Need some advice please-no one seems to care!!

Sorry this is long- if you have time please do have a read. If not-no worries.

I'm so upset and confused.
I got rejected for Midwifery which was really a back up. I always wanted to do optometry but feared I may not get accepted so instead applied for Midiwfery and got rejected from all of them.😢😢😢
So now I applied to Aston for Optometry and they have given me an offer if I get BBB. My target is only ABC!!
Truthfully if I get rejected for Optometry I'm going to be shattered!😢

My favourite teacher has always been so supportive and was the one who encouraged me to apply for Optom following my rejections.

As results day is near- I'm thinking of some backup (I've been told it's always a good idea) and I don't know what to do!!!! 😢😢 i want to go into healthcare and go to a local uni -not too far.
I'm looking at local Univeristies such as BCU/Aston etc and the courses they have available through clearing (which is what I'll be using if I don't get to do Optometry).😢

My sisters doing Pharmacy and she is happy as she's able to do what she wanted.
When I try and talk to my family about my options they tell me nt to worry and that I'll get to do what I've always wanted and that's Optometry-they don't understand that I'm finding it so hard to look for a backup.😢😢😢

All I know is that If I don't get into Optometry I want to go into healthcare and in profession that will allow me to help people.

I don't know who to ask for advice- my teacher stays in touch with me but I don't want to bother her and ask her for help and how I'm struggling to find a backup course that's suitable for me!
Before we finished sixth form-she did give me a list of websites that I can explore and I have but I can't find anything!!!! And I'll feel bad if I bother her again.

What shall I do- please help!
Do you know any ideas of well payed healthcare careers that I can do if I don't get to do Optom?
(I don't want to do nursing and as for Midiwfery I've already been rejected from every local uni in my area).

Thank you!!!

Nursing is one career.
