Oh my God, does newFNP ever need to get her shit together.

For one, she misses clinic. She loves working at the research clinic because she has awesome colleagues. But she loves working at the community health clinic because she loves the work. (And has a handful of awesome colleagues in the midst of the wackiness.)
For two, how do ladies figure out A) if they want to have kids and B) when the hell to interrupt their very busy lives in order to do so? NewFNP is on the fence and she is also AMA. On the one hand, she sees an iPhone pic of BostonFNP holding her newborn and looking happier than quite literally ever before. On the other, she sees a thirty-something year old woman with an eviscerated perineum after a perineal wound repair dehiscence. NewFNP has a longstanding history of not inviting chaos into her personal life, yet completely acknowledges that kids are kind of a cool chaos. If only newFNP could be a dad...
For three, why in the world did newFNP consent to getting her cholesterol checked the Monday following the Christmas/birthday holiday weekend? How could newFNP, who practically survives on veggies, fruits, Omega-3 supplements and grains, have somewhat elevated triglycerides?? She'll tell you - a weekend full of shrimp dip, bagels and lox, mashed potatoes and birthday cake. NewFNP makes it a practice to completely invert her food pyramid December 24-26 and now look where that practice has landed her. Mother fuck. NewFNP hates not getting 100% on her FLP.
So it looks like newFNP has some shit to figure out this year.
Whatever... bring it.
