hot water formentation for the heart..

People who know me will vouch that my favourite word is TRAUMA..
he he i can hear them snigger now, trauma is another word for stress in my vocabulary..like i am in trauma..bahut trauma ho raha hai, trauma mat de yaar... and i have traumatised my friends soo much over the years , that they are now trained in ATLS.that is :advanced trauma life support, for the un innitiated.
now that i am a training ophthalmologist and i have to attend these trauma calls , with these patients with red swollen eyes ... i have finaaly found the ultimate cure of trauma.
you see as ophthalmologists we write HWF QID.ie. how water formentation four times a day.
this helps in reducing the inflammation , the redness and pain, around the eyes. it helps in giving' warmth' and for every condition that requires the curing touch..HWF QID does just fine..
now not only is this an excellent ophthalmic cure but , hot water formentation is the answer to my kinda trauma too..
A warm bath..
a hot water feet soak, after a long day at work,
a glass of hot water to drink in this rainy weather,
or make that milk..anyways it's mostly water.
and now that we are at it a hot meal
a warm blanket..
It had been a tiring day, with innumerable gliches , in other words a traumatic day.. and i felt like there was no cure... but after a steam bath , i felt... like my heart had just got a hot water formentation... something like the chicken soup for the soul..
now i know why the health spas and the steam sauna's are such a rage...
and some times when things are getting traumatic a warm person , can be ur HWF..
infact as a friend of mine cheekily put it , a 'hot' person can be your HWF. wink

Birthday retrospect :Live a little before you settle down

Birthday Retrospect : 2018 , Live a little before you settle down. Before we married , my husband and I had a deal, not exactly a contractual agreement, but a sort of shared life motto so to say; of experiencing destinations and travelling widely, and working hard but enjoying the fruits of our labour , and to “LIVE “ a little before “SETTLING DOWN”. How many of you have heard these lines ‘to live a little before settling down’? I am guessing a lot of you, especially in India we tend to say this a lot. Sometimes we say it to our parents, sometimes to our friends. We don’t want to commit to a relationship – because we want to explore all the possibilities and the probabilities of finding true romance before the fire is doused by ‘settling down ‘ in marriage. We don’t want to commit to a profession or a job, because we want to dabble in a number of things before we finally ‘settle down ‘to the mundane-ness of a 9-5. Basically once you commit to something, the living part is lost. Livi…

7 things I wish I could tell my medical student self, 15 years ago

Two things happened this morning , one was the NEET (the national entrance exam of medicine) results in the Newspaper, and the second ,a discussion on our college whatsapp group that today was infact 15 years to the day we attended our first lecture as Medical students. The jubiliation of the students and parents of today as they embark on a new journey in medicine, and my own journey of the past 15 years ; the connection was like a resonance that my writing muse could not deny. What would I tell the medical student , that was me, from 15 years back? What secrets of the trade, what insider scoop could I share which would have made my journey a little less daunting, a little more fun, and may be even more satisfying? Here are my thoughts in no particular order, except as they enter my head.
1.You made it! : I think the first thing I would like my younger self to do is to celebrate , and not doubt myself. I had won. I was in. the door had closed (atleast to the medical college of choi…
