🙋🏻Having the best week reading relaxing eating amazing Greek food and swimming 🏊🏼♀️
💆🏻It always takes me a day or so to be fully switched off and chilled when I get away on holiday, mainly because life is so hectic and I'm constantly rushing from one thing to the next... my brain is constantly expecting to have to concentrate on the next task in hand! 👩🏻⚕️
☀️ When I get back from holiday one of my goals of to practice what I preach and get back into meditating for 10 mins a day, which I have totally let slide since I started work, and I probably need the time to reset now more than ever ❤️
On Call Emo
Now that I have some spare time whilst awaiting my results, I started reading non-exam books again. Because I'm obviously not emo enough 😂, the top of my reading list is an autobiography written by a neurosurgeon who was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer at the age of 36, just before he was due to graduate as a consultant.
It is a beautifully written book, thoughtful, as Paul searches for the meaning in life, starting from literature, moving on to medicine, and finally in the wake of his own mortality. Even though I knew he died before I bought the book, I still cried when I got to that part, that's the testament of his prose and how moving his story is.
I find it especially resonating now that I am looking after the Gynae Oncology ward, and am looking after sometimes patients much younger than myself, with advanced stages of cancer. Some of my patients are the strongest and loveliest people, and I admire their grace and resilience when faced with such illness.
The meaning of life is what we make of it, and the values we pursue in our own lives.

Every aesthetic practice is a little different. It all depends on when your target demographic uses and engages with Instagram. For us it's around lunchtime 1-2PM EST when doctors are on a lunch break scrolling through their feed.

The time is now. 😍 I spotted this on my walk to work today. I thought it was fitting for this week's posts on mindfulness, and decreasing stress. When we are enjoying our present, we are not worried about the past or future.
So much going on today! Seeing patients at STR!VE, a great talk on low carb diets by our @strive4ugr PA, Christine Khamis, for Wellness Wednesday, and then I head to recording for TV segments on our upcoming Lifestyle Expo at Devos Place. And, of course, the start of #artprize9 ! 🙌😀❤️🎨
"Everything is happening right here!" Have a great Wednesday!
Medycyna estetyczna to dział coraz prężniej rozwijający się w naszym kraju. Ale warto wiedzieć, ze nie ma żadnego prawnego uregulowania, kto może wykonywać te zabiegi 😌i w efekcie rośnie grupa nielekarzy podejmujących sie wykonywania zabiegów z obszaru medycyny estetycznej. Wykonują bo wciąż, są pacjentki chętne skorzystać z ich usług. Nie wystarczy dobrze znać, anatomię, by wykonywać zabiegi, ale trzeba umieć poradzić sobie z ewentualnymi powikłaniami, od razu w gabinecie. Kosmetyczki, pielęgniarki czy wróżki, nie są w stanie tego zrobić i w konsekwencji pacjentki trafiają do lekarzy, którzy musza naprawiać popełnione błędy. Oczywiście zdarzają się także młodzi lekarze, nie przygotowani do zabiegów, które oferują, dlatego polecam dokładne sprawdzenia miejsca oraz osoby do której udajemy się na zabieg. Bo chcąc polepszyć swój wygląd, może okazać się, ze uzyskamy przeciwny efekt i problemy zdrowotne 😌 a wszystkim wykonującym zabiegi powinna przyświecać zasada- przede wszystkim nie szkodzić! 👩🏻⚕️#lekarz#lekarski#doctorlife#medycyna#estetyczna 👩🏻⚕️
#September is #prostatecancer awareness month. 14 million men are living with prostate cancer. In the #US alone 1:8 men will be diagnosed! Preventing complications from cancer requires early screening. For prostate cancer screening is simple -- a yearly blood test called PSA and digital rectal exam. The exam is really not as bad as it looks. Can you imagine how much poking and prodding will occur if you do have #cancer ? The exam and labs are quick and can save your life. Screening is recommended as early as age 40 if you have a family history. The rest of us can start between age 45-50.
There's someone in this family who doesn't often make an appearance on my feed, my Joshua Ryan. He works ridiculously hard. He doesn't ask for acknowledgement and he rarely complains about his 80-100 hour work weeks, lack of time off, minimal pay, and the sacrifice of not seeing his family and specifically his children as often as he would like. Because of his lack of complaining and his carefree attitude (which is a lot of what drew me to him years ago), I often forget that he is up close and personal with very real suffering every day. I forget, until nights like last night, when he comes home so affected by the trauma he dealt with that he can't hold back tears. He can't unsee the absolutely sickening evidence of an infant that was severely abused and mistreated by its own mother. We live in a world of darkness and hatred and sin, but Josh is blessed to be a small light in this dark world. These doctors so many see as stone-faced, money greedy people, they are just men and woman educated to the fullest. They may seem, at times, desensitized to the plight of their patients but that is only because to break down in the midst of the trauma bay (that you are running) could and would put the care of other people at risk. I am in awe of my husband. I could not function witnessing that kind of horrific thing regularly. It is hard enough to hear about it. I pray that child is wrapped up in someone's arms right now, feeling loved and safe and I pray that someday, they feel the love of their Heavenly Father's arms holding tight to them. And I pray for the doctors, nurses, and techs alike that are on the front lines. I only get glimpses into the challenges of their profession, but I couldn't be more proud of my husband. #doctorlife#residency#mylove
There is currently a small measles outbreak in Victoria 😱 WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW (please tag friends especially with kids so they can know too- this is IMPORTANT). Measles can make people very unwell with fever, nasal congestion, watery eyes and rash. It can be lethal due to complications. In Australia kids get a Measles Mumps Rubella vaccine at 12 months and a second booster vaccine (with chicken pox in it) at 18 months IF they are immunised. Kids under 12 months who haven't yet had the vaccine are at high risk of infection in the current outbreak. More on the vaccine and the nitty gritties coming soon I promise- I'm working on a blog for you guys on vaccinations and herd immunity to explain it for you. This outbreak is close to my work and it has me shaking in my boots- honesty. Measles isn't just "measles, it'll be fine"- people can get very sick, epidemics can occur and people can die. If you're concerned about potential exposure you can check this site (https://www2.health.vic.gov.au/Api/downloadmedia/%7BEE3E248A-013A-4DBB-9553-52564E2D5D75%7D) to see if you've been at the areas the infected people have been to on the same dates. This is a highly contagious illness. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE MEASLES and are attending your GP OR ED CALL AHEAD and inform them so we can isolate you and put a mask and reduce the risk of spread. Please tag whoever is relevant 🙌🏾, I can't harp on about the importance of vaccination and preventing spread with a condition like this. It's not "just measles" trust me 😳
