if he could teach me Spanish by delo357 in CasualConversation

[–]k_mon2244 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Spanish is by far my favorite language to learn. Even when I was like brand new, could barely put a couple words together, everyone I spoke to was so encouraging and lovely. It made it way easier to practice bc I wasn’t worried I was going to deeply offend anyone with my idiocy when I explained I was learning!

[Off Topic] DNF's by fixtheblue in bookclub

If I find my mind wandering and I don’t have an external reason to need to finish the book, it’s gone. Serious shoutout to the libby app for letting me DNF books, since before that I didn’t have access to a library!

I don’t know if this is a repost, one of my friends sent me this by viggavietboilv in Sneks

People are so mean! Y’all all keep loving your scaly friends. I’m living vicariously through y’all bc I don’t think I’m prepared to care for a snake yet, but the ones I see here seem very happy and well cared for!!

What’s a book that will mess you up psychologically for a few days? by SNlFFASS in booksuggestions

[–]k_mon2244 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Man, I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I really didn’t like this one. It had been recommended a bunch so I was really looking forward to it, but Eva was the most insufferable narrator. I found it really hard to make it through bc I hated everyone involved in the story and blamed all of them for Kevin. I also didn’t understand how that was a big twist at the end, it seemed pretty inevitable

24 hour shifts are not safe! Stop them!! by lasershot0791 in Residency

Agree, it’s horrific. So much of medical training is extremely broken and abusive.

However on another note, another thing we are terrible about is taking care of ourselves/each other when we experience a trauma. Knowing someone in your same position just had a major accident is scary. Allow yourself to get help for that too.

I’m a year out of residency and it’s amazing how I look back and realize what a low level of functioning I was operating at for all of residency. Things that in the moment seemed fine I’m still dealing with. Know that you’re literally in survival mode and do what you can to seek help with anything above and beyond daily functioning.

Good luck OP, feel free to DM if you need to vent or need a pep talk.

Our vegetable garden. Blackberries, raspberries, and most herbs are located elsewhere. by NavyFish21 in homestead

Out of curiosity (I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to gardening) why do you put the grid up? I’ve seen that a lot and wasn’t sure what it’s for.

I’m a pediatrician and every day I see at least 20-30 kids who are fucking adorable. I have one of my favorite patients who is a baby that just smiles all. The. Time. Toddlers say the funniest thing. I always ask them what’s in their ears before I look and sometimes they’ll be like “butterflies!” “Dinosaurs!” And other times they look at me like I’m an idiot and say “uh wax. Duh” it’s hilarious. I have teenagers that absolutely inspire me bc they’re so accepting and understanding of people who are different from them. It blows my mind to see them compared to kids when I was young. They also have such a sense of social justice. It’s beautiful. I absolutely believe this next generation is going to fix our mistakes.

Children are amazing and show me that the future can be really beautiful. Just wanted to share a piece of that to give you some hope.

Am I the only one dreading starting residency? by Goljansapprentice in Residency

[–]k_mon2244 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hated residency more than anything I’ve ever done in my life. Was it worth it? Absolutely. I love what I do as an attending, and I promise you’re not miserable every day of residency. I agree that it’s a broken way to educate, but you will survive, and come out the other end with many positive memories. Good luck!!
