There was a man, a man with a dream to become a doctor, a surgeon.
But unfortunately, he’s having a hemophobia (phobia of blood), a bad thing that made him have to walk a different way to reach his dream. The thing that on that time was unknown for its contribution for humanity.
The man kept looking for a way to reach his dream, and as spoken ‘when there’s a will, there’s a way,’ therefore he found a clue of how to fix the problem.
“That’s right, I’ve to cure my phobia first.” so he went to a psychiatrist where he could only find that the psychological treatment couldn’t help him. But he wouldn’t give up. He went to the most extensive library and then found a book about coping phobias. It was a chemistry book.
“I need to learn about this. This can help me.”
Thus, he took a higher education for the chemistry course on his 22. There, inspired by his dream to become a doctor, he studied as hard as a human can possibly does. He learnt about countless compounds, mixtures of substances, played with vials, liquids, and so on until on one of the unknown day, He finally invented his own combination to make the perfect medicine to cure his phobia of blood.
After 6 years of hardwork, he succeed and the medicine to cure phobias was then officially accepted globally with the name of Arcantium-Phobiatica (derived from the words, arch, anti, and phobia). This type of medicine was also a breakthrough in the medic field since it had no side-effect at all to the takers (which also why it was named with Arch, a higher level of state that needs onerous atomic combination to prevent the unwanted effects to occur on human bodies when taken).
When he was 28, after he had cured his phobia and gained fame from his A.P., he continued his step to pursue his real dream to become a surgeon. Of course, he had tried his own invention and successfully cured his phobia. Happily, he applied to the best-known university for the field of surgery, of which is the hardest to enter, of only 1000 people will be accepted per year, from all over the world.
But, obviously, he’s too smart and genius to not be accepted.
Another 6 years passed and he had held the title of Doctor. He’s 35, and he knew he’s getting closer to reach his dream, but the thing he didn’t know was the fact that he’s unfortunately had suffered from Parkinson, the cruel disease that’s going to block his dream and also take his life away. Hearing the news, undeniably, he felt devastated, but the devastation didn’t stay for a long time.
His dreams and will to live were stronger than his shaking hands and uncontrollable nervous system.
With all the little control of his motoric ability, he pursued the knowledge of neurobiology, he rapid read hundreds of books from different languages, learn researches done by famous neurobiologists related to the Parkinson disease. For 5 years, all the thing he did were to read and try to understand how to fix his condition. But it is not a useless effort, on the 6th year, when he almost couldn’t open his eyes anymore, he found the solution to end his suffering.
In that instant, he summoned the most experienced and intelligent neurosurgeon & biologist to consult his finding and after hearing what he said, they couldn’t help but to shake their heads of disbelief, of excitement, of admiration, and of worship of how a man that had such a minor control of his own body could find, regardless of his bad condition. Yes, it was a good news because they both agreed and also saw the light to cure the Parkinson disease.
“Do it to me, the surgery.” using the latest communication method applied for a person with the disease, he proposed himself to become the guinea pig for the experiment. It was a good option actually, since if it’s not done, he’s going to die anyway. So, nothing to lose. On the other hand, if the surgery succeed and his finding was right, he would have the control of his own body back.
And he did, the surgery went smooth, and his Parkinson’s only left as a history.
That was one of the happiest thing he’d ever had. But, his struggle had not finished yet, after years of losing his body control, some of his muscles had suffered from athropy. He needed to take physical-painful therapies to rejuvenate them, of which took him another 2 years. And of course he succeed on that challenge also. After he finished so, he was 45 years old and regained his health again, and he’s back to achieve his dream again, a surgeon.
“I have a dream, and I won’t let anything hold me from reaching it.”
Now, after another years of learning about surgery, he’s one of the most famous surgeon in the world. But that’s not what’s most amazing thing about him, the greatest thing is that he had found the cure for phobia and Parkinson,
when he is blinded by his dream,
he built bridges for so many people in the world to re-reach their dreams.
