BAKIT NGA BA MASARAP MAGMAHAL ANG MGA NURSES?

Bakit nga ba mas OK magmahal ng Nurse? Well, hindi ko ginagawa ang post na ito dahil sa isang Nurse ako or biased ako sa profession ko, it’s just that masasabi kong angat lang talaga kami sa iba pagdating sa pag-aalaga at pag-aaruga. Kanina, I enumerated 105 reasons na lahat ay talaga namang totoo. Paniguradong sasang-ayon sa akin ang mga ibang Nurse pati na yung mga Nursing student diyan. Siguro isa na sa mga masasabi kong pinaka-obvious na reason ay ang pagiging therapeutic sa oras na kailangan ito ng pagkakataon o ng sitwasyon. We are trained to be therapeutic communicators. Hangga’t maaari, kaya namin kayong kausapin ng malumanay at ng nasa tono. And isa pa, may something talaga sa 'touch', alam niyo ‘yun na Nurses lang ang nakakapagbigay. Hawak at dampi ng kamay na siguradong gagaling ka. Yung para bang may magic ang kamay mo. Nung nasa ER pa ako, nasabihan ako ng isang pasyente, 'Para sa isang lalakeng Nurse, ang gaan ng kamay mo' habang tinuturukan ko siya ng ineksyon sa kanan niyang balikat. Napangiti na lang ako at sinabing, 'Salamat po'. Nung student naman ako, naalala ko ang matandang lalakeng naging pasyente ko, na ang nagbabantay sa kanya ay ang kanyang asawa. Nung time na na-discharge na sila, niyakap nila ako pareho. 'Iho, dahil sa'yo gumaling ang asawa ko', sabi nung matandang babae habang may sinilid sa bulsa ko.

Hinugot ko sa bulsa ko ang sinilid ng matandang babae, nakita kong dalawang bente pesos ito. Sabi niya, 'Pasensya na, 'yan lang ang pera ko'. Sa puntong ‘yun, nangilid ang mga luha sa mga mata ko. Sabi ko, 'Nako Nay, 'wag na po. OK na po 'yun'. Sabi nung asawa niyang lalake, 'Tanggapin mo, pasasalamat namin 'yan sa'yo'. At nung umalis sila ng kwarto, tuluyan na akong umiyak. Paglabas ko ng silid, nakita ako ng mga kaklase ko, 'Rain, bakit ka umiiyak?' Sabi ko na lang, 'Wala lang 'to'. Alam niyo bang itinago ko ang kuwarenta pesos na ‘yun at hindi ko pinambili ng kahit na ano? Ang sarap nung ganung pakiramdam na kahit ibang tao maliban sa pamilya mo, natulungan mo. Isang bagay na kaya naming gawing mga Nurses. Kahit hindi namin kayo kaaano-ano, sigurado kaming kaya namin kayong mahalin katulad ng pagmamahal na binibigay namin sa mga pamilya namin. Siguro, isa sa mga natutunan din namin ay ang pakikinig. Sabi nga, 'Tell me more'. Sa isang may problema, matuto kang makinig. Sa isang relasyon, matuto kang makinig. Isang bagay na alam kong kaming mga Nurses ay magaling. Marunong sumunod, pero alam kung kailan dapat masunod. Alam kong konti lang ito sa mga masasabi kong katangian namin, pero ganun pa man, makakasiguro kayong 100% ang pagmamahal namin. Kung pasyente nga namin pinaglilingkuran namin ng buong-buo, kayo pa kayang aalayan namin ng parte ng aming puso?

That moment when you judge someone way too quickly and harshly and upon meeting them they are an amazing person.

MY FIVE STAGES OF GRIEVING (By Elizabeth Kubler-Ross).

