Peripheral Oedema →
Really useful for the causes of peripheral oedema, also give the mechanisms which is handy.
I have never had a hangover last for this long before. Literally. I didn’t drink much over summer because my friends back home don’t drink much, but surely my liver enzymes can’t have depleted this much? My head still has that weird fuzzy feeling to it, my headache has barely gone away and I feel a bit queasy. Kind of like I have motion sickness. Also, artificial light is...
Pottermore has stopped working
In the middle of my sorting. AAAAAAAAAH. I was on question 6, and I picked river, and the button saying proceed stopped working, and now I’m getting an internal server error. Bah.
Today at Medical School we learnt about... me
It was so weird. Last night was a bar crawl so me and many other people were already pretty hungover, which made todays learning that bit more tricky. It was quite complex stuff. But there were two things that happened that interested me. Our first lecture was about somatic sensation and it was quite interactive, we got to poke each other with paperclips and things. It was a really good lecture...
the age of miracles: How to Save a Life →
theageofmiracles: I’ve been meaning to make a post about bone marrow donation for ages, but I wanted to wait until I hit enough followers for it to be hopefully read by lots of people. I’ll also probably reblog this a couple of times in the next month seeing as it’s national childhood cancer awareness month, or…
Got to 8000 words of my dissertation Basically finished my pub crawl costume, just a bit of embellishment needed Felt happy Made a powerpoint of pictures for the walking society to play at the freshers fair tomorrow Moved the router into my housemate’s bedroom to try and improve signal in my other housemate’s room Become a lot more acquainted with virgin media routers Eaten a...
Things I am grateful for
I realise I spend a lot of my time moaning and complaining about my life. But just now I was on facebook, and I saw that a girl I was at school with has been tagged in a photo at Uni, with lots of people I obviously don’t know. And I thought “isn’t she lucky to have made so many new friends at Uni?”. But then I realised that I’ve made lots of friends at Uni too, and...
A plan for today
Right, there is so specific order to these except that number 1 has to occur before anything else is allowed to. I also need to eat at some point, as it is now 12.26 and I haven’t consumed any food yet today. Am a bit worried that my brain is slipping back the other way into dysthymia. Get to 8000 words on my dissertation Watch Doctor Who Start making costumes for next weeks bar crawl...
Because, once again, the Scottish feel that they need to make themselves more special than the rest of the UK. I have rights to be mean about the Scottish because I am one, sort of. Except I was raised in England with English views, and while I do feel affection towards whe country of my hertitage, they can’t half be annoying sometimes. I wish they’d get their freaking...
x1alejandro3x asked: you should put more about your lectures :)
I have no legitimate reason to still be up
This was my to do list for this evening: Notes about CSF Notes about meninges Notes about blood supply of brain Print tomorrow’s lecture Send an email to the committee that have assigned me to make a website despite the fact that I don’t know how to, informing them that I don’t know how to Update tumblr ALL OF WHICH I HAVE DONE!

So for my audit module, I have to do a baseline audit. Which sort of makes sense I guess. We’d do a whole audit but there isn’t really time. Anyway, today we got given the list of audits to choose from. Basically we had to choose 2 and email them to the module leader and then he was going to try and allocate them as fairly as possible. The two I’ve gone for are on warfarin and...

That is how many I have left to write this evening. I want to be at 7000 before the end of the weekend. I was supposed to be on nearly 8000 by now according to my original schedule, but that was being a bit generous so I’m not too worried. The problem is that even though I haven’t been spending my time writing my dissertation, I haven’t exactly been brilliant at doing all the...

Today is a day of new things
I have now been shopping 3 times today. The first was Ikea, then we went food shopping in Lidl. Then we went food shopping in Asda to get all the things that Lidl didn’t have. Good times. Pretty happy with my Ikea purchases. Also, I drove all the way to Nottingham without stalling or getting lost, and made it back. Petrol is 132.9 at the moment, which is cheaper than it has been in a while....
And, in the end We lie awake And we dream of making our escape
Oh the times we have in lectures...
Lecturer: Have you met patients yet?
First year med students: Mmn... yeah
Lecturer: Do you like patients?
Students: *slightly non commitally* Yeah
Lecturer: Do you like ALL your patients
Student: *pause* Noooo
Lecturer: Good, honest students
It’s 2am. I need to go to sleep. Tomorrow I’m driving to Ikea in Nottingham, which is nearly an hour away, and it’ll be the first time I’ve driven my car since last Saturday, and Ikea’ll be rammed because it’s the weekend and the only time most people can go. Ugh. I love Ikea but I’m not entirely sure if I have the energy. Also it’s only me and one...
Examining the Cranial Nerves →
This is a really good descriptor I found of the cranial nerves and how to examine them. Thought I’d share it with the world.
