I'm feeling completely dejected and as if there is little to no hope for me to continue on to be a doctor. I've posted before, but a brief recap of my history: I moved out of my parents house and on my own when I was 16. I dropped out of high school and got my GED to work more hours to afford my apartment. I made two attempts at community college during that time and withdrew from each semester (but didn't do it properly the first time and I have an F, possibly two. I'm requesting my transcripts to find out). Now I'm married and have an infant. I'm now in community college and just finished my first year. I have a 3.5 GPA (got all A's and one C in precalculus the first semester) and am part of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor society, but I think I'm going to lose that because I got a C in Calculus (after holding a strong B the entire semester. I did HORRIBLE on the final). And I'm probably going to get a B in Chemistry. I take the final tonight, so I guess there's still hope for it to go up. Anyway, without an A in Chemistry, my GPA will drop to either a 3.3 or 3.4, not including the F's from my mess up semesters. I'm looking for volunteer positions for the summer, but I'm just not feeling confident. I just feel like I have so many things counting against me and I'm not sure how to recover. Any tips? If you can see past the self pity I just oozed all over the place, I would find any advice or encouragement very helpful.
