I'm taking some rest after exam

1. It has been a long week for me. The pediatrics exam was so up class and making me head turn around and i almost' crash' yesterday.

2. My MCQ question was quite 'normal'. MEQ is a little tough. I don't know whether i can use the word tough or not? I hate that question. I almost 100% guarantee that the answer supposed to be Acute Glomerulonephritis but then it turn out to be SIADH. What is SIADH? i know it but it is not fair to ask that in a condition where i never saw one patient with that diagnosis in the ward.

3. As i told before, what we learn in medicine, is to learn the common thing because that is what we are facing in the future. Maybe i did not study so much. Don't give reason they say. But still, i thought that the diagnosis was AGN.

4. Essay questions are quite easy. Only pulmonary tuberculosis and Hemophilia. No big deal.

5. Then come to long case. I got thalassemia cases. It was so easy and i was so thankful to God for giving me that case in the exam. But i have to present it to two examiners who have history of failing a student. I was so scared and i almost give up in answering their questions but still i went through.

6. For the short case, i got again Thalassemia ( thanks God), and one child with swelling on both knee. I thought it was hemophilia because the child does not present with any pain or abnormal gait or something. But then it was Juvennile Idiophatic Athritis. Ar... i diagnosed it wrong again.

7. In conclusion, Pediatrics exam or any other exam in medicine was so unpredictable. maybe the life in medicine is unpredictable.

8. Now i'm in my one week holiday. I was so tired. I want to rest a lot this week. Maybe writing a couple letters or updating my blogs and spend time with family is a good thing to do after the exam.

9. Next time, i will try my best to get the true diagnosis. I was so shame of myself.

I'm walking away....
