So I guess that I am kind of venting, and I apologise. Maybe I am just having one of those days. End of the first year of residency, tired, stressed, worried that I am not 'getting it' (although according to everyone I am working with I am doing fine, even doing very well in some areas.) Feel that I can't keep up with the reading, and when I do and learn something, it has a half life of about a month and disappears while on another rotation. Anyone ever wish they had picked a less stressful route? I was originally shooting for physical therapy, prior to applying for medical school; I sometimes wonder what my life would be like had I chosen that. Maybe less interesting/challenging, but I probably would be more comfortable and a whole lot less stressed from day to day, and I can always find interesting/challenging hobbies that I don't have time for right now! I feel right now, if it were not for wife/kids I could easily just walk (!) and go into something much easier. Demotivated...!
