I'm finishing up my first year as an OMS-I and am so grateful for the chance to become a doctor. I'm non-traditional (44), a mom to three (25, 20, and 13), and my husband has had to keep his job in a town 5 hours away so I'm also doing this alone with my 13 year old. I used MomMD as a sounding board when I was on the pre-med/prerequisite journey, but got side-tracked during school.
I'm back to say.... YOU CAN DO THIS!! I had a great year even though there was turmoil and strife, a few failed tests along the way, patient encounters that were difficult and a general sense of not really "belonging" with the rest of the class. If you are a woman who is going through medical school, non-traditional, and struggling with the loneliness - please message me! If you already know of a group that exists for us - please let me know. I'd love to make contact with people who understand my struggles. The 24 year old single girl really doesn't have the same concerns or worries that I do.
Glad to be back - I hope to help mentor others if I can.
