Since I was 5 years old I wanted to be a doctor. Now as I struggle through pre-med, doing worse and worse every semester, the goal seems harder and harder. When I think about not becoming a doctor, I want to puke. This has been the main purpose of my life from a very young age. I have seen it as my calling. I can't push it aside. I can't look at doctors for the rest of my life knowing that they are smarter than me, more capable than me. I think if I don't become a doctor, and I go into some useless profession, I will be a useless shrub the world could easily do without. I will be forgotten within 2-3 generations and that will be that. Many people don't mind this, but I can't live with that thought!
