Entering medical school is no joke. It is time consuming. It eats up time for family, time for friends, time for a special someone and time for yourself.
It is isolating and quite frequently depressing. But my boyfriend is. I am a witness of his everyday dread and breakdowns.
Being in a relationship with a med student is really complicated and it is not easy. It may never be. You just have to be tough. You both have to.
Most of their time is for studying alone in order to stay alive in their survival of the fittest kind of world AKA: Medical School. So, never make them feel guilty for having to do so. Never ever. Be their cheerleader. Remember that they are on their way in reaching their dreams and believe me, they would love to share it with someone special. And that someone is you.
I doubt professional doctors know everything as well. And, you MUST listen. Worst comes to worst in the relationship, there will be times often that you will feel taken for granted. As early as now, I am telling you to drop it.
Just imagine how toxic their life is right now, with tons of reports, exam weeks and rotations all at the same time. It takes a lot of time on an ongoing basis to keep up with their materials, their tranxes and past-evaluations. You must be thankful enough for the limited time that they can offer.
You should also pursue your OWN career while being supportive. You cannot expect them as well to be there all the time to do stuff with you. You HAVE to have your own friends, hobbies and interests. You have to save your own sanity. Learn to suffice yourself. Doing so would cause too much despair on your part.
Remember that your relationship is unique. Yes, it may seem like too much work on your end, but you should also recollect the efforts and sacrifices that your medical student partner is doing to keep the relationship on the ground.
Honestly, I once doubted our relationship. It was exhausting and everything suddenly felt like it was about to shatter. At the end of the day, it will always be him and I just cannot see myself with someone else. He has always been my rock and his hard work and determination inspires me to be the very best How to survive dating a doctor that I can be. Through it all, to what may come next, I want to be there on his most successful day and I want him to be on mine.
And I hope the same for you and your med student. These words are for us all. Beyond Worthyby Jacqueline Whitney. You may unsubscribe at any time. Scrubs Entering medical school is no joke.
