@XFiles if i may as, how old were you when you went back to school for medicine?

I’ve thought about doing that so many times. but part of me feels like it’s too late. current excuses floating around:

– all the schooling and residency etc. etc. would take forever to complete.

– i’m afraid i’d never get accepted or that i’d flunk out

– the thought of spending another 6 or so years in school (i haven’t even finished my MA yet)

– what if i spend all that time going back to school and decide that i don’t like it or want to do something else?

but I’ve always had a pull to work in health care…medicine or psychiatry or psychology or social work (not paramedic because i’m a horrendous driver!) i’m usually weirdly calm in a crisis too, so i thought it would be a good fit. plus, i like the idea of seeing a new patient/case every 20 minutes or so…would keep the day moving. right now i work 9-5 in a cubicle and want to stab my eyes out with a pen.

anyway, i would really love to hear more about you doing that, your thoughts on going back to school, etc.
