Day 295: Items Purchased:0, Temptation Radar
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
This is the story of an emergency situation that occurred today in the life of one young-ish lady, who’d apparently over-indulged in her work.
Lifestyle: non smoker, non-alcohol, diet and exercise program 1 year, generally optimistic
Hypertension, Chronic Agitation, ADHD
Addictions: Facebook, recovering shopaholic
Medications: Coffee, Candy corn (recently discontinued)
Symptoms: disorientation, dazed and confused
Patient presented to blogosphere this evening clearly dazed, confused, unresponsive. Upon administration of emergency espresso shot, patient began chanting series of abbreviations related to medical science: LDL, HDL, VLDL, IDL-C, and the Friedewald Formula: LDL-C=TC-HDL-C-VLDL-C.
After further analysis, we learned that the patient, had been severely inundated with a dangerously excessive amount of study content for an upcoming testing cycle. She had also been confined to an office conference line for 2 days straight, multiple hours at a time. We discovered that she had become well-versed in the area of managing Severe Hypertricglyceridemia, and lacked ability to shut her brain off, once we revived it.
Diagnosis: Acute Cerebral Scorch Syndrome
Treament Regimen: Re-fuel herb tea, melatonin, 2 Tylenol, a thoughtless blog post and a good night’s sleep.
