Just wanted to hop on and have a chat with you guys. It’s been a while.
I got accepted into the radiology tech clinical program- it still hasn’t set in yet. Allied health programs are very competitive as I’m sure some of you already know. 63 applied for a spot this year and the only took 26, I being one of the 26. I busted my ass for 3 years for this. I worked so hard, I barley slept or had any social life for that matter. I was determined to accomplish this and I did. I did it. I now will graduate in 2020 and take my boards to be a Registered Radiologic Technologist RT(R).
Radiology is so much more than taking pictures. You have to have a passion for it, it has to be a fire deep in your soul if you want to accomplish a career. Especially in the medical field because it is HARD! If you don’t really want it I promise you will not make it.
But my point of this post was to share with you ladies that I have a chronic illness.. I have Endometriosis (OBVIOUSLY) and I accomplished something.. I am one step closer to securing a career in something I love. Yes, I hurt. But I have become numb.. I wait till I get home and curl up in a ball with my hot water bottle at the end of the day.
I think no matter how you accomplish something as long as you’ve done it it doesn’t matter. I want to inspire other ladies that feel like giving up or feel like they can’t go through school because of Endometriosis. YOU CAN. You are a lot stronger than you think, trust me I’ve learned that. And how awesome is it to be able to say you kicked ass and accomplish your goals all while having a painful illness!!!!! A DAMN ROCKSTAR!
I know it’s hard, I’ve wanted to give up and quit so many times. But I did it.. I made it this far and from here on out it’s learning skills towards my passion and I am beyond thrilled and I am so proud of myself. This feeling is like no other. I did this all by myself. Endo can’t stop me and it doesn’t have to stop you either.
