Clinicals start in two weeks, and I've just found out that I'm missing some vaccine titers and a TB test. And I have to get it all done in the next two weeks, otherwise my clinicals will be delayed and I'll probably have to take Fundamentals over, screwing up my schedule. And with my more spartan medical insurance it'll cost hundreds. :angryfire
Hopefully, I'll be able to call my MD tomorrow morning and demand an appointment to take care of these things that day, STAT. If not, I can forget about starting clinicals until the spring
Hopefully, it won't get any worse than that...but I could see something like this screwing up my entire program. And if I have to drop out, I still have to pay back the loans for this quarter and
find another job before my funds run out...but that's an absolute worst case scenario and almost certainly won't happen.
Thanks for listening to my rant. It bugs me most that this happened right when I was feeling that I was really ahead of the game and able to handle everything. Now I have to worry about continuing with the program.
I'm calmer now, and, surprisingly, still studying and getting ready for my next class. Still very sad
, it hurts when something like this comes up to ruin a good week. However, I know from what I've read here that many of you have been in worse situations, and it gives me hope that I can manage mine just fine.
