Hey everyone, just a quick update on one of the gifts I got for my wife this Christmas which has been a huge hit: Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor Ice Cream and Gelato Maker Don’t let its small size deceive you. This is a great little ice cream maker. First a little background. My wife is pretty difficult to please when it comes to ice cream. For the most part, Haagen Daaz, Ben & Jerry’s, and the […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Recently, I’ve been talking about Sleep Hygiene, mostly in regards to Sleep Apnea. However, today I wanted to talk about something a little different — Weighted Blankets. Weighted Blankets? Yea. As long as I’ve known my wife, she’s had problems sleeping for any long period of time. Over the course of any given night, she wakes up at least a few times, and it usually takes her awhile to […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today, “Let’s Talk About the SECURE Act“. The SECURE Act I mentioned it before a little while ago in a previous post. However, it just recently passed through both Congress and the Senate, and Trump signed it into law this week. There is a lot of little things in this act, but long story short, the general public is behind in regards to retirement. This act is going to […]

Hey everyone, this post is a combination of Medicine Monday and Whatever Wednesdays. This post is just a “Quick Update“. Quick Update First things first, I’m getting more used to using the APAP mask.

For example, if I get at least 5-6 hours with the mask, I don’t feel horribly tired. If […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today is just going to be a short post about “Uncomfortable“. Uncomfortable? Yea. I’ve talked about it before, but medical training is almost a constant state of being uncomfortable. 3rd year of medical school is kind of like a microcosm for the whole doctor experience. It’s the first experience of this where you do a few weeks in multiple different rotations. Just when you think you’re finally beginning to […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays… on Tuesday. Today is just a short post to explore “What is gustatory rhinitis?”. Gustatory Rhinitis? Yea. It’s kind of funny, but ever since I can remember, whenever I ate too much I would start sneezing and my nose would start running. I never really understood why. It’s kind of becoming a running joke between my wife and I because whenever I start sneezing after we eat she would know […]
