how many of you dreamed of becoming a doctor?

I have always wanted to work in the medical field.. I love taking care of sick relative.. I dont like that they are sick but I like making them feel better.. I just got diagnosed with a mental illness not long ago, and I have had a number of people in my life with addiction problems and so Ive decieded that Im going to go to school to become a psychiatrist. I know it will take alot of school (12 years). But I really want to do this, Ive already been in school for two years and I loved anatomy! Im taking off this semistar to work but Im going back in the summer to get started again! I am praying that I get into university of Texas! My boyfriends stepdad used to coach there and maybe I can get him to write me a letter of reccomendation.. =)

  • Hmm well when I was 10 I decided I wanted to be a brain surgeon (no idea why). So for my birthday someone bought me a "Brain Surgery for Beginners (aka KIDS)" I took one look at the scalpel and blood and decided I wanted to be an actress lol. I second the Mehki Phifer thing though!

    BTW 15 years later I am neither a brain surgeon or an actress :)

  • I wanted to be an ear doctor. Really. I love to look in people's ears. Never happened. But I still look in people's ears if they let me.

  • Nope - even when I was young I knew that was way too much school for me! I got my BA in History with my 9-12 teaching cert

  • I still want to be a doctor. I will have to settle for Physical Therapist or Physician's Assistant though. Med school is hard to do when you don't stay in one place more than 3 yrs. Hubby is an officer in the military. Officers move a lot more often than even enlisted do!
