Halfway through my internship I had seizure number two and was carted out on a stretcher.  Two weeks later I returned to finish the internship, a bit more slowly.  But I finished by Thanksgiving. I have a feeling they do not talk about my brilliant clinical skills.

I earned six units
Of continuing education
At the place I interned
Three years ago now.
The people with whom
I worked
Were all there.
We talk about you
A lot
Each one said.
Of course they did not say
What the talk
Was about.
I have my suspicions.
I am famous.
I am infamous.
I am probably
The only intern they had
Who seized,
Fell and hit my head,
Left by ambulance.
