A Rotten Egg

I wanted to bake some cookies, but that went down the drain. I broke the egg on the cookie mix - I know I should have done that on a separate bowl- and it was rotten. The smell was unbearable, the worst thing I ever smelled & I've been around alot of cadavers & some seriously nasty chemicals. Ewww I can still smell it on the tips of my fingers. =[
You can guarantee, I ain't baking or eating eggs in the near future.

It's the end of October the Breast cancer awareness months, so I must leave you with this message:

An Encounter With A Resident

We have been clerking -asking patients to give us history- for a couple of days now, but NO one wants to talk to us and even the one dude I talked to yesterday was ... Well, lets just say he doesn't count!

Today me & G went clerking in the female & male medical wards for half an hour & still no one wants to talk to us. I have reached a point where I'll start begging the patients "Pleaaaaaaaaaaase. I didn't take a decent history since Little K. PLEASE talk to me" and I'll add some tears to soften their hearts. I have even thought of storming in and scare the hell out of them with a " You were misdiagnosed. I'm the equivalent of Dr. House. I'm YOUR ONLY CHANCE OF SURVIVAL! If you don't talk to me NOW, you WILL die!".

Thank God G suggested that we go to the ER, since one of the doctors told us that the people there are bored from waiting for a doctor to see them. On our way we met Z and off we go.
We were the only students there. There weren't many patients that early in the morning. But thankfully we found one old man in some room and he delightedly agreed to talk to us. Hallelujah.
Z started talking to him and then out of no where this resident stormed into the room, closed the door, pulled the curtains shut, then said "Secure the patient's privacy. 5 marks lost" and then stood next to the patient and stared at us. I was like umm should we leave? Z said " 3n eznak" and was about to take off. He stopped her and then said introduce yourself. I was like to you or to the patient? We already did that. We were like the three stooges LOL. He said it again. So I said "I'm D, 4th year medical student". He looked at Z and she said "n7na sana rab3ah" with a hand gesture that implied this is too advance for me LOL. He looked at G and asked her to introduce herself. She did. Then Z again & finally she did LOL.

Then he asked Z about the history, since she was the one interviewing the patient. She said it & he said it was perfect. =]
Then it was dumb dumb me's part. He asked me to put my ID on my chest insted of attached to my lower pocket. I was very nervous and freaked so as I was trying to do so I dropped it and took for ever to put it on LOL. Then he asked me to describe the patient or something like that. Before that I must say he was speaking English and refused to answer us when we spoke Arabic and he looked Saudi. So I was very confused cuz he acted like he didn't understand what we are saying. Back to the describing, I didn't know what to describe exactly? So I told him " I don't get what you want from me" in a very shaky voice, that my friends later told me it was like I was speaking to an Indian or something LOL. He didn't fucking answer me & grabbed the patients urine bag. So I said "He has hematuria". Then he said "Baksh" to Z "your the daughter of surgeon A. Baksh. He was so aggressive with me". She said "NO, my dad is very nice o 6yeb and he's not a doctor". The idiot then said he was being scary cuz he thought she was his daughter. :/

Then he started asking about the causes of hematuria. He was like D what is lala? Z what is todolo? G what is bla? poor G said something wrong then when she said another thing which was right & in fact the patients diagnosis. He screamed at her saying something that I don't remember. You can say her confidence was shattered for now. Z said that maybe the urine is red cuz he's using some TB medication. He told her " lo jbtih tkony sha6rah". Now he speaks Arabic? Anyway I told him which drug "Rifampcin" and Z said "D sha6rah kman LOL".
Then he asked some questions that we didn't know its answers, so he told us to read about them and that he has memorized our faces & will ask about them next time he sees us. The 1st thing I did when I got home today, is open my medicine books & I read all about them. Ask me now! =]

Later today, we wanted to know his name. I'm sure I heard him introduce himself or how would we have known he's a resident in urology. He didn't have his ID on, and he had the audacity to question me about where I hanged mine? I guess cuz we were freaked out we didn't remember his name. Z was obsessing & fussing about her not wanting to see him ever again, then wanting to prove herself. Although mashallah he said she's an A type student. So stop fussing!

