Scrub techs!! Some of my favorite people in the OR! . . They set the table up, and make sure to get all the instruments and sutures, etc for the surgeon. A “preference card” is the recipe for a case. It has all the instruments that the surgeon usually uses for that particular procedure - a good ST will have all that, plus the favorites that aren’t on the card. . . They watch the students like a hawk and keep them away from the sterile field. If you’re ever told that you’ve contaminated yourself or something else, don’t argue. Take your gown off and start over. . . If the surgeon is being difficult, that next instrument miiiiight get passed with a little extra force 😝 . . Pro tip: when scrubbing into a case, always get your own gown and gloves. Don’t be that student that walks in with wet hands and no gown ready, forcing the circulator to stop what she’s doing and get your things.

Did You Know ? Saliva from humans has yielded a natural painkiller up to six times more powerful than morphine, researchers say. The substance, dubbed opiorphin, may spawn a new generation of natural painkillers that relieve pain as well as morphine but without the addictive and psychological side effects of the traditional drug. . #allenkota .

October was Breast Cancer Awareness month… • …and while it is now November, I’ve finally gathered the courage to tell my story. • In January 2018, I noticed a painful lump in my left breast. I visited my primary with my concerns and she ordered an ultrasound. Shrugging it off as just menstrual cycle issues (because the pain only worsened during that time), I continued on with life as normal. • By August 2018, I had enough. I couldn’t wear a normal, wired bra and it hurt more often than usual. I finally made an appointment for the ultrasound. My (then) boyfriend accompanied me to the office, I was taken back by myself and the exam started. The tech finished imaging the left breast, left the room to notify the radiologist so she could look at it, and within a couple minutes had come back to perform images on the right side “for comparison”. After all was said & done, the radiologist came in. Keep in mind, I was by myself during this time. Kevin was still in the waiting room. • The radiologist told me that there was a tumor in my left breast causing the pain and discomfort I had felt for nearly 8 months. I broke down in tears in that moment trying to think through what she was telling me. I asked for Kevin to come back and we listened to the radiologist once more. She informed both of us that the images did not suggest cancer, but rather a fibroadenoma which was common in young women (I was 22 at the time). • I met with a surgeon the Monday before Labor Day - also the week before I started my final semester of nursing school. We talked about options - either a needle biopsy or surgery to completely remove it and alleviate my discomfort. It was causing me enough issues as it was, so I decided the surgery route. Three days later, the 3/4 inch fibroadenoma was surgically removed and sent to the lab for biopsy. • 👇🏻Continued in the comments 👇🏻 Please follow me: [email protected]_Nurse_of_heart_
Tonight I talked about being an IMG. I talked about lupus I talked about failure. I talked about how they all led me to where I am today ——— The road isn’t easy, it’s barely pretty, and it’s constantly evolving and showing you places where you’re meant to go... when you don’t expect it.... ——— A few years ago I was ashamed to say I was an international medical graduate. I was ashamed to say my home country didn’t “want” me. Scared to say I had a chronic illness during interviews. I was scared to say I failed exams during medical school, I was even afraid to say I had matched in Flint, Michigan —— Today I am not ashamed, I am PROUD. So proud in fact that I said it all with @drninalum this evening on an upcoming PODCAST coming out in 2020✨✨ ——— So fellow, #imgdoctors - keep fighting through adversity. Keep putting up the good fight. You fight the stigma. You are WORTHY. You are the FUTURE🙌🏽

