I hate this day. I hate tomorrow. I want to crawl into a dark place. But I won’t.
As much as I am struggling, and as much as I want to throw in the towel some times… There are incredible things and people in this new life of mine.
Woven between the neuro panic today, there were some bright spots. If you looked really hard and kind of squinted, they really shone through.
I survived giving my first pelvic exam. As strange as it sounds, the experience was exhilarating. I was sweating… terrified I’d look like a fool. But my patient was kind, and my teacher was patient.
Stress, inspiration, random hugs and little acts of kindness… These are the things that will get me through this adventure.
… and I promise that I WILL make it through.
