Pretty terrified. I am going to be tested on a lot of meaningless numbers and an unknown test of performing a mock “treat” – meaning treatment and a plethora of Vital Signs and Signs and Symptoms.
I feel so unprepared it is almost paralyzing. I am really questioning my path! I wish we’d covered 75% of the course content this semester, so I would have truly become proficient- for example, I love posture and gait analysis. But I’m kinda terrible at memorizing numbers. And I a bad kid. We are supposed to calculate max/min VO2M and target rates and maximum heart rate yesterday, like perform the math when there is a website that I can do that in a matter of seconds. I don’t like math. I vote for it, BUT, it is a weakness of mine and I kinda adore plugging numbers to sites like this. Ah, my love of Promega and the like. I never much cared for conversions and you need to a fair amount of such in microbiology. It annoys me when I’m trying to grok with Ther-Ex, which is what I want to do, if I decide to stay in the program. I’m really questioning my path.
But Mid-Aug I am going to do a 2 week externship at Concentra. I sure hope that the experience will re-ignite the fire.
And I gotta get back to a regular and balanced yoga practice. Like, starting today.
Hope you have a great day
