Wrong Profession?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a doctor. I think every little kid went through this phase. I still remember the doctor's kit I had, which I would use at every opportunity. Unfortunately, my first taste of biology class in high school turned me off forever. I couldn't even touch the frog, much less dissect it!

So anyway, I paid another visit to my doctor today. It was the last before the "big day." I had to talk to the people at the health insurance office to make sure that they will cover the procedure, and estimate how much I will have to pay in excess. In the process, I found out just how much the different doctors get paid. I cannot believe how much they charge for a 5-minute (or even less) visit!

I cannot help but wonder if the other people in the medical profession earn as much. If you go to medical assisting school, would you earn a decent amount?

Maybe I should have stuck it out. Maybe I should have at least given my childhood dream a shot. Heck, I stayed in college long enough for me to have gone to medical school anyway! (Yeah, I had too much fun and stayed longer than most any other person I know.)

Then again, looking back and looking to the future, I know that I am doing what I am meant to be doing. And, that is what matters in the end, right?
