Dr. Eaman Channels a Hair Band


My last day of work was October 16th. It was a sunny afternoon when I left the office for the last time. I said a lot of see-you-laters instead of good-byes because it was hard to imagine not seeing the people I’d been working with for the last 6 years.

On my way home, I was tearing up, thinking about the people I love there and how much I’ll miss them. Then, no kidding, this song by Whitesnake came on:

Here I go again on my own Going down the only road I've ever known Like a drifter I was born to walk alone And I've made up my mind I ain't wasting no more time…

Of course I had to sing along.

Since my exit from the fee-for-service industry of medicine, I’ve been sleeping a bit better. My wife said I’m smiling more. I’ve been cooking meals and spending most my day getting things ready for the practice.

It is sometimes lonely sitting in my office by myself. But I know that's a temporary problem as soon I will have patients, then eventually staff. Like Whitesnake said, I ain't wasting no more time - this is happening now! There's no going back, I've tasted freedom and it's sweeter than I imagined!

The clinic is nearly patient-ready. Next blog post I'll see if I can get a video to show that you can make 160 square feet work for a small medical practice.

TWO WEEKS UNTIL OPENING DAY!

Stay strong and Oodle on, fair followers!


Dr. Eaman's Web Search Tips

#1 

Chose websites that end in .gov or .edu first and .org second (MayoClinic.org is a good one). Websites like mine that end in .com are generally just purchased webspace, but an educational organization or governmental organization would likely have more trustworthy & honest information and not just some random person's opinion.

#2

Don't trust news sources for your health information. Check their sources. Oftentimes the media will blow a small irrelevant thing out of proportion to make a good story sell. Go to the original site.

#3

Feel free to crowd source but always remember: everyone is an expert in their own experience, not yours. So when Aunt Tilly says coconut oil cured her psoriasis take it with a little grain of salt.
