I would assume that the shrink would disclose the matter if he thought it would be a risk to the docs patients (legally obliged to do so here). Only case would be where the psych doesn't know that the patient is a doctor. I'd propably just ask from the colleague and if that doesn't clear it up, I would talk with psych to find out if they know that the patient is a doctor.

How can I improve my focus and work more efficiently?

>> No.11034432

Sleep properly, eat properly, exercise. Understanding things is gold, spaced repetition a good second.

>> No.11034489

I do all those things and my method involves spaced repetition. I also try to understand the things I learn.
However I have trouble focusing and even though I study for long periods of time (five or six hours, often more) I tend to space out a lot which results in me not taking breaks because I feel like "spacing out" already wastes enough time... Sometimes I end up rereading the same paragraph four times because I just lack focus. So I end up studying for six hours but I feel like I haven’t been very productive. How do I fix this?
Other than that I’m highly organized, but I struggle because I take too long to study due to my lack of focus.

Yes, phones and browsing breaks have a bad effect on productivity.

When you take a break to read some shit on internet you stay in focused mode and aren't actually recovering, you just excite your brain with new stimulis.
A good break should be boring and introspective, not about binging informations.

One good way to improve focus is meditation too, try 10-15 minutes a day, a good time is first thing in the morning.

Try 50min/10min, do the hardest shit first thing in the morning, I can personally go for a 1h30 stint in the morning and then decrease to 50 minutes stints and then 25 by mid afternoon and I do one or two 10 minutes stints around dinner.

I have struggled most of my med school years with the workload too, I used to be a complete slacker in school and cruised easily through it, I only began working in first year of med school (there is a ranked exam with 200 places for around 1200 students) but it was more like a sprint, the following years are increasingly harder and you have to find a balance and make efficiency gains.

I had to cut video games, youtube and other shits. I still go on the chans during the weekend to laugh a bit but ultimately I must be quite strict with myself as I'm the addictive/procrastinator type and easily fall into binging.
It gets easier with time if you keep working but it never becomes easy.

Some people in med schools are freaks and have close to edietic memory, other are shameless cheaters, I wouldn't waste my time comparing myself to them.

A better question is why you are prescribed quetiapine. Some insane psychiatrists have taken to prescribing it off label as a sleeping aid. If this is the case for you I’d recommend seeing a new doctor.

>> No.11037865

Yes my psychiatrist prescribes it to me. Whats wrong with using it as a sleep aid if it works really well? Is there bad long term side effects?

>> No.11038067

I would recommend you do your own research. Using any type of mood stabilizer is risky long term. Quetiapine in particular can lead to abuse and subsequent withdrawals along with many other negative outcomes. There have been countless studies and articles written on the perils of prescribing Seroquel for off label uses. It’s a very powerful drug that has some applications, but I personally would absolutely not use it solely for a sleeping aid. There are countless other solutions, many OTC or lifestyle changes, that have next to no risk.

And yes, long term use of quetiapine has been linked to suicidal thoughts, weight gain, cataracts, high blood sugar, and permanent tardive dyskinesia (involuntary muscle spasms).

200mg is on the low side dosage wise. But why on earth you would be taking it if you aren’t suffering from severe bipolar disorder or schizophrenia is totally beyond me.

>> No.11038518

Working hours are long, sometimes stressful, most patients are poor and stupid and you often wonder if you missed something dramatic on this kid last week.
You rarely have the feeling of "curing someone" because a large part of modern medicine is management of chronic conditions.

With internet some people are much more anxious or vindicative too and they see you as the paper pusher to get the imagery/biology they read on Webmd for their self diagnosis (teachers are the absolute worst at this).

Salary wise it's comfy (they make much more in the US than us in Europe though), the status impresses noone at the hospital unless you're really a big shot surgeon doing face transplant or equivalent in other fields.

I personally wish I had less patients and could do more in-depth follow up in my specialty, many patients don't need to simply pop up pills but need to have their lifestyle completely overhauled. Pipe dream in the current system though, gotta reach these quotas.

