Digital Irritation: Diary of a Nursing Student

Thursday, October 13, 2005


I just learned the most bizarre thing and had to share it with the rest of the world. I was literally reading my Pharmacology (drug) textbook read the passage that I am about to describe, dropped my book and ran over to my computer. If there was ever something to blog about this is it.

I am reading a chapter about Antidepressants and the different drugs that can treat it. One of the types of drugs used to treat depression are called tricyclic antidepressants. They are a pretty mild treatment and appear to be quite effective. Apart from that, they also tend to create a phenomena called a yawngasm. Yes, you guessed it, a spontaneous orgasm when one yawns. How wild is that? It kind of inspires one to tinker with depression. It makes me think differently about all the yawning that goes on in some of my classes. They say that yawning is contagious....

Just a random thought I thought I'd share with ya'll. I've got to go and finish my reading. Diana i'm sorry that this is not a very beefy entry, maybe next time.

This is the assistant editor for which is a medical publication offering hospital news, information and reviews. We also cover a wide variety of medical topics, some of these articles being relevant to nursing schools and issues around their prospective students (scholarships, grants, etc). We are in the process of giving the nursing industry a dedicated section from our site and are currently seeking online resources which can be offered to our readers of this section.
