* New year yet I'm still behind in life...
  dream250 - 12/31/17 07:42
  No point of New Year in my life... I'm the dumbest slowest person there is. I hate myself... I'm way behind in relationship and education than everyone else in life. I was supposed to be going for residency interviews but no my miserable self couldn't study fast enough like others and apply for residency. I was given retarded brain by God and just life full of hardship and disappointments. Half of my life will be wasted cuz I'm slow at eveything. I really hate myself for not getting great scores like others.... How can others get 250-260s by studying for few months.. yet I study all day everyday all year long ... do everything possible to remember things... but yet I can barely be average! Why am I like this... :((( I can never get 250s.... It will always be just a dream...

Happy New year to everyone else... I don't deserve anything good in life.

  From above scenario, Which of the following statements is the most appropriate response?

A ) I understand your frustration, but let's explore why you seem to feel like this for a long time

B ) I see that you are frustrated, but if you can open your mind to alternate career options you might have a better outcome.

C) It may be helpful to consult a USMLE specialist who can suggest new study approaches

D) I can see that your lack of improvement has been frustrating; let's focus on a small goal we can agree on

E) I am concerned that depression may be contributing to your hopelessness about getting better

I can say if you will choose a correct answer and steadily work on it to improve daily, you will have a great year ahead...Life is much more precious than USMLE scores...HAPPY NEW YEAR...

  “The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.”― Ernest Hemingway

That breath that you just took that’s gift.

  Happy New Year to you guys. Hope you have a wonderful night of celebrations and many more wonderful days ahead. Yes, I was emotional and little depressed, but it is what it is. I'm going back to studying for the night. I have exam to deal with I can't take any time off until I pass this with good score. Happy 2018 to all & I pray we all get through this successfully. Am..
