They call them the ‘professionals’
Like they have a fucking clue.
But really they’re all lost
And guessing just like you.
I’m watching This Is Going To Hurt on the BBC at the moment and it really does make me chuckle. It draws the curtain back on what it’s like to be a doctor, and just how clueless we all are; even those who we trust our lives with.
Anybody who trains for a job, and works hard to get there, spends that time waiting for the moment when they don’t feel like an impostor. I wanted that moment when I started training to be a teacher. And yet, I still feel like I don’t have a bloody clue.
Watching this programme about doctors makes me realise that everyone feels like that forever. The people that make it and that stick out these careers are either really resilient or really stupid.
I wonder how long I’m going to be able to pretend? I’m pretty stupid so it could last quite a while….
