It's ironic to say at least. I want to help everyone yet nobody is able to help me.



Well I am still going to try to be a surgeon, if it doesn't work out (if I don't get accepted in med school firstly) I will try to be a medical scientist, and if even that doesn't work out I doubt I will live. Because it's medicine that makes my heart pound. I may not be the brightest student in the world but I know I am brilliant. In high school teachers called me a "90+ % student" I managed to get 84% in science the year I graduated science.


But then psychosis hit me. I hit back. That's why I have passed my classes 'till now. Yes I did require great assistance, but I didn't do any bizarre thing despite my literal bizarre delusions. It's very hard for me to maintain my sanity in social situations.



I do hope I get to be a surgeon despite my nerve damage. I just hope. It doesn't make much sense when I talk that's why a clinical specialty is out of question for me. And I want to impact people's lives directly, not by just research, that's why I am considering going to med school in the first place.

Awesome Gus! I wish I could save that to my page.

I still wonder why the universe won't show itself to everyone.

It's ironic, truly ironic, universe tells us that those who want to do good shouldn't be allowed to do so. Because, well, luck.

Another way we can think of the universe is as a virtual reality where ever belief we hold manifests itself. So we can only see a reflection of our own consciousness. Then what we call the universe out there is really a projection of ourselves. What we see changes as we change our beliefs and how we view others.

An example is when we might wear tinted glasses. Everything we see is colored by the glasses. That is how I think our beliefs color the world we see. So the universe does not change, but our perception of it.

Why does there even have to be a purpose ? Just because we humans think there should be ? The universe is everything and nothing at the same time.
Maybe someday in the far distant future will we be able to understand what’s really happening here. Evolution is a slow process. In the end everything , that we know of , will cease to exist.

Yes, you're probably right... How do we cope with this?

You can be a surgeon or scientist LonelyChemist. Whether you will be permitted entry into university as it stands right now is a hurdle you can get past. I wanted to study architecture, but didn't have the entry requirements. So I spent several years in self study...gathering the obligatory prerequisites needed. It is doable, with tenacity of purpose and hard work...just find a way.

I wish you all the best in your endeavours.
