We were recently consulted on medical work-up of a young, previously highly functioning patient who presented with new onset auditory hallucinations and disheveled appearance. My first response was "test for anti-NMDA!.. have you guys read Brain on Fire?? You HAVE to read Brain on Fire!!"Read More
Hey guys! I've been trying to think of ways for you to get to know me better (and hopefully vice versa). I thought sharing a few of my favorite things around the internet would be a great way to start. I was inspired to start this series by a fellow blogger - Franish's top 3 series. I'm going to try to make this a weekly post, but maybe bimonthly. The content will vary on whatever fascinated me the previous week. Sometimes it will be medicine heavy, sometimes beauty heavy, sometimes all Atlantic articles on race & politics. Share your favorites we me too! Let's chat!
Brief life update:
- I'm currently on night shift, which means I admit general medicine patients to the hospital at night and help take care of the day team's patients while they get their much deserved rest after a hard day's work. The transition to nights hasn't been as hard as I expected because I'm completely caffeine dependent. The time I'm awake is dictated more by the # of cups of coffee I've had than circadian rhythm.
- My New Years resolution is to create more - more blog content, more laughter, more art, VIDEOS, more healthy meals in my own kitchen, etc.
- I'm met my boyfriend's parents! They are exactly the type of people who would raise such an amazing human being.
