‘I might be quadriplegic, but I’m your doctor’

My last thought when the car started rolling was: I can’t stop this now. (Supplied: Dinesh Palipana)
I had no concrete plan at this point, but knew that I wanted to get back to medicine one day.After some lengthy discussions with staff from my old medical school at Queensland’s Griffith University, I eventually decided to hop on a plane and get back to studying.It was a risk, and I was terrified.I had to figure out how to do a lot of things without my fingers. On the contrary, I’ve been honoured to be able to be a part of many patients’ journeys. I would’ve just gone elsewhere. Dr Palipana tells his story in his own words. My spinal cord had probably taken a hit.A good Samaritan, Chris Bailey, pulled over and held my bleeding head until an ambulance came. And I certainly never imagined practising medicine with quadriplegia.I was exactly halfway through medical school when my car aquaplaned on Brisbane’s Gateway Motorway.It was a dark night soaked with the smell of fresh rain. He is Queensland’s first quadriplegic doctor. There, we thought we’d find the safety of some family, and cost-effective support. It was a great moment filled with happiness, but an interesting time followed. Video: Dr Palipana has adapted how he works by using the parts of his hands that still have sensation. I only say this to show that it can be done, despite physical challenges.None of my patients have reacted badly to me. My family began its slow but sure spiral into falling apart. The road was slippery. I studied as much as I could, especially since I’d been away for five years. Worst of all, I couldn’t feel or move my legs. This was not only disappointing, but hurtful.Education is meant to be an expansive activity that extends the boundaries of human endeavour.There are doctors in Australia and the world who practice with a variety of challenges.

Dinesh Palipana says it felt like he was “driving his car on butter” when he lost control on the Gateway Motorway. I didn’t want them to see me in a completely different, vulnerable physical state. Family asked for money, then disappeared when we couldn’t give them any.Mum looked after me as best she could. Photo:
Gold Coast University Hospital medical intern Dinesh Palipana says it’s time to break down barriers for physically disabled medical students. So why then, did educators try to stop people with impairments at the gates?I was lucky enough to do a clerkship in radiology at Harvard University, where I posed the question about differently able medical students to senior staff.

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) enables these practitioners to work safely, with reasonable limitations on practice. I’m spending six months in the emergency department as a junior house officer. Everyone had filled their jobs.After six months of waiting, imagine the relief when the Gold Coast University Hospital called to offer me a position. Dr Palipana is a medical intern at the hospital after graduating from Griffith University in 2016. When medical student Dinesh Palipana suffered a severe spinal injury in a car crash, he was told his dream of becoming a doctor was over. I love the job, and not many days have felt like work.I was humbled to be nominated, with several of my colleagues, for intern of the year at our hospital in 2017. That was January 31, 2010.

Money became a problem.After convalescing at the hospital, I just wanted to hide for a while.I cared about how the world saw me. If I had to choose one favourite thing about being a doctor, it’d be the people — both patients and colleagues.As with the cannula, I’ve found ways to do many things. This is a small step for most doctors and nurses, but a giant step for me.After waking up at 4 or 5:00am, I was at the school or hospital until the last tram left every single day. (Supplied: Griffith University )
The last to be hiredAll of my classmates were offered jobs through the state’s central process, except for me.After medical assessments, letters and other mysterious processes over months, I was eventually told by telephone that I would not be starting work with my colleagues in 2017.I wouldn’t have really minded if they said that I would not be getting a job in Queensland at the first instance. I hadn’t been in my home country for almost 20 years. Photo:

