When you are dumbfounded by that question, she explains how you wrote out your medical history as if you were charting.

    I didn't even realize I had done it! Scary.

    You know when you come home tell your husband about your clinical that night and he totally doesn't understand you but just politely listens and nods head!!!!!

    When you go to bed at 2 am... wake up at 5 am to make it in early to study in the lab... halfway thru the day you look down and realize you are wearing two different shoes!

    When you fall asleep most nights with the lights on... papers spread all over.. and you wake up frantic you've not studied enough..

    When every dream you have at night has something to do with a procedure you saw or a disease you read about.

    Kind of along the same lines.
    When sleeping, you dream about your skills check off that is the next day. Not only dream about it, but talk your way through each step. Out loud.
