Day one of having my leg in an air cast down, way too many left to go. Ugh!!! 😩😫 Thankful it's not worse and TRYING to look on the bright side, but still pretty frustrated. The fact that my leg hurts like all hell after having the doctor poke and prod it yesterday doesn't help! 😂 If anyone has any tips or tricks for making life with a boot more comfortable - I'm all ears!!! One day at a time!!! ☀️
If you have ever wondered how I can manage having a baby in medical school- this is the reason right here. Not sure how I would survive without Scott. Thanks for doing so much daycare duty, changing diapers and singing silly songs that never rhyme. Happy first Father's Day, we love you!! 💙
Only did a short run this morning wearing my KT tape, but had much less pain than I was expecting! Planning to see how it feels tonight and tomorrow, and if all is well, start back on my couch to 10K program!! 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️
Pocisz się i masz zaczerwienioną skórę ? Czujesz kołatanie serca ? W zimie masz ochotę wyjść na mróz w bikini ? A może wręcz przeciwnie... Twoja skóra jest sucha,szybko się męczysz i czujesz się ociężały umysłowo. Dodatkowo jako kobieta nie możesz zajść w ciążę bądź masz zaburzenia miesiączkowania. Najprawdopodobniej masz problemy z TARCZYCĄ ❗️#10najciekawszychstrukturanatomicznych
Będzie o jednej z najciekawszych i myślę,ze nie przesadzę jeśli powiem 'najmodniejszej' chorobie ostatnich lat- CHOROBIE HASHIMOTO 🔝
🔸Przewlekłe NIEBOLESNE immunologiczne zapalenia tarczycy- dochodzi do rozwoju niedoczynnosci tarczycy w wyniku obecności przeciwciał anty-TPO- p/tyreoproksydazie i anty-Tg-p/tyreoglobulinie. Występuje tez naciek limfocytowy na tarczycy #tarczyca 🔸choroba atakuje głównie kobiety po 45 rż, ale w ostatnim czasie widać tendencje do przesunięcia granicy poniżej 35 rż. Nie znamy dokładnie przyczyny choroby Hashimoto. Jak na każda chorobę autoimmunologiczną wpływ maja czynniki genetyczne, środowisko i stres #chillout 🔸jak przy każdej niedoczynnosci tarczycy należy przyjmować tyroksynę w dawcę wyliczonej zgodnie z masą ciała. Co 3-6 miesięcy należy wykonać badanie ilości tyroksyny we krwi #labolatory 🔸zdecydowanie większe dawki przysługują dzieciom, młodzieży i kobietom w ciąży. Jest to o tyle istotne,ze duze niedobory hormonów w młodym wieku mogą doprowadzić do upośledzenia umysłowego #hashimoto 🔸co znamiennie należy pamiętać,ze sam lek jeszcze nie daje poprawy stanu zdrowia. Bardzo ważna jest dieta bogata w błonnik, białko, nienasycone kwasy tłuszczowe, a uboga w gluten czy laktozę. Mamy jeszcze tajemnicze słowo: GOITROGENY. Osoby chorujące na tarczyce na pewno wiedzą, o co chodzi,ale na temat tych produktów chciałabym napisac kolejnego posta także czekajcie cierpliwie.... mam nadzieję,ze trochę przybliżyłam Wam temat Hashimoto. Będę tu teraz zdecydowanie częściej,wiec do następnego razu 👌🏻😎👌🏻 #f4f#igerspoland#igerswarsaw#igersworldwide#studybuddy#stayfocused
Enjoying a relaxing night in with Greg, Joey and Meow Mix! 😁 I finally am having less pain in my shin, so tomorrow I am taping up with my brand new KT tape and taking Joey for an easy run! Praying that the pain stays low 🙏🏼 and planning to spend a good amount of tomorrow icing, resting and foam rolling 🙃 Wish me luck!!! 🤓
Over the last few months I have really gotten into Bullet Journaling, and my BuJo has become my lifeline. I LOVE making lists and charts, but I always used to lose them or have them in a million different places. Now I can keep everything together 😁 My friend Christy Br and I are putting together a Bullet Journaling group on Facebook so that we can all share spreads and inspirations, and friends who are wanting to get started have an easy place to ask questions. So if you bujo, or want to get started with it, please let me know and I'll get you added to it! 🙌🏼
As my first year comes to a close I am going to take a moment to tell my story and hopefully it will take some doubt out of your mind. You CAN do this.
In high school I never struggled as far as grades went, I was a straight A student I didn't have to study, was 9th in my class. I went to a smaller university, close to home. I began off the bat with sophomore level classes thanks to AP credits. Except 7:30am Gen Chem with a professor that basically taught he liked Bourbon in his coffee in the mornings, turned out the way you might imagine. My mother had to come physically remove me from my bed after that 'C' posted. Not only had I never made less than a B ever...my type A personality lost it at the thought of this keeping me from getting in medical school.
In June of 2012 I started working in our local ER because as my mother told me "you need to get up here and make sure this is what you want to do". Well I thought at the time I'd do psych, but quickly fell in love with the fast paced lifestyle of emergency medicine. I juggled two full time jobs (ED tech and Scribe) with full time college. Spent many a 48 hours awake. But I always was doubting myself, thinking I wasn't smart enough to do this, I was so self conscious about telling anyone what I was planning to do, because I knew they'd think I was shooting too far. Even had a friend's father go as far as to ask me "would you want to know your doctor made a C in chemistry?"
So I worked harder. Learned practical things at work like how to read X-rays, CTs, labs. How to know that this patient had a bleed and was not an overdose. How to cope with losing patients. How to speak to patients. How to love them. I learned what worked for our ER and what didn't. And my plan has always been to return there. By the end, my GPA was a seemingly pitiful 3.5 and my MCAT and test anxiety also proved to be hurdles. But I did it, I got in, and I am about 14 correct test questions short of kicking year one where it counts. All that to say, never ever let someone doubt you, most importantly yourself. You may have to hustle a little, probably pull a few all nighters, but your goals are well within your grasp.
I might be a little biased seeing that I am married to one of these people, but you really cannot put enough value in a good medic. And being from an area of the country where I feel the education for EMTs is a little lacking you'll find me advocating for better opportunities for them. Finding better CEU classes, offering to teach classes pro bono... they are the first lines and an invaluable commodity. Making sure you have your best minds and eyes out there leads to successful patient outcomes. So get out there and thank an "ambulance driver" (but don't call them that....they hate it) 😜🚑
Attempting to be productive during clinic since we have so many canceled appointments! I have been SLACKING on my study schedule for June 😂
GOOD NEWS! Today my shin has NOT been hurting since I woke up! I'm going to continue with my schedule of rest, ice, compression and ibuprofen as well as foam rolling until I have been pain free for a week! 🙏🏼 Then I'll slowly get back to exercising - recovering from an injury is FRUSTRATING! 😫
