Hello , my heart is still beating and I am still here !
These past couple of weeks have been the hardest I have ever had to face and I know that come 10am tomorrow , it will all be over !
I managed to get out of my exams alive …. Just. I am actually pleased with how they went even though the stress rocketing through me was immense. I arrived at the library at 10am and didn’t leave till about 7 at night. Normal for exam season but it was hell. Ive had a passing in the family …. Well two passings but the last one was especially hard. My nan passed away 9 days before my dissertation was due in and 11 days before my first exam. I had to stay in Preston even though every inch of my screamed to go home.
So yup , library time gave me a bit of escape from home and I managed to do my exams and hand in my dissertation ( all be it 9 days after the deadline , due to a much needed extension!)
Every exam that I completed and the submission of my dissertation and beloved ragged lab book made the reality of my medical degree take hold. I am currently on the way back up to Preston on the train grinning like the Cheshire Cat because in 4 years time I will be Dr Abbie Tutt. Dr Abbie 😂
I remembered how my old Yorkshire ( because he would never let us forget it) head teacher used to boast how none of his students have ever gotten into medicine….. Wonder if I can get his email ….
