As the days go by, I tick off each day remaining to round off my programme, with enthusiasm.
Dont get me wrong housemanship has been really great!! The clinical skills acquired, experiences, fun times and of course the alerts (my favourite part)😀😀😀😀 have been amazing. But everything that has a beginning surely must have an end.
When I came into the practice I was "as green as they come.
I couldn't even take blood sample without my heart racing and my hands shaking, but look at me now 😀😀😀😀.
I have seen the good, bad and ugly parts of the profession. I have had really inspiring and wonderday days and I have also had really bad days.
But in summary It's not as rosy as it seems but I know I made the right decision when I chose this path.
Aside the clinical experience, this programme afforded me, it helped me see life from a different perspective.
You see, I didn't really like living in the east and it was boring living far away from the city centre in a village far from civilization (no offence) My initial impression of the easterners here is that they were mean and sexist. (dunno if that has changed much now) It's difficult to miss how the males are priotized over the females.
It exposed me to lots of characters I had to put up with everyday. The nice and the meanies. But hey! that's life. It's a sandwich of all varieties of people and learning to thrive in the midst of all the shenanigans makes you a well rounded individual and a winner👑.
I learnt some things about myself too, took note of what I had to change or work on like being more interactive and sociable (problems of an introvert) learnt where to draw the line between being respectful and being stupid.
I learnt the value of patience. Patience in dealing with people, patience with yourself, patience with God. It's a key ingredient to living a happier life.
It was also a character building camp for me as well.
The trying times have shown me that I am stronger than I am, I do appreciate good health now, more than I used to.It's emotional for me at this point because I can remember vividly how this blog was conceived.
I was at home for 8months waiting for housemanship,
I remember how I cried, prayed and waited for my name to appear on the list.
I was also terribly bored.
I needed an outlet to let out my thoughts and keep my mind busy.
One evening I said you know what? It's time and then I wrote my very first article! OK not to derail
