You all know that I am a dentist ,but what you don’t know is that I wish I can work in an
other field ,but I can't because it is difficult to find jobs now days , in fact its impossible .
I don’t like my job for many reasons as the risk of contagion, Many of the patients I deal with are sick with (viral hepatitis-B) one of the most dangerous& infectious liver diseases . I am not even inoculated against the infectious diseases. Many other diseases are found in the poor provincials ,like typhoid fever( you can find it in all the provincials) ,Malta fever ,cholera is now a big problem , tetanus & many other diseases.
The only way of protection I get are nylon gloves & mask.
The people there are so Sloven ,they don’t wait in queue ,they don’t show respect to the medical staff .Some times they steal our money & bags. Most of them are illiterate , they don’t even read nor write .I feel very much sorry for their kids I look at them as victims. Their parents don’t send them to schools although education in Iraq is free & mandatory. They don’t care about their vaccinations .
Now days our health centre gives the village some alimental items ( Its from the Unisef ). We are only four doctors & about 20 sub staff , ( the other members are in (Telaefar) now because of the military operation . And you can not even imagine the mess ,every one is yelling , there is no enough air to breath, I stand in the middle of the swarms telling my self( you don’t belong here) .
I try to advice the people there about how they should be clean ,&to live in clean environment ,they should care about vaccination for their kids, to send their children to schools .But they are dummy,& I feel worthless there.
