I ran to my father dangling my arm yelling “DAD I BROKE MY ARM!” He didn’t believe me at first, but once he saw my arm he knew it was true. Luckily, a family friend –who was a cardiologist- was there and helped us to the emergency room 15 minutes away. I was nine years old when this occurred and it significantly influenced my decision of pursuing medicine. But I didn’t have time to dwell on the minutia, because the majority of my adolescence was spent working at my parents’ restaurant after school. I would bus tables, take to-go orders, roll silverware in napkins, and drop off catering orders near and far.

Even fast-food restaurants have higher meat standards than the National School Lunch Program ((NSLP)USDA provides the meat for the NSLP).

“We all know why we are here”. This new “therapist” was my last resort. I wasn’t proud to admit it. Who would be? Some things are easier to admit than others, and admitting that my stubborn self was wrong in an argument was far easier than admitting that I needed help.
Taking Prozac was temporarily effective, while on it; I could feel my thoughts changing, like literally feeling my thoughts change from morbidity to bliss was unsettling to me. It is a frightening experience, not knowing if thoughts are really yours or if they are simply produced by medication. When I stopped taking Prozac, I did not know how long it would take for it all to be out of my system. During this time I did not socialize with anyone, in fear that the words spoken or actions taken were not fully my own yet. This quotation from Ralph Ellison’s novel, Invisible Man, best illustrates my rationale after ending the use of Prozac: “When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” I had to find myself again, even though ‘myself’ included dysthymia and being misunderstood, but I was okay with that as long as I could think for

He told me about his spinal tumors and how he had spent the last 22 years of his life in and out of the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.
My head pounded from the dehydration and my Abdominals and Throat hurt from, well you know. I remember lying in my bed, with a cramp in my side thinking what I would give to be healthy again. The first thing on the list was to give up eating wet burritos at a sketchy mexican restaurant. The next was to clean my room, because I had been staring at a dangling cobweb on my ceiling fan for about an hour. Lastly I told myself that I would remember what I felt like, and not take being healthy for granted.
I sat down and The judge yelled at me to stand back up. He told me that he should send me right back to Germany and I would have to stay there without second chances. I started bursting in to tears hoping he would feel a little sympathy and have mercy for me. He took a deep breath and sighed and said,”you can finish registration but, if you ever threaten someone like that again I 'll put you under the jail.
