My brother says my entries are too long. I guess he has a point but then again, it’s my journal right? And if someone can’t stand to read all I have to say, perhaps he shouldn’t stop by hunh?
10:38 pm. Tired as a mug. One of my surgical attendings
told me to get pregnant ASAP b/c I’m getting old, my eggs won’t last
long and the busy life of a doctor doesn’t allow for much give when it
comes to that. Besides, I don’t really need a man–I mean it
would be nice to have someone to help with taking care of the
child(ren) but still, I should consider it. Having children is
considered by many as the most important achievement in a person’s
life. She had a difficult time conceiving and at age 40, is
feeling the burn of having a surgical career and two young
children. What do you say to that?
“Well, Dr G– I would like to conceive but I would also like to find a
man before I do that. I don’t believe I should get inpregnated by
my local Indian restauranteur and good friend just because my eggs are
exploding, my hormones are raging and my life is coming to a slow and
painful end–but thanks for the advice?”
