While I do appreciate hashtag campaigns to bring awareness, I need you to all know that IG isn’t real life. You can’t verify anything on instagram. It’s important to represent yourself authentically always, in all aspects of life, but sometimes people don’t. I definitely do get annoyed when a chiropractor writes “neurologist” on their profile, not to mention the countless student accounts with “doctor/DO/MD” in their username before they’ve earned the title. 🙄 There are PAs who have been up front about their title but followers somehow still chastise them for lying about being a doctor (ha, what?). I’ve also seen full on witch hunts to find out which medical school two little bears (now a deactivated premed account) got into and others who need to know which residency program other accounts got into.🕵🏻♀️My question is why? Does it matter? Why does it matter to you? Please do NOT mistake popularity for success. Read that again because it’s important. DO NOT MISTAKE POPULARITY FOR SUCCESS. 👏🏼 Most accounts on IG are inspiring and wonderful, but remember most are students, residents, and fellows. Even attending accounts can get it wrong (Ahem, that’s not how you do chest compressions 🤦🏻♀️). I overall love several accounts, but if you take what is posted as the gold standard in medicine then you’ve misunderstood what it means to be a true scientist. It’s also scary for patients. Verification of everything happens with governing medical organizations like @accpchest
and of course the medical boards of each state. Want to verify a doctor? Use those resources👩🏻⚕️ Want to verify a post about medications or medical facts? Go to google or pubmed and find a journal 📓 Want to find some inspo? IG is good for that 😉 Free your mind of seeking reality in social media and just enjoy it for what it is.

A lot of patients think allergy season is over.. but it’s not! Fall season (yay!) is when weed pollen predominates and causes the typical allergy symptoms like the tickle in your throat, itchy eyes, and other annoying symptoms. Stay tuned for foods that cross react with weed allergies that could be causing an itchy mouth. In the meantime, I’m thoroughly enjoying my favorite season!
Cheers to Golden Weekends and Popsicle Prosecco ✨
What an interesting day. My dad got pretty significant altitude sickness, so we came down from elevation to stroll around Breckenridge for the day. Clara, who may also have been effected, threw up in the car (in my hands). Like a real trooper, she never cried and we ended up having a pretty fun day. And a sweet boutique visit after possibly the best margarita I’ve ever had (double danger). 🔹Gotta roll with the punches and always see the light!🔹
DR MOM TIP: kids vomiting -if they don’t have a fever and/or severe abdominal pain, it’s probably pretty short lived and viral -monitor for dehydration -encourage sips of water and/or diluted Gatorade -feed them when they are hungry again, but don’t worry if they don’t want to eat for most of the day. When they do, keep it bland. -they may also develop diarrhea
-provide reassurance and do not freak out
-wash your hands!

New hair for the fall 🍁or should I say ICU followed by multiple inpatient rotations. 💉💊🏥I’m still holding in there (Incase anyone was wondering) by identifying habits that may lead to burnout. Lack of self care was something I have identified for myself to be a tell tale sign to take a wellness break before I start to burn out🙈
Recently I was going to the hospital with half wet hair tied up in a bun, half broken glasses and nails with chipped polish. This was 100% not me. I’m not saying looks are everything but I am used to appearing presentable at the least. It wasn’t until the other day that my senior resident mentioned a new hairstyle can do wonders and even help with confidence. I decided to hold her to it and get my hair done as a wellness task 💁🏽♀️
I am beyond happy with my hair and really enjoyed spending a day in the salon chitchatting away with my hairdresser. This day really helped set the tone for the rest of intern year. I will always put self care first! I can’t wait for next week‘s thai massage. 💕
PS I joined a Fitness challenge for the month of October. I will be sharing my progress. I’m finally in the 140s in terms of my weight loss goals focussing on mostly diet (post to come soon). I’m excited to start toning up now and shed the extra fat.

