Hey everyone, I'm currently a sophomore and I just finished an AWFUL, AWFUL fall semester. Anyway, I started off taking five classes: a business management class that everyone gets an A in, undergraduate research, pharmacology, organic chemistry II, and physics I. I'm suffering from moderate depression so it's been extremely difficult for me to find motivation to do anything. The depression thing was always kind of there, but it never got bad up to the point where I stopped doing homework for like two weeks. It was really bad...anyway, I ended up dropping physics about two weeks into the semester for the sake of my sanity and so I can focus more on organic chemistry and pharmacology. Now, I don't HATE organic chemistry and I actually really like it...but I wasn't consistent. The second part of organic chemistry is known to be one of the hardest, if not THE hardest class, in my university. Anyway, I wasn't consistent with studying and did extremely poorly on all my exams. I barely did anything...I don't know why and I know it's my fault and I'm getting help (saw a therapist four times and will see a psychiatrist as soon as possible). I ended up failing the class, but fortunately, anything below a C does not show up on our external transcript. I have no C's so far, but I really want to major in chemistry. I'm legitimately interested in the subject and I feel like if I manage my depression effectively, I can do well in the future. I have to retake organic chemistry II next fall and I know this time around I'll do much better or at least I expect to. I planned out my schedule for the next two years and a half and I can still graduate with a chemistry degree on time even if I retake it next fall. Am I being realistic? Or should I take this failure in orgo II as a sign that I shouldn't go near chemistry ever again because I'm simply too stupid? The reason why I want to do chemistry is because I'd like to work for a pharmaceutical company or maybe even get a PhD in medicinal chemistry if I don't get into medical school or whatever. Any advice or comments are appreciated. Thanks.
