somewhat, yeah. idk, I have a very strong hatred for dentists. we got screwed over by my last one. was mostly the insurance we had, but they didn't make it any better. so no, not gonna go. would rather suffer any ill health effects than deal with a dentist.

that's true, a normal work schedule isn't conductive to real life. gonk

good plan. once you're out, avoid it like the plague. rofl

it actually doesn't hurt at all. and the swelling is apparently not even noticeable. I've had this happen more times than I'd like to remember, so yeah...never been a fan of Oragel. and I have to just let this run its course. no dental insurance.

hopefully that'll happen sooner than later. tooth pain is the worst!

you're welcome, and you've gotta come up with something! NYC seems fun though. well, depending on where and when. lol

that's great though. not all workplaces are total s**t, apparently. sweatdrop

keep in contact then? and stealbuy as much as you can while you still have the discount?

in this case, no. I've got a tooth that's about to go. so yeah, swelling and just starting to get that lovely thick, sticky saliva. gonk

at least that's something fun? Happy Early Birthday btw. 3nodding

it's alright, and you're welcome 3nodding

it was to a degree, but I'm also pretty weird about loss. it doesn't really affect me too strongly. something's wrong with me. x.x
yeah, I hope so too. she's really panicking over it though. gonk

and again, I hope that can happen for you. 3nodding

sounds like a plan then. good luck!

idk about my paternal grandmother, pretty sure she recovered just fine. my maternal grandmother had a stage 3 melanoma in her leg. they managed to remove it all, but now a lymph node on the opposite leg seems odd and they're doing a biopsy on it. gonk grandfathers had bile duct cancer and mesothelioma, respectively.

working in pediatrics would certainly help prevent that mindset from forming, one would think. or at the very least, keep one grounded with the human side of care.

I bet that balances out against the depressing side of it all, at least to a degree. probably the most rewarding specialty to go into.

that makes a lot of sense. especially since they can directly empathize. I've lost both my grandfathers to cancer and both my grandmothers have had it. so yeah, it really prepares you for the darker stuff and such.

people in that profession really do need to take a step back from time to time and put things back into perspective. it does seem so easy to get disconnected from what you're doing and experiencing. for a long-time medical professional, a bad prognosis is just another day, but to the people hearing it, it's disastrous. they're too desensitized to suffering and whatnot, and it really does scare me to see them think that way.

that's what I meant, sadly. OB/GYN stuff being rough because of it being unpleasant work, but pediatrics because it's just so sad and rough emotionally.
s**t like that really makes you lose faith in humanity. the kids are utterly innocent, yet they have to suffer because of the poor decisions, negligence, or downright shitty nature of their parents. and yeah, I can only imagine the stuff you'd have to deal with over time, especially specializing in pediatrics. I bet the burnout rate is really high.
you've really gotta be an emotional masochist to work oncology for any period of time. it's better than it used to be, but you're all but guaranteed that most patients won't have a happy ending. and then seeing them degrade, the families go through everything, ugh. that's unbearably sad.
my mother used to work in a nursing home, and she'd really be able to talk about how they get regarding dementia and the mental ravages of old age. though a lot of older people are just spiteful regardless of medical condition. sweatdrop
that's the thing that scares me most about the medical community. that disconnect regarding life and death. doesn't matter how many times you've seen someone die, it shouldn't make it any less meaningful or upsetting. sure, you have to deal with it and go on, but never treat it with a trivial mentality. gonk

lol

idk either. that seriously has to be the third worst specialty of all. second being pediatric medicine and worst being oncology. having to see little kids with serious illnesses or injuries all the time? that'd be heartbreaking. and then dealing with terminal cancer patients and their families on a regular basis...that's gotta be so draining.

even better if you've seen who the guy's there with (assuming he's like a boyfriend with his girlfriend or whatever) and have seen what she plans on buying. spray something identical to what she's gonna purchase, and if it's a surprise "gift" for later, he'll freak out when he sees it. in a bad way.

"you guys realize the stuff you're gonna have to see while in med school, right? and then, you realize that the majority of the patients you'll be seeing will be older women, women who just had children, and people who are there because there's something 'wrong,' right? just be a plastic surgeon. they make tons of money, are surrounded by hot people, and probably get WAY more action."

perfect. a pair of those massive waistline-up-around-the-bellybutton granny panties.
or, just spray something with a disinfectant. doesn't even have to be disinfectant, they won't know that.
