Today, I finally admitted something incredibly difficult to myself: Medical School is not for me. I am currently a first year Pre-Med Biology student. I volunteer in a Children's Hospital because I planned to become a Pediatrician. I applied to be a Medical Scribe to get further clinical experience. I've started looking for research opportunities. This is what I've always wanted to do. However, I found myself having constant panic attacks and being prescribed antidepressants. I am unhappy. I do amazing in my biology courses, but I barely pass math and chemistry. I've been taking my stress out on those around me, and I have not been myself. Physicians that I speak to tell tales of being in school for 15 years, and I can't imagine a future for myself in their shoes. If I struggle now, I will not succeed in medical school. I study hard and I work hard, but not enough. Not enough to survive medical school. I had an honest conversation with myself today and came to the conclusion that I choose my own happiness. The reason why I decided to pursue a career in the medical field to begin with was because I wish to combine my passion for biological sciences and the want to help and improve lives. I can do that in other ways besides being a doctor. At last, I ask for your opinion: what would you do if you were me? I am incredibly lost, because I spent my whole life focusing on one option. I am currently thinking about changing my major to Nursing. Life is very strange at the moment.
