One thing about finals fast coming up is that people's true personalies tend to shine through. Medics are notoriously competitive and in a significant proportion of cases just plain nasty.

Wards are full of interesting patiens with aortic stenosis ad interstital lung disease causing fine inspiratory crackles. And there are some students who after finding these patients will tell everyone else so they can benefit. And there are those who will keep it to themeselves.

Tea and Coffee

Going to the local library equals librarians bringing you big steaming cups of tea or coffee. Priceless.

Statistically the FM will pass the written paper.

Just three more weeks, then Australia (elective time)

You heard!

The fuddled medic is back, mainly due to being unable to do any work this afternoon and decided to restart the blog.

This is bad news, because finals, yes FINALS are in three weeks, three weeks on Monday in fact.

Generic, oh no FM, thats terrible news! Well yes it is. And any kind words of encouragement would be appreciated.

But anyway, besides going to extra revision sessions and the clinical skills centre to practice ABPIs amongst other things she's still managing two and a bit hours of exercise a week and hopefully, finding time to write.

This will probably involve posts such as "A Day in the Library," or "An evening of learning of interstitial lung disease."
