I am a 29 year old single mom of a 4 year old girl. I currently work as a Senior Financial Analyst and I am looking for a career change to pursue my lifetime dream of becoming an Anesthesiologist. I just got accepted into a program to prepare me for Medical School. But I am scared. I don't know if this is a smart move, what sacrifices I will have to make that won't affect my daughter, and I don't know where to begin. I have to continue to work to afford Rent and Daycare but at my current job, this is impossible because of the long hours I have to work. I am thinking of finding a job that will allow me to pay necessary bills and be flexible enough for school but I am so lost and scared if this is going to be the right move!!!
