A True Trainwreck:

ermedicine:

It’s been an exceptionally long time since I’ve shared one of my “vignettes” from the emergency department. Over the summer, I have had many exciting moments in the ED, but this is by far the most memorable.

One particularly busy night, we get a call from EMS that they’re…

Oh my god, this reminds me of a volunteer session I had last year in the ER of Scripps Mercy Chula Vista, CA. The whole ER was in an uproar.   The description of the events pulled such an emotional response from my memory.   The doctor tried to explain everything to me back then but besides the technical aspects, I appreciated the last paragraph the most.  You don’t get clear cut victories/losses in the ER.  Bravo!

Why Are Chinese Patients Violently Attacking Their Doctors?

This is a good insight into what will happen if the healthcare system fails to do its duty.

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

This warmed my heart. From knowing and teaching autistic children, this hits close to home.
