Letting Go of Past Grievances

Hello, and welcome to Medical Mondays! This week’s topic is less on the super nitty-gritty science, and more focused on what they (don’t ask me who “they” is) call “soft sciences.”

Just to preface, I’m currently rotating in an inpatient psych unit that mostly deals with drug/alcohol detox and suicidal ideations/attempts. I feel horrible for …

Diet

Hi everyone, and welcome to Medical Mondays!

I’m super excited about this one–not just because I love food/it’s an extremely important subject, but also because it’s the first time I’ve ever had anyone guest-post on my blog! :O

Medical Mondays

I’m sure by now that we are well aware of my love for food and fitness…but aside from my monthly-ish reflections, I don’t tend to go into much detail about what takes up most hours of the day in my life.

Part of this is because I’m worried that everyone will be bored out of …
