After reading over 200 articles on my topic, I'm a walking library on physician-patient relationships - but I am terrified to put my thoughts to paper.
Because I failed before. I received an F on a paper I did in my first year of the program during one particularly bad struggle with brain fog.
It was humiliating. I started to doubt that I belonged in the program. And for some reason it is still haunting me.
- I graduated with distinction in my undergrad program
- Received A's in all but one course (A-) in my masters
- Managed dozens of staff, millions of dollars, and partnered on several CIHR grants.
- was accepted into two PhD programs
Why am I letting one failure in an otherwise excellent career hold me back?
