Well (physically) I have tendencies - that doctors are not (traditionally speaking.)
And Personality-wise - I don’t think my opposite-TypeA, naive beach-bum lifestyle meshes with the typical TypeA-impacts-clinical-practice scholarly Doctor.
Some people will change the world.
I just wanna have a good time.
Are doctors insensitives? I don't undestand how you deal with the pain.
Sure, there are some really jerky doctors out there who ARE insensitive.
But on the whole, we’ve just become accustomed to seeing difficult things.
I wouldn’t say that we deal with painful situations all the time. It really depends on what your specialty is and how much time you spend in the hospital. I really enjoy my job actually, and I see successes and happy things all the time. You have to focus on these things or medicine can wear you down.
As you progress in medical training, the things that used to be scary or sad become commonplace and you don’t react to them they way you first did. When you learn more about medicine, you start to focus more on the patients’ problems as an abstract or rational thing rather than as an emotional thing. This disconnect helps us get through when we do have difficult situations, but if we rationalize too much, we start having difficulty relating to patients.
But a doctor’s ability to ignore or rationalize or be numb to difficult situations does not necessarily carry over to their personal lives. We can deal with cancer patients all day and think nothing of it, but when a family member gets sick we still worry and mourn.
“Hottest man I’ve seen all month is a construction worker at Starbucks.”—He probably went to juvie or something.
Never seen a hot man in the hospital since- … I’ve never seen a hot man in the hospital.
“I will always love McDonalds-because when I was little, it was such a treat when my dad would come home for lunch from work and bring us McDonalds drive thru lunch.”— it’s not about the food-
….. But their McFlurries are pretty low cal… So… Check. Yourself.
I can immediately tell if i will be friends with someone based on their style.
And I have a pretty wide range… (A real life fanny pack to Chanel)- But…
.. There is smthng abt that high-pitched preppy-alpha-girl who thinks she some kind of civilian reincarnate KateMiddleton toting a ToryBurch that really deters me.. Half the time bc they’re so fake and cliquey- and treat other ppl like they’re small..
So- to them-
I just wanna say - sorry I ain’t pretty enough to shop at AnnTaylors or KateSpade … but, if you wanna BlueSteel walk off- I just got a pair of BottegaVenetas and they will walk all over your cute Nine Wests. I got a black leather minidress in the back someplace- that I’ll raise your polyblend Anthropologie find… So…. Step off.
Now. Before you mistake me for some label-whore-jerk,- Imma go back to wearing my uniform $4 Men’s 2(x)ist white ribbed tank, $12 vintage Levi’s cut offs in my $20 defect Converses. And don’t think that just bc I don’t act/look fancy that I don’t have an artillery in my closet. (Or in my head)
Stay humble- we all struggle. Nobody is any better than anyone else.
Unless, you’re a really really shitty person.
“You know when you are just fooling around with Tinder one night as a joke. And the next morning you discover you’ve several new matches- one named “XL” who proceeds to invite you to Vegas.”—I was not paying attention but it don’t remember an XL’s…