Dinesh Palipana was one of the highest achieving students at the Griffith University Medical School. My parents eventually split up. Not only did I have to adapt to significant changes in my body, but everything else that transformed around me. One of my biggest triumphs was learning to insert an intravenous cannula, albeit with a little bit of help. I always hated being vulnerable.So, mum and I went to Sri Lanka. In a serendipitous turn of events, in the ambulance was a doctor named Stephen Rashford who had actually given me a lecture a short while before the accident. Their response was almost uniformly a concerned, “if you can make the merit, then there is no place to discriminate physically”.That’s all I’ve ever wanted — to be considered on merit, and not physical attributes. (Supplied: Griffith University)
Are we missing out on great doctors?I don’t regret any of my experiences, but hope that they can make things easier for those who follow. I tried to open the door. (Supplied)
The recovery I spent more than seven months at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. I slept on Saturdays and started again on Sunday.After nearly two years of this, I successfully graduated from medical school. My favourite white T-shirt was soaked in blood. My fingers weren’t working.The gravity of what happened dawned on me. (ABC News)
How does he do it?I am over one year into work now. I’ve learned ways to hold my stethoscope, and feel someone’s abdomen with the part of my hand that has sensation. (Supplied: Griffith University)
I didn’t grow up wanting to be a doctor. Shortly after I came back to medical school, the Medical Deans of Australia and New Zealand (MDANZ) created a policy document that potentially closes the door to medical students with a wide range of challenges in the auditory, sensory, motor and psychological domains. Photo:
Dr Dinesh Palipana says he is “living his dream” and the best part of being a doctor is the people — patients and colleagues. We were wrong. But as functional as I feel, I won’t be performing neurosurgery anytime soon. That’s completely fine.The most frustrating thing is probably poking at something on a high shelf to get it down. I’ll just have fun like a rollercoaster.When my Nissan X-Trail eventually stopped rolling, I looked around in shock. Now he’s Queensland’s first quadriplegic doctor, working at one of the state’s busiest hospitals. The car was destroyed. By then however, it was too late to go anywhere else for 2017.

Kacey Musgraves – Space Cowboy lyrics

[Verse 1]
You look out the window
While I look at you
Sayin’ I don’t know
Would be like saying that the sky ain’t blue
And boots weren’t made for sitting by the door
Since you don’t wanna stay anymore
[Chorus]
You can have your space, cowboy
I ain’t gonna fence you in
Go on ride away, in your Silverado
Guess I’ll see you ’round again
I know my place, and it ain’t with you
Sunsets fade, and love does too
Yeah, we had our day in the sun
When a horse wants to run, there ain’t no sense in closing the gate
You can have your space, cowboy
[Verse 2]
After the gold rush, there ain’t no reason to stay
Shoulda learned from the movies that good guys don’t run away
But roads weren’t made to not go down
There ain’t room for both of us in this town
[Chorus]
So you can have your space, cowboy
I ain’t gonna fence you in
Go on ride away, in your Silverado
I’ll see you around again
‘Cause I know my place, and it ain’t with you
Sunsets fade, and love does too
We had our day in the sun
When a horse wants to run, ain’t no sense in closing the gate
So you can have your space
[Instrumental]
[Chorus]
You can have your space, cowboy
I ain’t gonna fence you in
Go on ride away, in your Silverado
I’ll see you around again
‘Cause I know my place, and it ain’t with you
Sunsets fade, and love does too
Oh, we had our day in the sun
When a horse wants to run, ain’t no sense in closing the gate
You can have your space
Yeah, you can have your space
You can have your space
Cowboy

Kacey Musgraves – Butterflies lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was just coastin’
Never really goin anywhere
Caught up in a web I was gettin kinda used to stayin’ there
And out of the blue
I fell for you
[Chorus]
Now you’re lifting me up, instead of holding me down
Stealing my heart instead of stealing my crown
Untangled all the strings round my wings that were tied
I didn’t know him and I didn’t know me
Cloud nine was always out of reach
Now I remember what it feels like to fly
You give me butterflies
[Verse 2]
Kiss full of color makes me wonder where you’ve always been
I was hiding in doubt till you brought me out of my chrysalis
And I came out new
All because of you
[Chorus]
Now you’re lifting me up instead of holding me down
Stealing my heart instead of stealing my crown
Untangled all the strings round my wings that were tied
I didn’t know him and I didn’t know me
Cloud nine was always out of reach
Now I remember what it feels like to fly
You give me butterflies, yeah
You give me butterflies
[Instrumental]
[Bridge]
Now you’re lifting me up instead of holding me down
You’re taking my hand instead of taking my crown
Untangled all the strings round my wings that were tied
[Chorus]
I didn’t know him and I didn’t know me
Cloud nine was always out of reach
Now I remember what it feels like to fly
You give me butterflies
You give me butterflies
Ooooooh, ooooh, mhm

