This would solve the problem of my constantly misplacing my keys, and I am pissed as hell that apparently my Moderna vaccine didn't take the right way or something.
"Gives you superpowers" is right up there with "taco trucks on every corner" on my list of totally fantastic outcomes that some people inexplicably consider a bad thing.
Do you have any idea how many headaches we could avoid here at the office with connecting to our medical record system if we were all our own personal hotspots?


Maybe the booster.
And now Magneto is trending. I love it here sometimes.

In honor of #Pride, a handy guide in the use of the f-slur historically levelled at gay men

Are you gay?

If yes, you may use that word around other gays who do not mind that word. (I am not one such gay. Sorry about that.)

If no, then never. Not ever.
I would further suggest that, even if you are gay, you should strenuously avoid using that word around your straight friends, because that may give them the erroneous impression that they are also free to do so.

Which, as I said, is literally never true.
In general, I have found a policy of under no circumstances whatsoever using any kind of slur against a group of people to which I do not myself belong has served me well. Having lightning-bright lines around such words offers helpful clarity.

Since a couple of people have asked, here is my general approach:

1) making it clear from the start that I am not trying to change their mind or make them feel pressured, but to hear what their concerns are so they might feel comfortable considering for the future
2) addressing specific concerns (vaccine seems so new, can’t miss work for side effects, concerns about misinfo they’ve heard, etc) respectfully

3) making a point of saying their own health is important to me, not just because they happen to be a patient’s parent
4) telling them that providing this information is an important part of my job, and that I’m glad to spend as much time as they need to discuss everything that makes them worried about getting vaccinated

Did I cry when they played “Say Something”?

No. Barely.
I’m not even mad that the only Dua Lipa they’ve played is “We’re Good.”

This is absolutely a real medical problem, which I learned about from the book of medical information I read for a class in my school where I learned medicine, and the medicine teacher 100% taught me about when uteruses just get rejected like that.
Those of you with testicles are advised to hold onto them firmly for 72 hours after each dose of Covid vaccine, to lower the risk they will explode spontaneously.
You can always tell the rejected uteruses at TJ Maxx, because the tag has been snipped.

A few weeks ago, I started asking my BIPOC patients and parents if they've been affected by racism, or if there were racism-related health problems I need to be providing care for. It's not something I was ever trained to do, and I regret it took me this long to start.
I start by acknowledging that the question might feel awkward, but that I'd rather ask an important question awkwardly than not at all. Similarly to when I started asking about gender identity as a matter of routine, the more I ask the less awkward it feels.
Every single time thus far, my BIPOC patients have been surprised that I've asked, because nobody has ever asked before, but told me how glad they are that I did. Again, I deeply regret it has taken me this long.

I love this badass entrance
I will never ever ever be 1/10th as spectacular as Regina King. I am breathless.
I am already loving the realness this show is bringing.
