I also have a deeper respect even for the snobby ones now since like many people, I assumed a doctor’s life was incredibly easy, just telling underlings what to do while raking in cash. I’ve worked as a file clerk in a medical office for the past year, though, and even being that far separated from the medical profession itself has given me a glimpse of needy patients ALWAYS wanting more from their doctors and getting called out of a Christmas dinner because your one patient who is non-compliant with any medication just had a heart attack and says it’s your fault and you need to fix it.
This book has only furthered that understanding. It seems doctors walk away from the interning experience with two kinds of egos: the one who is convinced that he or she has earned their “stripes” long ago, come to know that they know everything, and sees themselves worthy of non-stop behind-kissing; and the one who is humbled and a little frightened by the whole experience with the realization that they will never be as perfect as they’d like. The first type of ego is definitely Amy’s. She seems to think the whole world should revolve around what she wants, can do no wrong, and is the kind of person who would grudge someone a $1 loan while endlessly griping about how no one will lend her fifty bucks – basically constantly complaining that no one ever does anything for her while not really giving any evidence that she’s done anything for anyone else. She’s got a real bad sense of entitlement as a parent and a person. Andy is the opposite. He truly struggles with simply admitting that sometimes he has no idea what to do. His cases overwhelm and humble him, even make him completely break down. He goes through the whole miserable experience with a genuine understanding of the humanity among and within him. Mark is somewhere in between, coming off as sometimes hard and uncaring until he loses his confidence and aches terribly after a perceived failure.
My job and this book have given me an idea of the medical profession – the medical life – that I’ve never quite considered before. It’s an eye-opener. My mother is a long- and hard-working nurse who gave me stories of the kind of hell she went through, but up until now, I never really KNEW. I still don’t, but at least I’ve got a fair idea of it.
