Monday morning is my „Smarties“ time.
I prepare my medication for the week. Not as sweet but due to my boxes at least colorful 😉
And while I did it this morning I have had one of those Christmas moments.
A time to reflect and be grateful.
Sure my life would be easier and better if I wouldn’t need this medication but as it appears I wouldn’t have a life without! So I’m happy to have them.
I know that there are a lot of people who demonize pharma and medication – I get that reaction very often since I work for a pharma company and belong to several Health Communities. Unfortunately they concentrate on side effects or the rotten apples that appear in every business.
But I also know that there are millions of people depending on our developments that share my opinion.
Finally I’m proud to be part of a group that spends their time on helping others. To make a life of pain, shame or harm better. To protect people against worse times.
Sure there will be some that take it as every job they have to do to feed the family but most of us think about „how to make a life better“.
Usually I write my posts in German but as this should go out to all my colleagues and any person working in the pharma industry all over the world I decided to try an English one.
Thanks to everybody making my life and the life of our patients better. Have a Merry Christmas, a good time with family and friends and a very successful New Year
