A physicist, model(lol, yes very briefly) fashion designer, advertising business journalist, stay at home pampered wife. :P Ironically, the only two things I abolutely didn't want to be were doct

When I was six years old my baby brother was born. From that time on, I wanted to get married and become a mother. Wherever I went, if I saw a baby I asked to hold it. I was obsessed with babies. 

When my oldest son was little, maybe 4 or 5, I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. He looked at me like I was crazy, and replied "a man".

As for me, choosing a career was like flying in the sky, grabbing the colors of rainbow & I never wanted to miss any of them. So I wished if I could be an astronaut, pilot of air force, sniper, formula one driver, matador, martial artist, policeman, scientist, software engineer, farmer, businessman, magician, comedian, cartoonist, even dreamt of being a politician.
I can name only a few professions that I never wished for, e.g. bartender. 
But what fascinated me most was robotics and medical science. Allah knew what is best for me & HE directed me to medical science. So I ended up being a doctor. I love what I do & I couldn't be any happier than I am now.

Another doctor on the forum, that’s great! What do you specialise in if you don’t mind me asking. Judging by your name, are you a surgeon? :grin:

@Ruqaya101 You will eventually get used to it. Everything will be comparatively easier & more interesting after getting licensed as it will boost up your confidence & courage a lot. Just be prepared for studying your entire life without getting stressed out. :book:

@hasanhh I am not a psychiatrist. But I can sense something. What is it? Let us know. :confused:

@Heavenly_Silk I am glad to be part of this forum. As a newbie here, I may not want to tell everything in public. But I also wonder why sisters are usually smarter than brothers? :einstein:

Of course, I totally understand! Great to have you participating on forum anyway! :)

Eventually I grew up and decided to go to university; mostly studied English grammar, literature (American, British, World), linguistics and social sciences, along with all those other classes they require you to pass (science, math, etc.). I have worked as a librarian, English teacher and guidance counselor in elementary, junior high (middle school) and high school. I did get married and have kids, so my original career aspiration was fulfilled, alhamdulillah. :) 

I can just imagine that you’d be pretty good at all those too. Glad your original wish was fulfilled not only with your own family but with your motherliness to our ShiaChat family! :)

Like a brain surgeon? Goes with being a psychiatwist.

Get it? 'twist' As you or l get their mind twisted or untwisted.

@Stitcher  "sense something" challenge. An ENT?

Of course, he may be a 'mad' doctor, experimenting on shichatters with his new, flashing red avatar to see if any epileptic fits are triggered.

So l am back to believing he is a psychiatwist.

:shock:

Its a standard, feminist deceptive practice. :egg:

It is in their playbook.

:D

From my observation I can say, girls are usually smarter while men are usually wiser. (usually but not always)
Perhaps feminists stole part of my dialogue. So I might sue them for copyright infringement. :threatenlumber:

God, Hasan , you read my mind. I was thinking exactly the same thing when I saw his new avatar. Either that or this is what he uses to knock out his patients before stitching. Image result for devil smiley

When you, another uhty, or if a couple of other sisters write this, I take it as a compliment. For most of the other sisters, if they wrote it, I'd get worried that something was wrong in my brain.

Maybe not the stitching.

Could be he is selling ketogenic diets for money or kickbacks.

I wouldn't think there is a lot of money in suture. 

:dry:

That's interesting. Why did you leave medicine and what field did you choose after that? (if you don't mind sharing).

But the manufacturer of the suture will only get a few dollars l'd think.

When I did surgeries we used sutures made by Johnson & Johnson.

Is that somewhere in the Qur'an? Your observations are... somebody beat you to it he, fathered many cats. He observed Prophet(s)'s actions while being absent.

I thought you were there one who stitches the differences in the Ummah

Salam @Mzwakhe
Sorry, You had high opinions about me which I am not for sure.
People may have different views on something as everyones experience is different from others. Or, I could be totally wrong & I don't dislike to be criticized. But...comparing someone with that "father of cats" is a bit offensive, don't you think brother?

with aspirations of being in Iran & to get married(a fusion into oneness) & to be a complete being with a completed din. 

May Allah fulfil your wishes & grant you success.

I don't know, am thinking. Not to him but to what he narrates, no offence meant.

Insha'Allah.

Of all that I ask of Him(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), not to lose Him(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

alhamdulillah that you're a doctor, other doctors have left & there was this Italian doc who healed through AB(عليه السلام). So may Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you too Insha'Allah, you & your loved ones.
