    Today, a patient came in for evaluation for elbow pain. It wasn't too bad and only hurt when he did certain things. He found that tylenol was helpful.

    For a moment, I paused and contemplated the weirdness of the situation.

    Here, I had a guy with mild tennis elbow, when elsewhere, this is happening...

    But...I did my job.

    Life goes on.
    How many Sports games since the Hatian quake?
    How many movies attended?
    How many big dinners at restaurants?

    True...

    We all have to move on. But I guess it's good to have occasional moments like above to put everything into perspective and make you appreciate life and what we have.

    Haiti is bad. No question about it. Have you ever been on a mission trip? Try going to places in Africa, Asia or even Mexico to see how most of the world lives and you'll be 'contemplating the weirdness of the situation' daily.

    Did you give your patient a ball to squeeze?

    These days, you don't have to travel the world to see how people in those places live. You can witness it at home in most western countries. Just visit the neighbourhood where immigrants from Asia in particular settle and see how they drag the area down to the standards they were used to back home!
