Intern problems: watching Survivor, and the only thought running through your mind as contestants gobble up reward challenge meals after days of not eating well = refeeding syndrome. All I want to do is check the contestants Mg/PO4/K lab values, replete, and slowly initiate intakes.. 

Yes, I’m one of the few people who still watches Survivor. 

No, I haven’t watched all 27 seasons, I’m just getting back into it as bonding time with the fam.. and the fact that it’s ridiculously addicting. 

Darn internship.. makes me analyzing nutrition and food intake over-excessively. Clinical also makes me think I have every single disease state I see.. I’m now a hypochondriac.. great. 

If you want to learn a bit about my life as a student dietitian and my experiences during internship, check out my other blog hereeee

What I’m grateful for: all the friends, family and colleagues who have been sending me “good luck” and encouragement messages for internship. Unlike my other Dietetics homies, I’m extremely stressed out and nervous to start.. maybe it’s the fear of failure, maybe it’s because I’m scared to look incompetent or that I lack knowledge. I don’t know what it is. 

I can say that I’m excited though — it’ll be a major learning curve, and a learning style I prefer, ie working hands on, applying theory rather than just memorizing information, and working as a team or with patients to learn all I need to know about being an RD. 

The next few days will involve last minute internship clothing shopping, a bit more studying, and finding ways to relax my mind with friends before I dive into my first day of internship at Royal Columbian Hospital on Monday. 

Oh universe.. please help me find a way to cope with this stress in a healthy way, asap!

Our final clinical case study would be one of the hardest we’ve had.. gotta love learning about dysphagia and stroke.
