Other people see you as demi god because you are med doctor, when you lose a patient, all fingers are pointing at you that its your fault, without having any idea what happened. People forget we are humans just like them, they expect you to bring them to normal living no matter the medical condition they have

Also avoid lifestyle creep! It's easy to let your expenses grow when you are working long hours and not really paying attention.
