    hey friends,
    It's been a long time since I signed on..... mainly because my pursuit of med school has been put on hold.....

    After Sept. 11th I seemed to loose steam in my desire to study (my husband was on his way to the Pentagon when it was hit...)... Then we had 2 deaths in our family between Nov and Dec..... it made me really think about my priorities.........

    I have decided that for me, putting my husband first and continuing in my current career as a medical speech pathologist is the best thing for me right now......

    I just wanted to sign back on and let you know that the tremendous support and advice that you guys offered was appreciated more than you'll ever know!

    It's been great supporting and interacting with you guys! and I'm so proud and excited for all of you who have received the good news! :D

    For those of you who are just starting or those trying again, I sincerely wish you the best of luck! Hang in there and use this network to help you stay focused!

    I will check in every once in a while.....just in case anyone has any questions I might be able to answer from my medical experience! :)
    Luckily, I have a great career already and the docs I work with, treat me like a peer....... so
    I've got it pretty good right now....and I'm thankful!

    Well, I'll quit rambling....
    Thanks again SDN!! You are great friends!

    Take care,
    L :)

    Nice to hear from you! I'm sorry to hear about the rough time you've been having. You sound like you've got a handle on it, though. That's wonderful. Take care and don't be a stranger!!

    hi ATC2MD,
    thanks for replying! ya, things were really rough last semester!

    But, life is good right now and I feel very content with my "hold" on med school...

    I haven't given up, but I have had a couple of new opportunities pass my way....
    For example, one of the GI docs that I work with, one who wrote one of my letters of recommendation, asked me if I would be interested in starting a "swallowing center" with him...... I do lot's of radiology studies and endoscopies right now for patient's c/ dysphagia (swallowing disorders....)
    so anyway, that might be a great move for me...... we'll see....
    Anyway, hope you're doing well!
    Good luck with your MD pursuit! :)

    Glad to have you back! Sorry about everything... I know what you mean, I was to go to NYC a few weeks after 9-11 for an interview... put that on hold for a couple months. I know that doesn't compare to what you've been through, but after 9-11, I was profoudly shaken. But the only way we can fight terrorism is to not let terrorism stop us from living our lives. Anyway, hope you consider re-applying next year. peace
