SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) This one is mostly directed at veterinarians or veterinary students. So this dream of mine to become a veterinarian has been with me since I was a child. So much of who I am is governed by my love for animals and desire to be a vet that up until this point I feel like I've had tunnel vision. I'm nearing time to start applying, but all of a sudden reality is hitting me: the debt, the stress, the impact it would have on my ability to have a family, etc. I'm wondering what some of your experiences are. What is your life like now as a veterinarian? Do you think at this time the veterinary profession is strong? How are you handling debt? Do you have/want a family? I feel that I have been driven by passion for so long that I was ignoring the reality of it all. Now I'm wondering if it is worth it. Have you ever felt like this?
