Yay for OT school

Hi UTHSC MOT Class of 20XX…..Neal informs me there may be some linkage so I guess I should pretend like I've been updating this regularly lately. Oops.

This has been a busy week for me (compared to past, as my caseload is building up). Wednesday I had over 6 hours of treatment…….I have a lot of patients with strokes, post polio syndrome, car accidents, hand injuries or problems like carpal tunnel, trigger finger, etc, etc. 
Today I brought in some dice to work on wrist supination and ulnar/radial deviation…you know how men love dice. Haha. 
When I look back at the beginning of OT school I WAS SO OVERWHELMED. It's going to be hard for a while, but i promise y'all can do it the same way my class and below me and below them etc did it! Just hang in there, it's semi fun I promise. 🙂 And one day you'll be throwing balls around and getting paid for it and so it's all so worth it…..hmmm. There's probably better reasons than that to love OT. But that's one of them definitely.
My archives – if you go wayyy back in time on the sidebar – start around second half of first semester OT school, so reading way back then is most applicable to y'all….my blog has struggled as of late, making transition to practitioner.
If any of you guys have any questions, thoughts, comments, fears, overwhelming desires to run away……share them. AND I PROMISE IT WILL BE OKAY.
