On Being A Doctor

On Being A Doctor

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

All the facts placed in one piece. You are free to believe in the truth I share or the perceived 'truths'.

"
To eliminate widespread confusion regarding my qualifications, here are a few facts I'd like to share.

When I first joined WC last year, it clearly said in my 'about me' section that I'm a student of 'Final Year Dentistry' (it was actually my last semester when I joined). Now, those of you who have been in my friendlist from the start would know that I never hid anything about doing a Bachelors in Dental Surgery (which really is a 4 year course and not a 3 year one - the latter would just be a diploma and as far as I know, there doesn't exist a diploma in dentistry). A Bachelors is quite easily acquired at the age of 23, at least in the country I am from. So yeah, but a really young dentist here (deciding on opting for my Masters next year).

As for adding a Dr. in my name, after completing my Bachelors this year in Feb, I DIDNOT use it until recently around the time of my convocation (the degree awarding ceremony) and to further explain, the last I checked, a DENTIST is also considered a Dr., again, in the country I am from, and not only the PhDs. 


Those of you who are currently in my friendlist know that I love sharing pics of myself and in general and that is how it goes around in my city, which is quite a liberal one, regardless of the image of Pakistan you might or might not have heard about women. 

The pics I share are as original as I am, posted on my facebook account too (if you still have a doubt about that, pm me and I'll share a link to my profile), BUT I am not going to make every individual here believe in who I am, unless you really want to know.


Regarding the clash between my writings and my qualifications - I believe writing is a release, I do it in my free time (yes, I do have a job, currently working as a trainee dentist in a hospital). I see no reason why writings should reflect anything scientic especially if it's romance I'm writing about. But to further clear it, I'm on Quora too, where I write or answer stuff regarding my dental/clinical stuff (again, if you need to be sure, pm and I'll share a link).


It's so much easier believing anything negative regarding a person than really digging into finding the truth, but if it comes to the credibility of a person, I think we should be more considerate before jumping to conclusions.


My sincerity remains with all the cafe members as it has been from the start. 
Thank you all for bearing with me thus far.

hear hear young Doc ;) most poet/writers strive for honesty in their writings ..i think its one of the reasons that as a social network, the WC feels so comfortable ...with the proverbial grain of salt of course ... but i will check your link just to know you better; but prefer to read your stuff more ;)

Life is hard work and you need education. You did both. You are welcome my friend.
I don’t think you had to explain,you are a doc and that’s it! The fact it’s dentistry just means you like to sink your teeth into writing!

Whoa. Well done. Break the teeth of those who doubt you blindly. 😁
After reading this I feel what's wrong with people now a days? I mean seriously, since when people need to give justification for qualification. Are exams not enough? Great effort to write this to those who doubt you. I am happy to be a friend to such a brave, straight forward and honest person.
After reading the text in bold I felt that you could be a great journalist.

It's a pity that you felt the need to do this Yumna.
It's an indictment of what we all have let the Cafe become but it's time to reclaim the Cafe.
The idiot who wrote about you won't even read this with any sort of sanity so it might as well be in a newly invented language. His hate-goggles make his view of the world skewed and twisted and he seems to have converted erstwhile good people to his malignant cause. (I will pray for them)

My friend is Dr YumnKay - end of story.

:p lool I wouldn't be listening to that, not an Ed Sheeran fan 😕😛
It made me ache to read your words as I realized they didn't flow from the beauty of your soul's voice, but the piercing voices of those who for whatever horrid reason would strike out at a wondrous poet, doctor, and human being. I've been here over 10 years, Yumna, and seen more than I could ever wish to convey, but I am so glad you came, that you share your voice here, and I hope that the sounds of these piercers will soon slide from you like water off a duck's back. Your life deserves to be full, and it will be. That I know.