The US Government released a statement on the fertility rate in the United States falling in 2018 for the fourth straight year. ⠀ ⠀ There is a steep decline in births that began in 2008 with the Great Recession. ⠀ ⠀ Why is the population declining? ⠀ ⠀ Likely the reason is multifactorial. But we should acknowledge two big contributors. ⠀ ⠀ First, we are doing a fantastic job on contraception in the young population. Now more than ever we are putting in long-acting contraceptives in teens and young adults. The teenage pregnancy is at an all time low!⠀ ⠀ Second, we are becoming more and more infertile. In fact, one in eight women is infertile and one in every four female physicians is infertile. This may be because as we wait longer to start having a family after we start our careers, our eggs are aging too. ⠀ ⠀ Unfortunately, I am the “one in four” infertile physicians. But, I had a wonderful doctor and two miracle eggs that were up for the job. ⠀ ⠀ Now I have two beautiful babies. I look at them every day and am thankful. ⠀ ⠀ It wasn’t easy. I was worried it would never happen. I would deliver other women’s’ babies and gaze longingly at the loving family. ⠀ ⠀ I gave myself multiple shots in my abdominal fat, had multiple exams, procedures too many to count, and held my breath until the second trimester. ⠀ ⠀ I share this private matter because many of you are faced with the same struggle I was. I want you to know, you are not alone. ⠀ ⠀ Visualize your dreams. That is the start of them coming true. ⠀ #infertility #family #dreams #baby #babyboy #babygirl #seeyourdoctor #pregnancy #dreamscometrue #medicalstudent #doctormom #medstudent #medstudentlifestyle #endocrinedisruptors #eggretrieval #goodchoices #drmeadowgood #womeninmedicine #womenshealthcare #womenssexualhealthmatters #fertilityjourney #fertilitydiet

ɪ ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ ᴅʀᴇᴀᴍᴇᴅ ᴀʙᴏᴜᴛ sᴜᴄᴄᴇss, ɪ ᴡᴏʀᴋᴇᴅ fᴏʀ ɪᴛ 💭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast forward 2 months, I studied countless hours for Community Health and Advanced Med-Surg. I completed my 3-week, 100+ hour preceptorship. I wore my university scrubs for the very last time. I passed 3/3 final exams. I am DONE WITH NURSING SCHOOL! T-minus 8 days until I’m walking across the stage for my BSN 🎓🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My absence from social media persisted longer than I thought it would. I would pop back in feeling like I had to post out of necessity. I never knew what to say and didn’t really enjoy it anymore. I lived and breathed SCHOOL 🗣 and I barely was able to function for anything else. I spent a lot of time being very stressed and sad. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But as I’m wrapping up this chapter, a new beginning is about to unfold. I’m optimistic that I’ll be back more as I find out what it means to have a life outside of school. I’ll try to share more, soon.

Hydration. Your body is composed of about 60% water, so it’s important for your health and well-being to stay hydrated. Many of our bodily functions rely on water such as digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients and maintenance of bodily temperature. Aim for about 64 ounces (2 liters) of water every day - and even more when exercising. For more flavor and extra health benefits, try adding fruits like water melon, cucumber, apple, pear, strawberry/berries or pineapple - one of my favorites. Cheers! www.harmonyhealthchicago.com
Absolutely ! fall 2020 . don’t know which college yet , will start looking after the holidays . i honestly wanted to go back Spring 2020 (January) but you see .. the way my brain cells set up right now lmao . . i am going to focus on being a NURSE right now. new grad life is challenging! so much learning is happening everyday . i can’t fathom the thought of attending a lecture , writing papers ✍🏼 , or college in general lmao . shoutout to anyone who went straight for their BSN while being a fresh new nurse . . as for me , i owe this break to myself. i dedicated 3 years of my life to nursing school , and now i have the opportunity to dedicate this time off to MYSELF . going to spend the next couple of months finding myself, and doing what I love. . has anyone else taken a break from school? or tell me about how far you have left , and what are your plans ? let’s chat sissy 🤍
‼️ STORM ALERT! 🌪😳 can’t wait to trade this tetra device in for my guy tomorrow - he’s definitely a much more fun bed partner! 😉 • i’m on call tonight, which wouldn’t be anything to write home about except tonight’s a little different - the biggest storm iceland has seen in years is currently passing through and we’re essentially snowed in! ❄️⛔️ additionally: . 💨 all roads leading to and from the capital city were closed off tonight, including the road between akranes (where my hospital is located) and the city. . 💨 the power has been off in many parts of iceland throughout today and the hospital was prepared for a possible blackout as well. it’s almost 3AM right now and so far the lights have flickered viciously but the power has stayed on. let’s hope it stays that way through the night! 😬 . 💨 phones were expected to malfunction because of connectivity issues as well as heavy use of the phone system due to rescue workers and ambulances being out and about. we therefore got walkie-talkie/tetra devices for me and the two nurses who are on the nightshift with me, to be able to communicate with each other and police/rescue workers in case the phone system goes down. • as for myself, i’ve had worse shifts so far. people are clearly staying safe inside for the most part so the ER has been calm, which means i get to bundle up in bed and relax! 🤗💝 i’ve always loved staying inside when the weather is raging outside and i’m definitely enjoying this to the max, all bundled up with my tetra device and the on-call phone with me in bed. 😂📟 hope y’all are safe wherever you are - praying for a good rest of the night for all of us! // #oncall #stormynight #ladydoesinternyear

