Believe it or Not, This is Our Lifeless Life

10 things people don't know about doctors (especially houseman):

1. We are busy. Much busier than prime minister's PA :p

2. So busy that sometimes we have to 'tahan kencing'.

3. We usually did not eat lunch.

4. We have at least twice a week of 36 hours++ service which is called ONCALL (rarely with sleep).

5. Most of us might have vitamin D deficiency as we rarely see the sunshine (from home 6am, go back at 7pm).

6. Most houseman has experienced at least one car accident due to post-call/*tagging exhaustion or sleepiness.

7. Unlike other jobs, we don't have weekend off (at least medical in HSB don't have). Work until you drop!

8. We are so busy sometimes we cant even have time to attend everyone the way we should have done. I'm sorry to all my patient if I have ever made them feel ignored, please forgive me.

9. No excuse. Sleepy? Tired? Hungry? Are they more important to be fulfilled than your patients? No. So no excuse.

10. No room for mistakes. But human always make mistakes. That's why, we are not depending on ourselves, but we are doing our best and leave it to Allah. Keep close to Allah, He'll guide us to the right path.

~Some were exaggerated, most of them were the truth, but none are lies. These are written to show the real world of houseman and for us doctors to find the real passion in this profession. We can always be human, but superhuman is built from the heart. Let's be proud of this profession for the sake of human lives, insyaAllah there will be blessings for us when we do it with passion.

~Thanks to my family and those who have helped me through my days of fatigue and tears. Only Allah can repay the love you have given me.

*Tagging: the first 1-2 weeks of adaptation in a department/posting where we have to stay from 7 am to 11pm.

thanks for sharing iman! wlpn tgh busy kalah PA PM...hehe.
sy tak sukee no 2,3,9,10. tapi yg palingg x suka no 9 dan 10. huhu. inilah harga yg harus dibayar, kan.

sebenarnya yg dh berat ni tambahhh berat kalu tak ikhlas..and susah kalau tak minat..kan? so kena minat dan ikhlas baru rasa ringan skit. (ckp kt diri sendiri ni). tgh koas ni wlpn x sepenat masa housemanship tp sdg memupuk diri (cewah ayat) supaya ikhlas... dan usaha diri supya INGT MINAT dan NIAT KENAPA nk jd doktorr...

bila tgk doktor2 kt sini layan patient acuh x acuh je, diri sdri ckp aku xnk jd doktor mcm tu. tapi bila memikirkan diri sendiri di tmpt itu..yg sgt penat, x ckup tido, mkn etc..adakah masih mampu tersenyum..?? wlpn dlm diri ckp 'i want to treat my patients like they all r my family members, or treat ppl the way u want to be treated'.. but if i was in the same boat.. would i can still smile???

iman, thanks a bunch for sharing our real lifeless life!

Sunyi blog ni, bilalah boleh nampak penulisan baru. Dah ramai stop menulis sejak zaman facebook dan instagram. Kurang penulisan, kurang orang membaca. Jangan takut menulis kerana takut tiada pembaca. Tulislah sebab suka. Pasti pembaca akan tiba.
