Pathology of the Med Student

Stamina waning
Along with my patience
For the number of patients
Presenting with an emesis of symptoms
For my now sclerotic emotions
Clouded by thoughts
More pernicious than their anemia
More malignant
Than the neoplasm
Spreading through their nodes
As I suffer stenosis of the mind
Atresia of my thought process
Lysis of the little logic I have left
And necrosis of my sanity.
Is it C? Diabetes?
