Who I am - Im still the same idiot who wears a Christmas jumper in November. But I am happier and better connected in my professional life than ever before. Social media has enriched my life. Above all I have had SO MUCH FUN. If I can, you can too! But if thats not enough
In Amsterdam this lovely gent came up to me; this is Jens, an EM doc from Sweden; he recognised me from the video and wanted to tell me that since reading the blog post and watching the video he teaches his juniors to use local anaesthetic for ABGs.
