People running back and forth, bright lights present all over the cold room as you hear shouts of pain, crying, laughter, just a mix of all noises summed up together. The emergency room is packed that night, and for anyone that would seem like a busy heavy night, but for those that have studied and put in the years for these moments its just a regular day in the office. Doctors take pledges to help the human spirit heal physically and emotionally, therefore I set out to become one of those that help mend the broken.
I always been the patient (patient of a kidney disease called Nephrotic Syndrome) looking at the surroundings of this enivroment, and the care and knowledge each person within that space contribute to help random individuals they have never met and have no connections to. I’ve grown up in hospitals without a choice, but took in much learning, and understanding even until now. Graduating high school I quickly set out to make this goal a reality, so since then I’ve dedicated myself to the study of medicine through school.
I wanted to make a difference, and finally be the doctor that could connect on a deeper level with their patients, to know every feeling inside and out of the disease that’s plaguing the body. I want the words “I understand” and “I know how you feel” to actually hold complete truth, and meaning and not just be another cliche. There is so much my eyes have witnesses with a great amount of compassion taken in at an early age, that how could I not give back?
