final professional exam 2.0

Final Professional Exam is freaking next week!
Macam tak percaya dah nak habis medical school inshallah. Memang berdoa sangat Allah beri kemudahan waktu exam nanti, ditenangkan hati, dilapangkan dada, mudah menjawab setiap satu soalan teori, dapat patients yang cooperative, examiners yang lembut hati, dan dimudahkan urusan untuk menjawab soalan examiners dengan tenang dan betul, dan ingat apa yang dah belajar di saat memerlukan. Ya Allah, Allah jelah tahu macam mana perasaan aku sekarang ni. Banyak sangat tak cover lagi. Sekarang ni cuma mampu berdoa apa yang aku dah baca yang tulah masuk exam, dan diberikan petunjuk untuk baca tajuk-tajuk yang akan masuk exam nanti. 

Semoga kami satu batch 100% pass final professional exam in one go. Tak boleh bayangkan kalau ada salah seorang yang tercicir. Semua orang nak pass. Takde seorang pun nak fail. Orang-orang yang dah pernah rasa fail macam aku, lagilah trauma. Bukan senang nak bangkit balik daripada gagal. Susah. Hari-hari minta dengan Allah bagi kekuatan. Aku rasa failnya aku masa medical posting itu ialah turning point bagi aku. Selama ni takdelah nak bergantung sangat pun pada Allah, doa pun cincai tiba-tiba je dah habis. Tak faham sangat pun konsep rezeki. Bila dah fail haritu, barulah sedar semuanya yang hidup kita ni macam mana pun perlu berpaksi pada Allah. Bila kita dekat Dia lagi dekat. Bila kita jauh, jauhlah Dia. Lainlah perspektif aku tentang hidup lepas aku fail haritu. Hidup ni kalau kita bergantung pada usaha kita sahaja memang takkan rasa cukup, rasa tak tenang, risau, tapi kalau kita letakkan pergantungan kita pada Allah, disamping usaha yang selari, inshallah rezeki tu mencurah datang lagi kalau kita yakin Allah tolong, Allah ada sentiasa ada, Dia dengar, Dia nampak, dan kita percaya Allah takkan kecewakan kita.

Sekarang dah nampak hikmah fail itu hari. Lagi satu konsep syukur. Tak pernah fail sebelum ni, daripada first year sampailah ke final year berderet pass sampai syukur tu dah tak sepenuh hati. Dia rasa macam okay pass so what? Next time mesti pass punyalah. Sekali Allah jentik bagi fail sikit terus terduduk meraung macam apa. Teruk aku nanges haritu. Sampai mak & abah risau sangat takut aku buat benda yang tak elok. Lepas fail haritu, baru nampak semuanya. Bila kita bersyukur, Allah akan bagi lebih lagi. Oh dan aku lepastu lebih kerap call parents minta doa. Sebelum tu jarang sangat. Seminggu sekali dua minta doakan pun sebelum nak exam je. Lepas fail tu tiap kali call  mesti akan minta doakan. Call nenek & atuk pun makin kerap. Kadang kita lupa doa parents & orang yang sayang kita nilah yang buat urusan kita mudah. Kalau tengok usaha je tak cukup weh. Banyak faktor lain yang menyebabkan seseorang tu berjaya selain usaha semata. Kuasa doa tu dan rahmat Allah lagi power daripada usaha semata. Semuanya kena seiringlah. 

Aku memang desperate gila nak pass final professional exam and graduate tahun ni juga. Cukuplah sekali haritu rasa peritnya fail tu macam mana, cukuplah sekali tu keceweakan mak,. abah, nenek &atuk. Aku percaya Allah akan tolong. Dia takkan biarkan hambaNYA sedih lama-lama. Bila kita minta, kita mohon dengan penuh pengharapan dan percaya, Dia takkan kecewakan kita. Allah itu ialah seperti apa yang kita sangka. Jadi bersangka baiklah. Inshallah. Aku dah mampu bersyukur Allah failkan aku haritu, tegur aku, supaya aku dekat dengan Dia, berharap dengan Dia. Jadi bila aku dah dekat, dah bergantung dan berharap pada Dia, aku yakin dan percaya inshallah Dia takkan kecewakan.

Final Professional Exam

5 years journey of medschool is coming to the end inshallah. Only Allah knows how anxious am I right now knowing the final professional exam is next month. Yes freaking next month!!! How scary is that. Banyak benda dah terbayang. So much worrisome. Everyone is fighting their own battle. Semua orang tengah work hard, semua orang takut, semua orang nak graduate on time August tahun ni juga. Same goes to me. The fact that I had failed medical posting itu hari double the fear. This is my last chance to be eligible for final professional exam. Inshallah inshallah pass. Sekarang ni cuma Allah je boleh tolong. Tak bolehlah nak describe macam mana perasaan sekarang ni. Kadang duduk senyap-senyap rasa nak nanges, nanges juga. I know semua yang dah pernah fail sekali mesti nak yang terbaik and pass final posting ni, juga final professional exam. I'm not alone. Alhamdulliah orang sekeliling pun bagi semangat. In need of positive vibes and segala macam kata-kata semangat sekarang ni. Any negative vibes sorry tak layan. 