Mariah Carey – Hawaiian Car Ride Medley Lyrics

Purple taking me higher
I’m lifted and I like it
Boy, you got me inspired
Baby, come and get it
If you’re really feeling me
Cause it’s my night
No stress, no fights
I’m leaving it all behind
No tears, no time to cry
Just making the most of life
[Shake It Off]
Everybody just, everybody just bounce, bounce
Everybody just, everybody just bounce, bounce
I gotta shake it off
‘Cause the loving ain’t the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I’m here to stay
I gotta shake, shake it off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake it off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who appreciates all the love I give
Boy, I gotta shake, shake it off
Gotta do what’s best for me
Baby, and that means I gotta shake you off
[Loverboy]
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna
I need a, I need a, I need a, I need a
I lover, lover, I lover, lover
A lover, a lover, a lover, a loverboy for me
I got myself a lover who knows what I like
When he invites me over I come every time
And when my sugar daddy takes me for a ride
Whatever way we go it’s delirium time
He’s all mine
And his loving gets me high
Like a taste of ecstasy
All I need is him to be my loverboy
Loverboy, come on and love me
Give me more, touch me and touch me
I enjoy the way you rock me all night long
Loverboy, come on and take me
Only you know how to make me
(You know how to make me)
Shudder with anticipation all night long Got you all fired up with your Napoleon complex
Seeing right through you like you’re bathing in Windex
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Boy, why you so obsessed with me? [I Know What You Want]
Baby, if you give it to me, I’ll give it to you
I know what you want, you know I got it
Baby, if you give it to me, I’ll give it to you
As long as you want, you know I got it
(Baby, if you give it to me, I’ll give it to you)
(I know what you want, you know I got it)
(Baby, if you give it to me, I’ll give it to you)
(As long as you want, you know I got it)
Yes you know I’ll die for you
And ya know I’ll ride with you
I will always try with you
And give ya my love and cry with you
I will climb a mountain high aha
Until I was up to touch the sky
So baby come and get more close to me
This is where your love is supposed to be
[Breakdown]
Break, breakdown, steady breaking me on down
Break, breakdown, steady breaking me on down
Break, breakdown, steady breaking me on down
Break, breakdown, steady breaking me on down
You called yesterday
To basically say
That you care for me but
That you’re just not in love
Immediately I pretended to be feeling similarly
And led you to believe I was OK
To just walk away from the one thing
That’s unyielding and sacred to me
Well, I guess I’m trying to be nonchalant about it
And I’m going to extremes to prove I’m fine without you
But in reality I’m slowly losing my mind
Underneath the guise of smile, gradually I’m dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
Because I don’t want to reveal the fact that I’m suffering
So I wear my disguise ’till I go home at night
Then turn down all the lights and then I breakdown and cry
[Obsessed]
And I was like
“Why are you so obsessed with me?”
Why you so obsessed with me? [It’s Like That]
I came to have a party
Open off the Bacardi
Feeling so hot tamale
Boy, I know you watching me
So what’s it going to be? Boy, I wanna know
Lying that you’re sexing me, when everybody knows
It’s clear that you’re upset with me
Finally found a girl that you couldn’t impress
Last man on the earth still couldn’t get this
So oh, oh, oh, oh, so oh, oh, oh, oh, so oh, oh, oh, oh…
All up in the blogs saying we met at the bar
When I don’t even know who you are
Saying we up in your house, saying I’m up in your car
But you in LA, and I’m out at Jermaine’s
I’m up in the A, you so so lame
And no one here even mentions your name
It must be the weed, it must be the E
Cause you be popping, heard you get it popping
Why you so obsessed with me? Boy, I wanna know
Lying that you’re sexing me, when everybody knows
It’s clear that you’re upset with me
Finally found a girl that you couldn’t impress
Last man on the earth still couldn’t get this
You’re delusional, you’re delusional
Boy, you’re losing your mind
It’s confusing, yo, you’re confused, you know
Why you wasting your time?

