Hi people, I had a social degree before getting into medical school. For the past few months I never felt in place in medical school and didn't like my classmates or the doctors. I dreamt about being a doctor since I was little.. Helping others, being empathic and liked the autonomy of the profession. Old classmates and family made it to medical school and I just wanted to proof to myself and other that I could do it too. Since the beginning I tried my hardest to motivate myself to pick up a book to read about anatomy, histology and such. But didn't really like reading anything about the subjects in medical school. I don't like the prospect of giving my life for medicine and having no balance. I didn't like the constant rat race of being in competition with my classmates. But I liked the the prospect of helping others and gaining knowledge about health and helping someone further, especially being a crohn's patient myself and knowing how it feels to be a patient. Now I'm at a point I avoid going to class, don't like the books, patients make me a bit anxious, don't like my books and try to go around it. I have no appetite for a week, a racing heart and not feel like my happy self. At this point I just want out.. But feel like failing myself. Did anybody feel this way? Do I have good enough reasons to quit?