Frens, my friend with AML might be in remission if his bone marrow biopsy is ok :3333 Also still haven't started volunteering yet, I'm anxious to start :/

It is. Pics are with 50 mm/s. First one we have a wide QRS with negative T waves in almost all leads and ST depression in precordial ones. This masks an eventual MI. Second one we have normal width QRSs without P waves, but this may be because of tachycardia. But the 50 mm/s make it look weird so I'm guessing a supraventricular tachycardia. Might be AVNRT too i think. Third pic we have random P waves and random QRSs which hints that the atria and ventricules follow a rhythm of their own - 3rd degree AV block. Fourth pic has a lot of noise and I don't know if its just a normal ECG with noise or atrial flutter/fibrilation. If it was fibrilation QRSs shouldn't be regular rhythm tho.

After researching toxoplasmosis thoroughly I've come to the conclusion that it's beneficial to have it in the modern society and I'm gonna attempt to infect myself with it under the assumption that I don't have it. Convince me otherwise.
>Research on the linkage between T. gondii infection and entrepreneurial behavior showed that students who tested positive for T. gondii exposure were 1.4 times more likely to major in business, and 1.7 times more likely to have an emphasis in "management and entrepreneurship". Among 197 participants of entrepreneurship events, T. gondii exposure was correlated with being 1.8 times more likely to have started their own business.
>T. gondii has two genes that code for a bifunctional phenylalanine and tyrosine hydroxylase, two important and rate-limiting steps of dopamine biosynthesis. One of the genes is constitutively expressed, while the other is only produced during cyst development.
>Toxoplasma is parasite of cats that uses any warm-blooded animals as intermediate hosts. It is known to induce shifts in behavior, physiology and even morphology of its intermediate hosts, including humans. The lower second to fourth digit ratio (2D:4D ratio) in infected man and women, and higher height in infected man suggest that sex steroid hormones like testosterone could play a role in these shifts. Here, we searched for another indirect indication for a higher postnatal testosterone level, i.e. increased perceived dominance and masculinity in infected men. We showed portrait pictures of 89 male students of which 18 were Toxoplasma-infected to 109 female students. When we statistically corrected for age, men with latent toxoplasmosis were perceived as more dominant (p=0.009) and masculine (p=0.052). These results support the idea that the higher level of testosterone could be responsible for at least some of the toxoplasmosis-associated shifts in human and animal behavior.

It takes a certain kind of person. You'll have to be able to deal with a kind of ambiguity in the treatment. You can't really rely on simple heuristics in most cases unlike in somatic medicine. Clear-cut cases where you diagnose, do an intervention and the contact ends there are fairly rare.

You have to be able to deal with heavy shit, it ain't no dermatology. The patient population can be a bit "difficult" too depending on your exact position and personal preference.

Non-physician fag here.

There's something that is gnawing me since a year ago, when my fiancee passed away.

She was battling breast cancer since two and a half years earlier and weeks before her departure day she went into carboplatinum chemoterapy, who derived into stomach and lower back pains, her skin turned yellowish and she felt weak. Her family tried to give her big amounts of liquids to help her kidneys to work.

When she entered E.R. on the vesper, she was experiencing acute pains, described by her as "8 or 9 out of 10" and she was prescribed with intravenous morphine first and intravenous hydromorphone later because the former didn't help. I gave her a methadone pill (she was taking 3 to 4 methadone pills daily) and after a excruciating blood test extraction and a x-ray imaging, doctors decided that nothing could be done for her, not even trying a dyalisis due to kidney failure.

They told us that they were going to prescribe her something to relieve her pains and warned us that there won't be any resuscitation if she entered into a cardio-respiratory arrest. Needless to say, all that left me in shambles and I can recall many details of that long, sad night.


It has been exactly one year since then. I hope I haven't bothered anyone, if you find my question dumb or hilarious please remember I'm the only one to be mocked, not her.

>even AIDS is way easier to control than cancer
Because there are tons of cancer types while we have only one type of AIDS, so intense research on one subject should be much easier than hundreds.

When it happens, it happens. I don't know what could've caused his disease, he was not a smoker, was in his 50s, exercised regularly but did work twice as much as my mom (besides the private practice, he worked in the pediatric ER too because we needed a bit more money for the house) - too bad he never saw the house completed.

