I've been keeping a secret. For a very long time. Well, not a secret exactly. About a year ago I wrote a post in the form of a letter to my surgeon. In it I mentioned that I have always wanted to be a doctor, but I felt like my injury was holding me back.
I applied to medical school today. It's a long process with a lot of steps, but I made the leap today.
The silver lining of being this injured for this long is that it has removed any doubt that a career as a physician is right for me.
Wish me luck!