🥩🥛Let’s talk Antibiotic-Free Meat & Milk - do you REALLY know what this means as a consumer? 📍All too often we express the disconnect between Congress and constituents - but I believe a stronger disconnect is consumers and their food. 💡 Did You Know? Calves can be prone to bronchopneumonia (a bacterial respiratory infection), that can be quite painful, suffocating & often lead to death if not treated appropriately. ✔️ One of those appropriate treatment components for a bacterial infection are antibiotics, as with humans! In addition to proper shelter, ventilation, quality feed, fluids, and clean water 💦 👉🏼Denying them (or anyone!) basic medical treatment is inhumane, right? An aspect many don’t think about when they choose “Antibiotic Free”. Exercising judicious use of Antimicrobials is crucial - which we can, and are, as a society accomplishing steadily (there’s always room for improvement). Knowing this & the “withdrawal period” which is the time at which the treatment is given, to when the animal is allowed to enter the food chain to prevent any antibiotic residue in your food - which producers and veterinarians are by BY LAW required to adhere to. ☝🏼So next time you see or want to choose “Antibiotic-free meat/dairy”, I urge you to remember that this comes at a cost -and that’s the animal’s health & wellbeing.

ATTN: WOMEN⠀ ⠀ #pinnacleconference was amazing.⠀ Here are my takeaways that I think are important for ALL women to hear:⠀ ⠀ 𝗪𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠⠀ (often stronger than we think)⠀ You’ve heard me say this before – it’s one of the reasons I went in ObGyn. Women simply rock. BUT we underestimate ourselves. This needs to stop. We are capable of anything and everything and we need to remember that.⠀ ⠀ 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭 𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫⠀ When women empower women, we can do anything. We will rule the world.⠀ ⠀ 𝐁𝐞 𝐯𝐮𝐥𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞⠀ Take that risk. Put yourself out there because you never know what you may find. And as @nataliecrawfordmd and @lemoinehealthlaw said, “You will get 0% of what you don’t ask for.”⠀ ⠀ 𝐄𝐯𝐨𝐥𝐯𝐞⠀ Medicine is evolving and so should we. The face of medicine is changing and it is US NOW. Like @atxobgyn reminded us all “Don’t be Sears.” Doctors who are insisting on practicing the same way they always have will die with Sears. Evolve, innovate, and adapt.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 𝐈𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧’𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐛𝐞, 𝐤𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠, 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞⠀ I’m lucky to have several #girltribes in my life. The least expected of which came from right here. I have been to many professional conferences in my time, but I have never felt so comfortable, so at home, so connected to every single person in the room as I did this weekend. YOU are my people. My only regret is that I didn’t have a chance to talk with every single woman there. And if I didn’t get a chance to talk with you, I promise I wanted to. Let’s keep our community open, supportive, and thriving. DM me anytime. I want to hear from you. Your seat at the table is here. Take it.⠀ ⠀ HUGE thank you to the women who brought us all together to teach us our individual and collective power. @dr.pamelamehta @drrupawong @nataliecrawfordmd @mamadoctorjones are the most genuinely empowering women. No facades allowed; they are real real⠀ ⠀ ⠀ What other pearls did you go home with??⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pinnaclepearls #womenempoweringwomen #daringgreatly #womeninmedicine #girltribe #supportwomen #bossbabes #wearfigs #strongwomen #doctormoms #worklifebalance

