"Mau jadi Dokter!!" begitu teriak si Bocah yg masih duduk di bangku SD saat ditanya Guru kelasnya.
Dalam pikiran si Bocah SD itu, sosok seorang Dokter adalah orang yg baik karena suka menolong orang lain.
Dan Tuhan mengijinkan Spontanitas itu bukan hanya ucapan tapi menjadi kenyataan.. Pada dasarnya dokter hanyalah sebuah title.. sebuah Profesi.. menolong orang lain tidak perlu membutuhkan title atau profesi apapun tapi hanya membutuhkan HATI dan NIAT yg tulus.
Dibalik profesi saya yg adalah seorang dokter, saya tetap hanyalah seorang IBU RUMAH TANGGA yg mempunyai kewajiban mengurus suami dan anak. Memastikan mereka selalu dalam kondisi nyaman dan terpenuhi kebutuhan sehari2nya.
Tidak peduli berapa tahun kuliah untuk bisa mendapatkan gelar dokter, saya pun tetap belajar dari awal saat baru menjadi seorang ibu.
Memiliki anak adalah ibarat memiliki sebuah DUNIA baru yg tidak pernah ada simulasi nya.
Sempat ada dilema antara keluarga atau karir, tapi saya bersyukur karena Tuhan menjawab masalah yg saya hadapi ini dengan begitu sempurna.
Hari ini saya bisa mempunyai bisnis yg sangat menghasilkan tanpa meninggalkan kewajiban sy sebagai seorang ibu rumah tangga!
Tapi yg terbaik dari semua ini adalah bukan hanya saya yang berhasil merubah hidup saya tapi saya juga bisa membantu banyak orang lainnya untuk mendapatkan hasil yang sama.
Kalau saya bisa, kalian semua juga pasti bisa!
I spent some time tonight cleaning out my apartment, doing some laundry, and just ridding myself of clutter (at least some of it) to try to live a more organized life. .
I checked the pockets of my white coat before washing it (it's an extra I have sitting around) and found a handful of tape measure.
For those who don't know, hydrocephalus is a terrible disease. "Water on the brain," or the inability of spinal fluid to flow through its natural river system from lateral ventricles to third ventricle through the cerebral aqueduct to the fourth, and then finally around the brain in the subarachnoid space and around the spinal cord all the way down to the lumbar cistern. This fluid gets either overproduced or blocked, at certain points, or even fails to be reabsorbed into the venous sinus system through little valves called arachnoid villi. As such, sometimes a ventriculoperitone shunt is required, or a third ventriculostomy. .
In neonate (especially preterm less than 30 weeks old, the area near the ventricles called the germinal matrix is underdeveloped and very susceptible to bleed during the stress of child birth. His results in intraventricular hemorrhage, the inciting event for cerebral palsy. It can also lead to hydrocephalus (called post hemorrhagic hydrocephalus). .
The connection? This tape measure is another vital sign for pediatric neurosurgery. We have the fontanelle to get a measure of the pressure inside the head, but our measurement of head circumference tells us the daily pattern or rate of change of the head circumference. Thus, when beyond the our comfort zone, we can relieve the pressure with a shunt or drain, depending on the situation at that time. I used to carry at least ten of these at any given time like they were a stethoscope (I hate to break it to you, but most neurosurgeons don't carry a stethoscope) 💁🏻♂️
I’ve been spending months trying to figure out the best way to utilize my professional IG account. @drsharimarchbein gave me excellent advice - to just start and see where it takes me! As a pediatrician, I hope to share helpful information for parents, friendly reminders for adolescents, and general life tidbits as a wife, mother, and female physician. •
With this inaugural post, I’m excited to share that today I have accepted an offer to start my first [and hopefully career-long] job after residency as a private practice primary care pediatrician in July 2018! I hope to share more on the process via posts and Instastories. Please let me know what you’re interested in learning more about! •

The answer is simple — only if you are having symptoms. 🤔
1. Men over the age of 40 have a natural decline in testosterone.
2. The “normal” range is anywhere from 300-1000.
3. Testosterone can be increased naturally with diet changes, workouts, injections, gels, or pellets.
1. Testosterone is a fountain of youth
2. Replacement helps maintains fertility — actually it does the opposite — your natural T and speed production goes down.
3. It’s safe. It is but there are risks and it’s not for everyone.
I am heading back to Annapolis tomorrow to spend the holiday with my family. I'll be away from Instagram for most of the trip, so I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving, and an extra shout out to everyone working over this holiday making sure everyone else is well cared for ❤️
Is my hair ok? Gee, I hope they like me! Make sure we’re running on time ! Oh you think it a fungus and you want oral terbinafine. Oh wait, IM A F$&@ING DOCTOR NOT A STORE. And no, you can’t have a prescription for antifungals just because you think it’s fungus. It’s pityriasis rosea. #dealwithit#boycottyelp#saysmyderm cc: @mslexi.nicole
The vein of my existence as a doctor. Sometimes it takes me longer to document than actually see a patient. Unfortunately it’s a necessary evil. And when i am done charting I have to go through my tasks and review labs, pathology, imaging, refill scripts and return phone calls. It really does feel never ending. For me though, the second I get to talk to my patients in the office or begin a surgery I forget about the tasks and remind myself why I continue to love being a doctor! #patientlove#gratitude#thankyou

