I hate chem lab. I hate it. I was originally going to be a Dietitian but I turned to Pharmacy and to be honest it's mainly because I need a higher paying career if I want to support my family. I have kids with disabilities and 3 kids 6 and under right now. I hate chem lab. I haven't had it in 10 years and the person running it doesn't want to help at all. She expects me to understand the things in our workbook when I have not been taught it - ever. Not in high school, not in college. There are words I have never heard and I am normally an A student but I am behind and I feel so overwhelmed. I had an A in Chem 101 last year and I am still doing well in 122 (the second course) as far as the lecture part goes and the math portion in that part of class. I just hate the lab portion so much and the experiments...or mainly lab reports (different instructor by the way). Will I need to do a LOT of that as a pharmacist? Will there be so much math that I need to whip out a calculator? Will I need to actually *make* drugs? I really would prefer to work in a retail setting, by the way. Tell me what I'd be in for. Thanks!
