Three main reasons I love about practical:
1. I love seeing patients of all races chatting and showing care towards each other
"God is one, man is one."
"The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizen."
I really love the scene.
It's beautiful, un-describabl-y beautiful.
2. I love seeing the patients smiling while doing treatment though it's painful at times
I used to ask them, "Uncle / Auntie, sakit x?"
Most of them would nod with a smile and the smile would stay as they continue doing treatment...
I see the light of courage in them.
Though the hardships, they stayed positive.
What about youngsters nowadays? Including myself.
3. I love to serve the patients
There's a famous proverb in chinese “助人为快乐之本”
It's SO true.
I feel happy when I serve them.
Guess that's the best thing about being a health worker :)
Shii, I'm an occupational therapist trainee
It's about using occupations (meaningful daily activities) as therapy to maximize patients' independence in their daily life :)
It's not a popular field at Malaysia but if you ask the westerners, most of them can tell what is it about x)
Maybe google can help if my explanation isn't clear enough :P
