@xox i'd contend that's not necessarily the job's fault, but the conditions surrounding the industry. working as a doctor is potentially extremely rewarding, but the demands and expectancies on your work are what's causing problems
Well, another problem is being an md in my country. Many colleagues and close friends of mine ran away from here and went to better organized countries (germany, switzerland, norway, uk...) after working here for yrs and they told me that the level of stress dropped from 167% to 23% for 5 times greater income... so, yes...shall see
Im also a factor here, i know... im highly functional on all fronts, youd never tell that im in stress if youd meet me irl but i do feel that my life could be much better (i know, dont we all?) but another reason is bc im not fully immersed in my job/career bc music is calling me every day, since always, and i neeeeed to make music, i neeeed to be creative in music but i dont have the needed time for it and that makes me miserable sometimes, even feeling ill
Fgs, im writing this in a cafe across my hospital, waiting for my 16hrs shift to begin... :) TIME, my greatest enemy!
