Disclaimer: Don’t take my advice.

If I had to summarise quarantine till now, it would be me trying out a bunch of new things only to find out I’m not good at anything. Yesterday, in a feeble attempt to educate myself in some things financial/economic, I set out to find a podcast about money. This might be my last few…

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…

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. I just came back home after doing a superficial thickness skin graft all by myself, no biggie. Just kidding. Suchabigdealohmygod. I am doing my surgery rotations right now. Two days a week we have…

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,…

It won’t be soon before long

With only 4 months of med school left I still feel like it was yesterday that I was the dreamy eyed 8 year old who without a speck of doubt said “I want to be a doctor.” The journey so far has been eventful to say the least. “Your tenth boards are very important” they…

Pen Harry met Paper

We left the store hours later, Our purses a little lighter our bags a little heavier Walking back with a childlike glee A lot of zeal we foresee In green and red and blue they come To break the black and white humdrum (of the textbooks) If you were to walk by our spot in…

Maybe you should see a “real” doctor

It’s been raining for a few weeks now, the trees look green, its gloomy outside, the air is moist with the smell of petrichor. Perfect weather for a cup of coffee and inspiration for a blog post eh? But apart from voices in my head coaxing me to slumber, my mind is blank. Writers block…
