When our kids were little, my friend's daughter bumped her head hard. Instead of going to a clinic, my friend phoned me. OK, yes, I knew the signs of concussion and that they can be different in toddlers than adults, but I'm not a doctor! Not even close! A B.Sc. is not an MD. She turned out to be fine but I kept repeating to my friend that if she was at all concerned about her daughter, she should take the little one to a clinic and not rely on my opinion.
Does this happen to others who have a science degree (biology, microbiology, that sort of thing)? It seems to happen to me all the time. I regularly get phone calls from friends and relatives when they or someone they know receives a diagnosis and they don't know what it means. I guess I'm a walking medical dictionary. Try WebMD, people, it's more reliable!
