I am asking this question at the beginning of my journey. I'm a M0 at this point. I start in the fall in Oregon. I've seen these types of questions posted on the general doctor forums but not specifically toward non-trads who deal with different life scenarios due to age and other complications when starting the process. So I am wondering not that you have or are in the process: 1) What expectations were met? 2) What expectations were not met? 3) If you have a family, how did they cope with your decision and then the application of that decision?] 4) Do you love what you do? Thanks for your time.
