Every medical student you know, regardless of how sane, insane or walking the fine line between them they appeared to be, is officially as mad as a hatter this month!
Why, you ask? It's exam month!
You see, at first we suddenly appear to have acquired a massive amount of skills. suddenly we're the best chefs, painters, photographers, listeners, writers, bestfriends, boyfriends, girlfriends, personal shoppers, botanists, house keepers, movie critics, audiophiles, et cetera. It is absolutely wondrous what a medical student is capable of under stress!
Don't ask us how our studies are going, what chapter we're on or if we're on schedule. You'd be opening Pandora's box. Mood swings, borderline clinical depression, crying, insomnia and even psychosomatic manifestations.
Don't ask questions, just give us a hug and accept us for who we are.
