I am currently a teacher for science in a high school, but it is in a high need program and i came here for i dont know what reason. I dont know what to do for my life.
I have no idea what to do with my life. I used to want to go to medical school, then i was told it wasnt for me and i kind of believe it. I was going to do research but got sidetracked and didn't like one lab I worked in for a year. I am discouraged due to personal things and I have no idea what to do. Nursing? Medical assisting? Work in an office? Nanny? Research (I have the skills and the brains..)? Just live? I am so tired of pushing myself all the time, but I don't want to fail.

Stop thinking about your job, and imagine the life you want to live. Where do you wake up Monday morning? What car do you drive? Where are you going? When you checkout on Friday, what are your plans for the weekend? With whom are you doing them with?

If you read those three books, I virtually guarantee you will get a vision and direction for your life. If you don't, the issue may be a mild depression, and you may want to see counseling.
All of the other answers have great advice. I'd also like to add that you mentioned wanting to go to medical school but were told it wasn't for you. If that's something you were really passionate about, it might be worth looking into again.
I'm in my fourth year of medial school. I and man of my classmates had careers before we realized that whoever told us we couldn't do it didn't know what they were talking about.
Listen, Do what your hearts asks you to do <3 You have the skills, the brains, and you have the heart. Try to find satisfaction in everything you do. Also take a break, speak with God ask him, he will definitely help. Speak to a Mentor, and get guidance. Your beautiful and that question that you asked is a start. Take care and God's with you always <3
Find a career counseling service who can give you an aptitude and interest test, to see what kind of career would suit you. Also, think about what kind of work environment appeals to you- sounds like a high demand environment isnt for you- maybe you need something more routine and less drama. Maybe a less demanding teaching job, or teaching adults instead of children. It may be easier to make a gradual career change, instead of a dramatic change.
