We just ended our 6 week course of our med-surge rotation. I lost 2 very close friends/study group mates to grades. We've been together through thick and thin since first semester, have studied together almost every day, and went everywhere together. I've been with them more than I have been with my own family. I have always been blessed with things my whole life and I have never had a day where my heart ached so much that I broke down until yesterday. I never cry, I haven't cried in many years, but it just hurt me so much to have lost friends that I know deserve to pass even more than I do and I wish I could give them my grade. Just needed somewhere to type and let some things out...thanks.
