Find ways to commiserAte! Everyone on this forum was so supportive sharing their stories whether they were in my same boat or have been out of residency for many years!

Also- find a theme song. I found mine late in the year but it made me laugh and smile even when things were getting nuts. I would listen to it when I thought I would lose my mind and on th e way to work every morning for mental preparation.

"nobody's gonna break my stride, nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no! I got to keep on movin!"

My toddler even know all the words now!

If it makes you feel any better, I feel like a moron at least once a day! Intern year FTW!

babylove, your theme song is great. Good for you for having an upbeat song ... I always felt like the soundtrack to intern year was something like The Mountain Goats' "This Year" or maybe Flogging Molly's "The Worst Day Since Yesterday".

Needless to say, I despised my intern year.

Ok, I am totally dating myself but one of my theme songs (another being hey ya by outkast. And stayin' alive which is also my code blue theme song):

If you wake up and don't want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You'll see things in a different way.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you've done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

All I want is to see you smile,
If it takes just a little while,
I know you don't believe that it's true,
I never meant any harm to you.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Don't you look back,
Don't you look back

Ps... And the feeling like a moron phenomenon? Doesn't ever go away. Embrace it :)
