The Day I Quit Medicine.

This doctor quit medicine. It saved her life. (kevinmd.com)

It was January 4th, 2021. I had just had two great weeks of vacation. I had the blessing of seeing my parents and siblings on Christmas day during a pandemic, spend my second Christmas with my Fiancé, spend our first Christmas with our dogs and most of all, spend it healthy. I had it good. Then why did I cry the morning of Jan 4th, 2021? Because I realized I was burned out, exhausted and unhappy.
