Taking care of yourself during medical school

“Like some insidious conditions, feelings can fester. They can spread like cancer, and sap the spirit of nourishment until it starts to die, riddled with doubt and sensations of inadequacy. They can degrade the soul, as though it were suffering from a systemic inflammatory disease. But this progression, like many conditions of the flesh, is treatable. With early detection, the process can be arrested and cured. Talking about feelings, journaling, praying, or finding an outlet in wellness activities that channel joy is as essential to academically thriving as studying, practicing, and pushing to meet the demands of a health care provider.”

Stephanie Wottrich is a medical student.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Joy is our antibiotic. Let not your stings fester.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/08/joy-is-our-antibiotic-let-not-your-stings-fester.html)
