Doctor Who?

That would be us, we’re doctors now! A while ago, our compulsory rotation ended, and life has been nothing short of a tumult of mingled emotions. Does that qualify as an excuse for being an absentee blogger? I hope it does. There is absolutely nothing that can prepare you for internship. Its funny how we’re…

Just Do(ctor) It✅

By now you’d know that all of my posts begin with an explanation (irrespective of whether or not one has asked for it) as to why we were AWOL for so long. So for our 9 very diligent readers I’d like to tell y’all , this time we were on a hiatus because we were…

First, do no harm

“ Treat the patient not the diagnosis “ a little something I’ve heard so many times. It isn’t that I didn’t understand what it meant, but what meaning do quotes hold anyway if there isn’t a life experience to throw light on it. So here’s a little something which made those words ever so clear….

The Impasse

I started my emergency medicine posting exactly 8 days ago, and I’ve been bubbling with stories to share. But a galore of experiences in the casualty comes with its fair share of exhaustion. Sitting down has never been more underrated, finding a bathroom break in between the chaos to empty your extremely full bladder only…

Call of Duty

I started my Psychiatry rotation yesterday and I’m here today, with lots of inspiration. That’s almost always a good thing, isn’t it? A posting that is so heart warming that it has inspired yet another blog post. My day at work began at 8AM this morning with me going to the ward and updating the…

Grafting of a Doctor

Bkufgjsdghdghaus!!!!!!!! My bad, I’m just so excited to write about this, my feelings won’t work with my fingers as I type.

Faith it till you make it

College is where you find out who you really are they say, the time when you experiment, when you discover new things about others, about yourself. I wish I wasn’t a stereotype, but alas. There are so many things I’ve learnt about myself but there is one thing I’d like to address in this post….

Humble beginnings

It’s been a month into our “compulsory rotatory internship” as they call it here and there’s so much we have to say about it! It’s going to be a long post. At the outset, apologies from us, for being so irregular on updating our blog. We’ve been busy among other things. But to start with,…

Winter is coming

Yeah, I wish. I wish winter was coming, but then I live in a tropical city. Here it either pours from the sky or the humidity makes my sweat glands pour. Its one or the other. What I meant was a med students’ winter and the gruelling days leading upto it…colder than the chilliest of…
