Ah! Got you there, didn’t I?

They say when trouble comes, it comes in threes. For example, this month, I have three soul crushing, morale destroying, confidence pulverizing examinations lined up one after the other. (That might explain this post!)

Anyways, so I was reading a lot of clinical buzzwords and stuff and I realized that one of the most important things is clinical triads, and there are tons of them. So, I decided to make a neat little list of the eponymous clinical triads only.
