SERVING HUMANITY

(my entry to the 3rd Filipino MD Blogrounds

hosted by dr clairebear)

I WAS NAUGHTILY ASKING MY INTERN DURING SURGERY THIS MORNING, WHY HE WANTED TO BECOME A DOCTOR. SA WAY DUHA DUHA, NITUBAG ANG HINAMPAK UG " TO SERVE HUMANITY DOC" NI BAHAKHAK KO UG KATAWA KAY MAO MAN JUD NI PIRMING I RASON SA MGA ESTUDYANTE NGA GUSTO MU SULOD SA COLLEGE OF MEDICINE. EITHER TINUNTO TO IYAHA O TINARUNG (TINARUNG BUWAD, NOY?) NAKALITAN KO SA AKO NG BAHAKHAK, WHAT'S WRONG WITH HIS ANSWER? PROBABLY , I WAS THE ONE HAVING THE WRONG REACTION. KAUWAW!

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF OUR LIFE IF WE CANNOT SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE? IN AN M.D.'S MIND SET, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF BEING A DOCTOR IF YOU CANNOT TREAT ANYONE IN NEED ? YOU SPEND ALMOST A DECADE BEING ONE AND IT WILL GO TO WASTE IF YOU WILL NOT USE IT TO PROMOTE AND IMPROVE HUMANITY (INCLUDING YOURSELF).

YOU MAY CALL IT ALTRUISM OR PLAIN HIPPOCRISY BUT REALLY WHAT IS WRONG WITH SERVING HUMANITY?

NA A PA PUD BIYAY DOCTOR NGA NAGPAKATINUUD SA ILANG PROFESYON. DILI BYA TANAN NAKALIMUT ANING BULAWANONG MITHI. ANG UBAN PUD BIYA NATONG MGA GINOO/AMO/SIR, MOHATAG BIYA SA ILANG PANAHON UG NAKAMAUHAN SA MGA TAW NGA TINUURAY NGA NAGKINAHANGLAN.

PERO NAA PUY UBAN NGA NAKALIMUT. HINAUT UNTA NGA MALAMDAGAN ANG ILANG HUNA HUNA. PARA SA ILANG KALUWASAN.

BUSA KUNG KINSA MAN GANING DOCTOR, DOCTORON UG MURAG DOCTOR NGA MUBASA ANI. WALAY SAYOP SA PAG SERBISYO SA KATILINGBAN, HINGLABAW NA NGA DI SAYOP ANG PAGPAKABUHI SA HARUHAY!

DIRI NA LANG....


WHAT IS THERE TO LOOK FORWARD THAN BEYOND THE CREEPING CLOUDS? THEY SAY ITS DIFFICULT, STEREOTYPICAL.
GONNA BE CONVENTIONAL.
SO I SING THIS SONG TO ALL OF MY AGE.
THIS ARE THE QUESTIONS WE HAVE TO FACE.
FOR IN THIS CYCLE THAT WE CALLED LIFE
WE ARE THE ONE WHO ARE NEXT IN LINE.

Doc Tess! Ayaw jud kataw-i nang pobre nga intern! They are the hope of our motherland as the cliche goes. Mukaon bitaw nag buwad bisag 48 hours straight duty sa ER.

Who knows, one of them might be truly following the blaze your making in that thrid world conuntry your living in!

Kuyaw ug post uy!

Hi doc, understood half of it lang Hahaha and I must say, there is nothing wrong with serving humanity. :)

Eventhough it sounds really corny, there are a lot of us whose primary reson for being MDs is to serve, right? And that can only be one of the best reason I cant think of. :)

Great post.:)

I think beauty pageant contestants and medical students all start out with the same dream, wanting to serve humanity. Somewhere along the way, though, reality takes over and we realize that we are part of that humanity we want to serve. We're only human and there's is nothing wrong with making our dreams and our realities meet half way.
Nice post, and I may have done the same thing you did more than once in my life! hehehe...
