**Update: Dr. Dashing wisked me away from work and took me out for a lunch date, what a treat :) Earned him a new title - he seems to be dashing more often than not...dashing off to the hospital, clinic, or lunch! I think this flows better too...don't you?s**Fatigue [noun]: temporary loss of strength and energy resulting from hard physical or mental work. Syn: exhaustion, wear out, tire.
Yes, I am all of the above. I used this medical term for a reason...I'm suffering from fatigue due to extreme hours working on medical school presentations. This is the part of my story where I discuss the not-so-glamorous side to being a medical school student's significant other.
Last night, I even headed to Dr. Dashing's school library in my peach pajamas for a late night rendezvous with a computer and a diabetes pharmacology table. (My confidence in treating Type II diabetes has increased 10 fold). Hair pulled back in a bun, dripping wet from my post-gym shower, I expected to see no-one. What was I thinking??! Medical school = studying. I was lucky enough to meet some fellow 1st year students - oh what they have ahead of them. After a brief reprieve, I assisted in some early morning presentation prep and printing which required a 5:30am rise and shine call. Seems like I'm the med student these days! Lucky for me, we're 2 years down.... 3 to go.
