Former Vocation Discerners to the Priesthood and/or Religious Life

How many of you discerned a vocation to the priesthood to the point of actually entering? And what was your experience while in the seminary and/or religious community before you left. Do you regret having left? And are you currently married or have an impediment to returning to that vocation - bills, ill family, disability, children, married, etc.?