• I’ve been so busy in the past few weeks that today I ended up crying while I was having a shower just because I forgot my towel at the gym 🤯🤯 the fact is that I’m working about 10 hours a day and working out in my lunch break, which means that I have ZERO time to eat all my meals in peace and I always end up running up & down eating without even tasting them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and I looove everything I do 👩🏻⚕️ but today I was running so late that I almost made an accident with my car.. twice.
So I just had to stop. Thanks God I came home earlier than usual tonight and had the time to have dinner with my parents (and tasting my pasta 👩🏻🍳) but I just realized that being a doctor is so hard sometimes. You have to be the person that people trust, and sometimes your health comes just after. I think we all find the balance between private life and work after some years, and seen that I just started this new journey I’m putting myself in it at 100% without even thinking that I need to wash my hair (true story - sorry too much information) but this is just to tell you that hey, it would be fun being a full time blogger/fitness model/ influencer, but I’m just a mess like everybody else in the world 😂 • #doesthismakesense#streamofconsciousness
It gives me immense happiness when i get to read your DMs telling me how i am an inspiration for so many young girls out there. 😇 So i feel like it's my responsibility to raise awareness through my social platform.
I have come across so many girls, anorexic and super-stressed due to their weight gain. Sad truth is that they are more concerned about what people are going to say rather their own health!
Trust me girls, i can totally relate to how you all feel💗i am a plus size myself (thanks to my eating habits🍟🍕). I gain very easily and i do envy all those skinny girls eating everything and not gain an inch of fat! 👀😞
Just like many of you, i get fat-shamed alot. It makes me think how those girls who are dealing with health problems like PCOs etc would feel if i am feeling this bad about myself. But trust me, people do it because something in their life isn't right and they just feel better about themselves by putting others down. You can not shut everybody's mouth , the best thing you can do is ignore the negativity and adopt positivity instead. 🤗 Yes, lose weight only because of your health not because of PEOPLE. Just stay confident and they won't mess up with you again ♥️ And don't stop loving the way you are ♥️💋

I went home to help my disabled sister communicate her concerns to her doctor. No one else in the family thinks my sister can talk because of her disability - my sister is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.
I've spoken to my sister my entire life, she communicates with some sign language, and she has the ability to speak 10 words (yes, no mom, dad, ew, yuck, fuck off...). My sister also utilizes sounds and facial expressions to communicate her feelings. My sister is beautiful - she's my best friend.
When I told my mother that my sister communicated to me that she was in pain, my mother told me I was delusional and that my sister could not talk. My mother refused to take my sister to the doctor. I tried to reason with my mother but still she refused to take my sister to the doctors. Four weeks passed and my sister had still not seen a doctor.
My mother became annoyed with my advocacy for Amber's health and told me to call social services if I was so concerned for my sister. I thanked my mother for her permission and began advocating for my sister.
Mom demanded I get off her property today, she called the police on me. She told me I was trying to ruin her life and that I was delusional and in need of assessment. She told me I was no longer her family, her daughter.
I had no choice but to leave my mother's house, the home I grew up in. I failed helping my sister access support.
Later that day the police called to tell me that if I return home I will be arrested. The police told me that if I contact my mom or sister I would be arrested. My heart shattered. My sister told me she was in pain and I believed her with entire soul.
I haven't seen my sister in two years. Recently, my mom phoned me to tell me that a broken steel rod in my sister's back has slipped down her spine and is pressing on her tail bone.
I feel guilty that I couldn't get her the proper care two years ago. I feel angry my mother refused to take her to the doctor. But most of all I feel the loss of not having seen my best friend, sister, confident... It's been two years and I miss her every second of everyday. I hope she isn't in pain, but I fear she is...it's heartbreaking.

“I deserve this.” I tell myself that every single time I get #boba milk tea to make myself feel better about drinking sugar water. 🤗 #guilty 😭
But I might actually deserve it this time after last night’s call. I was in an orthopedic case⚒ where they were operating on the hip. When they removed the femur, the patient went into pulseless electrical activity (PEA) arrest and code blue 🔵 was called. Luckily, the patient had a pulse after one round of chest compressions. We were thinking that the patient most likely had a fat embolus. It’s essentially globules of fat from the bone getting into the blood and traveling to the lungs. It causes a blockage in the lungs and makes it difficult for the heart to pump. Fat emboli are rare, but it can happen with bone fractures in trauma or orthopedic surgeries. In #medschool , they show you all these fancy fat embolus histology slides, but when it happens in real life, it’s scary. I left the patient intubated and we transferred the patient to the ICU shortly after.
I’m so thankful for the attendings and #nurses on with me last night 🙏🏼. Things could’ve been much worse if it weren’t for them. After the night settled down, one of the nurses made me this honeydew milk tea with boba. I’ll take two, please.✌🏻
