Just wanted to take a second to introduce myself. I'm Callie and my boyfriend Robert is an M1 here in Atlanta. We aren't engaged (yet!) but we've been together for over 2 years and are really excited for the future.
A little background- we went to high school together but didn't know each other. We met randomly in Mexico when he randomly got stuck there and I happened to be there with some girlfriends. So many circumstances had to fall perfectly into place for us to meet. :)
We spent a year long-distance, I graduated from college and spent a year with him in Virginia while he finished school and then we both moved back to Atlanta (we're both from here) in May for him to go to med school. My hope is that this roller coaster will be a little bit less lonely with both our families here.
I've heard nightmare stories about Med school since we started dating BUT we keep telling ourselves that people do it everyday and we are so lucky to have found each other.
I have some questions for the veterans:
1. Do you all have family near? Is that a source of strength at all?
2. What do you wish someone would have told you on day 1?
I've been reading your posts all summer. Thanks for being such inspiration to me! :)