Platelet Rich Plasma for hair growth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❓Does it work? I know, sounds strange that injecting your own platelets would make hair grow, but it actually does! We have seen increased numbers of hairs and thickness of the hairs. No treatment is 100% and it won’t make you look 20 again, but we see nice improvements!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
FULL TIME JOB, FULL TIME STUDENT • • Grad school isn’t easy. And neither is a full time job. So how in the world do I achieve both?? • • Balance. Which admittedly I have to work very, very hard at. After I come home from my job, I begin my studies - streaming lectures, assignments, quizzes, ect. Some week days I don’t work as hard on school, and that’s ok - I just make it up during the weekend. Other days, I might only get an hour or two of sleep (like midterms/finals week). But doing both full time comes with its challenges- I often miss out on social events, weekend vacations, ect. The one thing that keeps me going is that this is temporary, not forever - and it’ll be worth it! • • Some of my tips if you’re considering a similar situation: -find a job that will be flexible -have a job that relates to your field of study (reinforces what you learn in school-> less study time) -stay organized & keep all your work and school deadlines/events in the same place (I personally use Outlook for this and it works great!) -take time for yourself! It’s ok to have a rest day • • Remember, it’s hard, but not impossible! 💪🏼 • Have any of you been in similar situations? How did you handle it? #womeninscience #womeninstem #womeninmedicine #gradschool #gradstudent #finalsweek #medicalschool #fulltimestudent #motivation #futuredoctor #molecularbiology
Hi guys! I recently gave you a taste of a life changing event and wanted to tell you more. I had the privilege of going across the world last month, for the second time this year, to provide essential dental care to refugees and orphans living in unimaginable conditions where dental care is completely absent. I never really thought when I went to hygiene school that I’d be doing anything outside of working in an office grinding 9-5. While that may be fulfilling for some, I felt like there was something missing. I knew I needed to make a bigger impact on others and myself. That desire for more is what got me involved in marketing early on and working to help feed my creative outlet while developing and growing dental brands. That was definitely a start to my journey, but getting involved in a dental mission was a way for me to not only push myself out of my comfort zone, but gave me the opportunity to give back to humanity 💜 .. TX: whether it be finding unique ways to apply your clinical skills, creating opportunities for self exploration, or carving out new goals, always be thinking of what else you can do to have an impact on yourself and others!
How do you do it? How do you eat so healthy all the time? Don't you miss certain foods? Don't you get bored? I can't tell you how often I get asked questions like this. But here's the thing. For me there is no other option. Eating this way got me my life back. I spent countless years being so sick with symptoms that no one could explain or give me answers to. I missed so many events, outings and opportunities being sick and and used to live in constant fear of when my symptoms would flare again. Switching to a real foods diet gave me my life back. I have experimented with pretty much every healing diet out there including vegan, AIP, SCD, GAPS, Whole30, low FODMAP, keto and paleo. After years of experimentation I have found that paleo with a few tweaks is what works best for me. Yes people judge me for the foods I eat. Yes I get asked a lot of questions. But from one of the hardest things I have had to go through has come some of the best things as well. I now truly understand that food is medicine and that healthy eating is central to healthy living. If it hadn't been for all those years of struggling I never would have come to learn the power of real food, and would never have started my blog. And I never would have found this community. I am so grateful for the opportunities that have come from being sick. And no, I honestly don't miss the foods I used to eat. And I especially don't miss what those foods did to my body. If people choose to judge me and my food choices that's ok. My food choices got me my health back and for that I will be forever grateful💕 . . . . . #foodismedicine #realfoodismedicine #foodheals #healingwithfood #healthyfoodisnotboring #healthyfoodlover #realfooder #healwithfood #healthstartsathome #healthystartsinthekitchen #healthstartswithfood #healthstartswithnutrition #chronicillnesswarrior #womeninmedicine #realfoodblogger #paleoblogger #paleoblog #paleorecipes #yycfoodie #healthyfoodie
WOOHOO I SAID YES TO THE DRESS! I knew that searching for a wedding gown would be one of the most meaningful parts of the journey to the big day. It was even more special to share every moment, delight, and discovery with my mom, sisters, and cousin-- in person, on FaceTime, across four visits, and throughout hundreds of texts. Finally, thanks to the artists at @galialahav, I’m getting married in the dress of my DREAMS!

