The Reason...

Quite a few people are wondering when my next post is gonna come. Am completely flattered!! :D
The reason I've not been blogging for sometime is that my internship has started. I'm interning at J. J. hospital, one of the largest government hospitals in Bomb
ay, if not the largest (For those who don't know, I'm pursuing my Masters in clinical psychology)!
I was so damn nervous the first day, wasn't sure that I would be able to speak to the patients in Hindi. Am not too fluent in Hindi, I've to always pause and try to translate
English words into Hindi in my mind. But I surprised myself! Today I got my first client and I spoke pretty well in Hindi, even though I say so myself! Plus, I wasn't nervous at all! I did fumble a few times here and there, but recovered marvelously!
O.K., I'll stop with the self-flattery here!
:D
So anyway, I don't think I'll be able to be quite regular with blogging. And am not too happy about this, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. :(
I'll try and be as regular as possible in reading all my favourite blogs too. So until the next time, byeeeeeee!!

I once read about the difference between a clinical psychologist and a psychiatrist. I think one of them can prescribe medicine while the other cannot. Which one, I dont know.

Anyway, enjoy your work...and umm...get psycho?(Is that the cool thing to say?)

Hey Avik,

Thanks!

Hi TMTB,

Psychiatrists can prescribe medication n psychologists can't.

And I hope that I don't "get psycho" as you've put it!! :))
