If I died fighting for my patients. I’d be okay with that.@3 days ago with 3 notes
I can’t untangle myself from the people of Bulembu. I can’t help but feel this growing conviction that I can’t just be there two weeks out of the year anymore. i can’t just be oceans away. I must be there. I must be with them.
But what if I became a doctor in rural Africa and never got any recognition for it? What if I never find comfort again? What if I waste away and die there, alone? Would I be okay with that? Will I be able to love them enough that I will be okay with that? I want so badly to say yes, but I am terrified. I am so utterly terrified of giving over my life.@1 week ago with 5 notes