Alec Benjamin – Saving sawyer Lyrics

She said, “We’re too young
And we’re too different people.”
She said, “I’ll bite my tongue, lock my lips, and paint my door
‘Cause your love is lethal.”
Oh, I want to love this girl
Spend prom night waiting in her foyer
I’m not trying to save the world
Just saving Sawyer
You’re not wrong
And I know that trusting me takes long
And that you’re worth it, worth it
I’ve wrote this song
In hopes that she’s not moving on
‘Cause I wasn’t perfect, perfect
Oh, I want to love this girl
Spend prom night waiting in her foyer
I’m not trying to save the world
Just saving…
I’m not trying to save the world
Just trying to put it back together again
Just trying to put it back together again
Just trying to put it back together again, for her
Just put it back together again
Put it back together again
Just trying to put it back together again
Just trying to put it back together again, for her
Just put it back together again
Oh, I want to love this girl
Spend my life waiting in her foyer
I’m not trying to save the world
Just saving Sawyer

Nas – Be a Nigger Too (Remix) Lyrics

I be on a state bus in shackles if my .8 bust
Cause y’all some tellers, opposite of bankers
I’m the shit for ages, my clique still real QB gangsters
Clique still movin’ like Freemasons, so if I’m on the flow
From the law, there’s lodges all across the nation
Nas is bred for the plan
To hold the Grand Dragon’s head in my hand
Come and get me, here I am
[Hook: Dante Hawkins (Nas)]
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas (So I salute my “Niggas!”)
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas (So I salute my “Niggas!”) We all African, okay, some Africans don’t like us, no way! Journalists see I’m rich
With this N-word jargon I’m just starting, bitch! Niggas
There’s verbal books published by niggas, produced by niggas
Genuine niggas, so I salute my niggas
Not mad cause Eminem said nigga, cause he my nigga
Wigga, cracker, friend, we all black within, okay? [Intro]
Turn your radios up
The real niggas are back on the radio
[Hook: Dante Hawkins (Nas)]
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas (So I salute my “Niggas!”)
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas (So I salute)
[Verse 1: Nas]
Uh, no slackin’, no beggin’, no askin’, no fastin’
No disrespect to Islam, no Imam or Pastor
No answers to questions the media’s askin’
Why we fight each other in public in front of these arrogant fascists? A killng happened in Johannesbur yesterday
Slain artist named Lucky Dube, hijacked
Some say N-double A-C-P, keep us sidetracked
But I don’t buy that, I buy Aston Martins
Faster cars than NAS-a-CARs and, sparkin while ridin
Critics, eat a dick! They love it; puttin old niggas verse the youngest
Most of our elders failed us, how could they judge us? [Hook: Dante Hawkins (Nas)]
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas (So I salute my “Niggas!”)
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas
This is for my niggas, niggas, niggas (So I salute)
[Verse 2: Nas]
Wake up in the morning, shake my third leg in the toilet
Uzi on the nightstand, I’m the man you go to war with
Not the man you go to war against, patience, I’ll get you
If that means I can’t sleep a whole year, I’mma get you
I’m official, not a-tisket or a-tasket
I’ll put you in the casket, with the biscuit or the ratchet
They smoke hibiscus, they plants or trees, advanc-ed weed
Don’t forsake us, you all are fake bloods like move make-up
I flow tighter as Tootie’s braces, who he hatin us?

