I've been a diabetic for about fourteen years now, which basically means I see an endocrinologist roughly four times a year, my primary care physician roughly once a year, and my ophthalmologist once a year. I actually wasn't too savvy about the medical field till I came into 7th grade, when we learned some very basic anatomy. I loved learning about the endocrine system especially because I always felt some kind of connection to it. Haha. It kept me opening my textbook to keep reading more about the human body. Anyway, I credit diabetes for my interest in the life sciences. I even told myself I'll be an endocrinologist one day, but it's too early to even decide whether if medicine is right for me. I got into a pharmacy program though, but one thing that keeps me indecisive is the fact that I personally never really saw a pharmacist, even though I learned recently that pharmacists do diabetic management. I don't know, I guess the most prominent people I had to refer to was either my nurse or my endocrinologist, so I'm still debating what I want to do. But otherwise, I was wondering, out of curiosity if any of you have a medical condition that inspires your need to work in healthcare.