Today marked a very special day for us at Life Center because we were able to host our very first sexuality group. We are looking forward to helping teens express and understand themselves in a safe space. #🌈 #equality #create #safe #doctoring #selfhelp #teens #group
Every night, Matt and I talk on the phone for up to 2 hours. I tell him about my day, he tells me about his, we discuss current events, our plans, everything we normally would when we were living in the same place 24/7
But now that he's in medical school, I get to hear about things I'd either never thought about (because I'm not in medicine), or issues I've read articles about but couldn't fully understand from the outside. Things covered in his required doctoring seminars. And I'm beginning to understand some problems in medicine a little bit better
I'll explain with a couple of stories he's told me just this week that have really stuck with me
In one of their recent case studies, the female patient said she wasn't feeling well (I don't recall the exact symptoms she was presenting, but they were related to a heart problem which was the actual diagnosis), and they were given a little background too: she was married, involved in her local community, had a job that was a little stressful but that she enjoyed, and was feeling a little more anxious than usual lately. One of the other students in Matt's group, one without any background in psychology, completely ignored the cardiac symptoms and latched onto the anxiety the patient mentioned and immediately said the patient should be told to go to a therapist. Matt (and me, when he described the situation to me later) was appalled and argued with the other student that that was not a good suggestion or use of anyone's time in this particular situation. He told me later that this student hadn't suggested that as an option for the other case they were given where the male patient was describing symptoms of clinical depression. It struck both of us how even med students appear to dismiss potentially serious symptoms female patients present with and recommend therapy as a cure-all, while they don't do that with male patients
In one of his doctoring seminars this week, the students read and discussed an article where the author described a time when a med student was called in by a nurse to look at something unrelated to the reason for the patient's visit....《continued in the comments》
Still at work but thinking about the weekend! 🏥👔
Ok, I’m ready to share. This was my heart. The is torsades de pointes (twisting of the points) decompensating into vfib. Aka sudden cardiac arrest. I’m sharing this because doctoring is hard. It seems like more patients than not mistrust physicians and medicine in general. Why? Because there is this enormous gap between a patients basic but reasonable logic and medical logic. Pro tip: speaking as a patient, the most powerful medicine us doctors can provide is pulling up a chair and bridging that gap. Do it. I promise only good things.

sharing his view of #Physician
after hours and the importance of always being there for his patients. #Thankyou
for sharing your values of serving your patients. ⠀
..... After hours are the hours directly following an event; the extension or continuation of that event in a new form. For example, “After hours at the grilled cheese stand post bar close!” Easily defined, right? Instead of the roudy bar scene and the ol’ college cranberry and vodka, it’s now a street side stand and the best grilled cheese you’ve ever had. As a physician, I hear all too often from other Doctors, “we don’t do that ‘after hours’”. In all my years being involved in healthcare, I never understood that. Just because you have stripped yourself of your white coat does not mean you have stripped yourself of your identity. Your doctorhood does not oscillate. After hours, you cannot wash away the patients under your care, their disease does not sleep. After hours, the desperation and vulnerability of their families is not tucked away in a drawer or placed back onto the shelf. The truth is, Doctors do have ‘after hours’ but our perception of those ‘after hours’ MUST change. These are not hours for denial and evasion. They are not hours to tuck away tasks that are critical to the care of the patient and their families at 7pm, 11pm, 3am. These hours are a continuation of the OATH you pledged to all of your patients. As I always say, the best ability is availability. Now, go be available.

Went on a Starbucks run at 230pm for (half-caf) iced coffee.
SLEEP 😴, it’s a magical mystery that we don’t fully understand. People have all different kinds of sleep issues for different reasons. ——————
👩⚕️DR TIP: mental and physical wellness is key to sleeping well. Eating well, avoiding liquids 2 hours before bedtime, exercising regularly, and limiting alcohol can have a huge impact. But, sometimes this isn’t enough. Melatonin can be an effective and safe place to start for difficulty falling asleep. Meditation can be curative, to retrain your brain at all phases of sleep. Benadryl and many prescription sleep aids can have unintended short and long term side effects. And sensory deprivation helps! I am hooked on white noise, ear plugs, and an oh so sexy eye mask. 🧘♀️💤

how often do you read the ingredients in your food? & what about the ingredients in your skincare? 🤷🏻♀️given that your body can absorb what’s in it as well as what’s on it, it’s time to start checking 🤓and remember that the things listed first are in the largest amounts, so if you can’t pronounce them, think twice about if you want them in your body ... #whatisactuallyinit
Dreaming about my New York vacation and life outside of scrubs... But almost done with my 3rd block of Intern Year 🎉
I’ve learned SO much already about managing patients, how to be efficient with only so many hours in the day. Every day I learn new tricks and tips in the OR. And I’ve survived night float, 28 hour trauma call, and M&M 😂
Stay tuned for my next rotation ( Hint: 👶🏻 )
