The Internal Conflict
I was confused, sad, shocked and in a state of anger. The doctors that we trusted our lives with made a simple analysis of my mother’s symptoms and quickly made assumptions that there were no other possibilities except for back pain. I aspire to become a doctor, but I am not quite sure myself if I can handle the burden of making mistakes that can cost the lives of innocent people. Certainly, all the doctors are qualified and receive the best education possible and long hours of practices, however the slight chance that I could “mess up” or provide a wrong diagnostic could put a family through a painful and heartbreaking situation, similar to what I have gone through at the time of my mother’s illness. As Richard Parker says in his last few words, “with great power comes great responsibility”. I ask myself, am I willing to harbor the responsibility to make life and death decisions of others?
