9119: it's sunny again today

Today I realised.

Being a medical student and a junior doctor can be worlds apart.

I'm not sure if I should be disgusted or bemused that I can stick my finger up any bum without the slightest hint of apprehension anymore.

And being able to tell a patient I'm going to do that with a totally straight face, like I stick my finger up bums everyday.

Wait, that's not right.


That said, I should probably be proud that my finely honed skill of finger-prodding correctly diagnosed an upper gastrointestinal bleed today.

Oh she was an absolutely lovely wee ol' lady as well!
