That is not Judgemental, that's her being real with you about how the health care system, and society views your "misdemeanors". Hence the "...this is how the medical field looks at convictions such as this."-
Try looking into something like counseling or social work, its similar, but you may have a chance in that. I've know several social workers who had sketchy pasts. They cleaned up and turned it all around. They acctually seem to have a better grasp of situations as they know what it's like being the "other guy".
It sucks but society is like that. Once you get a record, it clouds everything. Good luck in changing your life.
