Crying During Medical Transcription

I am sitting here at my home office typing a medical report about a little boy with Down syndrome.

Tears are streaming down my face.

This job can be so hard for a multitude of reasons.


Prescriptions, dang it!

Sometimes while I am transcribing reports about patients who are taking drugs that could be eliminated from their lives, it is all I can do not to contact them and urge them to run, not walk, to a good naturopath. Dang privacy laws!


It is a corrupt system that sees our doctors

educated by the pharmaceutical companies.

Not thinking too much

By the standards of some people, I think too much.

Sometimes I don’t want to think too much.

Sometimes it helps to put music on in the background of my headset while I am working at transcribing medical reports for doctors.  I turn the volume down low for the music so I can still clearly hear the dictation.

Right now, I am listening to the entire album “Pablo Honey” by Radiohead.

I wonder if anyone can relate to just not wanting to think too much.

Music helps.
