today is one of the days that i feel stupid..Partly because I cannot answer most of the question, n worse if it is simple questions..
"Smoking predispose you to?"
me: bowel problems?
Dr L: erm, thats last on the list
Extention to the story:
Dr. L: so what other problems?
me: cardiovascular risk? (which is correct, to show dat i am not that stupid first la)
Dr L: the most important 1, I wont let u go if u cant get this.
Patient: Lung Cancer
2day is my 2nd last day in GP, tomoro assessment the chao liao... My top ranking tutor in GP, Dr L ... has been taking care of me tru-out the 3 weeks, even more than my own tutor... One of those tutor that I can talk to without feeling weird.. (cos i alwiz do) ...
Reflecting session with him b4 I leave:
I think you need to read more
You have alot of catching up to do
I feel there is a huge gap in your knowledge
There is no way of getting around it except reading...
He's not criticizing me, simply putting his concerns and opinions in the most thoughtful and sincere way...
and sad to say, what he says accurately describe me...
of course not forgetting the typical " I understand english is not ur first language" but he added: "but unless you can find a book in ur own language, u'll just have to do it..."
He understand me well:
" I noticed that you freeze when you got asked questions. Its like a white cloth wrapping over your head... for instance I dont believe you dont know smoking predisposes u to lung cancer. mayb its confidence. or you are expected not to know, so your first reaction is I DONT KNOW, when actually, U KNOW... "
Similar with other consultations, he gave me some methods and strategies that I can use..
"DO IT NOW, not next yearr.."
hehe, taupun i'll procastinate
Second final words: "You are here to learn"... Damn right I am..
Final Words: Lets go for coffee...
Conclusion : I am Stuppiadd.. not a good diagnosis 3 days before exam.. antibiotics also take 1 week la..