"How do you do it all?" ☞ Like anyone else I have busy and not-so-busy weeks in my life. I'm very productive, organized + a big planner/list-maker (skills I learned in undergrad + as a PA student!) . Although I juggle many hats, activities, and different endeavours - I try to focus on what I can do to make the most of the day: . ☞ if I can accomplish 1 or 2 things a day, and then do 1 thing for self-care, I consider that a triumphant day (that was advice from my cousin who is now a Pharmacist and dad!) . ☞ Being present. I sometimes get caught up on the next thing to work on, or next goal to accomplish. What's important to me is focusing on the moment, or the person/task that is in front of me . ☞ I put boundaries on work and social media time. Screens turn off at a certain time and I focus on my partner.

What I want to do vs. what I need to do ⠀ ⠀ What I WANT to do on this cold, rainy Seattle night is curl up in bed with hot cocoa spiked with some peppermint schnapps, turn on @disneyplus, and watch a movie under the covers. ⠀ ⠀ What I need to do is practice my presentation and catch up on studying for my exams next week 📖⠀ ⠀ Discipline. It’s hard sometimes. What’s stopping me from doing what I want to do? Nothing really. I could easily curl up in my room with some Star Wars and be the happiest lady alive 🥰⠀ ⠀ Instead, I dragged my ass down to the lobby of the hotel (becuase I have no self-control), sat my butt in a chair, and got to work 💪🏼 (It wasn’t easy)⠀ ⠀ My time will come. All of our time will come when we CAN just curl up when we want to. But for now, my dreams are bigger than a movie in bed. ⠀ ⠀ Friendly reminder to not forget your ultimate goal, dream on my friends ✨⠀ ⠀ #vetstudentlife #vetlife #vetmedworld #vet #veterinarian #veterinarymedicine #veterinaria #vetstudents #vettech #volunteer #studentdoctor #futuredoctor #futuredvm #likeforlike #dvm #vetmed #vetsofinstagram #womeninmedicine #girlsinscrubs #medstudent #studentdoctor #futuredoctor #lifeofavet #lifeofavetstudent #study #studylife #doctor #doctorlife #student⠀ ⠀
Throw 🔙 to when I was pregnant with my little peanut 😍😍 When I entered medicine I never planned on having children until after residency but hey life happens and here I am in the middle of interview season, 5 months from graduation, and raising a 3.5 month old! Is it easy? Absolutely not! Is it worth it? Absolutely and I wouldn't change it for the world! . . . . . . . . . . #womeninmedicine #physicianmom #messymotherhood #worklifebalance #mominmedicine #primarycare #medicalstudent #mamasinmedicine #familymedicine #familymedicineresidency
From Dr. Nichole Barker: "But, here’s the thing...there are so many more influencers out there who don’t even know they are, little girls dreaming of a career in medicine, women sitting reading my post or not even on social media trying to find support to make her dreams come true. We have more work to do supporting one another and lifting one another up. Small dreams, big dreams...YOU can and please bring more with you on the ride. YOU are limitless."⠀ ..⠀ Repost from @fertilityspecialist_dr.barker - Personal development, education, networking, and fun. 💕⠀ ..⠀ #pinnacleconference was such a blast. All my goals met 👍⠀ ..⠀ This was such an impressively accomplished group of women doctors from all over the country. I was honored to be in their presence...every single one.⠀ ⠀ Thank you to the amazing founders:⠀ @drrupawong ⠀ @nataliecrawfordmd⠀ @dr.pamelamehta⠀ @mamadoctorjones⠀ Your vision to reality...what an accomplishment.⠀ ..⠀ #womeninmedicine #girlpower #womandoctors #womensupportingwomen #medicalstudent #residency⠀ ⠀ #seattlefertility #SeattleReproductiveMedicine ⠀
With finals in full swing, I start to get a little crazy with my study guides 📖 . Second year of vet school has been a lot of re-reviewing phys and learning lots of new pathologies. Physiology is my FAVE and drawing and writing things out is the best way for me to remember things! ✏️ . We all need to help each other and share information and I am here to provide as much help and support to my fellow students and veterinary professionals 💕 Sorry all my sources are not cited but I can tell ya that I used: ▪️Boron “Medical Physiology” ▪️Cunningham “Textbook of Veterinary Physiology” 4thed ▪️Duke’s “Physiology of Domestic Animals” 13thed 📚 . . . #study #vet #college #vetmed #veterinarian #veterinary #vetschool #veterinarymedicine #futureveterinarian #dogtor #doctor #womeninmedicine #studynotes #notes #physiology #medicine #medical
P R A C T I C A L S 👩🏻⚕️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ It’s a busy quarter for second years at ICO - on top of our 7 class schedule, we have two exams every week, we’re in clinic and/or eyewear AND have to practice for our upcoming practical over EVERY skill we have learned this far 😳 This includes: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • entrance testing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • retinoscopy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • refraction & binocular balance ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • vergence/phoria/accommodative testing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • slit lamp exam ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • BIO ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • 78/90 D ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • tonometry ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • gonioscopy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • blood pressure ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ In the midst of this overwhelming schedule, I look back and see how far my classmates and I have come in the past year and a half and know it wasn’t at all easy to get here 💪🏻 We have learned so much thus far and we’re about to prove it in a couple of weeks during our practical!

