Reading my last post again I realised I was too negative. Is it true that at Forty I have lost everything that was good in me? No It is not true. Let me try to enumerate the positive changes in me.
My ability to communicate with patients have improved over time eventhough time available for each patient is less. My ability to find out the correct cause of the each patient's problem have also increased very much. This have helped my patients from undergoing unnecessary investigations and mental trauma.
I have established a very good practise with a large number of loyal patients. I read [when I get time] journals and Text Books.Still now I am one of the better informed doctor of my age.
I have a very good relationship with all other doctors I work with.
I have done some good work in training other doctors in HIV/AIDS. I have become a much better speaker in front of general public and even in front of doctors.
The quality of care I give to my patients as a whole have improved.
Lastly and not the least I have a blog of my own which I am able to maintain with frequent posts.
So Forty is not bad at all.
