Knowing that it was now or never, I took all of the remaining money I had from student loans at UW, and left for Princeton. I had only planned on visiting the school during spring break and had these classes in mind to sit on for the first week:

Medical science failed my family. My mother, grandmother, sister and uncle all suffering from type-2 diabetes and my grandfather dying by its hand.
Medical science failed my advisor Steve Mitchell, who died of cancer my second year of graduate school.
Diagnostic psychiatry failed me, while in graduate school I was misdiagnosed as ADHD, OCD, bipolar, and finally Asperger’s Syndrome, none of which fit. Why?
