Can you turn your journal into a book?

 

“The book is a collection of short stories, and even though it is said that the medical staff has gallows humor, the stories will not regale a reader with the horrors of pain, illness or suffering. On the contrary, by making light of an otherwise dangerous situation, I hope they will help to relieve stress and get through difficult situations.”

Eugen Schlosser, physiotherapist, SLK-Kliniken Heilbronn GmbH

How you become a physiotherapist?

ES: I was always interested in health and science of non-surgical procedures to work with the human body to lessen pain, improve movement or restore functionality to improve health and ultimately the quality of life. I took a State Diploma Course in physiotherapy and graduated with honors. I love my job and I am proud of being able to help people to overcome their physical problems caused by disease, injury, illness or aging.

Ethnic German, Eugene was born and grew up in Kazakhstan. He and his family returned from Central Asia to their homeland in the 90th, when thousands of Germans in accordance with the “law of return” exercised their legal right to emigrate to Germany.

Why did you decide to write a book?

ES: 2017 marks my 20th year in the hospital. I have been journaling for all these years – recording anecdotes and my observations,  stories my patients told me, or simply writing down what happens during the day. The book is a collection of short stories, and even though it is said that the medical staff has gallows humor, the stories will not regale a reader with the horrors of pain, illness or suffering. On the contrary, by making light of an otherwise dangerous situation, I hope they will help to relieve stress and get through difficult situations.
