  1. Benzodiazepines- How many of us are sick and tired of the battle of this class of medicines? Here is my rant- Alprazolam- The lipid solubility and short effect is the main problem with this drug. Although I do agree it has its place.

  2. Hope someone can help me get my personal statement off of the ground! I have a gripping but very personal topic that I want to use for my personal statement when I apply this spring.

Medical Consult for a 6 year-old who complains of "vaginal itching;" also reports from nursing staff of being hypersexual, masturbating so patient is placed in room by herself... No complaints of urinary symptoms, abdominal pain, constitutional symptoms, vaginal rash, etc. etc. Nurse in to chaperone for exam... Pt responds inappropriately. Hysterically laughing throughout exam, very very resistant.
  5. Hello, My name is Marco, I recently joined the forum. I am in the Air Force, I'm enlisted and I 'm stationed in Dyess AFB (Abilene) Texas. I've been going to school since I joined but I decided to change majors, I was going into business, I thought about it and I dont really like to deal with graphs and I'm not good at it. So I finally thought about it again and I rather be helping people, I'm a really nice person, I love to help people (which I don't think many do) my hand-writing is really bad, kinda like a Doctor :P Well before I start, I have 33 credits so far from schooling, plu
