Hello everyone! I am currently taking prereqs and doing fine. :D I have 2 children, ages 8 and 4. They are used to Mommy doing homework, and we have a pretty good routine down. I will hopefully be starting Med school in 2 more years. I have been reading posts for awhile, and I hear about moms making it through Med school with live-in help. (Husbands, Mothers, Nannys, etc) I was wondering if anyone out there has attempted/made it through Med school alone? I have a wonderful church family that babysits when I work 16hr shifts on the weekends. They will help during rotations, etc. The girls go to daycare during the week while I am at school. I believe I have the ability to make it work from this side of the grass... Some people look at me like I am crazy though! I have made it this far, I don't want to give up on the DREAM until I try. :crossfingers:

Shout outs to all of the single parents out there!!! :yes: :yikes:
I just told my mom, today, that my whole life right now is Kids, books and bills.
Keep the faith, my friend, and never give up on the dream that you have. A great friend of mine once told me that the most powerful force in the universe is the force of becoming. When you are inspired to become, you can do anything and nothing will be denied you.
Hollar at me if you need to.

Wishing you well,
Chandra :grouphug:

UGH!! This semester has been ridiculous! I noticed this post I had done in September (the beginning of the semester)and I was so positive... and now at the end... :( I had to drop Chemistry, I didn't want to sacrifice my GPA. I am missing school right now because my girls are sick!! Don't get me wrong, I am still plugging along. I am encouraged that there are at least two other moms in the world doing it alone :wave: . I can't stand ex's... Why on earth would anyone want to assist the mother of their children to succeed and make a better life for the children?? I am unusually crabby today. Good luck to you as well. Thanks for responding!!
