Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Aug 1, 2013, 11:12 AM

When I put my lab coat on in the mornings, it always feel akin to strapping on a suit of armor.

Not to defend against my patients, of course.

Disease, I guess. And an occasional sense of futility when patients are non-compliant with their treatment plans, or continue to smoke, etc.

Another day ahead. Hope it brings good things...

I love you all...

I don't know what I would do without you.

13. Sorry, I slept through your very trying afternoon.


Perhaps this will give you a warm and cuddly feeling to carry you through the rest of your afternoon.

8. I wondered about that...

You must see all kinds of ailments that are contagious. How do doctors avoid catching everything they treat?

I know from working in an elementary school.... I'm always using the disinfectant and sanitizer! If a kid sneezes, I call the custodian to disinfect the area! LOL I'm kind of germ-aphobic though. I don't get sick very often though! Must have built up a "resistance" over the years.
