All my life I was focused on getting into vet school. Taking extra classes for college credit in high school, applying for every scholarship, working through high school and undergrad at vet clinics as volunteer to get experience, and in retail to be able to pay for school. All this time I put off relationships for vet school and the veterinary profession. I thought I had to sacrifice friendships and romantic relationships to be a good vet. Now I am alone, drowning in debt and wondering if I will ever be a good vet, and for once an awhile, I just wish that I could come home to a husband, children, instead of my cats and dog.
