I was with my wife throughout most of this process. I wasn't there in undergrad, but we were married when she applied to med school and I was there when she applied to residencies and matched at Duke. It's a long journey and a TON of work. When the rest of the world is celebrating, you're working. But it was worth it.
What's scary is the idea of going through it all, amassing all of that debt, losing all of that time and then the govt interjecting and sayin that physicians are paid too much and capping earnings or some such nonsense. I could see that happening.
Good luck on the journey. Let me know if you ever need a sounding board. But you are right, it will be worth it.
