Life Choices 4

I am going somewhere with all of this…stay with me here.  I had to make that choice and it wasn’t difficult at the time.  I was in love (still am!) and really wanted to have children (at the age of 21…got my first one at 27).  Marriage to my love and children and providing for a family and getting the right intellectual stimulation were all incredibly important to me.  I must confess one more thing.  I didn’t know if I was stupid or not.  Seriously.  I grew up in a family of 5 boys and I was the middle, overshadowed by the giant and sometimes intimidating intellects of my 2 older brothers.  They were smart for sure!  But I was so unsettled and unhappy and finally gave up in Grade 10, never to return to that high school (Don Mills Collegiate) with the only memory of school being unhappiness and crappy grades.  There you have it…docweissband leader is high school dropout physician!

I had to prove to myself that I wasn’t stupid.  Not that I didn’t want to go to medical school.  They definitely treat you nicer making a reservation at a restaurant under the name Doctor Weiss.  And I have to admit that medicine is a pretty fantastic career if you don’t mind bodily functions & fluids.  There have GOT to be easier ways to build confidence than going through medical school, but there you have it.
