Hi guys, I know this is a really weird subject and I am probably the only person on here with this problem. However, I am unable to tie a proper knot out of anything (I wear flip flops all the time to avoid tying shoes...can't tie a bag together, etc.) It is truly aggravating. I don't have a learning disability or anything as I have seen a neurologist regarding this as well. My question is how much of an affect will this impediment have on my ability to perform in medical school. I would like to go into a primary care field but even that involves minor surgeries which require knots. Will the knot-tying process be easier in medical school when they teach it to you? Also, on a completely different side note, any recommendations as to comfy shoes during med school that half velcro? Thanks and I'm being completely serious with this thread---luckily I can hide behind a computer and ask for advice annoymously!
