Top Five Posts Over The Last Month

The most popular content on Nostrums between 5 Nov and 5 Dec.

1.  Doctors Ger Sick Too - My Appendicitis Story.  (19 Jun 10)  The post that won't die...everybody stop reading it. Please.  {Most popular post of the last year]

2.  What's The Difference Between Lice And Bed Bugs.  (19 Sep 10)  I think it was the pictures.  Yucky.

3.  Should Nurse Anesthetists Work Unsupervised By Doctors.  (11 Aug 10) My answer was "Yeah, sometimes."  Probably all the readers were nurses.

4.  Doctors Opting Out Of Medicare.  Some Data.  (26 Aug 10)  The numbers keep climbing, the politicos keep denying.

5.  Narcisssists No Longer Have A Narcissistic Personality (?).   (30 Nov 10)  If you've spent a decade becoming an expert, you end up arguing about definitions.
