I quit my first job as a vet. In fact, I was there for a week and a half. I quit without notice, and without having a job lined up. That was hard. But I did not feel like I had failed. After a few years we start to hear that many of our classmates have changed jobs, often not lasting the full one year contract that they signed up for. But why?

A Day in the Life of a Veterinarian
Welcome to the Home Page of my personal blog!
Please remember that these are my own thoughts and meant to create a window into my mind, showing a Day in the Life of this Veterinarian.
We have every day struggles, just as everyone would, and then we have an immense amount of work related stress, on top of those every day struggles.
We suffer from mental health conditions, including anxiety and depression, and we need to find an outlet for those thoughts. This blog is one of my outlets. What do you struggle with that writing your thoughts down could help you with?
How to Navigate my Blog
If you have been following along, you may have noticed that I have a ton of interests! I have broken this blog into categories. I created a new drop down menu to navigate to specific topics - scroll over the menu above.
Under Pet Health and Nutrition you are going to find some case information. A lot of it is geared towards veterinary students, as I hope that when they run into some of these cases, it helps them think through the cases.
The newest feature on the blog is the area of Indi's Reviews - you can find this from Indi's Home Page.
I also talk about my struggles with anxiety and depression - the whole reason I started this blog - mostly under Taking Care of You.
I started a new category for My Fertility Journey - essentially, this is where I am dumping my brain from all the things I am learning about how to conceive when you are a professional female, who put off having children until her late 30's.
I hope that this blog page will have something for you! Enjoy!
