I know this is probably a dead end... But I have to try. I'm 26, a mother, was diagnosed with a rare disease during college (music major) and had to give up my degree and career. Since then, I've gotten more stable with better medications and therapies, but I'm still disabled. Like, wheelchair and can't type much disabled.

I love marine biology. I started studying sharks to get me out of depression a few years ago, and I've been studying them and ocean life ever since. I wish so much that I could work with or study marine animals for a living, but I don't see how... Being a professor is the only thing I've thought of that I might could manage, but that requires real-world experience first, so...

If I dropped everything to try and get a degree in Marine biology... Is there any possible way I could get a job in it? Knowing my limitations?

Congratulations on your journey leading up to this point in your life! I think if you can manage being a mother, and studying at the same time, you can accomplish just about anything that your heart desires. Studying and maintaining a family is one of the hardest things anyone can do, since it is something I did not too long ago. If you're passionate about educating others, then becoming an instructor at a community college or university is very rewarding. A university professor requires a minimum of a master's degree, so you REALLY need to be into marine biology if you take that route. Of course, life is an uphill battle, so do expect hardships and hiccups along the way, because studying biology requires a lot of time and memorization.

Best of luck, Marin Cre!
