I'll make this as short as possible.
Basically, I don't love what I do. (med school). I have a test coming up and need to decide if I really want to continue with this.

Here are my options
A. suck it up, finish med school (i'm almost done). continue to be miserable and procrastinate on bhm, BUT have a stable enough career to support myself. i've put 6.5 years of my life into this road and loads of money. I wanted to be a psychiatrist but I know for the most part their focus is giving you meds and they don't have time for therapy.

B. Toss my degree in biology, go back and take the psychology courses I wish I had taken in undergrad. get a psy.d,  phd, or masters in psychology and focus on clinical psychology. that's where my heart is

c. use the degree i have to just get a damn job

what would you do?

Suck it up and stay. I know the feeling. I was pre-med in undergrad. I got into med school in the Caribbean (yeah, yeah, I know, my grades weren't the best). Those classes suck, but having an MD doesn't mean you have to be a doctor. It just gives you more options. Don't quit now. You're almost there.

But when you say miserable if its seriously affecting your health then you may need to think about it.

finish med school. 
afterwards, do what you love. 
Youve invested too much time and money to turn back now. 

If you had just started id say to quit.. but youre almost done.

I did B. It isn't a bad option. Take the degree you have, and go for what you want. I took my science degree, took the LSAT, and applied to law school. My plan was to take the patent bar and become a patent attorney, but after taking patent law, I decided that I didn't patents and IP that either. Why must our hearts be so fickle? Cry

i really hope i dont feel like you... 
i wanna be a psychiatrist too. But i wanna do therapy not just talk to them for 15 minutes then give meds.. psychology is my first love. But i do like biology and everything about the human body too... and of course i wanna make more money.

im getting my BA in psych then applying to med school. 
i wish you could have done it like this too..
