So, this is a bit of a vent and I wanted feedback from other experiences you all may have had. Giving a bit of back story, I should be returning to school this fall to finish my prerequisites, take the MCAT and eventually apply for medical school. I'm 25, married with two young children. My husband is actually 100% supportive of my dream and goal to possibly become an OBGYN (I say possibly, because I could end up falling in love with another specialty). This past year, I've been volunteering with my local hospital and it made me realize that I do want to become a physician, anyway, I haven't told too many people because I come from a rather small city and people gossip. You're usual issues when you live in a small area. However, I did tell my mother and while she seemed supportive in the beginning, a few days ago, she grilled me. I don't mind people asking me 193089032 questions as to why I want to go down this path, but later in the conversation she begins to have a go at me, accusing me of wanting to be wonder woman, either abandoning my kids or my husband chasing after this goal. The irony? My grandmother is a physician and my mother was a full grown adult when she returned to school and in my case, my children will be much older by the time I get to medical school, they won't be babies. Thoughts?
