Whenever I used to make a profile on a website I would leave out my job and my profile would just come off, blah. That was because I didn't want to identify with my job. Then as the years went on and I got deeper into Medicine, Psychiatry, Neurology and neuro- (brain) everything I realize that it was part of my identity and a very important part. As a person I am driven to "figure out" other people and try to help them get better if they are sick.
I feel privileged to be part of a world that most people don't know (or refuse to acknowledge) exists. I've chosen to dedicate my life to helping the people that no one wants to help and it just feels right for me.
My job is strongly related to my education and I use the experiences of working in an ER to stay grounded.
Do I wish that I had time to be an artist? play an instrument? Yes. I do things not related to my job all the time, greatly enjoy people (even if I can't always relate well), the outdoors ec., The gym has been a great outlet for me but I am still colored by my experiences. I don't just sit there and drool, I watch other people and how they interact with people and things are constantly ticking inside!
So yeah, it's me and I'm not ashamed
But if I for whatever reason lost my job, I wouldn't lose many of the things I've described in my post, they would still be there and I think that is whats important.
