I'm being given the same STUPID advice!!!!!!
I'm 52; I had a thriving career in Marketing Communications b/f I stopped working to raise my son. Since it's tough to start a career again @ my age, my (now-ex!) boyfriend told me: "get some training in assisting a surgeon w/ instruments b/c my friend did that"- I lost it on him- I was furious that he didn't know me well enough to suggest that option!!!!!!!!!!!!! If EVER there was someone who should NOT go into medicine, it's me! I HATE doctors & their superior attitudes, plus, I'm not about to wear scrubs & give people shots & baths, clean up excrement, etc. Thank God for those who can do this, but it AIN'T ME!!!
I'm a creative person, and, oh boy, the one field that squelchs "out of the box" thinking is medicine!
