Question A Challenging Medical Puzzle

I have consulted umpteen doctors. Hitherto none gave a satisfactory answer. Hitherto none gave a satisfactory explanation.

Symptom 1:

Prone to abnormally high number of mistakes in clerical and data entry tasks: Everybody makes a little bit of mistakes in clerical and data entry work. But in my case, the frequency of mistakes is abnormally high and hence the complaint. Now don’t ignore symptom no. 1 because the description is small.

Symptom 2:

Immense difficulty in doing work in organized/orderly way:

Example 1: Suppose 10 new desktop computers are purchased for a college laboratory. One power cable is for CPU. It is plugged to electrical socket to turn on the CPU. Another power cable is for Monitor. It is plugged to electrical socket to turn on the Monitor. A VGA cable is used to connect Monitor to the CPU. Keyboard and mouse is to be connected to the CPU. So setting up the 10 desktop computers should be easy. It should be piece of cake. To me it is abnormally perplexing and confusing.

Example 2: Suppose there are 30 computer systems in a lab. This computer lab is to be prepared for a class test of computer science students. Some are damaged beyond repair. Some systems have perfect CPU but partially damaged keyboard or mouse. A decision has to be taken whether those systems’s keyboard/mouse is to be exchanged with the keyboard/mouse of irreparable systems or if the damage is minor. Some systems have small issues with CPU but are manageable even without repair. Some CPUs should be necessarily repaired in order to use them. Some don’t have CD drive and hence external CD drive is to be used to install software on them. Some have inbuilt CD drive but since their USB ports are not working, the CDs have to be first removed from the portable external CD drive and then inserted in the system’s inbuilt CD drive.

Now the task is to make ready as many systems as possible for the class test and give a detailed account of how many are working, how many are not working, what are the issues of defective systems etc.

Of course, such complexity would be confusing to even normal people. But other employees go about it easily. To me it is abnormally perplexing and confusing. The lab of 30 systems seems like a lab of billions of systems with a great variety of defects in them, each requiring different corrective actions.

Symptom 3:

Staggering slowness:
I do things very slowly. Be it any task. Be it washing clothes at home, be it packing, be it assembling desktops, be it data entry tasks, be it clerical tasks and so on. What others do in 15 minutes, I do it in 2 hours.

As a result, I have to surreptitiously enter the lab after working hours like a thief and stay till late at night in order to complete the job. I also have to spend my holidays secretly working in college. At such times I would be in fear of boss or his boss showing up at the college.

Overall effects of this neurological / neuropsychiatric disorder:

My boss and colleagues tolerate me. Practically speaking, they do my work and I simply collect salary. I get scolded a lot but still I am tolerated because they are kind. My boss and his boss have not fired me for many many years because they are considerate of the fact that it is difficult to get another job. Nowhere else in the world is such a useless employee tolerated so much. The degree of tolerance, the globally unique position I am in - you have to see it to believe it.

They scold me like hell. If you had been in my place, you may have beaten them up. They scold me but they don't fire me. That's kindness.

You have jock itch.

As a home remedy, I recommend applying turmeric, cinnamon, honey and crushed garlic cloves in affected areas for a month. You will be fine.

You seem to have dyslexia. You may fare better if you take up drawing. This has been proven in one movie.

Re: A Challenging Medical Puzzle

You seem to be educated beyond your intelligence, and, as a result, have now got a job that's actually way beyond your abilities.
Are you one of those reservations and quotas incumbents?
There are thousands of Government employees in our India who experience a fairly similar predicament.
Maybe your boss endures you because he fears that he might loose his job and also go to jail under the atrocity act .............

This could be your answer.

Coconuts fall from trees unexpectedly, suddenly and abruptly. It can cause serious and even fatal accidents.

So not just solving this mystery but also comprehending this valid complaint is a challenge.

Re: A Challenging Medical Puzzle

Symptoms are mere indicators.
The real problem is "the cause".

It's a neurological condition which is hard to diagnose because it may be an undiscovered disease. And this condition interferes with performance at job.

He (or maybe she) is just saying he is a chronic freeloader unable to think and wants to know the cause for it. My hypothesis is that it is due to the coconut falling on him.

Re: A Challenging Medical Puzzle

There are shortcomings on the part of doctors and questions have arisen about the authority which runs the system of medical care, whom the doctors are answerable to and also about the fraternity of doctors.

How doctors are trained and what are they instructed to do in certain situations...

Re: A Challenging Medical Puzzle

^^
So, you blame your shoddy performance on your job on the doctors not doing their job properly.
There is no medical puzzle to explain incompetence.
It is more on wrong choices. You should have joined JNU and you would have performed brilliantly as a sidekick of Arundhati Roy.

Re: A Challenging Medical Puzzle

Typical attitude of the mediocre.
Blame others for their mediocrity.
And then they use this blame technology to demand special reservations, quotas, concessions, grants etc.. to correct the INJUSTICE that they have been subjected to!
