Thank you for visiting my blog, either once or regularly. I hope you gain something entertaining or insightful for your time.
Thanks also to those of you who leave comments. Some bloggers are very good at responding to their comments; I find that I'm not so much. But I read and appreciate every one.
This blog was born out of inspiration from reading other medical bloggers, combined with a long time desire to be an author someday. My goal was to be witty, interesting, and a little clever. Oh, and to look like Angelina Jolie, but I'm gonna need Dr. Bates for that one.
On October 13th life changed for me.
My blog has since changed too. I really didn't know if it was something that I'd choose to continue, but I have found it to be amazingly therapeutic. There are things that I can write here that I'm unable to express to "real" friends due to the degree of vulnerability that it creates. There's also been an amazing amount of support, to a degree that dumbfounds me at times.
As my blog has shifted, I sense that my readership has shifted. I'm not really certain about that, as I'm not computer-literate enough to know anything about my readers other than the comments that are left. I really enjoy writing about medicine and work, but I'm off for two months to be with my son during his extended hospitalization. I suspect that once I'm back in the office I'll revisit the snot, boils, and vaginal discharge that makes my job so much fun.
If you're a doctor-blogger-reader, check back in again in a few months. I suspect I'll be back. For those that are following my experience on the other side of the doctor schtick, keep reading. I appreciate your support.
