I am newly graduated MD, a firefighter/soldier's wife, and a mother to a toddler son as well as a baby on his/her way! I was at the top of my class in college and in medical school. This makes a lot of people think I have it all together, but I really don't. By some miracle I managed to juggle all of my responsibilities but it wasn't been easy. I wouldn't trade my experiences for the world because they have made me who I am, which is a much stronger person than I was a few years ago. I am in the middle of a "year off" from medicine that I am using to stay home with my son, making up for all the time I had to spend away from him during the last year and a half. My husband and son are my world and I'm striving each day to become a better person for them as I try to find my place in this world.
