My Childhood Dream is to be an ‘Organ Designer.’

When I was a child, most adults will ask about my dream to be. It was monotonously said to be a doctor by me. The dream was put on hold as I have to finish my primary to secondary school. The same question was asked and I still wanted to be a doctor. For me to achieve my personal goal, I took Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy as preparatory for medicine. It was a smooth boat sailing when I had reached the end of the course. The course of action had changed when I graduated in my college with a diploma. I took the time to work in the hospital and tried to convince myself what would be the next thing to do. Time flies so fast and things had changed. I didn’t continue to take medicine and enjoyed working in the hospital as a Staff Physiotherapist. Now, I am not practicing my profession because I need a time off. I got tired seeing sick people and it drains me whenever they are in pain. You might think why I wanted to be an ‘organ designer.’ It is simply because most people in my family tree died secondary to a heart ailment. The term ‘organ designer’ that I am referring it is to be a ‘cardiologist.’ I was aiming to change the medical history in my bloodline. But, it cannot happen because the illness can be passed on from one generation to another. The best thing to handle is prevention and modify the lifestyle. “Did you fulfill your childhood dream?” “Are you still practicing your profession?” Image Credit: pixabay.com

nursing has always been my ambition and i am living it now. handling a patient in IMCU made me miss doing bedside care. although somebody told me that i should continue studying for medicine, i declined mainly because i believe i am bound to be a nurse, and i don't get tired caring for the sick.

It is nice to hear that, my friend. That's the reason why I spread my swings helping the sick people through transferring my professional skills in Tajikistan. Once, I had trained them. They will continue my advocacy. Now, I am still hoping to do it. Perhaps I will go still working with the community and it can be catering the people with disabilities (PWDs). I bow my head to you, Kabsat. I can't bear being in ICU or IMCU.

@Shavkat why? at least working in the IMCU gives you personal care to the ill patients and besides, there are only 8 beds in the area. we have a rehabilitation ward a few steps from the IMCU and several physical therapists do their responsibilities to assist the patients get back into their normal self again

@ridingbet I can handle such tasks in IMCU, Kabsat. But I am not so comfortable treating convalescent stage patients. I would still prefer patients in the wards.

In one small way, I did. I wanted to be a nurse, and I worked as one for a short time. I took the first step to get licensed as a Certified Nurse's Aid. I wanted to go further, but never did. That branch of my career was cut off early, and I found myself going in another direction.

I had tried to gain experience with my profession and I did for a couple of years. Then, I tried to explore the possibilities and eventually, I found out my destiny in helping the community. As of this point time, it is quite a setback and needs to deal with urgent matters.

I think you must be an empath as your patients drain your energy. You give a lot of yourself. When I saw your title I had a beautiful mental image of someone redesigning hearts without flaws. When I was kid I just wanted to help people and remind them how beautiful they are.

You said it right, my friend. Most medical professionals are trained to show empathy to their patients. At some point, I was totally drained because sometimes sympathy takes in after dealing with them. For sure, I did my best to let help them and encourage the positivity in life.

@Shavkat Yes they are trained to show empathy but not everyone actually 'has' empathy. You obviously do. :-)

I wanted to be a teacher when I was a child but my parents never wanted me to be a teacher. As my father is an engineer so he asked me to be an engineer so I am now.

I think you were able to love your profession now. I had some friends who don't like our major. Thus, they followed their dream and forget their profession.

First of all, best of luck to your new pursuit. We should go to the field where we enjoy working. I always wanted to be an engineer but now I am a freelance product designer. I am happy with this now.

I think you had gained a lot of memories in your previous jobs. I am sure I will also share some wisdom about living in the real world.
