Veronika Thanks for visiting! After I feliad to get accepted to the mental health programs, I decided it's not really what would be best for me anyway. Clinical medicine always stressed me out, and if I have to hide my past to get in, it just is not worth it to me. I'm more interested in figuring out a way to support myself as a writer, as hard as that can be. The blog is a way to keep writing while I sort things out. At the moment, writing about health / biology / psychiatry looks like a promising direction. I'd love to write a memoir or spiritual book, but the competition is more fierce, and my past education less relevant. In any event, I think the programs did me a favor by rejecting me. I doubt it would make me happy to shoulder responsibility for clients. I'd rather have less to worry about, not more. But I appreciate your confidence in me. Will