Oh and we saw him again later on. He was talking to someone. Z saw him and ran. I turned my face to look & he looked straight at me. Z then again obsessed about him seeing her running LOL. I told her "Yes he saw you and now he's telling his friend & laughing at you". :P

I'm very much happy about this encounter, besides the fact that I felt so DUMB when he asked me to describe the patient. It was an exam like atmosphere and it made me want to learn even more. Thank you doc whoever you are. =]

The Ugly Truth

Just watched The Ugly Truth and Ouch. I still have a smirk on my face. I loved it. it's my favourite kind of blind, funny, sexy and romantic.

And Eric Winter, the orthopedic surgeon that she wants to land, is such a hottie. Yummy.

The ugly truth is there aren't many cute doctors out there. It's just a TV myth. But it's not like women care about their looks. Once they hear the word doctor they go insane. LOL. The uglier truth is that doesn't apply to female doctors. :P

But I must set the record straight. I know many people think & say that female doctors & medical students are unattractive & sloppy. It's OK I fell for it too. But now I have learned that it's just a myth set by a jelous girl who didn't get into medical school. Seriously we are smoking hot!

We study in a different campus than the other girls. I have been there, wallah we are so much better looking and we put so much less make up. And once my friend told me she showed our pics to one of her friends & she was shocked of how beautiful we looked & didn't believe that we are medical students. The fact that we are not always out & about socializing with people doesn't mean we are ugly. You just forgot how we look. :P

Oh hold your pants. Don't get offended. I'm just defending the weaker species. My species.
The beautiful truth is we, all girls are gorgeous. =]

Chuck Bass Was Kissed By A DUDE!

Finally al 7mdullah last week is OVER! I had the history presentation which was frustrating. And the last 2 days I attended The 5th Scientific Meeting for Saudi General Surgery Society, plus my sessions in the hospital.

After I registered & paid for the conference, they told us if we don't attend 4 out of the 6 sessions we won't get an attendance certificate. WHAT THE HELL? I attended part of every session & I got my certificate yay. :P

I took this fuzzy picture while laughing cuz my friend was laughing at the girls heads & the sound of the flash. LOL m3 nfsha.
It's strange how perfect strangers sometimes care about you more than the fucking people that act as your friends. Thank you Martin you made my day & you are the sweetest person ever. <3
*spoiler alert*
Oh yeah your dying to know. Chuck was kissed by a guy in the 6the episode of GG. It was sweet & all Blair's fault. That will gurntee some spice in their life. The lovey dovey couple are getting boring. Oh & chucky lost some weight, he looks better. =]
If you don't want to spoile it further don't watch the video.

Injustice Pisses Me OFF!

We are supposed to give 3 history presentations. The 1st one is just practice, not graded. The 2nd 5 marks. The 3rd 15. So we have to make the MOST of the 1st. But obviously not all the doctors assigned to grade us are aware or even understand what we need & are graded based on from what we don't give a shit about. So freaking normally the picking of who's girl going to present in front of which doctor is random. And that is or actually was the case. Until our group leader whom I like & respect mush SCRWED UP!

She changed everything based on her own preferences or whichever reason she had. And she might not have known or maybe she did, but she ended up with the best doctor. She put me in the last group & in the freaking afternoon, both things which I hate. And she didn't even bother to tell me when & with whom until I freaking asked. I ended up with a shitty female resident. That honestly I don't think I benefited much from her. I'm still confused.

Don't get me wrong if my name was assigned to her, I wouldn't have mind much cuz I nor anyone in my level would have a say in this. But that wasn't the case. She put herself in a questioned position, I'm pissed & I have the freaking right to be so!

Fuck. The clock just stroke 12. I'm officially 21. And this day will pass like the rest of them, cuz I already had 2 parties to celebrate my 21th B-day. I can't be greedy and ask for a THIRD one on the real day or can I ? :p

The 1st was with my family on my birthday by Hijri calender. The 2nd was in April I guess. It was a surprise party thrown by my friends. And it was a total freaking SURPRISE! I mean 6 months before the real B-day LOL. What were they thinking?

They got me a diamond ring. Love you guys. =]

mmm I feel nothing. I don't want to be old. Please no I-wish-you-live-a-hundred-more-years wishes. I hate them!

