Dating a third year resident, you must create an account or log in to vote on posts on reddit.
Ah, my dear, if a certain rock musician had obeyed your dictum about not being involved with medical students about twenty-seven years ago I work in a hospital as well, in the Quality dept. I am dating a resident and in the past had avoided dating medical people, it is definitely extremely hard, but i couldn't let this one go even if his schedule sucks. Show up at work unannounced to surprise your resident.

Beyond heartache, you'll learn to hate yourself My sister has worked in a hospital for over 40 years, and she's seen the pattern a LOT, too. Ask to see pictures, ask questions, be interested, even though you are bummed you weren't there. Of course some of my rotations were much easier, and we spent a lot of time together when we could. I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to be with you today.

Libido was shot due to sleep deprivation, she thought it was her.
Your resident probably doesn't know enough to actually help, even if he or she wanted to -- and, most likely, he or she doesn't want to. You must accept that you will come second, but it's not your resident's fault.
She worked for over 20 years on the teaching floor, so she saw all the young residents
