I'm feeling torn.
I want to go to school and do what is required to become a doctor. I'm 31, 3 kids ranging in ages 9yrs old to 6months old...I'm a stay at home wife and mom and I do homeschooling and will do so at least until kids get to the 'high school' level..then we'll decide if they should go to a public school. Putting my relationship with God and my family/kids is key and I don't want to do anything that would jeopardize that.
Well, I know I will probably need to start from 'scratch' when it comes to pursuing my education and medical career but I'm trying to figure if it's 'worth it' or not! I have old school debt from when I went to college before...hubby has debt...he's the only one working and I would feel awful for putting yet another debt on his shoulders...so what do you ladies suggest? What would you do if you were in my shoes?
Side Note: hubby is very supportive of me pursuing my dreams...he knows that I want to become a doctor with hopes of returning to the days of 'house calls', he also knows I want to be a doctor that will use the barter system, and he knows that I won't plan to make a lot of money...yet, he's still okay with it...
I have heard how much time it takes to become a doctor. It is very time consuming. I guess anything is possible. But all that stuff you refuse to give up in your life now might have to taake a back burner to becoming a doctor.

Go for it!!! I am going tomorrow and talk with a councilor about my options. I want to be a nurse. I am 32 with two girls who are 9 and 10. The time is now. Just do it.