I too get very anxious when I take a CAT scan or X-ray. I remember how much I refreshed my e-mail to see if the results came in and when they finally came and I was clean, it was a huge, huge relief.

2 days ago I found out a business partner of my father has an hereditary hodkin's lymphoma, today I find out a guy I know has alzheimer and he is still in his 20s.

I am worried all this stuff is going to pile up on me and stop me from working and makes feel guilty for not doing enough.

You just have to accept that death is a natural part of life and one day it will come to you one way or another. No points stressing over when and how.

The problem is people these days are so insulated from death that it's very frightening when they realize how close and real it really is. All we can do is relax and hope that we get the chance to die with dignity.

You are fine, nursing is good and if you can prove yourself while you are in the trenches and get back in to school you can go to NP or CRNA which make decent money. Also there are a lot of routes to go to get away from the bedside

>> No.11045905

You're fine, nursing is a good profession you'll start at 50k and can look at making 90-100 when it's all said in done. 110-150 w/ certain advanced practiced degrees.

But also, being a floor nurse fucking sucks ass, I'm a nurse and some days make you want to just walk out and never come back. There's plenty of good days and you get to do a lot of cool shit. For example codes are often handed entirely by nurses unless a doc manages to get to the code. Unofrunately you will do a lot of menial tasks such as pill pushing, lifting patients, wiping asses, bringing them drinks and coffee.
In the end you have a shit ton of job security and if you build your resume/get your masters you will have a lot of options beyond just being a floor nurse. Being a floor nurse is good fun, there's a certain pleasure in the chaos but at some point you'll leave the bedside b/c it gets to be too much.

Btw, in my experience ICU is easiest once you get the complicated machinery down +handling surgeon egos (fuck vascular surgeons) and you have a bunch of time to learn things, best [;ace to start. However the only way you're getting the job is if you either have connections in ICU or worked as a tech in an ICU. ER is funnest but chaotic and vacillates between easy as shit and insanely busy, Med-Surge sucks, it will steal your fucking soul but by god you will develop the greatest time management skills ever. I've done all three. PCU is cool too but I just floated there.

Modern hospitals are a scam, natural medicine is more effective. Why does the FDA have to ban alternative medicines/treatments from use in the hospital when they are proven to not only be more effective than modern treatments but also cheaper?

Being raised by physicians, I ended up liking what they did. I think I posted in some threads the story that made me go into medicine. Short story: I watched my mom save a man with anaphylaxis and then after a few days he came back to thank her for saving his life. So...that satisfaction made me study it. I had no interest in the human body but I eventually did, slowly.

Hated a lot of the disciplines, I'm very hard to satisfy as a student, and I'm very picky. I usually like to study stuff that's on the "surface" and don't like to go deeper into the subjects because they bore me, depends on the student, anon. Passion comes and goes. I was very passionate about IM and once I finished my 3rd year and started surgical specs it got kind of stale because my profs focused on procedures more rather than pathologies.

I have to drop this physics course and take the W.
It's coming out of my sleep. It's coming out of my chem and bio grades. And I'm still not learning the material. If I studied half as hard or as long for chem and bio as I do for this one class I'd have hundreds in both. As it is, I don't study at all for bio and I have a B. That A should be a fucking gimme and I'm doing worse than I ought to because I spend every night past midnight doing the impossible amount of homework between physics and chem.
I would rather take the W and retake this class at a CC. Or even here, but later. Even over the summer. Fuck, I have so many physics credits already I'm not even sure I need this class.
I could have done anything with this time. I could have volunteered. I could have shadowed. I could have done research. I could have taken an EMT course and gotten certified. I should have. I could have killed myself just as hard in my other two subjects and actually excelled in them instead of doing okay in those two and banging my head against the wall in this one.
I stuck it out this far just to see if it was my study habits that were the problem. It probably still is that.
Fuck. Fuckfuckfuck.
She died in my arms last December and I thought I could do all 3 courses while I was still waking up in the middle of the night screaming. I need to take the W and just do chem and bio for now.
I'm worried that'll be a red flag to the admissions committee, but a bad grade will definitely be even worse.
