I need some water and some therapy

Med school really tests out your basal instincts.  You will regularly find yourself in the midst of 7 hours into the day without eating, drinking, peeing, sitting, or sleeping for days on end.  Suddenly you get 5 minutes free to yourself and now you have a decision.  Or rather I should say, your basal reptilian brain stem has a decision.  I find it really interesting to stand there for a second and realize that peeing, yes, urination, that's what I want to do with my 5 minutes.  Or water, today water is what I really need most.  And some days I just curl up on the ground and rock back and forth until I've exhausted the tears.  Whatever it takes to get through the day.
