There's a debacle which EVERYONE in the medical industry has a opinion about.. No it's not politics, music or religion.. it's pharmaceutical sponsorship of "things". These things has ranged from drug company pens to drug company money sponsored flights to the Swiss Alps for a lecture...
This year, I’ve been continually amazed at the kind of crap drug companies hand out.. (The best would have to be a gadget that looks like a pair of plastic pliers which lights up at the tip- apparently used for looking up people's noses)
The above is a pen which glows neon blue. Kinda kewl really. At least, photography wise. If it were a bit longer, it would give a lightsaber a run for it's money.

What was the treatment of GORD again? PPIs and lifestyle modifications.. stop smoking, lose weight- yeh, sif patients listen to what you say.. unless you threaten them with the c word- CANCER! Reflux can lead to esophageal cancer which can lead to you DYING, so lose weight. That's pretty harsh.
Man, i can't wait til this year is over.
I'll miss out on seeing my brother play at the local cafe.
I'm old. not really. just old enough to know that i'm getting old. Too old to be sponging off the government anyways. i need a job something productive and something that pays. so i can live without feeling guilty about people feeling sorry for me. ARGH!
No time to work. have to study... what's the formula for fluid replacement for a person with burns? 4mlsXweightX%surface area burnt in 24 hours... if it's a complicated burn.. if it's a simple burn then 3mlsXweightX%surface area.. plus maintenance fluid... 3L a day for an average 70kg person. AVERAGE! the whole concept of average is an approximation.. what about the person??
Didn't say anything about not being crazy....
Aren't you glad you're not me??
