I see around, all my peers settled and earning enough. A little bit of jealousy glides in my heart. My life has become static; like a old cassette it repeats and rewinds. Being unpaid with colossal tasks and meager respect isn’t easy! Sleep deprived, hungry and working at unlikely hours have made me cranky and a coffee addict. Even the aroma brightens my day! I walk for miles and miles, altogether and no shoe can withstand the pressure even for a week. I have changed atleast nine pairs of different varieties of footwear in this last few months. Saddest part, it’s not even an exaggeration! I don’t even have a life forget about a social one.
I see same faces everyday, atleast they greet me, that’s as much I can say. There’s only one thing that gives me joy, the happiness and the gratitude of the patients when they are cured and discharged. They remember me even if I play a very small role in their treatment; it gives me immense peace. Given a chance, I’ll repeat the same mistakes that landed me in medicine.
