Spelling Woes

Today I found out that for the last 4 years of med school, I have been spelling the word “pruritus” wrong.

I had been spelling it as “pruritis”

No one had corrected me. In 4 years.

Today I was corrected by my gastroenterology supervisor via email as part of a research project questionnaire I had put together. There were 2 other consultants on this email chain.

“Please note the correct spelling of pruritus” he had said.

Eughhhhhh how embarrassing.

Why did I never know this. I’ve read textbooks. Somehow my mind has accepted the wrong spelling.

Gah. I suck at spelling. It’s so sad. So sad and embarrassing.
