Default I Quit Trying to be a Scientist

I am sorry, but I am not someone great like Dr.Stephen Hawking. I cannot overcome my disability. Let alone help others overcome theirs. I can't do it. I am a failure and I always will be one. Sorry, everyone.

Default Re: I Quit Trying to be a Scientist

I have gotten two degrees and worked in the psych field for 25 years trying to overcome my Bipolar condition. Instead I am now 100% disabled by the military and social security. But I helped 1000s along the way so at least we try itís better than giving up.

Don't give up on your dreams. Even if you can't achieve them now does not mean you never will.

I'm so sorry you're hurting so much, TheLonelyChemist Please don't give up. I don't think you need to give up your dreams. Perhaps you're judging yourself by standards that are a bit too high? I'm not saying that you can't reach out those standards. But perhaps you should take it one step at the time. Otherwise it will all just be too overwhelming for you. I'm sure you'll be able to achieve great things. Please don't give up. Remember that we're here for you if you need it. Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you. I'm so sorry you have to deal with all of this

Donít give up! You are so far from a failure! I was just thinking the other day how much moxie you have. If anyone can make it....you can. I value your friendship very much.

Thank you for your input. I am sorry you had to go through that... I know, how hard it is, even to live with MI and even worse when no one supports you.

I am a very calculating person... but as my professors told me, "Adapt, like Carbon atoms"

I'll try Sisabel. Without research on medicine, I don't think I'll be alive or have a career that I am passionate about anyway.
