I haven’t felt like posting in a while (will get to that)...BUT I had to commemorate last nights #GNO
. My friend who shall not be named is holding a non alcoholic drink (I am featuring the profane and amazing #dylanlex
rings) and she should be considering she got physically stuck in an #uber
while 100% sober (#gucci
bag vs seatbelt). It was quite amusing, but like a good friend I picked up the spilled contents of her bag and laughed as she untangled herself.
Back tracking...I don’t like to post on Instagram if things aren’t “going well” in my universe. And they are not - I’m full of #anxiety
over the future and the uncertain, despite the fact that I know uncertainty is part of my gig.
The reason I am bothering to blab about this is I have noticed in #medicine
and even in the #startup
world, it is seen as taboo to admit your worried, upset, anxious. That was part of what was so hard for me in #neurosurgery
- everyone else always played it so cool. I thought why am I the only one that’s nervous, overtired, etc?
Of course we all have to be professional and can’t run the halls of the hospital, office, wherever lamenting our problems...BUT we can be #human
Last night I had drinks with 2 amazing women and we were all very open about our struggles. It was fun but also #chickensoupforthesoul
kind of shit.
So heading off my concerned #instafriends
, I am ok, just going through it...and I am not embarrassed to say it. My life isn’t #instaperfect
...and I don’t want anyone to think it is.
