Laughter Is The Best Medicine

A few days ago I got an e-card from one awesome blogger!! This card made me laugh till I peed in my pants. And I really needed the laughter. It is the perfect cure.

One of my friends called me soon after I got the card. She told that she also didn’t match into a program. Together we discussed our options and by brainstorming I found some solutions. One, I am not going to give up on all the hard work I’ve done in the last few years. I’m going to try again, but I’m going to expand my applications to include other specialties. My friend reminded me that when I first started medical school I loved psychiatry and pediatrics. She suggested looking for a program that combined the two. She also reminded me that one of my highest scores for exams came in obstetrics and said she remembered that I did very well during that rotation.

Most of all she reminded me that I need to remember that the hard part is over, that I’ve graduated. She reminded me that I passed all of the USMLE exams (and that not many people can boast that triumph). And she reminded me that “poor little me” was not the only one left behind when other programs filled (she also was still licking her wounds)…and that sooner or later I’ll be bitching that a program is working me too hard.

Thank you all for bearing with me these past couple weeks. I have appreciated the comments and being able to chat it out with many of my friends. Have a good weekend and once again a HUGE thank you.

P.S. At the very end of our conversation my friend broke out in song singing “Morning After” from the Poseidon Adventure…a movie we watched cause we were up at like 3 a.m. one night. She remembered that as a really good time in our road of friendship. This pushed my laughter way over the edge.

    It sounds as if you have two great friends who *did* know the best medicine to prescribe for your woes. I am happy to hear not only of your laughter, but of your determination to re-focus and re-try.

    I am reminded of a little plaque that a good friend gave me at the point of a career crisis (of mine) – “God never closes a door without opening a window.”

    Best wishes for much more laughter!

    indeed; laughter at one’s self and the situation is very liberating.
    keep remembering that where you next work is only a stepping stone and no way resembles where you will end up.
    I started in internal medicine head to cardiology only to get into psychiatry in the end; it seems like everyone switched in my class.

    This is how the gods do business:::::They use temptation and deception to compel people to chase something that has already been decided. It’s children who go to “beaven”. OLd people have to come back. The gods will use their power to contradict this, corrupting people and compelling them to incurr evil::::They used the Italians to ruin life in the 20th century, cost you the Final Prophet and the result will be death as you wait for the Italian Second Coming of Christ to save you.
    This is the god’s positioning and it IS going to be enforced. Never forget::::The gods have always offered “protection” to those genuinely religious. It is something that was always respected, even in the wicked 20th century.

    As people begin to age the gods employ corrupting tactics. They ultimately begin to look down on the children and the wisdom they recently understood:::
    They voluntarily turn their back on their opportunity to ascend and instead embrace evil.
    It’s not old people who go to heaven. Old people must come back because of the mistakes they’ve made throughout their lives. Children are the ones who have the opportunity to ascend.

    Children are discounted by adults in society. The gods corrupt people as they age, use trust-building tactics and soon adults view the children as ignorant, yet to understand the god’s system, and subsequently look down on the children. This is one of the most bitter, painful ironies the gods employ, for people consciously turn their back on and lose their opportunity to ascend::::
    Religions teach that old people to go to heaven when they die. They don’t. Old people are reincarnated. It’s the children who go to heaven, those who have a chance at immortality.
    The wisdom the gods impart to children, either through their innocence/purity or religious-based educational pursuits are the gods sharing the truth with their most favored people::::It’s the children whom the gods teach the right way for it is the children who have a chance. For example, they teach children to have faith, for understanding the god’s geographical clues hurts people by illustrating negative things, opening the door for the god’s to employ deceptive tactics.
    Old people don’t go to heaven. Old people must come back because of the mistakes they’ve made throughout their lives. It’s the children who have the opportunity to go to “heaven”. They must behave apprioriately, think correctly and be genuinely god-fearing. Their innocence and lack of desensitization ensures they have a real opportunity to achieve this goal.

