  7. Hey hey!

    I am so glad I found this channel because I am currently in my last year of school and am working towards getting into Medicine, particularly in the surgical field. Even these little clips that you filmed throughout the day gave me great insights as to what it might be like for me during my first couple of years working in a hospital. So I just wanted to say, I know how hard it must be to focus on many things at once but what you are doing is MOST DEFINITELY having a positive impact on people. Your jolly personality and professionsalism both combine to serve the best videos. Be very proud of yourself hahaha.

    Here is a story about a doctor I’d like to share:

    Last year, a couple of weeks that led to my exam period were really awful for me. I couldn’t sleep and had horrible migraines all the time. That was VERY frustrating for me because when I would get into bed, try to go to sleep and wouldn’t be able to, I felt as if I was wasting time that I could spent studying. Then I would just count the hours I wasted trying to go to sleep instead of studying during the time which made things much worse… I didn’t want the same thing to happen during exam period since it had already been happening for the previous 4 weeks so I decided to go to the clinic. I told the doctor exactly what I was feeling and she just calmed me down. In the nicest way. She said something along the lines of, “I know this time of the year can be very tough and yes you may not be able to get much sleep but I want you to know that. You. Are. Doing. Just. Fine” and she kinda repeated that multiple times in a very calming tone. It was lovely hearing that from someone since I was mostly just looking down on myself for maybe studying not as much as I could be but the truth was that studying was actually the only thing I was doing. She didn’t prescribe me any medication but just told me to drink a lot of water and have a good diet, etc.

    I guess I didn’t need to go to the clinic in that situation and instead maybe going to a therapist or just a friend would’ve been a better option but she was able to get rid that little ‘self-doubt’ I had in myself by just talking. I really thought something was wrong with me since my body felt horrible but sometimes words really can heal a person. I learnt that doctors have multiple ways of helping people. And so do you 🙂

  8. Loved this! Haha always coming out with enjoyable vids 🙂 Can't wait to see more of your journey and reaction vids! XD

  9. Love your videos! You should do another Greys Anatomy! Do the episode called Losing My Religion season 2 episode 27!!! Puhleaaaaseee 😀
