i want to heal people

#VRML V1.0 ascii

I want to heal people. But I’m not a die-hard nurse or a social worker or a dedicated doctor. And I won’t be. Even if I’m going to be registered practitioner by next year, I don’t want to practice. I just can’t do it because here in these four and half years as a medico, a MB BS student I understood that a doctor can’t heal everything. Every wound, every disease every grief is not treatable… and these limitations hurt me. I hate boundaries.
Some friends say it’s better to do something than doing nothing. Some say “Try your best and work best within these limits.” And people do need a good doctor. A doctor who is not a machine mindlessly prescribing drugs from its list of P drugs to everyone who arrives to seek medical attention. And alas, every here and there I see such machine doctors. Their emotions are blunted; deaths don’t bother them; pains are nothing for them; and moans are only annoying. It’s not their crime; many of them were emotional humane humans before they started practice. Working within limits of facilities and inventions; encountering series of failures; tolerating abuses from people for the failure as if it was their crime and managing family and trying to fulfill dreams of wealth and luxury and… this all repeated for years is bound to form a machine doctor, a health robot programmed to earn money and prescribe or do things as they are given in a short book, mindlessly. This may not be universal; some exceptions are always there. But they are always much more than mere a doctor. They might be someone like angels who fly in the sky and bless people with happiness of health.7 Healing
