What Job path should I take?

I am in eighth grade and I have really begun to think about my future. At one point I wanted to be a doctor, possibly an anestigiologist (not sure how to spell that) because I am interested in the body, but I don't want terribly excruciating hours. I am also very gifted in technology and might want to become a programmer. I love video games and was thinking I also might want to be an indie game designer. I am hesitant to all of these because I'm not sure if I will be able to handle the difficult schooling that comes with being a doctor. I also don't necessarily think ill love being a doctor, but I know they get paid a lot. I am scared of trying to be a developer or game designer because I might not be successful enough and I don't want to spend money to go back to school again. I also am not sure if my parents would approve of my choice of being a game designer. I have some great ideas for games, but I don't know how technology will evolve in coming years. I am pretty smart, getting mostly a's, but I think the pressure of med school. I think I would enjoy being a programmer much more, but I don't think I'll get paid much. Any suggestions and what classes should I take in high school for either one of my career paths?
