    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. iamjommyj 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    The times these types of things happened, the doc always handled the situation on their own and it definitely never seemed like it was their first rodeo. For patients that pressed the issue (mostly the intoxicated ones), I tended to act more like a silent physical barrier standing between patient and the doc as we exited the room.

    Back in the office, the docs tended to vent for a minute or two about the encounter, sometimes they'd thank me for listening and for the gentle reassurance, and they always shifted our focus right back to making sure the patients (including the offender) were treated and cared for.

    We all want to believe that this kind of behavior doesn't occur anymore in 2019 -- but it does. If I am honestly, I didn't really believe it happened either before I saw it myself.

    Thank you, /u/themockingju for the work that you do (despite the BS that you've had to deal with). I know it is not always easy but you have absolutely earned your profession and you deserve to be respected as human being (and not an object) while doing your job.

    ER medical scribe here.

    I am a large male with a shaven bald head standing over 6 feet tall. This kind of harassment from patients towards young female physicians that I have scribed for is real. I have seen it firsthand. Multiple times. It didn't even seem that it mattered that I was standing right there in the room.

    [–] Personal statement too personal? iamjommyj 5 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    Hey. I'd love to give some guidance on your PS. :) Shoot me a PM with the link.

    Unfortunately, this has been the spark for retaliative physical violence in the past.

    [–] Chat Backgrounds 2.0: Make Your Own iamjommyj 2 points ago in Telegram

    Cool feature but is it available on older iOS devices? I don't see the motion or blur option buttons on the wallpaper selection screen. I'm on an iPhone 6S running latest version of Telegram on iOS 12.1.3. I've tried it with Reduce Motion settings off too, restarted my phone, reinstalled Telegram.

    No dice.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    [–] The Library is more than Books iamjommyj 3 points ago in personalfinance

    As federal and state funding for public libraries in the US are declining, I imagine that a lot of these video games were either directly donated or purchased using donated funds.

    [–] How Important is College Reputation for Applications? iamjommyj 2 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    Basically, the only extra traction you might get from going to a more recognizable school is that it may increase the chance that an interviewer is familiar with the school or may have gone there themselves and may present an opportunity to connect and conversate. But as /u/DrRocuronium stated, a regionally accredited school is a regionally accredited school. As long as you met the course prerequisites and there is no reason to suspect that you earned your credits illegitimately somehow, you should be good.

    [–] WTF happened to Blake's? iamjommyj 1 points ago in Albuquerque

    Come on down for a visit, bud! The Spic is still good and The Hillcrest still has one of the best burgers I've ever had (The Billy Whopper).

    [–] A group of customers left me no tip tonight and told me why. iamjommyj 2 points ago in TalesFromYourServer

    No matter how brief the duration you felt the way you did, I apologize that you had to encounter those garbage human beings.

    Even for the Blakes here in my hometown of Las Vegas, NM I call my orders in and pick them up in 30 minutes or so.

    [–] Hang In There! iamjommyj 2 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    Hey! Congratulations on your acceptance into PA school! Make sure you study hard and very soon you'll be a PA!

    [–] Hang In There! iamjommyj 5 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago) in prephysicianassistant

    You can do it. We all have our first interview and we all come out the end of it feeling like there was something else we could have said or did. But don't let that psych you out.

    My advice to you: The cliche that you should just be yourself is so true. Not only will your authenticity be recognized but you will feel less anxious. Be candid with your responses and be conversational. Talk about your values. Allow yourself to be vulnerable at times.

    If they invited you for an interview, they want to get to know who you are. And if they don't like who you are, who you really are and what you stand for, then you probably don't want to go to their program anyway.

    Good luck!

    [–] My BF thinks my vagina is disgusting and won't touch me at all. Wtf do i do?? iamjommyj 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Had to log in just to upvote. I was scrolling down the comments hoping for exactly this update post. You honestly deserve way better than this and I am positive that you will find someone that will finally be able to spend time with and explore sexuality TOGETHER.

    I don't know you but I just came to tell you that I am proud of you.

    [–] My boyfriends opinion on abortion has taken a turn since we found out I was pregnant yesterday.. iamjommyj 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I say that you're absolutely correct in your assessment in that you both lack the maturity to raise a child (though it is blatant that he is lacking more in the maturity department than you are). If he is so quick to abandon you because of your decision to terminate, it is certain that he will find some other reason to abandon you and your kid later on down the road.

    Certainly, you don't want that.

    [–] What are some stereotypically feminine things you think it should be more acceptable for men to do? iamjommyj 3 points ago in AskReddit

    A couple of weeks ago I was getting ready for work and while sitting down on the couch to put on my shoes, I felt the most awful burning, tearing, intense pain that I've ever experienced in my life in my lower back. I have been told for years that my inflexibility in my back and hamstrings were going to catch up with me. They were right. My muscles spasmed mid-sit and I just tore them up.

    I'm now looking into a good yoga class or a routine that I can do on my own to prevent this from happening again.

    [–] GOP Lawmaker Jason Spencer Strips, Screams ‘N-Word’ on Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who Is America?’ iamjommyj 2 points ago in politics

    I haven't gotten the opportunity to watch the full episodes but I guess I really should now. I saw a clip from the episode with Bernie Sanders and noticed that he was cautious to follow along. Sanders is probably a poor example of a politician to "get" because he actually has well thought out political stances that actually make sense.

    [–] GOP Lawmaker Jason Spencer Strips, Screams ‘N-Word’ on Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who Is America?’ iamjommyj 2 points ago in politics

    While these segments definitely are hilariously revealing about the ridiculousness of some Republican politicians, I think that we should be cognizant that it probably wouldn't be all that difficult to get some politicians among the Democrats to say/do some ridiculous things too.

    Sure, it probably wouldn't be as overtly racist or as career-threatening, but it'd still probably be pretty cringe-worthy.

    [–] Does it matter which prerequisites you choose in "Program Materials?" iamjommyj 2 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    I attended a pre-application advisement workshop at a particular school and they advised what /u/Yale_PA suggested: Choose the prereqs class that gives you the best prereq GPA (provided the single class satisfies the credit hour requirement).
