Describe your last attempt to learn something that did not come easily to you.
When I was forced to leave my job due to health problems, I searched for jobs that I could do from home. I settled on Medical Transcription. I knew how to type, how to use most Windows software, and had a start on medical terms from my years working as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
The first part of the course was fairly easy; learning medical terms, formats, and standards. The second part of the course was when I got in trouble: Transcription. The lessons started slow so that one could get the hang of it, but once transcribing from actual physicians began, I fell apart.
I could not keep up. I could not understand their words. I was totally lost. This was a first for me; not being able to accomplish something I had set for myself. It was extremely hard to admit failure, but fail I did. I quickly saw that I was not going to make money from this. I dropped out.
It stung. It still stings, but I have moved forward staying close to the wall of what I know.
