"A care provider in progress: to cure sometimes, to relieve often, to comfort always. "


― Fitri Anggraini Pradityaningsih (FKUI 2010)

andinidr:

To cure sometimes
To relieve often
To comfort always
Even if unable to treat the disease,
Even if unable to lighten suffering,
Physicians can always be there for the patient,
Ensuring a caring companion,
For whatever the future holds.
-Untitled. Benyamin Lampson. Academic Medicine 2007;82:1112-3

Bagaimana rasanya kehilangan sahabat?


No one could describe how it feels, clearly.

Untuk sesuatu hal, mungkin kamu akan ada fase dimana kamu perlu menceritakan kepada salah seorang sahabatmu, karena kamu memercayai dia. Bahkan, sahabatmu rela menjadi ‘tempat sampah’ yang selalu terbuka tiap kau datang kepadanya. Sahabatmu juga, yang menyalakan lilinmu ketika gelap menguasai dirimu. Sahabatmu, yang selalu berusaha ada, untukmu.


Tapi sadarkah dirimu?
Beberapa pilihanmu ternyata justru menggoreskan luka di hatinya. Alih-alih merasa benar, yang kamu gunakan adalah perasaan, bukan logika. Bahwa sebenarnya kamu sendiri pun tahu, pilihanmu tidak selalu benar. Dan kamu tidak bisa membedakan itu.


Percayalah, kehilangan pilihan itu setidaknya (saat ini) lebih baik daripada kamu kehilangan sahabatmu sendiri. Percayalah, bahwa ketika kamu melepas pilihan tersebut, akan ada pilihan lain yang jauh lebih baik dari pilihanmu saat ini. Bisakah kamu memasukkan itu dalam pikiranmu? Bisakah kau kesampingkan egomu?


You deserve better, untuk sesuatu yang kamu anggap sebagai pilihan terbaikmu.
You deserve better.
You deserve better..

Untuk logika dan perasaan, bahwa semua hanya butuh penerimaan.
Untuk sahabat, penyadar terhebat, yang juga jadi segala obat.

Tugas seorang teman itu mengingatkan kalau kamu salah. Tapi, kalau teman-temanmu sampai meninggalkan kamu (satu per satu), tandanya memang ada yang salah banget sama diri kamu.
*ngomong ke diri sendiri*
Sesungguhnya cinta kasih kita kepada orangtua menjadi berlipat di saat kita sendiri sudah menjadi orangtua.

It’s me! :p

Mulai sekarang nggak boleh begini lagi ya. Berpikir positif itu PENTING untuk kesehatan.

SEMANGAT! :DD

Menikah itu banyak tanggung jawabnya. Rencanakan. Rencanakan untuk kalian. Rencanakan untuk anak-anak kalian.

Why do you think those two are hugging and crying? my resident asks as we watch our attending embrace a man about his age. It’s because one year ago that patient was given four months to live. I saw him then, he looked like he was on his deathbed.

No one knew what he had

But our attending figured it out. He diagnosed him.

It was a rare form of leukemia.

You know it’s rare when Google’s feeble attempts to help out only turns up a handful of journal articles.

Do you know how he knew?

He read an article about it a few weeks before.

Everyone laughed at him, but he remembered that article and demanded we run the tests.

Turns out, he was right.

Never forget, reading saves lives.

To the first years, just staring out your med school journey, not sure why they signed up for this. To those who just finished boards, and never want to pick up a text book again. To the premeds, who just want to finish up their pre reqs and get to medical school already. To the spouses, who wonder if they will ever see their significant others without a textbook again.

This is why we do it.

This is why we stay up past our bedtimes.

And wake up before the sun.

This is why we memorize overly complicated pathways until we can do them in our sleep.

Why we can name every class of antibiotic, even those no one uses anymore.

This is why we push ourselves to be better every day than we were the last.

Why we put our lives on hold.

Not for more letters to put behind our name.

Not for some number on a score sheet.

Not because mom told us to.

We do it because one day, a day that will occur far faster than we are ready for, we’ll have our own patients.

One day someone will come in and ask you “so doc, what is it.” And you’ll say to yourself, I know this.

So when the tediousness of studying gets you down, don’t forget:

Reading saves lives.

I need to read this over and over… so the med thoughts can occupy my mind rather than the other thoughts
Haha

Teach yourself to know value without comparison; to know what is great and what is good, to know fortune and tragedy without looking over your shoulder to see if someone else has it better or worse than you.
