As the first month of residency has come and gone, I am beginning to harbor the constant feelings of inadequacy. There's always something I feel as though I can do better, like having the foresight to know the social dispo and mention it before someone asks, to following up with a discharge of a patient being set and ready to go but who ends up staying because he feels like he's not ready to leave yet. As a prelim vying for a categorical spot in the coming match cycle, is this normal? Over the past couple of weeks I feel as though as I'm totally lagging behind, even though no one's told me. I'm in constant anxiety because I know I have to be on the top of my game, but I feel like I'm always apologizing for something that I should know or know how to do. Any reassurance or constructive criticism is welcome as I need to either relax or definitely step things up a few notches in the coming weeks before app season opens.
