Still on leave

Still on leave from everything . . .

The clock is ticking in terms of my seat at school. At this point it seems unlikely that I will reclaim it. There are many others more worthy vying for it. I don't think this means I will never practice medicine, though it probably does mean that I will not practice it as an MD. I'm almost done grieving that.

There is a possibility of my considering fields that my ego didn't allow me to before. This is a long term plan (5 years). For now I am trying to find a way to be home as much as possible. This may mean returning to my old corporate job for a while. *sigh*

Even the musical side of me has been sluggish to return. Thankfully, the woodwind quintet is going strong, even with the weakest link (me). We are meeting again tomorrow, three weeks since our last rehearsal. How many times did I practice in between? Twice. This is pitiful. At least the baby no longer cries when I play the oboe. I need to just push myself to do it every day, even if just for 10-15 minutes. I keep saying that, but the gears are still not back in place. Soon. Soon.

I don't believe for a second that there are many "more worthy" for that seat than you. Not for a second. I've seen enough med students to know that for SURE.

You have the brains AND the beauty of spirit to be the kind of doctor this world really needs, but if it's not your heart's calling, I truly hope you will find the path that's right for you and your family and that puts all your amazing talent to great use.

You're 100% supported over here, whatever you decide.
