Yes true, I left the USA about 5 years ago after trying the USMLE many times. I guess it was not meant to be. I returned to my father land and I am currently a year 1 resident in Family medicine with a lot of happiness. I have always loved medicine but truly believe you do not have to die in the USA while trying to pass USMLE.
I get to practice medicine and still manage to make a decent living while impacting knowledge to the younger ones. Doors have been opened and I am happy with my life. I know a lot of miserable colleagues who despite passing USMLE have still not been able to get a residency. My honest advise is to move on to something else if getting a residency is not feasible. After all "life is short and sweet". Good luck