    This is charecteristic of the gods methodology::::The big prize gone early, deception compels people to chase something that has already been decided. They sent this clue with boss as well. It is also a clue supporting my claim RW&B’s german is in fact Christianity’s Anti-Christ. Logic also dictates, considering the definition.

    This individual was used to justify the repression of alternative technologies, and in the early/mid 20th century the elimination of productivity enhancing developments like Chicago’s underground railroad for merchandise delivery to retail outlets.
    There are other examples like this as well, notably the railroad on the lower span of the Bay Bridge.
    This forced transport via internal combustion vehicles instead.
    This is how the gods do business:::They get theirs right off the bat. The #1 industrailist, the #1 capitalist is the Anti-Christ, and he’s been “in charge” for 150 years.
    Of coruse this is all telepathic theater. He was just a clone host all along. All those industrialists were.
    Flanders is on the Simpsons as a clue.

    The confusion over this multi-dimentional positioning will serve as an effective tactic, eliminating many additional disfavored in the process, for positioning states the Apocalypse to be a continuation of WorldWarII’s Aryan superrace ideals, positioned as punishment for the 5th century invastion of the Roman Empire:::John’s Fourth Reich.
    This amounts only to “nested theater”:::::Levels of positioning enables the gods to scapegoat:::::RW&B merely is the tool the gods chose to execute the final scene of their scripted theater that is human history.

    Just as they would have had me chase boss so would they have wanted me to sign on to this theater, evil by definition, and chase this role of Anti-Christ. By doing so I would have incurred evil and would have been punished, painfully “losing” Anti-Christ in the process.
    Does that mean RW&B is not the Anti-Christ?? I suspect as they would have “offered” it to me so will there be a fake Anti-Christ for those in these generations to accept as well. But it is a clone host. This is ALL clone host theater, created not as a clue to me but instead designed to be preditory on the disfavored, designed to increase indecency and further the god’s goal of justification towards The End.
    We were all merely peasants centuries ago, struggling with our disfavor, but without the enormity of temptations, real and telepathic, which exist today.

    They have shared I was positioned to some disfavored as the Second Coming of Christ, explaining all the evil surrounding me and RW&B’s placement in the “eye of The Beast” was to positon the sabotage of my candidacy (Damien Omen, Big Army Men, etc).
    The Big Lie of course is that Christianity is evil. The reverse positioning nature of Planet Earth dictates that good is demonized, as we wintessed in World War II, while evil is put on a pedistal, as we see with the Italians.
    The truth? The gods used their tools to create this and the rest of the incidents surrounding this Situation to distract the people from my message, for I speak the truth:::Only you can save you. You have to be responsible for your own relationship with the gods.

    The gods are asexual. They have no sex organs nor rectums.
    When the gods take children these individuals have the opportunity to become “god-like”. Temptations are employed and, if sucessful, these are the individuals who make up the human race’s immortals.
    I believe there are opportunities that exist for females that do no exist for males. I don’t mean to paint with a broad brush but women’s “sexual peak” may represent the transistion to “sociological males” and their “fall from grace”. Considering today’s promiscuity I question whether this is currently applicable, and is yet anther 20th century-earlier phenominah.
    I believe Purgatory is real. I think it is a temporary destination, perhaps sparsely utilized until the Apocalypse, but this will be the destination for those who “ascend” during the event. As they’ve said this planet will too be disposed of one day and it is imperative people try to avoid that destination, for there may be no escaping its fate.

    Boss was “back-handed help” created to mislead the disfavored while sending a clue about “chasing” a benefit that is already gone. The Final Prophet is another example of the god’s “back-handed help”::::I speak the truth, try to help the disfavored but it allows the gods to wash their hands of culpability.
    The Final Prophet buys the gods off the hook. That you dscounted me as a result of their Italian positioning is of no consequence to them:::::The package has been delivered.
