I'm sitting here trying to avoid working on my thesis anymore and I thought I would give it a run with another post. It has been a very long time since I have even checked this, so I certainly don't expect anyone to really be following it. There is something cathartic, however, about just writing something down sometimes.

Things have really progressed since my last post and I am at the verge of submitting my application for Residency. Needless to say, it's been quite a long journey to this point, but mostly it's been enjoyable. Certainly I have much of the journey left to make, but it with be as an MD, something that I imagine will be better than being a medical student. I expect the work to be harder, which is okay.

With my bit of ADD, I am looking forward to a change in pace and scenery, but have no idea what that new setting will be. Perhaps the scene will not change so much, just the circumstances, which is also okay.

So here's a post to renewal!

I've just read your earliest posts about the reason for this blog's title being that you think toxic megacolon is 'one of the coolest complications of a disease'. Hopefully you have found this out from patients by now, but as someone who has had it, resulting in the need for emergency surgery and a long and uncomfortable recovery, I didn't see it that way myself. Still, as long as you get some enjoyment out of it, great!

I am sorry you have had the experience that you have, but my take on toxic megacolon is in name, more than fact. I don't wish the condition on anyone, I just think it is a cool name.

The purpose of this blog is to blow off steam/randomly post thoughts about things I experience in medical school. As you can see, it is not even used that much. To take any offense to anything posted here would be silly.
