8 Things You Understand If You're Addicted To 'Grey's Anatomy' And Still Not Seeking Medical Attention
ABC

I am now on my fifth round of watching the many seasons of "Grey's Anatomy," and I have no regrets. Medicine was my interest before I started watching the show, which only makes me more of a fan. I wish I could say I wasn't addicted, but let's face it: I have a problem that millions of others face as well. I am addicted to this show. Here are some things only Grey's addicts understand.

1. You have unrealistic expectations of your doctors

Giphy

I now expect all surgeons to be stunningly good-looking with drama-filled lives that I get to hear about as a patient. I know this is completely false, but it would make getting surgery a lot more pleasant.

2. You have unrealistic expectations of love/relationships

Giphy

Meredith and Derek (may he rest in peace) will forever be a life goal. Now if I meet any guy who's not a brain surgeon with perfect hair, I won't be interested.

3. You are used to everyone dying

Giphy

"Why do you like that show? Doesn't everyone die?" Well, yes but...

4. You have unrealistic expectations of friendships 

Giphy

Meredith & Christina forever.

5. Crying is normal

Giphy

I might have had a hysterical breakdown when McDreamy died.

6. You're just a little scared of planes

Giphy

R.I.P Lexi & Mark.

7. ... and hospital shootings

Giphy

Arguably one of the scariest Grey's episodes ever.

8. You know more medical lingo than you probably should

Giphy

Call a code blue!

I don't think I'll ever stop watching "Grey's Anatomy," even if it's season 167 and everyone is dead. If you're as addicted as me, I'm sure you can relate.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
