Stressful: You're in a very stressful situation. Perhaps you're having some difficulties in med school. Everyone has difficulties from time to time. It may be time to think about a less stressful occupation. This does not mean you're a failure. It may, however, indicate that you might be happier doing research or being an eye doctor, etc. It appears you are depressed. Recommend professional guidance.
