As we all know, third year blows hard. I really hate it. I won't go into detail but I'm sure a lot of people have felt the way I feel. I don't have MDD and I'm not suicidal or anything, but I'm definitely at one of the lowest points in my life. Only 3 weeks left but it's taking everything I have to finish third year. I know 4th year is generally considering to be great, so I'm looking forward to it. I have my EM rotations squared away and I'm looking forward to getting back into the ED and actually doing/learning stuff that I find interesting. My question to you guys/gals... once you got into residency did you find that you became happier? Obviously a resident is much busier with loads more responsibility than a medical student, but hopefully doing something you actually enjoy and feel is important with your time will make all this worth it. Thanks!
