Let me get this out of the way: my husband Y is in med school, and I'm very proud of him. In fact, I'd be proud of him whatever he decided to do. Except for the hypothetical situation we often discuss where he admits he might let our dog die for 10 million dollars. I would not be proud of him then. Maybe. It is ten million dollars...
You won't find a lot of cheerleading on this blog about how proud I am of Y and how hard med school is. Mostly because I just don't think that makes for interesting reading. Hearing that over and over again would get old, right? And secondly, obviously I'm proud of him and obviously it's hard. I like to focus on the parts of this weird experience that make me laugh.
In fact, that's what I like to do in all parts of my life.
