@LarissaW That is fabulous!

With starting med school soon that is a great thing.

My A1c (actually, there was no such thing as A1c back then) when I started dental school I estimate to be in the 10-13 range. I’m sorry to say I don’t remember a lot from that first year.

@CatLady DEFINITELY a lot of work and trial and error and frustrations… but all worth it to feel way more in control on a daily basis!

Yes! I have to take care of myself before I’m in a place to help others I’m finding

Geez I don’t know how you made it through, but certainly glad you did :slight_smile: . Impressive nonetheless

It was quite an awakening. After having or being very close to a 4.0 grade average in high school and two years of college, I had a hard time just passing in the first year of dental school.

I knew it shouldn’t be so difficult and I’d better do something.

It deserves congrats what ever it is!!! Yay you!

EH clocked in at 5.9 in his recent visit, and that felt like winning. I might’ve hopped up and done a little sub-6 dance right in the office. :relaxed:
