My Career In The Medical Field
Do I have to do this every day? Wake up to the biting cold that sent me shivering all the way to the health center? Work till late in the evening and even get to be summoned at the peak of my sweet night’s sleep? What have I gotten myself into? These were the questions that kept tormenting my packed mind for choosing to pursue medicine – a noble profession. Looking on the bright side, I get to serve the people or rather my patients with the highly accredited expertise inculcated in me. I could finally put into use what my lecturers invested in me.
Despite all that, I have always had a passion for medicine since it gives me a platform to treat diseases of all kind. Let’s say it has always been my dream to render such services to those in need. Since my childhood education, I have always endeavored to venture into this kind of field. The great thing about this is; each day unfolds with its own experience which makes it more fun. Despite the setbacks, I feel motivated to save lives from fatal conditions that would otherwise rob them of their precious lives without my intervention.
The health sector
Today, the health sector seems to be deteriorating due to the ways of life that most people have adopted, which I must say, is unhealthy. However, with the advanced technology; a lot of equipment has been created to curb the conditions from claiming lives of many. Moreover, more medicines mean better health. Telling by my many years in this specialty, I have gone through a lot but still, I keep forging forward. During my first days, I would have nausea at seeing gallons of blood gushing out of someone’s ripped vein or even a patient throwing up in front of me. At one time, I decided I had had enough but my will to endure it all brought me back to my senses.
As of now, I am that person you would look upto and mumble to yourself, “God, I want to be her: strong willed, quick to respond, friendly and passionate.” Well, that’s me. It takes time, you know. Step by step and you will finally reach there. With me, I had no course to turn to in case my medicine failed me. My strength in the social sciences placed me where I am today. Such a relief can’t complain; with the money I bag every month, which would dare turn her back on such returns.
Despite my love for money, my strong will to treat the patients has not at all been depleted from my mind. I see to it that I put forward any professional action deemed fit to retrieve my patients’ health. Life is priceless and loss of life that could be saved by a mere attention will forever haunt me. Every day, I wake up to save patients and saving its close relatives from anguish for losing its loved one. At the end of the day, at least I get to walk head high for saving a precious life.
The medicine world
Today, it has evolved tremendously, positively for that matter. Before, you would find a secretary jotting down names on a piece of paper as medical records. This has changed over time. There are computers to keep all the databases regarding the patient’s history which will in turn save time in administering the appropriate medication. This is very different to shoving through huge stacks of paper trying to find a patient’s paper while the person is at the verge of passing on.
Did I make the right choice in choosing this career? Indeed there is not a single moment I get to regret my decision except at the first time of course. Being looked up-to to deliver one from suffering caused by a disease is a great deal and healing them is another achievement. It feels like I won a Nobel Prize. I get to be a mother looking after my ‘children’ and praying for them to get better.
What makes it even more interesting is the team work in the hospital since there are several other doctors who we help each other when need arises. As time goes by, it makes you feel like a member of a huge extended family.
