14 PRECONCEPTIONS OF A DOCTOR
- THE WALKING ENCYCLOPAEDIA:
People think doctors know everything under the sun. Doctors have a grasping power of sun's speed, but they cannot know everything about everything. Definitely, they will know something about everything.
- THE CLEANLINESS BUBBLE:
They carry sanitizer along wherever they go, do not eat without washing hands, make sure they are 10 miles away from dust, pollen, pollution, and dirt. They are the walking pillars of asepsis.
- GODLY MAN'S TALES:
Patients look up to doctors as Godly men. Inevitably, doctors treat the disease at hand, but God heals the suffering humanity.
- NEVER SLEEP:
Yes, they have innumerable rounds, back-to-back surgeries, with a few breaks here and there to devour up food, everything is just so tight in their schedule. It has been repeatedly said that no doctor should go without sleep beyond 30 working hours otherwise it may result in reduced cognitive abilities, loss of memory, chronic drowsiness and chronic fatigue.
- THE NEWEST WRINKLE:
Doctors are a trend to follow, in the way they live their life, the way to keep infections at bay, the way they make sure to spread the word of prevention.
- OBESITY BY BLOOD:
Their lifestyle can make them put on a few pounds if they run clinics alone, and lack motility in their schedule. But again, BMI differs from person to person.
- VISIT OLD DOCTORS:
An old belief which people had been ardently following that a young doctor lacked a depth of knowledge and experience, true that, but that doesn't mean they know nothing about the human body. In fact, young minds are fresh with medical knowledge.
- PRESUMPTUOUS OR RUDE:
They have hot heads, are very arrogant, and proud of their knowledge and professionalism. By all means, they wear aprons with pride, but they are not presumptuous. They are extremely down-to-earth, unlike the popular belief.
- SUBJECTED TO THE BLUES:
Yes, an increasing amount of administrative paperwork, working hours at surgeries, extended shifts, lack of sleep, reversed biological clock and missing breakfast subject doctors to the blues of depression, stress, peer pressure, alcoholism, and smoking.
- DOCTORS AREN'T HUMANS, BUT MACHINES:
They work endlessly, the schedule is tight, and machines which don't need to refill their energy. They are constantly under pressure and think time as their biggest enemy.
- HEALTH FOR GRANTED:
Amidst all the emergencies, their health gets totally neglected. Their good health is given no priority and they slog themselves through the end of time.
Yes, they think with their head and not with their heart. Considering that, if they don't, they will fail in their case.
- NO HOLIDAYING:
Every human being needs a vacation so why can't doctor need a vacation too? They are the most stressed professionals and they also give up on sleep so that their patients get to sleep peacefully.
- IF THEY'RE REFERRING TO BOOKS, THEY DON'T KNOW MUCH:
They know nothing about the patient's suffering if they're referring to books, an old myth. They need to stay connected to their basics and updated with new inventions.
SO, NEVER EVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!
