My Way


It’s a new year so I’m going to let you in on a little secret… I stress about every post I place here.  I sweat and I struggle.  I write, delete, write, edit, delete, write, delete, delete, delete, then finally come up with something resembling a post which is worthy of a professional, medical website.  So that is why I post so infrequently.

Sure, at first I tried to condition myself to posting once a week.  I was a new senior resident, about to graduate;  I had a lot to talk about.  Then, as the year progressed, time became a factor.  I was in the middle of interviewing, finishing requirements, and thinking about moving my brood cross-country which entailed packing and moving the accumulation of 13 years’ of stuff and memories.  Then, once I got settled, I did have some fodder for posts being a new attending and everything.  But now, it’s back to the sweating…

See, I’m going to let you in on another secret…. I’m just a simple country E.D. doc.  I’m not an academic.  I’m not a politico.  I just go to work and take care of patients in my little corner of the world.  And, I write about those encounters;  cases that make you stop and think a bit, patients that are a reminder that we are linked by common themes, and those particular cases that teach you that there is still so much more to learn.

This is what I write about.  And, I’m ok with that.  I hope you are, too….

I’m finishing the week here in Bonita Springs, attending the NAEMSP conference.  Boy, do I have some work to be done in my area.  And, along with that I am sure some new themes for future blog posts.