On another notice, I just got this freaky message on Facebook, that made me die from laughing:

i swear my heart only belong 2 u , everybody should know that but perfect time will come , and we will be 2gether4ever :)

I have no idea who's the idiot who sent it bs mn jed LOOOOOOOOOOOL. Dream on sucker LOOOOOOOOOOOOL.

I Won :P

Day 1

*Foshia head scarf*

I went with my friends to Little K's room and she pulled the covers on her face & pretended to sleep. The second we left she jumped out of bed. I saw that!

Day 2
* Green head scarf*

I went with Z and little K was sitting & chit chatting with another patient. We asked her if she would pretty please give us her history. She refused & threw us out!

Day 3
* Green head scarf*

My friend M told me she promised to play Uno with Little K and asked me to come along.
I did & she allowed me to examine her. She told me that my palpitation is like a massage LOL. Hopefully now I learned the right way. Thank you Little K. =]

M played with her Uno & they had a bet if M lost she'll get her a bouquet of white & red flowers. M played to lose, but the cards didn't seem to agree with that plan. We had to cheat LOL. We told M the colors of K's cards. Yellow was jaundice, blue was cyanosis and red was redness, but next time it will be erythema. :P

Little K was going to win a couple of times but she didn't seem to want to end the game and I'm sorry but we have a lecture to attend in less than 5 minutes we HAVE TO GO! So I told M " She does not want the game to end". K looked at me & said " Btw I know what you guys are saying". She said it in Arabic but still I was shocked. I didn't think she understood English, cuz she looks so young, 8 at the most. Besides we were talking to each other in English and she didn't seem to understand. So I asked about her age and she was 17 0_0. A few seconds later she ended the game. I felt sooooooooo BAD!

I met L- the patient next to her. Such a sweet girl.

Day 4
* Foshia head scarf*

I went with my friend to take history from sweet L. Little K was watching us, then we started talking, then she brought the Uno & I played with her. I played to WIN! But I LOST BIG TIME! Then she suggested that if I win I can take her history 0_0.

I WON! And began to take her history. Let me tell you this Little K is a very sarcastic, funny, stubborn little girl. Taking history from her was a bit challenging. At first she was answering me in English, but when I asked her how old is she? she said seventy. I said "Oh y3ny you are sb3een or did you mean seventeen". :P She smiled & didn't answer. Then I asked her do you want me to ask you the questions in English? She said yes. I asked. She said I was speaking Chinese. I was so relieved. She does not know English.

I continued taking history from her & sometimes I got medical terms she heard the doctors use, some her real complains and some weird stuff LOL. I was asking her if she has any abdominal pain? She said no & I moved on to the next question. Then suddenly she had a huge grin on her face & told me she has "LIVER pain". I was like huh? You have LIVER pain? What do you mean you just said you have no abdominal pain? She said" I have liver pain. Right liver pain" and touched her liver! :/

Liver pain didn't make any sense in her condition and NO ONE say "I have LIVER PAIN" so I was doubtful but she did have gall bladder stones 3 years ago so I asked "Describe the pain?". She said "Those doctors are squeezing & hurting my liver. I want to kick them like a donkey". I was like LOOOOOOOOOL that's not real liver pain, they were just examining you. Move on. She kept on telling me I have joint pain, which again doesn't make any sense. Then I understood that some neurologist visited her last night & hit her with the hammer a few times. Poor girl LOL.

At one point M came & asked her if she got the flowers? She said yes and thanked her, but then she asked about the girl with the green head scarf? I was like what? That's me. She said "No that girl didn't know how to examine, she was massaging me". Again me! LOL. She refused to believe that the girl in the green scarf is the same girl she's talking to in the foshia head scarf. But that's OK, cuz I don't think she likes her much. :P

Foshia, green or blue I won and got her history. Yay me. :P
P.S: this story happened over the last 2 weeks. I just mentioned the days that mattered.
P.S.S: everyone wanted to take her history. That makes me special. =P

Oct 10, 2009


It's been a week since my last post. Not because there is nothing to talk about, cuz my life is pretty much hectic right now. It's just that I'm not sure I can talk about my patients. You know cuz of the doctor patient confidentiality, but then again I'm no doctor & I didn't take any oath. :/

I love my schedule it's like kindergarten. Most days I only have to attend 2 hours, but of course we stay longer. Geeks I know. :P
Anyway, I have been busy last week learning how to & taking history from patients. At first I was very nervous to do it solo, but once I did it, al 7mdullah it came natural to me. =]
This week we started the examination. I'm not so thrilled about it. I will practice on my friends cuz the patients are very sick to be touched and squeezed by immatures.

