    Are you feeling defeated and profoundly miserable at work? Burnt out and exhausted? Feeling resentful and angry about your life circumstances. You are not alone- and that’s exactly why I recorded this podcast episode.
    In Today’s episode, I read through 3 different journal entries from when I was in residency in 2018. I dissect what exactly was making me miserable and some of the things I did that helped me start pulling myself out of my self-pity spiral.
    This episode is going to help you feel seen and understood and give you some tangible steps to get out of that dark place.

fellow burnt out OBGYN ,

Thank you!

I feel like this podcast is in my head in the best way possible! As a new attending, I have yet to find a colleague who seems to understand my struggles of burnout and the nagging voice in my head that this career is not the right fit. I can’t explain how refreshing it is to find a whole community of people with similar experience. This podcast is giving me hope that there is a way out and I’m so grateful to have found it!

Shining Light!

Since finding and reading her book Residency Drop Out, then tuning into her podcast, Chelsea’s work has been a lantern in the dark to shine some light on my own path. Her work has helped me get through so much confusion that I faced when I realized the dreams I held for my life in medicine were no longer my own. How much better can it get than saying, this podcast changed my life. Thank you, Chelsea, for helping light the way- <3 a fellow residency drop out

Relatable & Inspiring

I wish I had discovered this podcast sooner! I am 10 years into practicing clinical medicine but even back in residency I remember questioning if I was on the right career path. I felt like I was the only one that was feeling that medicine might not be the right fit for me that far into my training. Its so inspiring listening to her story as well as her podcast guests and it is encouraging me to look at my own life and make some changes!