Hey folks! We have had an influx of new followers lately so we’re going to go ahead and re-introduce ourselves. First up is Dr. Meghan. • Dr. Meghan holds a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Functional Medicine. She is a humor enthusiast, a bone deep dog lover, and a fan of everything natural health. She also loves blueberries, snow, sunshine, and a yummy cup of tea (or coffee). • Some of the main concerns Dr. Meghan treats in clinic include mental wellness (doctoral research), autoimmunity (Master’s research), women’s health, and cosmetic concerns. With advanced training in traditional Chinese pulse diagnosis she still treats a lot of concerns that aren’t on that list! She is an avid believer in whole body wellness and beauty that is felt from the inside. • Dr. Meghan opened the doors to Balanced Thistle on May first of this year. She is slowly curating a clinic that isn’t afraid to tackle the concerns people don’t talk about in a way that makes in all cool and comfortable. For example, we’re bringing in lymphatic breast drainage because we’re not afraid to talk about boobs. And just wait until our next new service announcement. You won’t want to miss it. • The goal is to create an atmosphere that is supportive and empathetic while still offering services that are simultaneously evidence based yet rooted in ancient, tried-and-true theory and practice. We love both the time we spend one on one with our clients as well as out in our incredible northern Colorado community. Balanced Thistle is growing, and we’re so very grateful to everyone who’s hopped on board with us and has been enthusiastically trying each new service as it’s been added. We feel within our souls that 2020 at the Balanced Thistle is going to be pretty dang magical ☺️

Finished tucking everyone in after a busy week of call. Seemed like everyone had bilateral (both eyes) 👀 disease this last week. It was hectic, challenging, and I learned a lot. Reminded me of medical school and residency call. Hard to leave the little ones during long hours on the weekend, but I went to bed each night feeling like I did some good.

