Have been seeing a totally different side of medicine from what I'm used to.
18 year old girls, HIV positive and pregnant. Homeless elderly men with fullblown AIDS who can't afford housing. 27 year old men (younger than I am) with a CD4 count of 10. People who can't afford even acetaminophen.
It humbles you, and makes you feel blessed.
In the last 3 days I've seen more HIV patients than all of my 3 years in Rochester.
