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

Attention: spoiler alert.

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

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


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


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


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

4. You have unrealistic expectations of friendships 


Meredith & Christina forever.

5. Crying is normal


I might have had a hysterical breakdown when McDreamy died.

6. You're just a little scared of planes


R.I.P Lexi & Mark.

7. ... and hospital shootings


Arguably one of the scariest Grey's episodes ever.

8. You know more medical lingo than you probably should


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.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I have been listening to Taylor Swift since her debut album. I remember getting her first album on CD when I was little. She hasn't always been my favorite, but this summer I rediscovered my love for her songs. I also met people who had listened to her newer stuff but hadn't listened to her original stuff, a tragedy I know.

I thought I would give my personal rankings of every Taylor Swift album, including my favorite song from the album. I know mine are different than several others, and that's OK.

From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.