Beyond Birth Control Day 2: Endometriosis is a significant health problem for girls and women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Affecting up to 10% of women, this condition is caused by the abnormal growth of cells from the inside of the uterus in the pelvis and abdomen. How and why these cells get outside the uterus and attach to other surfaces- we don’t fully understand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What we do know is that once these cells are outside of the uterus, they act differently. They cause excess inflammation, scarring and may induce local nerve growth. Yes that means they implant in tissues uninvited, release a bunch of angry chemicals that cause pain and swelling and on top of it, make the tissue around them hypersensitive to pain. This leads to pain with periods, pain with sex, bowel and bladder dysfunction and/or infertility. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While there is no single best treatment option or cure, the birth control pill, patch, shot and progestin IUD are all first line options for managing pain caused by endometriosis in patients who are not currently trying to get pregnant.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These methods have all been studied and are recommended by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology as evidence based practice to improve pain. As a gynecologist that specializes in adolescent care, I work with patients to individualize their treatment plans to try to obtain pain relief, suppress progression of disease and protect future fertility. Without access to these medications, our patients would absolutely suffer more. DM w any Endo questions or comments!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸@duvet_days

A mid-week FIG me-up... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is a FIG me-up? It's the boost in the middle of the week you get when your new @wearfigs order arrives. (It’s not a real thing.. I just made it up. 😂) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You guys, I'm not getting paid to rave about these scrubs. I just seriously started wearing them because I saw so many of my colleagues going on and on about them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My chief bought some and was showing them off at a recent staff meeting. He was bragging on the flattering slim cut. 🦵 My colleague @hayleyhappiness13 was rocking the #CeilBlue scrubs a few weeks back and she was looking extra comfy and extra professional. 👖 My friends and influencers on instagram in the medical community kept raving about them. 😎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now there's me... I got this Mandarin Navy Blue Scrub Top & these Navy Blue Skinny Scrub Pants - in a TALL size! What? Tall? Yes! Tall! Add this #wearfigs Light Khaki SuperSoft Longsleeve Underscrub for comfort and warmth & these @Toms sparkly sneaks for an assembled look. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who said scrubs can't be trendy and fashionable? If you did, you haven't tried FIGS yet. Try them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s giving you a mid-week pick me up today? #confidence #confidencecoach #confidenceiscontagious #confidenceiskey #complimentsomeone #complimentyourself #complimentyourself #complientothers #confidencecomesfromwithin #fashionablemom #fashionablefinds #therxforsuccess #workingmoms #momsinmedicine #womeninmedicine #workingmom #medicalmoms #healthcaremoms #livelifebalanced #workingmotherhood #momsinscrubs #momswhowearscrubs #momswhoworkhard #worklifesolutions #careermoms #fulfilledmomlife @mystlukes #momswhofashion
Still trying to believe that everything happens for a reason. Lol. 🙏🏼 The other night, after coming off my 6th shift in a week & excited to be off for 4 days ...I was walking Py & managed to trip, fall, twist my left ankle and skin the heck out of my right knee. Lol. 😭😫😑 I'm ok, as far as I know ...I didn't break anything. Haha. I hope y'all are having a better week than me. Just wanted to share my 'I need a nurse' moment. As always, I just picked myself up and hoped for the best.

𝐋𝐄𝐓’𝐒 𝐂𝐎𝐙𝐘 𝐔𝐏 by the fire and get to know each other a little better, shall we? Hello to all my new friends here on IG 👋🏽😁 I just wanted to take a minute to welcome you to my world and share a little about myself. I'm Dr. Riva Z. Robinson: functional medicine doctor, lifestyle coach, bodybuilding champion, best-selling author, proud cat mama, and lactose intolerant mac and cheese lover. I used to be super self-conscious about my middle name "Zuri." Wise-asses in school would ask me if it stood for "zebra" or "zucchini." Now, I LOVE my middle name, Zuri - it comes from the Swahili word "mzuri,” which means GOOD 🌸 BEAUTIFUL 🌸 FINE 🌸 AGREEABLE. 𝘑𝘰𝘬𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘰𝘯 𝘠𝘖𝘜, suckaaaaas! I hate the cold, but winter fashion is my fave.❄️ Unless of course you count bikinis. I would live in a bikini if I could. And that’s my ultimate life goal. #notevenkidding Other life goals: 🌹Helping women own every ounce of their worth and feel empowered by the strength and beauty of their bodies. 👩🏽⚕️Becoming Beyonce’s personal wellness physician. 🌔Going to the moon.

