: To all those that I have interacted with here the most, whether open or via PM - you've just been a special part of my online life -and I hope one day, real, virtual life - this is the one place where I want to keep in touch with others and their lives, as well as share mine. I felt so happy that I could share both my struggles and eventual success at completing medical school and sharing the last two years + (I joined in March 2009) of it in some way or another - whether through posts or chat. When I was in Europe, many of you were my connection back home (those of you in the US especially, I must admit) and that meant a lot, as I only got to go home twice each year and even one year recently, I didn't go home for 10 months straight (academic year 2009-2010)Lifetime Achievement Award
