Coffee with Ameena #18

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you how last week, I stuck my foot in my mouth (by saying something I shouldn't have) and it didn't taste good. I was seeing a patient who had a stroke, but was stable considering, and we were actually having a good conversation. I noticed her caretaker had… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #18

Coffee with Ameena #17

If we were having coffee, I'd sip on my cup of black coffee while looking at you with judging eyes for adding milk and sugar to your coffee, because, I mean, If the coffee isn't black is that coffee? I'd start the conversation by asking you this question: If a reputable university offers you 1… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #17

I just completed my three months rotation in pediatrics department, and, as a farewell gift, a little girl decided to pee on my "Friday wear" as I was rounding up.

Coffee with Ameena #16

If we were having coffee, I'd ask you how your night was and hope it was better than mine because that thing called "menstrual cramps" shortened my sleep at around 3:30am.

Coffee with Ameena #13

If we were having coffee, in the spirit of spilling my tea, I have two confessions which are both related to my sister, (yup, the same sister who once forgot the birthday gift I bought for her). One of the confessions, she is aware of, but the other, she is about to find out right… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #13
