So Sparkfriends, I haven't posted in a while. And here's why.
During my time in school, I was hit by a car. I'm fine! I was banged up a bit then though. This caused me to miss an exam. And then my school decided that because I didn't take the medical leave assigned to me (I wanted to continue and even kept turning up to class) - I was let go.
This has been devastating. To have worked so hard and come so far, only to let an administrative choice derail my medical career.
I don't know what to say, really.
I'm at home now, and having spent 2 years in med school, I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. I'd have to retake an MCAT and start fresh. Or perhaps pursue a career in psychology instead, I'm not really sure.
I spent a long time, longer than I'd like to admit, in the throes of feeling sorry for myself. Not wanting to get out of bed. Not wanting to go to campus or see friends.
It's only now that I'm back at home and taking control of my health that I'm starting to feel better about both myself and the future.
I think that's the lesson to be learned: no matter how well you set yourself up, sometimes things beyond your control can sweep the rug out right from underneath you. So it's best to always have a positive attitude, keep your head up, and keep going.
So here I am, back for more, because I'm going to keep going. :)
