  • THIS IS IT. I'm going into medicine.

    Hey y'all...
    I don't know what forum to put this in so I'm throwing it out here.
    Through a series of strange, intense experiences that I won't go into, it has suddenly been made clear to me that I need and want to be a doctor. I didn't think I was the type of person who believed in "callings" , though I am a devout Christian; I was quite content with my field of study, I thought. The idea of medicine was vaguely in my mind for the past few months. But about 48 hours ago it all changed, crystallized into something absolutely real.
    This will require an extra year of college to finish pre-requisites, and a decade of intense training...I am totally aware of that. But I have never felt this RIGHT and at peace with what I am doing, not in my entire life. On the other hand, I am so excited I can barely eat or sleep (ironic, no?). I just wanted to share this tremendous joy and exciting shift in my life, because I think all the hard thought and effort of changing my ideas about food and well-being has both shaped this calling and will continue to. So THANK YOU because I think you changed my life.

    You too!


    Only, you know... I'm a satanist, so I'm just going into medicine to make money and ruin people's lives.

          Way to go! This sort of thing happened to me as well, I'm in school and I just changed my major from linguistics to microbiology and bio chemistry. I want to contribute to the body of research in human metabolism. Keep fighting the good fight milly!

            As a satanist I thought your primary goal would be to make money, and if people's lives are ruined in the process, it would be of no concern to you. Do I detect some bitterness? Maybe you need to have a heart-to-heart with Lucifer.
            You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

              Congrats!! When you start your practice can you be near me so I have a primal doc to go see?

              Darth is collecting souls, but first gets all their money and makes them miserable. Its a win-win.
