scientific blabbing

ive started, okay it a little too late to say start, on my dissertation paper
its all about endometriosis and I almost know too well the effects of this mysterious condition on women.
ive seem really strong and cheerful ladies reduce themselves to tears during checkups because of the discomfort and pain that it brings...and the countless ladies out there who have monthly drastic pain that warrants a MC all probably have some form of endometriosis.
the only problem: endometriosis diagnosis for sure is via laparoscopy which is a day surgery.....:(
so most docs prefer to treat symptoms and ignore unless it gives problems like infertility or cysts since it is benign.
okay maybe i should put it the other way. patients prefer less invasive measures for minor stuffs that isnt life threatening. ah thats better.
and this simple yet mostly unknown condition is driving me nuts now.....!? tsk tsk

anyways... i am hooked on this book called "Bad Science" by Ben Goldacre.
interesting how common sensical stuffs that I have been rambling on at home is all in this book, and wait~ theres more!!! so ive been wise to stay clear of all those rubbish and save my money on other enjoyments~ ha!
although i do believe in TCM, and other stuffs not from the traditional 'Western' medicine area, there are certain hocus pocus still all out there waiting to catch its prey and it would seriously do u well to use some brain before jumping into anything~ Yeah u feel good....have u heard of placebo effect?? tsk

oh... not forgetting that ive got a wiki on Post natal syndrome thats really bugging me plus something interesting Tourette Syndrome for presentation~ ha... thats gonna be fun.
but DAMN 2/3 are O&G related~ I just love my job~ ha!!!
