    Just realised how moist imperial really is today after about 4 months being here.
    Some people are so obsessed with getting good grades themselves they want to derail you (whilst being in the same group as you lol).
    Harsh!

    Before I started medicine I heard stories about this, and people sending each other wrong revision notes to try and throw each other off, generally being really unhelpful, lying about work, keeping past papers to themselves..

    Turns out Glasgow has managed to avoid these ****ers.

    People help each other.

    To have even been born in the first place is just ludicrously fortunate.

    Me being alive I can handle... but the possibility of procreating seems mind boggling!

    I think it's the same everywhere sadly.

    On a side note- does anyone ever think about how lucky we are to actually be alive? This sounds so weird but learning about all this stuff just makes me think I could drop dead any minute.
    I definitely worry a lot more about people I care about dying than I ever did before I started medicine.

    Yeah same.

    Also should you actually become ill you obviously spend hours reading up every little thing about it. Definitely doesn't help matters.

    I had a case of someone who'd recovered from a functional blindness, the Doctor said such a presentation was quite unusual.

    hmm, I don't know an essay actually has substance so I imagine I'd be more motivated to start. Not done a psyc presentation yet either.

    If you do A&E in a 'diverse' area you'll get a fascinating insight into somatization syndromes from around the world...

    'All over body pain off legs' (normally accompanied by a worried son) is a classic.
    It is less fascinating when you're the one who needs to get them out of the hospital because you know that admission is genuinely not the answer or you've conceded defeat but chances of the medics/psych accepting are vanishing (but not impossible!) though.

    I need to stop getting into arguments on facebook. Somebody just called me out on using PubMed as a source saying it was unreliable because she'd never heard of it and that NHS choices was far better because it had NHS in the name, if I even attempted to discredit NHS choices as a relatively poor source apparently I was criticising the entire NHS. FML.

    But do you look as though you know how to brick it?

    Facebook should only be used for important arguements. For example - what time to meet and pub and which pub. Or to write drunken/im stressed statuses.

    No, that's the worst part. You'd think they'd take my word for it being a layperson.

    Whenever I venture into one of these "debates" it always ends up with me raging at how stupid people are. I was literally going around in circles while she said she had a better understanding while looking at all these different random sources off google and my use of only one website (PubMed) was lacking.

    I don't think you succeeded in explaining to her what PubMed is. It is very likely she was so thick it is impossible to explain to her.
