Being a medical student is depressing meWatch
My advice is don't feel that you need to learn everything and give yourself time to exercise. Usually what comes up on the exam will be a small fraction of the huge amount of content that is taught. Don't get stressed over the details.
Learn the basic concepts and learn a few facts then leave it at that then go enjoy time with friends or family. Your health comes first.
I honestly don't know why a medical degree is glorified so much. For the majority of the time, it's a stressful and overwhelming course. I love science and the human body fascinates me but the amount of content we're covering is exhausting. I don't see my friends anymore, I barely have time to exercise - every day I roll out of bed, get dressed, and study for hours upon hours. Then I go back to bed, sleep and repeat. I'm tired and depressed all of the time. Am I the only med student who's feeling so down?
I ask that you check in with yourself regularly and if you're feeling really bad, please speak to a doctor or reach out to someone for therapy. 7cups.com is a free website where you can chat to someone (not a counsellor) about how you're feeling. Keep getting it off your chest and disclose how you're feeling to your peers maybe. They might feel the same. Just don't keep it under wraps if it's really bothering you day to day.
