This made me smile today.

weather: sunny
outside: 14°C
mood: amused
music: Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti - Adeste Fideles

I was explaining some medical things to someone today (I was not giving medical advice, there's a difference) and at one point, she asked me, "Are you a doctor?".

Am I a doctor? No, but apparently, I could play one on TV and none would be the wiser =)

I've always been fascinated with medical/health information. A lot of doctors I've met have commented on how nice it is to have a patient who will do their homework, bring good questions to them and generally be responsible for my own ass =) And I guess with my geek background, I carry technical lingo well.

Of course, now I should preface everything I say with, "I'm not a doctor, so you need to talk to a doctor about this, but sometimes x can happen and that can cause y to happen because blahblahblah..."

It tells me that it couldn't contact the server. That and the fact that I hit refresh a couple of times and don't see my post, would mean to me that it didn't post. =P

Apparently, it still does. >={

I do the same thing for biology/medical stuff. people ask me a question and I go off on the whys and wherefores about whatever. Next question: "So, are you a Ph.D. student?" or "So you're a med student?"

um, no, I'm still trying to get through the hell that is undergrad. :)

And I ALWAYS do my homework on medical stuff. I wanna know exactly what the doctor means and how that will impact whatever. :) No medical surprises for me, thankyouverymuch.

Re:
Exactly. No one else can or is going to care about my health and wellbeing except me.
