I went to acupuncture today to help my back. I go about once a month to this phenomenal traditional Chinese medicine doctor in my area to keep myself out of pain. For the first time in my 3.5 years seeing him, I chatted with him after the session as he was closing up shop. I … More The Power of One

You might ask why I started this website and blog. Well, this is the honest answer. Sometimes I get a crazy idea in my head, such as (1) go to UNC instead of MIT; (2) quit my top 2 PhD program even though I’m doing well in it; or (3) start a website for people … More Why I Started This Site
I had such a great conversation with a coworker today about life, healthcare (the industry we work in), and this website. I always go away feeling wonderful after our conversations because she’s one of those people that respects so much what I’m trying to do here and continuously builds me up.

This card specifically was referring to my recent C-section to remove an ectopic pregnancy (that was very much a desired pregnancy) when it ruptured and almost killed me.