I'm just amazed how many people are stupid enough to sell their souls to the devil for money? And are OK with hurting innocent people? Even though what they are doing in Islam is out of question 7aram and kofr? The unfortunate thing is that they look & act respectable fooling most people, so you can't accuse them of what they really are, cuz you won't be believed. I hope they enjoy burning in hell.

4th Year- Day 1

Hellllllllllo clinical years. Hoa. I just came back from the hospital & guess what? I didn't take surgery nor medicine yaay. It was just orientation & some lame talk. I'm excited it seems like a good module. And cuz it's new we are all gonna PASS! =]

Anyway today my friend picked me up & we went to the uni's hospital. The second I met my friends it was like we never parted a day. We kissed and hugged then my friend M started screaming & showed me her copy of The Lost Symbol. Naturally I started screaming too. LOL We LOVE books. No it's not in Saudi till another month, she got it from the UAE.
Through the orientation we talked about books & laughed when people laughed then asked "What did he say?" then laughed some more LOL.

While the orientation the doctor told us to stop smiling LOL. Told the guys to be more respectful & don't dress like idiots just to be cool. :P
Here is one of his stories:

He saw a guy sitting & eating in a corridor and next to him was a girl and they were talking. The doc thought that the situation was a little bit "romantic" but thought it's better not to say so. So, he stared at the guy and the guy stared back. Then the guy said "fi shy?". The doc didn't want to say why are you sitting with this girl alone with romance filling the air? So he said "Didn't you know that it's not allowed to eat here?". The jerk looked the doc up side down and checked the whole place, then said "I don't see a don't-eat-here sign". The doc said "Oh so I should write it in every hall & room in the hospital?" The jerk responded by " SHOOF!". The doc got scared. You see he's a small cute man. The jerk continued " I know B " B is a big someone. The doc said " Well I know someone who is bigger". But he didn't tell him who cuz he didn't know if he's bigger or not LOL. And then said " Listen punk, take off cuz I have started to get pissed". Well, those weren't his exact words but I forgot. :P
Anywho the story is so much funnier when Dr. Al -Jiffery tells it. :/

Move on to a more stupider boring subject. So, I delayed getting a new lab coat till late last week. And when I went to order a new one they told me it'll take 10 day to be ready. I said no I don't want to wait that long so I bought an already made one. The problem is it's short above my knees. And I don't know if it's OK to wear it in the hospital, since it's Saudi & all. Plus I don't want the girls to think I'm a slut or anything cuz I always wear skinny pants. You would be surprised how judgmental those girls can be. And to tell yeah the truth I could give a shit if it's short but I don't want people to talk. Tell me what do you think?

Oct 2, 2009


Tomorrow I'm going back to school, or in my case hospital. I'm scared LOL. It feels like a new chapter of my life. Hopefully it will be a happy one with less drama. Whom am I kidding? This is medical school. With less traumatic annoying drama.
My day will start at 9 a.m. which is a HUGE improvement. I hope it's not just tomorrow. I have medicine & surgery. The rest of the schedule will be known tomorrow.
Last year 4th year student, took a WEEK orientation cuz it's the beginning of the clinical years. But apparently we are a bunch of extra ordinary geniuses and we don't need orientation. Good for us LOL.

I got my metal braces a few days ago and I absolutely hate it. It's sharper and irritating. But I look OK. Not as freaky as I thought I would look. =]
And I just realized that I'm so stupid & I should have waited till I get my hospital ID. Cuz now my mouth will look like a fish & my smile won't be cute.

I also finished the book I was reading Chances. It's really entertaining. I love it & can't wait to read the sequel. But it's not for everyone. This is one of its reviews "Should be called 'The Godfather Goes to Bed'" - Cable News Network

P.S: that's not why I liked it. :P
