I had two bad experiences from calling a helpline and never did it again. The first one advised me to take up ballroom dancing and the second told me about her own problems while I provided a listening ear.

Would an academic career in vet med be right for me given the circumstances?
• I am a young woman with a veterinary medical degree from Myanmar. However, given the political situation in Burma and given my own role in it, I cannot document my degree. In fact, Burma won't allow me to document anything. I am not originally from Burma though. • My high school was in London, Ontario and I can document my high school for sure. I lived in the US most of my life until I met a dashing guy from Burma. I moved with him to London first and then to Burma after high school and eventually joined the vet school in Burma. My dashing hero was killed by Burma which is when I became an activist until I was banned from that country. • I am familiar with advanced vet surgery and have significant experience at a public zoo in Burma. I have operated on everything from lions, one giraffe, two tigers, elephants, ostriches, cows, bears, many dogs, wolves, etc. • Later I branched out into vet oncology and also have two oncology papers published in the top medical journals.
I moved to Canada last year and then this year moved to the US. Ideally, I'd like a career in academic vet med at a research university, but I realize this is impossible immediately, given that I cannot document any of my credentials from Burma.
If an academic career in vet med is impossible, what would you advice me? I need a way to pay my bills as I am running low on my funds.~ Thanks ~

I think you should talk to institutions you’re interested in. They may have options. From your experience it sounds like they’d be idiots not to find a way to work with you.

Imagine if you are having a great day at work, you get a promotion and your boss tells you you can go home early. You walk in the door and find your tokens being funged by another man.
