In case you guys didn’t catch it...I fucking LOVE cannabis! It’s my favorite thing in this whole shitty world! Toke it up ladies and gentlemen! It was put on this planet to be used by humans for a plethora of medicinal remedies!

#2. New vocabulary
A number of new phrases and sayings are now a part of our everyday vocabulary. Above all, the name of the pandemic, of course, Covid-19, has become a new term. The World Health Organization (WHO) officially named the disease on February 11, 2020.
“In 2020, several new phrases and words were added to the general lexicon. As people were constantly exposed to words and phrases like ‘social distance’ or ‘stay 6-feet apart to flatten the curve’ to minimize the burden on the healthcare providers and the system.” SG Analytics.
Here are some words we use daily but may not understand.
SARS (Severe acute respiratory syndrome).
SARS-CoV-2 (Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). 
COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). 
Spread of disease. When a disease—and the virus that causes it—begins to spread, epidemiologists take notice, looking for the frequency, patterns, and causes associated with it. 
Epidemic. This refers to a sudden increase in the number of cases of a disease above what is typically expected in a particular area. 
Outbreak. This shares the same definition as epidemic, with one exception—an outbreak usually refers to a more limited geographic area.
Pandemic. An epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, impacting many people. 
Cluster. A collection of cases occurring in the same place at the same time. 
Incubation period. The time between when a virus infects a person and when he or she notices the disease’s symptoms.
Asymptomatic. When a patient is a carrier of an illness but does not show symptoms. 
Flattening the curve. Slowing the spread of the virus. 
Social distancing. Putting physical distance between yourself and other people. 
Self-isolation. You are to remain at home and not go to work or school. 
Self-monitoring. This means checking yourself for COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. 
Isolation. Involves keeping people with confirmed cases of a contagious disease separated from people who are not sick. 
Quarantine. Involves separating and restricting the movements of people exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick. 
Vaccine. A vaccine triggers the immune system to help it build immunity to a disease.

Hi.👋🏻 Any tips for revising/ or study or/ what to await on a rotation at the neurology department? Thanks I’m scared as shit😳...
Oh gosh I feel like you probably asked this a while ago and I'm just now getting to it. Also guessing you're UK-ish so take this with a grain of salt because I'm American and also because it's been over 4 years since my neuro rotation in med school.
I'd say the biggest first step is getting good at a neuro exam. Cranial nerves, strength, sensation, cerebellar, reflexes, tone, and gait (ALWAYS walk the patient if you can). You get faster as you practice more. If a patient is unable or unwilling to cooperate with exam, be detailed in your observations. No reaction to noxious stimuli with no cough/corneal/gag reflexes tells a very different story from throwing things at walls and cursing at staff, even though neither patient is cooperative - the latter at least has fluent speech and you can comment on their coordination!
Neuro is big on localizing the lesion - central vs peripheral, and then where specifically. Good to study neuroanaromy because it flows directly into this.
To be honest I can't remember what books I used and doubt they'd be especially relevant to you anyway, but I'll post this im case any neuro folks want to chime in!

The research shows that if you meditate, the mind becomes still, and they can see the functionality and gray matter in the brain increase, the nervous system calm, the immune system improve and a reduction in stress.

I started off today pretty productively - with an early morning library sesh and then I had classes. I’m doing neuroanatomy rn and we had to brush up on the osteology of the skull to make sure we have a decent base to work with. Ahhh i feel like neuroanatomy will be really interesting to cover but also a paaain to fully understand and memorise.

When a body is in an alkaline state, it avoids disease, but when it’s in an acidic state - where you’re eating a lot of processed foods, meat, dairy - you’re not going to have that hydration in your body, and you’re not going to have that ability to fight off disease, and it’s going to impact your immune system and the inflammation in your body too.

HeartMath found that five minutes of feeling love and care can strengthen your immune system for up to six hours, whereas five minutes of feeling angry can weaken and suppress the immune system for six hours. Love releases very powerful, beneficial chemicals into the body.

Hope, purpose and determination are not merely mental states. They have electrochemical connections that affect the immune system.

My flash-card collection! These are from my 5 years at Med school ✨ I am currently a bit stressed as this last semester of exams is very hectic and non-stop. But oh well... as always I will try my best and look forward to my last year 🤗
Hope you all are having a lovely day/afternoon/night ❤️

Why do drugs when you could start an organ trafficking ring operating out of a private clinic in Rawalpindi, Pakistan?
