I’m really better off than most people.. April 29, 2006Posted by scan man in medical blogs.
Dr. Hebert has put in words – in his usual great style – what most of us doctors know is true, but hate to admit…
Something in the makeup of doctors makes them complainers….Certainly medicine is a tough line of work. But it pays pretty well, and it has definite benefits. It is about as independent a line of work as you can find, which is what I like about it. Although many people try to suggest what you should do, no one tells you what to do. M.D. really does stand for my decision. I wish more docs would come out and say, “You know, I really am better off than most people.” It takes character to be thankful for things as they are, and not to be always, vainly, wishing for better.
