PTSD  LINGERS IN RECOVERY OF  DR. CARTER

By  Ewalt Ainsworth                                        01 20 2014

Almost every hour on the hour the Newark sibling of Dr Leslie Carter has been calling Guyana trying to reassure him that his recovery will be assured amidst lingering fears finding a teachable moment with his assailants if and when caught.  On the night of  Wednesday January 15, 2014,  he was attacked by two bandits in a failed attempt to rob him at knife point.

Dr. Carter is not seeking revenge even though the psychological hurt is greater than the multiplicity of wounds to both hands and abdomen.  The good doctor is retired has no plans to quit but will seek alternative ways to dispense medicine of forgiveness, wholesomeness, graciousness and togetherness.

Dr. Carter has been a Regional doctor in his community for more than 25 years and has touched every family within a ten mile radius of his medical practice at Non Pariel on the East Coast of Demerara.

Dr Carter has an open door policy and is fully integrated in the community.  Dem is born PNC people from  Brush Dam but recently operatives from the  mega hospitals in Georgetown have been diversifying and have been using different marketing ploys to displace Dr Carter….. a fixture in the community.  There is a specialized hospital in Annandale for sure and a few other bottom-house arrangements in the estate enclaves.

The sister of Dr. Carter, here in Newark, said that he will return to work in the community with a reduced workload and hours as soon as he is released.  But the young lady expressed her concern for post traumatic stress disorder as he plots a strategy to continue his clinics and practice.

Initially he wants to talk with his attackers and pontificate the sacredness of life and good neighborliness as a contract to well being and good living.
Dr Carter is also known as the pro-bono doctor and would take eggs and genip and cassava bread as payment.  He is not disturbed but this incident has given him cause for pause and he  has absolutely no intention to arm himself.  His good deeds will see him thru this all.  ASOMELYKAM.
