Medical Monday {June Edition}

Lately, I seem to be getting a few interesting Google search terms:

should I date a med student
is it easy being a doctor's wife
is being a doctor's wife lonely
are doctors wife lonely
should I marry a doctor
do doctors want trophy wife

Those are the clean ones. I get plenty of perverted ones, too. But, let's just stick with these for today, okay?

Generally speaking, I'm an upbeat type of gal. When stuff goes bad, I'm usually able to laugh at the absurdity of the situation. My sense of humor is pretty well intact. Had it not been for this gift (and I do consider it a gift), I'm pretty sure I never would have made it this far.

Friday, I had a bad case of the Birthday Blues. Now, I learn Doc H is having trouble finding a colleague who is willing to cover for him for D2's high school graduation. Furthermore, he must take call the weekend of her graduation, meaning there is an incredibly good chance he won't be able to make the party. Forget any notion I had of him helping me with or during the party. 


Before you go in search of your violin or offer to throw me a pity party, I offer the flip side of the coin. 

I have a husband who choses a birthday card which calls me a "goddess", uses words like "love" and "worship", and writes me that the best part of his day is coming home to me. 

If that doesn't wipe the Birthday Blues away, I don't know will! 

So, I leave it to those to make their own assessment if this is the life for them. There's just too many factors. Too many variables. 

You just have to hang tough.

  1. Hanging Tough! Happy Medical Mondays:-)

  2. when it comes to the medical field, time off is golden!
    I'm just beginning my career as a RN and am excited and nervous about it at the same time.
    The hours are unconventional, every holiday is workable, but touching someone else's life is immeasurable.
    I've been keeping up with you on here for a while now!
    Hoping I'll be around a bit more now that nursing school is over!

  3. I really appreciate your honesty of the situation, but your lightheartedness about it as well. I'm terrified of the next years of our lives once residency starts but you make it seem bearable. Your humor has helped calm my fears about it all without being fake about how hard it can be as well... Love reading your blog.

  4. Happy June MM! You are so lucky that the best part of his day is coming home to you :)

  5. Aw, what a sweet post! What a blessing to be so loved!
