    Good on you though! That's awesome. I have always kinda envied Paramedics too. Haha...for want of a better word!
    My kids are 6, 4, 3 and 2. And I'm pregnant haha so I'm not sure how I will go with the study, so I have opted for the Diploma first as it's more self paced and will do the bachelors after that once I get a better grasp on home/study balance.
    Doing this training has super motivated me though. I'm at the point where I can't picture NOT doing it.

    I would love to study medicine. Did GAMSAT when DS was younger & did get accepted into postgrad medicine, but then became a single mum which meant doing the training etc was never going to work. If I had followed that road, I would now like to specialise in psychiatry.

    Instead I have settled for studying psychology & have nearly finished my undergrad degree, though for now have deferred. Ideally I would like to be a registered psychologist and work in the public system and public policy in particular, as well as in psychological research. While I am studying towards this, at the end of the day unless somehow my mental health improves substantially (which I can't see happening to the degree I need it to), it is not something that will come to reality.

And while it's not the doctor career I envisioned, this seems to be working out a whole lot better. I think this job suits me much more than the doctor would have anyway. Still get to deal with trauma cases. Still get to save lives and do all that stuff. But not stuck in a hospital. I get to be outside, on the road which I like. I'm doing volunteer ambulance officer training at the moment. Finishing it off this week, so I've been playing with some pretty neato stuff.

    Point is, maybe there is something else in the medical field you can look into?
    How do you go about doing that volunteer ambulance training? I would love to do that!!

    I do it because I live in a remote area. We don't have actual paramedics here, only volunteer. But if you join SES, firies, etc any of those other volunteer organisations, they often offer CFR (community first responder) courses and you do that as part of your role. It doesn't involve quite as much as what my role does but they still do a bit. I would ask around what's in your area.

    Official puppy cuddler, or just something where I can be around animals all day every day.
    I have lots of allergies though, and also need to pay bills so that's not happening any time soon.

    This kind of puppy would suit you. On allergenic poodle/Bichon as they have wool not fur.

    I'm not sure how severe your allergies are but u should study dog training and help train autism dogs they are always looking for people!

    They're not real bad and I allready have puppies, it's more other animals like rodents, so I couldn't work in a shelter or vets office. I will definitely look into the dog trainer stuff though, sounds interesting
