God my dog/baby voice is SO annoying!!! But at least someone’s happy to see me…
(Ps I clearly have no idea how to orient videos on the iPhone since this is all over the place.)
This semester I’ve become a number one hand fan. They’re so great! They do everything for us! I love you hands.
I’ve recently started having what I think are graduation induced nightmares where my hands are damaged, paralyzed, or just disappear overnight. But seriously, if I lost my hands my career would be over!!! Even if I just like broke an arm I’d have to take a leave. It makes me feel so vulnerable to injury and a little paranoid. But it’s not like I’d just be like in pain, it’d be like, I can never catch a baby again and have to go back to school. DISASTER!
(Can you tell I haven’t seen my therapist in 2 weeks?)
This is actually what my dad says about doing pelvics. He broke his right wrist as a kid and has some limited range of motion that makes performing pelvic exams difficult so he could never have become an OB/GYN.
(My dad’s an MD for anyone who thinks it is gross to talk to one’s father about pelvic exams. It was a discussion when I was talking about what NP specialty to choose, and I had never really given thought to how current or future physical limitations might hold back or change my career. )
I sat here too long.
Yep! Life doesn’t end when you finish exams…
