Le voila! Another article in the guardian urging the public not to trust docs! ... Another teaser!
As we have already established that all senior doctors are a bunch of crooks and criminals, this time it's a 'do not trust the juniors' article! Reason ... they are all incompetent actors! ... hehe :-)
"As a fellow neurotic said to me recently, anyone who has ever sat through a medical student revue can't help but feel insecure about putting one's life in these people's hands. How can we be sure that the very moment we leave the consulting room, our GP isn't setting our catalogue of woes to a jaunty Donald Swann-style ditty?"
Well, you can't Rebbeca! .. and since you realise you're 'neurotic', you are already on the first step to recovery! But, you'd be lucky if the GP passes your file to a 'jaunty Donald Swann-style ditty' instead of calling all secure mental facilities to arrange you an urgent admission! .. and I now understand why the wise say 'the neurotic are nailed to the cross of their own fiction!' ... I'm glad you are seeking help though, even if it is accupuncture! Needles are good for you .. go for it ...:-)
So, there you are docs, not only are your juniors totally devoid of any medical knowledge, but senior GPs are so twisted, they will still pass desperately in need of attention cases, like Rebecca's, to the green twats regardless!
She then goes on to suggest that hypochondriacs should be drafted in to do junior doctor's assessments, which would of course seem like a good idea to a neurotic, to draft psychotics in! After all, they both compliment each others! Soulmates make the best teams, don't they?! .. then, it's the acting bit:
"You may have heard the story of Sir Laurence Olivier watching Dustin Hoffman as he ran around furiously to create an impression of breathlessness in the film Marathon Man. Olivier, disdainful of such alternative acting techniques, reportedly said: "Try acting, dear boy." Such waspishness will be commonplace, I fear, in every surgery in the land. You only have to look back at the student revues to see that they're all just frustrated actors, after all."
Well, hey docs, she's comparing you to two top class actors .... so, she does know your caliber afterall ... that's nice ..
I'm begining to really like them up there, if only for their hilarious sense of humour ... :-)
And guys, the 'kids' have already signed their name ... leave them alone ...
Better go prepare for my clay pigeon shooting session now .... PULL!
Isn't life beautiful?! ... A miracle! ... :-)
“I disregard the proportions, the measures, the tempo of the ordinary world. I refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. To enter ordinary relationships. I want ecstasy. I am a neurotic -- in the sense that I live in my world. I will not adjust myself to the world. I am adjusted to myself.”
And I can't click the articles in my 'In the media' news reel anymore :( It must be a hitch at blooger.com so, I hope it gets fixed soon and I am
REALLY SORRY ... :(
