There is no better job in this world than relieving the suffering of others. YES, I did want to be a doctor when I was a child. It was a common answer when people ask what you wanna be when you grow up. It still is.. Here's a story, My uncles is an eye doctor. From his experience, he has seen many patients who are in tears after being able to see their loved ones once the eye bandage is removed. He says their facial expressions entirely change and their level of activity at home improves. It's awesome you know..As a doctor you have the ability and ooportunity to make a difference in people's lives. My uncle also quotes; Before healing, heal yourself phisically, spiritually, emotionally and socially.

No, i've never ever thought of becoming a doctor, I can't stand watching blood and I don't feel like make incisions. I like helping people though but I prefer doing that by running errands or provide people a shoulder to cry on rather than being a doctor. Another point is that I don't feel like studying for ages and ages and having to follow lotsa courses after you graduated. But I guess you didn't become a doctor? :)

when i'm in high school,i always hope i can be a doctor,then i can go to the outlying place to help the poor people there. How lofty the ideal is! But it doesn't come true. But i can also help those who need help by other ways.

Yeah, I've thought about it in the past. But really I doubt it's something I could do. There are people out there who would or will make a lot better doctors than I think I could.
