I hate 3 am deliveries.

I hate 4 am deliveries.

I really hate 5 am deliveries.

I hate my shit magnet status.

I wish laboring patients would come in for my partners and not me.

Seriously, why do they all come in for me? (in fairness, I have one other partner who has similar luck)

6% section rate? REALLY? REALLY?!?!?!?!?!?

This weekend killed my 0% episiotomy rate, however. Oh, well. Everyone came out the intended route.

My vacation cannot come fast enough.

I'm sick of post-menopausal bleeds. Lately I've been the D&C queen.

I hate computers.

I LOATHE meaningful use.

Got my first 2016 EDC patient this week.

Being a high-maintainence drama queen will kill office morale quick.

Being the easy-going one means you get walked upon.

I hate vag hysts.

But I got a nice compliment from multiple OR nurses - they tell me I do a nice vag hyst & if they need one, they'll have me do it.

I daydream about GYN only sometimes.

I am not a miracle worker.

No, I did NOT know about crazypants' heroine use while pregnant. Hell, I didn't even KNOW she was knocked up again.

Love this post. So relate, from a fellow dark cloud (nurses on L&D call me "the hurricane" because dark cloud does not do my luck justice). Hope your vacation is super soon. That is all. ~dr. whoo

As a scrub nurse, I hated vag hysts too. We used to just line the instruments up and stand there and it was self-service. That weighted speculum used to give me nightmares, that was one scary instrument. Your blog is very interesting. For a look at the good old days of healthcare please see my blog at oldfoolrn.blogspot.com

Just don't let the weighted spec land on your foot. I've done that twice, it hurts like a mother.

Those weighted speculums are hard to handle when covered in blood, Surgi-lube, or who knows what else. From the Old Fool Surgical Instrument Design Center, it's the slip-proof weighted speculum with a space age slip proof, pedal protective finish. I've already made my vast fortune from years of being a scrub nurse, so someone else can cash in on this revolutionary new instrument.

All my life I thought I would be a pharmacist Inshallah. But these last 2 years I have been toying with the idea of being a doctor instead. SO now Im debating whether I want to be a pharmacist or a doctor.

I asked the pharmacist that I work for and he advised me to NOT be a pharmacist. But instead, I should be a specialized doctor (in just one thing...cardio, leg, skin etc etc). He said those are the people that make the big money.

But on the other hand, I know that a pharmacist works less and makes a decent amount of money.

I love any job in the medicine field (including pharmacy) except surgery (Don't like dealing with blood).

SO I need advise from some of my bros and siss here. Give me the advantage and disadvantage of pharmacy and doctors. Also tell em what doctor you recommended if you do recommended it.

Keep in mind that I could work in either Egypt or the USA anytime.

Please help me out. I'm confused and the college process is VERY soon, and I need to decide.While you may not want to decide for me, at least give me the advantage and disadvantages of both and your opinion.

Heart disease is a silent global epidemic, and with increasing urbanization, sedentary lifestyles, faulty food habits, lack of exercise and excessive stress, the number of heart patients is on the rise.
