About This Blog
This blog isn’t necessarily about medicine or patients, it’s about…um, well…I’m not really sure what it’s about.
It’s kind of my journey through life finding a work-life balance…in written form.
Although I very much enjoy blogging on medical subjects, I never started this blog with the intention of becoming the voice of medical students or residents – I just started it to write and to connect. Technically Mind On Medicine began in 2007, but from 2007 until late 2010 it consisted of less than 5 posts. Since late 2010 it has blossomed into a confused blog of sorts – caught somewhere between personal and educational, silly and serious – it’s just a little guy in a big world trying to figure out who it’s mother is.
This is a conglomeration, if you will, of medical education, parenting, stories of exploding Jones’ soda bottles, bad attempts at humor and random projects I’ve devised…with the occasional truly important post thrown in for redeeming measure.
On any given day you might find a silly story about my kids, a random pet peeve, a serious entry or some health information I’ve found to be important. I talked a lot about my journeys in medical school and now I occasionally comment on life in the Ob/Gyn world. Sometimes I write about marriage, or parenting, or merging those things with medicine. My delinquent dogs, home improvement endeavors and DIY projects, and random pet peeves have even made an appearance. One thing I can promise you is that this blog is constantly changing and evolving.
If you’re looking for a blog that talks about the random of mix of things you might discuss with a mom of multiples who is also a doctor over a hot cup of coffee on a random Saturday morning, then Mind On Medicine may be right up your alley.
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. I graduated medical school in 2013, just 6 months after I birthed a couple of babies of my own. My life story up to 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.
