doin it all..

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Its been a phenominal week..but ohh so tiring. I'm in family practice and internal medicine this week (same suite) and I am pretty much doing things all by myself. Today alone I hooked up an ekg, hooked up a holter monitor, did a hearing test, roomed patients, went over medications, assisted (or tried) in treadmill stress tests, talked with patients (and people LOVE to talk lol) ran faxes and saw a bone marrow biopsy. I really am loving all of this but MAN ALIVE by the end of the day im spent! After my day today, I went to the gym and made it through my 4 miles. At first, i wasnt sure i would be able to do it because i was hungry but i powered on through. I also had a thought as i was driving home. I am REALLY proud of myself. I never would have thought 2 years ago that I would be where I am right now. I wasnt doing any sort of activity, i weighed 185 pounds, pretty much failing out of college, not really caring about my future and just partying and eating and eating and eating. And now? I am a completely different person. Yeah, i still have my issues with food and I still fall every now and again but its not like before. I definitely have changed my life for the better. I hope you all had a fabulous day..i know i did. love you ALL!

    You are doing fabulously! I see how hard the MAs work in my clinic--they really have to juggle a lot of tasks at once, plus keep cheerful since they're the ones who interact with the patients the most! So kudos to you for choosing such a hopping yet needed position! I can't wait to hear where you decide to go after your externship! And woohoo on the 4 miler after work! That truly shows how much dedication you have to your healthier lifestyle. Awesome job!!!

    This post made me emotional. To think you were where you were two years ago is unbelievable to me. How could that be possible?

    I am SO HAPPY you have found a different path. I am also VERY HAPPY that you are able to recognize the difference and how much happier you are now!
