Salaries for doctors are declining, with Richard telling me that some nurses now make more than the lowest paid medical specialty – pediatrics.
So no, dating a doctor does not equal abundant wealth.
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?
Basically, this means I never see him—and when I do, he’s half asleep.
On the bright side, it makes our time together more valuable.
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.
The Best Motivator Dating a doctor is a huge motivator for me.
I want to be by Richard’s side and support him through residency, because god knows it’s tiring, back-breaking work that is just plain shitty.
He often tells me how happy he is to return to a clean home, warm meal, and me in the doorway–and I think that makes residency all the more bearable for him.
