Ways Med School is Making Me Crazy

  • When I eat, I now think of the TAC cycle, ETC, and fatty acid synthesis. Fatty acid synthesis is bad news.
  • When I run, I think about oxygen, hypoxia, and all my muscles of respiration
  • When I type, I see my extensor carpis and extensor digitorums moving on the back of my hand.
  • I now check people to see if they have a palmaris longus, and wonder which people I know have a 3-lobed left lung
  • When I cook, I look for the nerves and blood supply in the chicken or meat
  • When I bowl, I complain that my interossei and lumbricals are sore
  • When I sleep...oh wait, I don't really sleep.
I'm sure this list will get longer!

I have no palmaris longus, finding that out actually made me kind of sad
