Run.

Do you have talents outside medicine?

Do you have talents inside medicine but feel like you'd be happy as a PA, nurse, chiropractor, or radiology tech?

Do that.

I agree with Spice Island Queen. While I don't know exactly what you're going through I have known you since we were 10 years old. I know how capable you are of doing things and I also know how bad you've wanted this. You wouldn't have made it this far if you didn't deserve to be there!! I love you! Keep fighting, it will all work out!!

Maybe it is just a test to make sure you really, really want it! Hang tight, Ish.

Ishie-
You are so worth it. Lori is right - it is a test to make sure you really want it. The fact that you are so honest about your experiences makes you even more of a hero whether you want to be or not. You don't even realize how many people you are helping just by being you. A year down the road, you will look back on this experience with a smile on your face. Just hang in there-

Thank you guys; I'm trying to take it now with a smile on my face, like one of my colleagues suggested, but MAN, it's hard.
