sounds great but...

this is the clinical impression i recieved from a physical therapist recently:

'Symptom centralization in unloaded cervical retraction with pt. overpressure with increased mechanical response, classification extension bks.'

i have absolutely no idea what that means.

there are problems with being an optimist...

when i got my mail today, i thought the nice thick envelope with my name hand written in cursive was a christmas card from a patient.  instead it was two forms they needed me to fill out.  ahh, well.  i'm sure the next one will be a christmas card.

data entry black hole

i told my staff today if i'm wearing the same outfit monday morning it means i never left.  fortunately there are plenty of christmas cookies in the break room.  i will not starve.

i love little old ladies

i suppose if your age is greater than your weight then 'the wind blew me over' becomes a plausible explanation for your fall.  i'm glad you landed on the grass.

my apologies

okay, that last post is depressing me, so here is something funny a patient said:

me, looking for possible strep exposure:  'have you been around any children lately?'

patient with sore throat:  'only if you count adults that act like children.'
