Hear me YAWN!
My brain is feeling sore. I have been completely absent minded today. So much sad news and good news coming from home, makes me feel like I am just living in this pseudo-reality that is medical school. People are born, people die. There are floods and earthquakes and civil wars and hockey games and movie festivals yet I seem to be floating just below the surface of all of this. All I am thinking about is the different causes of neutropenia and the histology of a nephron.
This morning I woke up and wondered what day of the week it was and then realised that it didn't really matter because my day would be unfolding in the same way no matter what. The only difference would be if I would wear my really ratty sweat pants (no classes) or my <1year old sweat pants (classes).
I went to the market and bought a green pepper (I hate green peppers!) and when the woman who sells brownies told me she couldn't believe that I ate brownies because I was so "flat" (compliment?) I told her I had an obsessive exercise disorder (I don't). Seriously! Is that the appropriate way to respond to a nice remark about being in shape?
Feel like I am starting to go a little c-r-a-z-y!! But it's almost a nice crazy. I actually don't mind the long days of studying except that it reminds me off the pseudo-euphoric-daze that I'd fall into after too many night shifts in a row, when you get a little giddy and a little nauseated.
My first thought yesterday when I woke up was "What are the three branches that come off the aortic arch??"
That is just not normal.
