When I see Richard hard at work, it also inspires me to improve and challenge myself in my own way. In fact, when I first met him, I had no idea he was even a full fledged doctor. Do you know anyone working in medicine or in the healthcare field?He’s always encouraging me to go to the gym, to pursue my writing, to work on this blog, and to reach for my dreams. But I believe, doctor or not, a relationship is all about supporting one another and making sacrifices. No one has a better response to “what happened at work today? What is it like to become a doctor in your country?
I mean, seriously, it’s hard for me to complain about my job when Richard is working 100 hour work weeks and dealing with life-or-death emergencies.
It helps put my small, first world problems into perspective.
So even though I live with a doctor, I still have to go see a doctor.
Don’t get me started on trying to get a doctor to see the doctor.

The Catch22 community includes graduate students and young professionals aged 22-40 who have attended the nation's top universities and colleges.On top of their day job, they also have to read volumes upon volumes of medical journals to keep up with their profession.They’re always striving to become more educated and thus, better doctors. They make great mentors, with Richard being my #1 supporter. But It’s Worth It I’m definitely not dating Richard for the prestige or paycheck of a doctor.Doctors are, for the most part, extremely responsible and determined.How else could you go through 8 years of schooling and 3 years of residency without losing your mind?When we finally have a day off together, we’ll do something special like go on a short trip to a nearby town (San Diego! ) and sometimes even splurge on long weekend getaways (like a cruise we’ll be going on together next week! When we actually have time together, we really want to make it count.
