  I understand exactly what you mean. I'm a senior now and I'm still going through hard times. Residency is not easy but it does shape your character. You have my full support, you can do this! If you ever want to talk, contact me on Skype my ID is : successgirl2. Maybe we can discuss some solutions to the problems. Chin up and good luck!

  What is the hardship you are going through? Is it knowledge issues, work ethic, issues with other residents, issues with PD.....?

Finished residence and know the feeling, but opening up to someone outside your program and family may help like close friends who have or who are going through residence with you.

  Put up with the BS, over and over. You will continue to have difficult times, even as an attending, It will be unpredictable BS all over, always. It's the nature of the trade. But...
No matter how hard it gets, life will be a bit easier at some point.

Think about the hardships associated with starting over or not finishing residency and compare that with your comfortable life when practicing after you finish. It's not worth quitting.

If nothing else works in the end, do it for the $$$.