The only thing that can save me during exam is Him of course and ilmu-ilmu daripada first year. Ya Allah scary gila. Tapi tulah dulu sebelum first professional exam, ingat lagi Mr Arif ada cakap, buat apa kita duk fikir perkara yang dah lepas or risaukan benda yang akan datang. Yang dah lepas, lepaslah. Yang akan datang ni, semua depends on harini. So kalau kita buat baik-baik, kerja keras, usaha sehabis baik, inshallah, Allah izinkan untuk kita dapat kejayaan di masa depan. Tak payah duk takut, risau. Just wasting your timelah. Baiklah masatu digunakan untuk susun strategi work really hard for the future. Selain usaha, kena doa banyak-banyak. Inshallah Allah tolong. Allah takkan biarkan hamba-Nya seorang diri. Kena percaya. 

"As long as you pray, you knock the door of Allah. And whoever knocks the door of Allah, He will open it"
Walaupun deep inside still ada risau, takut, inshallah inshallah semuanya akan dimudahkan. 
Ameen.

fast forward 5 months

Hi. 
It's been a while.

The reason why I didn't bother to blog for a long period is because I was trying to recover from my failure. The thing is I failed my third posting, internal medicine. For 5 years in medical school I never ever failed in any postings or blocks. This was my first time. My mom said I always get what I want that's why I at lost, I cried so bad, till I couldn't utter any words out of my mouth. My parents were terrified as if I'm going to do something worst. I guess I've already move on. Before, I always said that I'm so much comfortable with myself, I'm in comfort zone, I always passed no matter how playful I was, how not serious I was with the postings, I didn't study much, I loved sleeping and wasting my time. After my failure, I was too afraid to fail another posting, I got two more after internal medicine which are paediatrics and o&g. Fail another one, I have to repeat a year while my friends already graduated and being a doctor. I'm so not gonna make that happen. So what happened after that? 

I changed. I studied hard than before. I made notes. I participated well in class. I pray a lot. I've mentioned in my previous posts how my dependence toward God was lacking. Not anymore. I sought strength, patience, and guidance from Him. I know to Him can I only rely on. When no one can help you, it's 1-1 between you and your Creator. I cried in my prayer. I was lost. Few days back, deputy dean called me to his office pertaining to this issue. He asked me how do I feel now? I'm glad that I failed Prof. If not I'll still be in my comfort zone. "But only once". Yes Prof, only once, no more after this. Inshallah with His help, I'm going to sit on final professional exam this July and graduate as a medical doctor in August 2018. Inshallah. I will work harder in my final posting, o&g which will begin in May. I had my exam last Monday & Tuesday. Truth be told, I never felt at ease like that. God helps me a lot. He ease everything. I think that was the smoothest clinical exam I ever had. Inshallah I will continue my hard work and seeking Him like I'm doing now. I crossed into my friend's instastory and it's really touched my heart, 

"When it's bad, pray, when it's good, pray"

Allah. I think I'm an ungrateful creation. For all the things He have done, I hmmm :( I would like to thank to all people who are there when I needed the most. Less than 3 months left for final professional exam, and 50 days + for end of o&g exam, it is my ultimate wish to pass it all and graduate together as a medical doctor with my fellow comrades this coming August. 

Whoever reading this post, please pray for me.
May Allah bless you guys.
Ameen.

it's 2018 bebeyyhh

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I just woke up from sleep at 4 am. This is very usual of me to sleep as early as 8 pm and wake up while everyone is still sleeping soundly (only happen in Kuantan). I prefer to sleep late and be awakened by mom every single morning when I'm home (but lately my biological clock alerts me that it's already 6:20 am, so wake up sleepyhead!) I missed home already. The best thing about living with grandparents is that, if your momma couldnt make your favorite dishes, they will, if your father couldnt bring you durian home, they will. I had fun collecting durian with them last weekend. This year is their 60th year being together :) #relationshipgoal

My ultimate goal for 2018 is to pass final professional exam in July and graduate on time as a doctor, in August. First, I need to pass these 3 postings ahead which are medical, paediatrics and o&g. I hope I get posted to the nearest hospital from home as soon as possible after I graduated. Getting married or engaged is not in the list, but if, I say if there is possibility of it, why not? Please God ease everything for me. 

Okay then, bye.

2017

What are the things that you have achieved/ done in 2017? Hmm flashback mood on:
Let's turn on the music first, 


In January, I did specialized posting, if not mistaken dermatology and orl-hns. I needed to go to dermatology clinic like every single day for 2 weeks except Friday. I learnt things from books and clinic, I got to see severe psoriasis involving the scalp, hands, legs, back and abdomen, ichthyosis vulgaris, a condition in which the skin looks like fish's skin when the skin doesnt shed off the dead skin cells, leprosy, wartz, and other cases that I thought I only can see them in the book. During orl-hns, I guess I really enjoyed this posting so much. I loved the environment in this department. At that moment, I think of being an orl-hns surgeon sounded cool too. Well, that is what happen when I feel belong and attach to the department's environment. 


