What Should I Do?


I wake up to the sound of my ringing phone.
“Hello ma”
“Hello ” I reply back
Strange number.
“Who is speaking please?” I ask?

“I am so sorry to call you this early. I got your number from my mom who is one of your customers. My baby has cough and catarrh. It didn’t allow him to sleep well tonight. What medicine should I use for him?”…

And other calls flood in at different times of the day…

“Hello ma. What medicine can I take for breast pains? I stopped breastfeeding two day ago and my breasts are so painful”…

“Hello ma. Is it true that antibiotics dries blood? My baby was prescribed antibiotics and I am wondering if I should add a blood tonic”…

“Hello ma. What mulitviatmin do you recommend for my baby? She is not eating”…

I see a need. Can you perceive it too?

Mothers with kids less than 10 years old are my major callers. They need answers to lots of medicine-related issues.

I am here to help moms become medicine savvy. I am your Medicine Guide. Your amiable Aunty Pharmacist.

Yet as the number of calls increase, I face a dilema. The calls are becoming distracting and time-consuming. Yet I want to help. Solving problems is my passion.

What should I do? Should I stop answering the calls and focus on my Community Pharmacy business? After all, this brings in the money. The other one doesn’t.  It only fulfils my passion.
