Important life lessons July 26, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — lesbonurse @ 7:19 pm

This week I learned (or was reminded of) some important life lessons from my patients:

  1. A drunken backflip into a kiddie pool WILL result in severe bodily harm.
  2. If your therapist looks frightened when you talk about your suicidal feelings, find a new therapist!
  3. If a horrible rash doesn’t respond to 2 weeks of twice-a-day antifungal cream, it’s not a fungus.
  4. A month of vaginal bleeding after 10 years of menopause IS something to worry about.
  5. There is such a thing as a testosterone-secreting tumor.  Which could possibly explain a very high testosterone level.
  6. If your back hurts, wear sensible shoes.  Platform heels do not count as “sensible.”
