Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and I didn’t really have a post in mind for this Medicine Mondays post. So this is kind of a random post about “Teething Medication and You”. I thought this would be a short post, but it ended up being long. Teething Medication and You I was at a doctor’s appointment on Saturday and had my blood drawn to check my Cholesterol since it was “borderline” last time. Also, I […]

Teething Medication and You #illumedati

It’s time for another Medicine Mondays Roadmap Update. Pour some coffee, sit back, relax and click on some of these links: Stock Photo From: Pixabay I cleaned up this post a bit for this update since we have a lot of posts to deal with now: I added bullets and made some subheadings and I’m hoping that will make it easier to navigate. You’re a pre-med and want to know about medical school: Talking to Pre-Med Me […]

What is Torticollis? 1
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and this post is probably a little late.

If not Medicine... then what?
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I wasn’t sure what to write about for this week, but since last week I talked about “Why Radiology?, I’ve decided to do another “stream of consciousness” type post to ponder “If not Medicine… then what?” So then… let’s think about it: If I didn’t go to medical school, what would I have done? Well, anything I say here will just be all speculation, but just let me talk […]
