just curious, since i know next to nothing about healing stuff and because doctor friends are great to have when you're a writer. and if you're a doctor/writer, props to you because dang, that's awesome.
My parents are healthcare professionals, so I know a good bit of this and that. I could always ask, too, they’re used to me asking random questions about med. stuff for writing.
I'm going to med school.
I’m not medical exactly, but I’m in public health, so I know a good bit about disease spread and characteristics- that sort of thing. I also WAS going to do med school but changed my mind, so I do have a big interest and solid knowledge in that area too.
My grandma recently retired from being a nurse, and since I was young I've been taking notes from her (and recently put them into practice), and I have have a huge interest in that sort of stuff for cough writing purposes, so I'm open to questions.
I'm a nurse, but not in the US, so my training and job experiences will probably be a bit different. But I guess the medical bits are the same, so I can answer questions about those; or whatever else interests you, just bear in mind that my answers won't always ring true universally :)
