What major to choose?

Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some advice from others about possible major options. I started out in a 6 year pharmacy program and quickly realized that it wasn't for me. The problem was I chose to go to an expensive private school which costs me over 50K a year and had a really hard time with my freshman year classes. I thought I would be able to take out loans and pay them back with a high paying job but it was putting a lot of stress and pressure on me and I simply couldn't handle it. I decided to try nursing but I couldn't find a more affordable state school to apply to as all their programs are competitive in that they don't accept transfers and require strict prerequisites so I abandoned that option. I am not thinking of pursuing a finance degree with possibly a double major in public health to keep the health care field open as an option? I've grown up pursuing the health field because it produced stable and high paying careers but now I don't know what to do. I'm not interested in medical school and pharmacy and nursing are out. Anybody have any ideas in or out of the med field?
