Hi, my name is Meat (Hi Meat). I've had a weblog since 2007 and recently I hit rock bottom and started writing on it. I've come to terms with it and finally admitted I have a problem.

Hard crowd. Sorry, tough crowd
We have actors come in, pretend to be patients, and give us bullshit feedback about our empathy levels. It's pretty asinine so when my buddy saw a patient with erectile dysfunction he said, "that must be hard for you...or not". He was thrown out of the room. Later, a portrait of him will be hung in our hallowed halls.
I started this before I got into med school, then characteristically didn't do shit with it for the first year and a half while in med school, and now I'm back with a vengeance...for probably a week before I get bored.
*Note, I am not a doctor. I am a medical student. The difference is that I do not have a degree, don't know what I'm talking about, and haven't had my sense of humor beaten out of me with a stick made of being on call. For more info, see my first post (If I were savvy, I'd link to it. But I'm not. I'm not savvy.)
