I think one of the things that keeps me going is knowing that when I’m 18 I plan to leave and not come back. Some people totally support me and believe in me, but others think it’s ridiculous. I think I just realized how little I care what they think because I won’t have to even talk to them then if I don’t want to. Another thing I just realized is that I want to be a part of the doctors without borders but not the field I’ve always thought, I wanna be a physiatrist so I can help others. I may be mental myself but I want to help others go through their troubles so they don’t have to do it alone like I do.

I guess looking towards my future is a good step towards not giving up totally.
