Wow you guys are troopers, your persistence is amazing!
Okay, here's my lil rant:
I'm just so tired and I keep wondering if it's okay to rest and forget about the premed grind FOR A BIT. I have a tendency to become really narrow focused when I really want to achieve something. It's great for productivity but it can be so mentally consuming. I wanted to become a doctor because I thought it would be such a meaningful career FOR ME and great FOR MY LIFE. No external expectations from anyone else but for myself only. But this whole thing really just consumed me, and sucked the life out of me recently. I just want to rest and self-care for a bit. This doesn't mean that I'm not cut out for medicine right? I'm not much of a type A person normally and I don't even recognize myself anymore :/
I swear the worst B word you can say is BURNOUT.
To anyone reading this, PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF THROUGHOUT THIS JOURNEY
Okay rant over I think.
