Well Being

Five Years Ago I Thought I Was All Done With Vaginas. I Had Been Working Full-time As An OB/GYN, Was Expected To See 40 Patients A Day, And Was Really Miserable. So I Ended Up Leaving My Job — A Huge Leap Of Faith Because My Husband Was A Stay-at-home Dad And We Didn’t Have Any Savings. I Thought I Was Going To Be A Full-time Artist And Writer, But Realized Nine Months Later That You Can Quit Your Job, But You Can’t Quit Your Calling. I Realized That I Was Supposed To Be In Service To Women In Some Way.
