Feet First

“It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.” - Sir William Osler

    Having been seduced by the likes of Facebook and Twitter, I have come to realize that maybe I would blog more if I settled for shorter posts. I feel the need to do this, just to share the madness of actual medical practice. Here is one actual conversation from yesterday:

    Patient: I'm depressed. I think maybe it's because of global warming.

    Me: ...um. Are you doing stuff about it? Like recycling, and trying to drive less?

    Patient: yes, but I still feel sad. Maybe I need medication.

    Me: Maybe you should turn off the news.

    Depression in search of a cause?

    In the seventies everyone was worried about the population explosion and the nuclear threat. It's always something.

    I'm doing a catch up and giggling away (there appropriate, of course). Being a Brit I totally agree that gravy is one of the major food groups, and I could add to the list of desserts.

    I dare say I'll not be able to find you on Facebook, but if you get a request from someone in Wigan, who claims to be in a relationship with Galloway's Bakery and has a cover photo of being intimidated by seagull, that will be me.
