The world of medicine is like a bubble. A lot of people THINK they know what goes on there, but unless you're down in the trenches it's unlikely you do. So here is my semi-anonymous blog, here to tell you what really goes on in the life of a medical resident.

Testing, Testing, 1,2,3...

I'm not even sure how to do this anymore. And I doubt anyone is still listening. But apparently, Blogger will let blogs lie dormant for 2 years + without shutting them down. Huh. Who knew?

The danger in that is that inevitably, after practicing emergency medicine for 2.5 years, things will eventually wear you down enough that they will come boiling to the surface in a tsunami of resentment, irritation and rage at... well, everyone. At patients, at their families, at other doctors, at various support staff, at administration, at politicians... no one is safe.

And then, even if you thought you'd never blog again, you find yourself longing for an outlet... something that isn't satisfied by the soundbites generated by a Twitter account.

I may be back. Unless I can talk myself out of it.
