That's right, another test. Just one week from tomorrow, I will sit for my boards. And I mean SIT -- for 8 hours, in front of a computer screen, answering any and every question about...medicine. All of it. Oh, the joy. I want to poke my eye out with my pencil.
When will the madness end?!?? When will They realize that I can look up any answer that I don't know on my palm pilot in 15 seconds. I don't need to memorize charts or medication side effects. I CAN LOOK THEM UP when I need them. Gone are the days of 3000 page Physician Desk Reference books on medications. Gone.
Regardless, They have got me by the throat and they are squeezing a board exam out of me. Let's all have a moment of silence and say a quick prayer that I'll come out victorious. If not, well, I was the top seller of Girl Scout cookies when I was 11. [Well, not really, but I was close.]
