Hey everyone, I feel as though I'm starting to have some regrets for the wrong reasons. A little background first: I was a biomedical science major because I loved the material and it made sense to me. My plan was always to go to PT school, and that gave me the motivation to make straight A's throughout college. I am not trying to brag by any means, I am saying this because the better I did in school, the more people would start to question me. Why PT school? Why not be a REAL doctor? MONEY PRESTIGE MONEY PRESTIGE!!! Now, I won't say that I never had second thoughts, but I was always strong in knowing that I was doing what I loved, not chasing money. Recently, as I am accruing debt and reading forum after forum about the poor PT salary, those people are starting to get to me. I love PT, I really do. But I'm just starting to wonder if I should've looked harder into different field of med school to see if there was something I loved there too. Idk, maybe I'm just looking for some encouraging words. What I love about PT is time with patients. I REALLY want to make a difference. I've also started to wonder if maybe i could've made more of a difference as a physician as well. I've spent a lot of time thinking about this lately, and just writing it even feels somewhat cathartic. I am someone who tends to care entirely too much what others think of me, and I think that is a large part of what has me questioning myself. I'm just sick of the "you didn't want to do med school?" discussion. Anyways, thanks for reading. I'm realizing now that there isn't particularly a question here, so do with that what you will. Have a fantastic day everyone.
