Why am I such a fucking idiot? I feel so stupid every day that I'm in internal medicine. Ugh. I sit there and i'm asked questions and I just am SO BLANK. I used to be smart, what happened? Maybe I should go into obs/gyn, it's the only thing I've actually felt intelligent at.

You've advanced in your career and the questions have got harder. You are smart - the people questioning you are just more experienced. Positive self-talk is really what's called for at this point! (Meanwhile I'm pretty much feeling the same :) )

Don't beat yourself up! I remember my third year medicine rotation. For the first three weeks I walked around absolutely terrified and completely baffled. All of the patients are so complicated and have a billion things wrong with them. You eventually start to recognize patterns and things get easier. By the end of the rotation you'll be shocked by how much you've learned.

You're not an idiot. Like Milk+2 said, you're not getting dumber, the questions are getting harder!