Working of finding my balance, for what must be the millionth time. Third year has been wonderful, but also difficult for me. There have been many bumps in the road. I’ve found rotations lonely with not a lot of opportunity to connect with my classmates and friends. The perpetual change in schedule and routine has proven challenging to me. The drive to study and perform my best sometimes competes with the desire to just lay down curled up in bed. Squeezing in time for self care, and even things like doctor appointments has been difficult. It has also been an incredibly powerful year, and I feel privileged to participate in patient care. I am lucky to learn from so many wonderful clinicians, and to have patients share their stories and experiences with me. I’ll continue to strive for balance, and for right now, 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 I feel strong, and I’m going to embrace it.
#day187 day187 a love so given. And I had thought that the moment of birth would be the moment I cry; That when the baby's head popped out and took his/her first breath of life But it was not. . It wasn't that I had become so jaded by the day-in and day-out of the rotation Or by the unwillingness to study after the long day Or by the fact that I broke my foot that night Running to grab the resident because patient was about to deliver. . I can go as much to say too, That she was not "a patient" in my eyes. She was a "mom-to-be" And now a "mother". . It was the moment when her nervousness dissipated. Her trembling became waves of strength It was the moment her quivering lips shut tight In order to hold in her breath In preparation for that push. . It was the moment in between every push when she smiled at me With glistering in her eyes Trusting me, us In taking care of her And her soon-to-be-born angel. . It was the moment when she no longer doubted herself The moment she made the decision to have this child With every inch of being she got. . It was the transformative moment when she believed in herself From being a woman To being a mother. . For that moment. I am so grateful. For the life that was born For the life she brought to the world To herself To her family And to everyone else in the room that night. . Mom is the greatest gift ever on earth. In this Holiday season. I wish for nothing more Than for all the happiness for all the mothers in this world. . You have been brave. You will be brave. And I think one day I will too. . . . . . . #lostinclerkship #rotation #medicine #obgyn #narratives #reflections #medicalstudent #medschool #moms #christmas #alliwishfor #births #pregancy #delivery #memorablemoments #transformative #gratitude #holidayseason #strength #womeninmedicine #womeninstems #iloveyou #lettertosanta #love #baby #roadtomd #medicalhumanities #writersofinstagram #postoftheday

I wasn’t feeling happy, but I sure told myself I was I was wasn’t feeling confident, but I sure told myself I was I wasn’t feeling strong, but I sure told myself I was . As the devil tried to knock me down on more than one occasion these last few days, I KNOW you too mommas are fighting your own battles! I am not alone and neither are you! I have made choices that have put me in a bad mood, my children are making choices that made me angry, the busy schedules can create overwhelm.... And instead of continuing to be pushed back and pulled down by an enemy who wants nothing more than to kill, steal and destroy our dreams, our voices, our marriages, our business... we have to stand tall, stand together and fight back!! . And on days like today when the devil is covering up all that seems good, I choose to torment him with recognizing it and proclaiming all that is GOOD! My wonderful husband, my sweet kids, my awesome job as a coach, mentor, my friends, my church family! I am so thankful for my early morning workouts! Its me and Jesus fighting my negative thoughts and preparing for battle as I know I will be fighting the devil off all day! I am STRONGER than anything we face! Momma, you are stronger too, but we have to believe this!!!!! How do we believe this, we keep showing up! Our actions are our proof of belief! Whether we want to or not! Keep fighting for what you KNOW is possible! . What is your favorite song that is helping you fight your battles right now?
