Things are to the point now where even taking a 10 minute break every two hours, especially typing this, makes me feel guilty. I'm not depressed but the grind is wearing on me. I understand why the suicide rate amongst med students is the highest it's ever been. It gets easy to despair when you constantly feel behind. My saving graces are a great family and a private Facebook group for my class where pretty much everybody in my class has griped about #medschoolife.

They keep telling me it gets better 3rd year. At this point, I just want to get to spring break. Spring break starts Friday at noon for me. I just want a day off. A real one without the constant mental nag that I need to be studying. That won't even come until summer break because the reality is I will still have to study on spring break.

Please keep bickering and arguing here. The distraction I get from this board some days is the only mental break I get from my worries.

What made you decide to go to med school?

Allow me to introduce you to a career in corrections.

Some images cannot be unseen.

I'm now up to 5 times getting sick this year. Twice viral in January. Positive strep cultures in Feb and again earlier this month. Now I'm coming down sick (viral) again. I'm not sure I'm going to have an immune system in 3 years.

Wonder if I can get one of those bubbles.

So I still hate school. But just got word today I get to do my clinical rotations in Joplin for 3rd and 4th year. This can give me a better than average shot at getting into the internal medicine residency down there. It also reduces the likelihood I'll have to move my family again. Very good things.

I'd be 100% stoked, but the threat of board exams still looms over my head like a raincloud. And in order to have the best opportunity as a D.O., I have to take the D.O. board exam and am electing to take the M.D. board exam. My savings are going to get crushed.

Just moved to Joplin in anticipation of starting my clinical years. Ohio is definitely on my list for 4th year out-rotations where I start looking at residencies. Indiana and Iowa are looking great too.
