Default failed

I am new on here, a us fmg graduated 2010. I have failed step 1 3 times, passed step 2 cs 2011 1st attempt high marks, I have not taken step 2 ck. this past time I was 100% sure I had passed, but failed.
I am wondering what I should do from here. I have 5 months of observership, 2 months externship (all in 2009) and am doing 1 month in psych observership now as that is the field I want to go into.
Now I am wondering a few things, should I give up? and if i choose to go on, should I take step 2 ck first and then step 1?
PLEASE SOMEONE ADVISE i feel as if my dream has been shattered.

thats sad but i think you should start from step 1 b4 writing 2.
use materials that have proven efficient ie kaplan lecture notes & videos,goljan,atleast 2 qbanks and multiple revision of fa.

most importantly,dont seat for the exam until you get your desired scores in two separate nbmes.

i think psychiatry is muchless competitive and with good score in step1 & 2 you shouldn't have any problems.