Born in February makes me a February baby. In early February, after orl-hns, I then did ophthalmology followed by anesthesiology. Ophthalmology was the killer among all postings in specialized posting. I did so bad in exam. Seriously. And I think I didnt enjoy that posting so much. Because of the environment I guess. And the topics were quite difficult. Plus my one fault for not revising religiously. Anesthesiology, hmmm like other postings that I enjoyed, I did wanted to become an anesthesiologist once. My birthday falls at the end of the month. This year was different that previous years, because Shahrin's mother did sent me birthday wishes kbai.


Moving to March, I had my exam, then went to Hospital Melaka for forensic posting for a week. This was not my first time seeing cadaver's body being dissected one by one. My first experience was during my third year, when I was in paediatrics posting. While waiting for occupational therapy patient, as I heard announcement "white code" my friends and I ran to the morgue. And since there was no houseman around, we got to assist the doctor dissecting the body. For the first time ever, I got to touch a human's brain. In Melaka, we got to see few forensic cases. Apart from that, the doctors also taught us about suicidal, homicidal, abuse, rape and drown cases, how wound of different characters looked like, and how to estimate the duration from the actual time of death from maggots. 


Okay right after I finished with forensics posting, I flew to Seoul, South Korea. It was my first time being there, and second time being abroad. It was early spring so the flowers were not blooming yet. It was really cold. I bet if we go there in January I wont able to go out because of the coldness. I cannot stand too much cold. What I missed the most, of course the weather, though it was cold, I like it because my make up stayed still till the evening and my skin looked brighter, not oily and hmm the korean food, its wayyyy different from Seoul Garden especially the kimchi. I would like to be here again one day. 


My April begins with Family Medicine posting. I was posted to Klinik Kesihatan Balok. Again, at that moment, I wanted to become a family medicine specialist. I heard that the passing rate of family medicine is quite low. Out of 10 candidates, usually only 4 passed. Whoever passed within 4 years at the first try consider lucky/genius. Seriously. To become a family medicine specialist, one should know at least everything of everything. Sounds complicated. Absolutely. I ended my April with seeing Shahrin after 6 months didnt see each other hihi. God I missed him so much. 


Then came May. In May I had my last posting as a 4th year medical student which is Community Medicine. In this posting, we needed to carry out a mini research within 5 weeks, hmm its more realistic to call it survey rather than research I think. Hmm I already forgot the topic, but we proposed quite few topics before finally being approved by our supervisor. To thank the participants we did hold an event where there were talk on obesity, health screening and sukaneka for the kids. Ha the most memorable thing in this posting is that we were posted to Jerantut for 3 days followed by Kampung Bantal for 2 days. We need to cross Sungai Pahang to go to Kampung Bantal, about 1-2 hours journey by boat. Like a child who never sees the stream, we did main air, simbah menyimbah antara satu sama lain hahahaha. 


Whats happened in June? Hmm exam, puasa, and raya. Ha as I passed my last posting which is Community Medicine, I then did elective posting, a requirement to get into final year of medical school for 6 weeks from July till August. My team completed a book for vascular surgery. Nothing much to be told throughout the posting since I just did my job, staying in mahallah, sometimes went out for air. 


Finally, at the end of August, I began my final year with surgical posting. I already wrote on my surgical journey thought its not much, in my previous post. Not going to repeat that. I DID GET TESTICULAR CANCER FOR MY LONG CASE!!! The case that Ive never clerked before. Luckily the examiner gave me 51/55. Thank you Dr,even I gave you such a rubbish answers. 8 weeks in surgical posting, ended in October. During interposting holiday, we went to Cameron Highlands, it was my first time and gonna be my last time too. Looks good in picture but hmm too crowded with people and biasa je kot. Kbai. But I like the weather hihi.


In November, I was posted to psychiatry posting. At the first place, I never knew that I would fall in love in psychiatry. And again, I wanted to be a psychiatrist. This is my current ambition for now, though it was quite confusing at the beginning. I didnt know how to stop talkative patient from keep on talking and how to make a quite patient speaks. 


The posting was just ended a week ago, in December. I got the exam's result yesterday. Alhamdulliah I passed. But I'm quite sad because I didnt managed to get distinction. I'm quite confident with this posting actually, but turned out I did bad in my exam. For long case, I got panic disorder with agoraphobia, clinic cases that I'm not so familiar with. My mistake for not clerking clinic cases frequently. Too much focus on ward cases like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and also major depressive disorder. I hope I do well in the next posting which is internal medicine. 


So good bye 2017 for good. 
I'm really looking forward for 2018 because good things are about to happen. 


With that,


HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 

I WISH YOU ALL A SMOOTH SAILING JOURNEY IN 2018!
