You should know that in the medical profession the academic training and actual training are very strenuous and very demanding physically. We doctors have to spend long hours working continuously. Sometimes work gets stretched through day and night.
Needless to mention, we are not relaxed when work is completed. We do not go back home and enjoy or relax for the remaining day rather we dig into books because I have already mentioned that the medical profession is very demanding. I hope that now you can understand the stress that doctors have to go through.
Dignity and competency:
On top of all the stress that we go through, we doctors really love our self-esteem and self-respect like any other human being. It’s fundamental human nature. Money is an important aspect for us but generally, it’s an expectation from family - our spouse, our parents, that we have to meet.
