I have a bad temper problem and I havn't yet learned to control it. For instance, I don't like taking any sh-t from anyone. My whole family is aggresive and I think that has something to do with it. If you met me you would never guess that I am like this, partly because I am good at showing a sweet face to the public. My problem has gotten worse ever since I met my boyfriend who is quite possesive of me. He is also a sexist which drives me crazy, otherwise he is perfect. I feel like the incredible hulk coming out of my skin everytime I get aggitated. For instance, today I was studying for my MCAT all day at the library and I decided to check-out some reading material. I didn't have my library card with me so I went to the check-outs and asked if I could use my driver's licence instead. The lady said it would be fine and as soon as I came back with my books another lady took me and said with a bitchy tone "you need to have your library card, make sure to bring your card next time". I turned to her and said " I think my driver's is enough, and it is my business if I want to bring my lib card or not". I think other women pick on my because I am attractive and look smart, this is also why I don't have any close girl-friends. So now my question, if I am not able to deal with my problem, how is this going to affect my career as a doctor? I have heard that senior docs can pick on you and treat you poorly, I am sure I would snap back at them. So should I forget medicine? Now another problem, I don't think I am very smart, I mean my grades are alright but I forget things quite fast and sometimes I can't remember names of familiar people. Is this another reason why I shouldn't pursue a career in medicine? What if I forget the name of a vital organ? Please don't send any negative remarks anyone, I already have low self esteem as it is.
