Where’s My Hand Sanitizer?
Today is your lucky day – I have some extremly useful, likely life-saving, information to share with you. Everyone isn’t crazy enough to go to medical school, so it’s a good thing there are bloggers like me to save you from the deadly microbes of the Earth that only the board-reviewing med students know about.
|Those nifty mister things in the produce aisle? Deadly.
If you must grocery shop, wear a Legionella-protective mask.
|Sporothrix-induced ascending lymphangitis waiting to happen.|
|Toxoplasma gondii laden poo.|
|Other than being generally disgusting, they carry Cryptococcus neoformans,
which can give you a nasty meningitis if your immune system’s not in tip-top shape.

I’m an Ob/Gyn resident (that means I went to medical school to become a doctor) and now I'm working like a crazy person to learn my trade before I'm on my own in the wild. Once upon a time I birthed a couple of babies of my own, they're friggin' adorable twin toddlers now. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I only started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