Tapos na ako sa Denial stage, nung aminin ko sa sarili kong, oo, hindi siya kundi ikaw ang gusto ko, na ikaw ang tinitibok ng puso ko. Tapos na rin ako sa Anger stage, nung nagalit ako sa sarili ko at sa mga taong nakapaligid sa akin at sa’yo. Tapos na rin ako sa Bargaining stage nung kausapin ko ang Diyos para hilinging ibigay ka sa akin at hindi sa iba kahit ano pa man ang maging kapalit. Ngayon, nasa Depression stage ako, malungkot, pakiramdam ko nag-iisa ako, walang karamay, walang kakampi. Hindi alam ang gagawin, hindi alam ang daan na tatahakin. Nag-iisip ng mga pwedeng gawin, nag-iisip ng mga dapat at tamang gawin. Kailangan kita, pero bakit kahit anong gawin ko, wala ka?

Acceptance stage, ‘yan ang pinakahuli. Mamaya, bukas, sa isang araw, sa isang linggo, kung kailan, ‘di ko ‘yan masasabi. Ito ang pinakadulo, ito ang katapusan. Mapapanatag na ba ako o patuloy pa ring maguguluhan? Simple lang naman ang kailangan kong gawin eh, ang matanggap kong andyan ka lang naghihintay sa akin o ang katotohanang hindi ka para sa akin.

105 REASONS WHY EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE A NURSE.

  1. Nurses are regularly voted the most trusting of professions – and for good reason.

Naisip ko lang, ako pala yung palaging nagmamakaawang mahalin ako. Ako yung palaging nangangarap na sana dumating yung panahon na mamahalin niya rin ako. Ako yung palaging nag-aasam na sana dumating yung araw na mapapasakanya ako. Ako yung nagmamahal, pero hindi naman minamahal pabalik.

Sa totoo lang, hinihintay ko yung panahon na ako naman yung pipiliin, na ako naman yung mamahalin. Yung ako ang papangarapin, yung ako ang aasamin. At higit sa lahat, yung siya muna ang magmamahal sa akin bago ko siya mahalin pabalik.

Landslide - Glee Version (Holly Holiday, Santana Lopez & Brittany Pierce)

“Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’, ‘cause I’ve built my life around you.” 

[TMI Sunday]

— I had 4 girlfriends and only 1 the-other-way-around, if you know what I mean. 

— 1st gf (1st year student that time) and I (Grade 6 student that time), we were caught by my class adviser kissing (‘cause it’s our monthsary that day) on the stairs.

— I was suspended for 1 day for saying bad words when I was in Grade 5.


“Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’, ‘cause I’ve built my life around you.” — Landslide
“I’m angry because I have all of these feelings, feelings for you, that I’m afraid of dealing with, because I’m afraid of dealing with the consequences.” — Santana
“I want to be with you. But I’m afraid of the talks and the looks, I mean you know what happened to Kurt at this school.” — Santana
“I’m so afraid of what everyone will say behind my back. Still, I have to accept that I love you. I love you and I don’t want to be with Sam or Finn or any of those other guys. I just want you. Please say you love me back. Please.” — Santana

Santana Lopez. Glee’s character na alam nating, bitch, strong personality, stand-out, outspoken etc. This is Santana’s look of love. I can feel her, I can totally relate to her, not because pareho kami ng personality pero dahil sa pareho kami ng pinagdadaanan. Look at those eyes habang pinagmamasdan niya si Brittany. The look of someone asking for love. The look that says, ‘I just want to love and be loved in return’. Tingin na nagsasabing, 'Andito lang ako, kailangan mo lang imulat ang mga mata mo'.

do-it-kid:

Willie Revillame said, “Lea Salonga… Ano ba ang ginawa nyo para sa mga Pilipino?” This man doesn’t know what he’s talking about. 

He also said, “Aiza Seguerra, maliit ka pa lang, nagta-trabaho ka na.”

“Agot Isidro, wala ka namang anak…”

“Bianca Gonzales… may natulungan na ba kayo?”

Willie is on a downward spiral and now he’s talking about personal issues. That most hurtful thing, I guess that he said was the one for Agot Isidro because it is very frustrating not to have a baby even if they want to, and whatever Willie said was uncalled for. 

Again, this man, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. S.R.S.L.Y.