Nas – Gangsta Rap (Remix) Lyrics

Think you tough, huh? I’m here to murder the devil
I survive through the struggle and perils, I’m thorough (“Nas!”)
Who am I? How you feel now?” You niggas ain’t shit! Because police always wanna harass me!”
[Interlude: Sample Collage]
“This is once again proof that no routine police stop is actually routine. I give a fuck who you bidded with, or where you cop coke
The bitch you with or the reason you not broke (“Rappers!”)
I don’t count your money, don’t want none of your smoke
I don’t feel your pain, I ain’t none of your folk
(“Niggas!”)It’s easy to put a gun in your throat
But I ain’t on that, trying to sip Coladas where it’s warm at
Cognac, crushed ice, y’all know how it is
Elijah said a women half your age plus seven years
Is a plus way to live, this is for the blunted
For the niggas who keep it one hundred
Who hunted by DAs and judges (“Green Lantern!”)
This is for the drunkards, stuck in the ghetto, for winos
And old ladies with high sugar levels
Who am I? I’m here to murder the devil
I survive through the struggle and perils, I’m thorough
[Hook: Nas (Curtis Mayfield)]
(“Niggas!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
(“Rappers!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
(“Niggas!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
(“Rappers!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
[Outro: MC Ren Sample]
“Why do I call myself a nigga, you ask me? We saw that last week, of course, in Brooklyn, with the tragedy over there, and then again last night, another police shooting.”
“Here’s what they think about you!”
“I hate motherfuckers like you. I could blow your head off with the Smith and Wesson and you couldn’t do shit! [Hook: Nas (Curtis Mayfield)]
(“Niggas!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
(“Rappers!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
(“Niggas!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
(“Rappers!”) If they call you a nigga
Ain’t nothin’ to it, tell ’em Nas made you do it
[Verse 1: Nas]
Ugh, felonious, Thelonious Monk melodic
Monster Cody OG, hard as the Ramparts police
Warring like the Answars and Sunni
I never pull my pants up, sagging my Gucci, and what?

Curren$y – Billy Ocean Lyrics

[Intro: Curren$y]
Yeah
Everybody should have their joints lit
Yeah
Roll another one up while I’m smoking
Keep it going
Money and the power and some more shit
Yeah
Yeah
[Hook: Curren$y]
Roll another one up while I’m smoking
Keep it going
Money and the power and some more shit
We staying in motion
Never will I get into no ho shit
I’m not for it
Stay golden, frozen, floatin’
Mother fuckin’ Billy Ocean
[Verse 1: Curren$y]
You can act like you don’t know
Spitta and Cardo
Bullet proof German coupe car doors close
Take photos
Car shows in my lo-lows
My sixty-four ride slow bumping Snoop Dogg
Blowing dolo
Its like a fog machine done went off in my car yo
Pull up after all the bars close
To the civilians
Underground casinos for the real ones
You would suffocate in the building
Last one tried to infiltrate I think they
I’d rather not say
Money on the plate like I never ate
Not a crumb finna go to waste
Chevy crates tear up the interstate where I stay
Muscle cars do the figure eights where I play
Live from New Orleans, rolling weed out the Bay
RIP Nate Dogg, smoke weed everyday
Living out what I say
On these albums and tapes
[Hook: Curren$y]
Roll another one up while I’m smoking
Keep it going
Money and the power and some more shit
We staying in motion
Never will I get into no ho shit
I’m not for it
Stay golden, frozen, floatin’
Mother fuckin’ Billy Ocean
[Bridge: Curren$y]
Yeah
Act like you don’t know
Spitta and Cardo
Money and power and some more shit
We staying in motion
Never will I get into no ho shit
I’m not for it
Stay golden, frozen, floating
Nigga
Billy Ocean
[Verse 2: Curren$y]
Nigga whatchu know
That original dope flow
Stained glass cathedral ceilings and marble floors
Hustle hard to afford, I work for it
Sports cars I drive slow, Imma show off
Sucka bring his ho, his ho tossed
He cried alone in his car as he drove off
High up as I float on
They gon’ have to call the fuckin’ coast guard
Shit
[Hook: Curren$y]
Roll another one up while I’m smoking
Keep it going
Money and the power and some more shit
We staying in motion
Never will I get into no ho shit
I’m not for it
Stay golden, frozen, floatin’
Mother fuckin’ Billy Ocean
[Outro: Curren$y]
Yeah never will I get into no ho shit
Nope, I’m not for it
Spitta and Cardo
Money and the power and some more shit
We stay in motion
Never will I get into no ho shit
I’m not for it
Stay golden, frozen, floating
Nigga
Billy Ocean
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Not for it
