Many of you who read the Authentic Medicine Blog/Gazette followed me from my days doing the Placebo Journal. It was the only medical journal that used to make doctors laugh (on purpose). We lasted ten years and it was awesome. We ripped on everyone. What you see in Gomerblog or ZDoggMD are ripple effects from the Placebo Journal.
Anyway, I initially wrote a short “email” parody called Diary of a Pharmaceutical Rep (Drug Rep) in the early 2000’s before social media was in full blast. It spread like wildfire mostly through the reps themselves. It follows two reps (one starting with a sparkle in her eye and the other retiring who is dead inside) and it occurs in Maine. I really think it is funny and even though it is fiction there is a lot of REAL stuff in there. If you want a laugh and can afford the $14.95 then I would be honored if you would purchase it and give it a nice review.
Though this story chronicles two drug reps it really is about the healthcare system and relates to doctors and the public as well. Trust me, this will make you laugh.
IF YOU KNOW ANY DRUG REPS THEN PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO THEM!! Or at least tell them about it.
