Not everyone can be a NURSE

Thanks to all the nurses who take care of my patients and every other patient. I may be a doctor, but you are the ones who deliver the care. You give the medications and hang the IV fluids. You wash the patients and turn them. You check their vitals and listen for bowel sounds. You walk with them. You talk with them. You fulfill their needs. And you provide comfort to them and their families.

You have seemingly limitless patience and endurance. You have heightened senses, for when you tell me you smell C. diff, I believe you. Your nose has probably smelled enough stool for 37 lifetimes.

Even if you work 3 or 4 days a week, and there are jokes are aplenty of how easy that must be, I know the shifts are anything but. You are constantly running around attending to patients and answering bells and whistles. Listening to patients. Taking orders from doctors. Getting yelled at by patients. Getting yelled at by doctors. And there are the days when there’s no time to eat, no time to drink, and surely, no time to pee.

And let’s not forget about all the charting. And the policies. And the limitations. And the regulations. And the frustration at not being able to do what you want for the patient, what is right for the patient.

The work can be vastly rewarding, but it can break you. The sickness, the death, the stress, the mistakes, the berating, and the insult when someone refers to you as “just a nurse.”

Do they not realize that when physicians are nothing more than baby interns learning to crawl, they rely on nurses for guidance? For education? For support? Or that when the resident is an attending, that the nurse can be a confidant? No, maybe they don’t realize that. They don’t know how many times a nurse catches a potentially lethal mistake from a doctor, because it’s all behind the scenes. As are the sacrifices a nurse makes to take care of a patient, a total stranger.

No, you’re not just a nurse, because not everyone can be a nurse.

I know I can’t. So thank you. Happy Nurses Week.

Thank you Lord

I must say, this is the best accomplishment I have. I have something I can call my own. I'm just very proud of it. 

Of course thank you so much to my Mom for the support. Without her this is impossible to accomplish.

And above all thank you Lord. 

Pag mahal ka...

Sabi nila pag mahal ka...babalikan ka. 

Sabi naman ng iba, pag mahal ka talaga...iiwan ka ba niya?

Hirap e explain di ba?

Di lang kasi sapat ang pag-ibig. Minsan kailangan nyong maghiwalay para matuto. Para mag grow bilang isang tao.

Sa bandang huli at naabot nyo na ang kanya-kanya nyong mga pangarap, pagtatagpuin parin kayo ng tadhana kong talagang para kayo sa isat isa.

Diyan masusubukan ang tibay ng inyong pagmamahalan. Iba't ibang tao ang inyong makakasalamuha. Iba't ibang pagsubok ang inyong mararanasan.

Pero sabi nga nila kahit ano pa yan, kung talagang para kayo sa isa't isa... DESTINY WILL FIND ITS WAY. 

Naniniwala ba kayo na BAYANI si dating PANGULONG FERDINAND MARCOS?

Basahin mo ang Confessions of an Economic Hitman para maintindfhan mo kung pano kinokontrol ng mga finance giants (imf/world bank/US corporations) ang isang third world country na mayaman sa natural resources. Ganyan na ganyan ang ginawa kay Marcos. Pero hindi cia pumayag sa kundisyon ng mga financial institutions na to kaya pinagtulungan ciang ibagsak. Ginawang puppet si cory aquino para maipatupad nila mga kondisyones nila sa mga proyektong naipatayo dahil sa pautang nila. Yun ang naging dahilan kaya d naibalik ang loan at lalong lumubo dahil sa inflation. Marcos was a visionary. He has the VISION that goes against corporatocracy and oligarchy. Yan ang dahilan kaya cia pinagtulung tulungang ibagsak.
Pag d mo gets yan, magresearch ka.

Ganito yan.. Umutang si Makoy at nagpagawa cia ng mga infrastructures. Nakita ng mga loan sharks (finance giants) na maibabalik sa kanila ung loan pero unti lang kikitahin nila tapos wala pa silang control sa ekonomiya ng bansa. So gumawa sila ng iba pang kondisyones para magpautang ulit. Kailangan sila ang pipili ng developer. Kailangang control nila ang intrastructure. Kailangang private at subsidized lang ng gobyerno. Pero ayaw ni Makoy yan dahil alam nia ang implikasyon ng ganung kasunduan.. Hindi makikinabang ang bansa sa kikitahin. Pero dahil hindi nila matalo sa legal process about international funding si Makoy (lawyer eh.. MATALINO at alam nia ang batas), kailangang mapatalsik cia sa power ng mga loan sharks (IMF/world bank/US based companies) na to para makuha nila gusto nila kapalit ng uutangin sa kanila. Pinagsama sama nila ang mga “power/money greed” na kalaban ni Makoy para gawan cia ng conspiracies at sirain ang pamamalakad nia. It is corporatocracy / olygarchy versus Marcos Governance. Una, umatake sila through destabilization - bomba dito, bomba dyan. Kumonista dito, ralyista dyan. Iresponsableng journalism dito (mga bayaran) at propaganda dyan. Ung mga nagorganize ng mga rally, pinagsasalvage mga leader at members nito para maibato ang kasalanan kay Makoy (gandang plano diba?? Effective para sa mga madaling mabrainwash). Naideklara ang Martial Law para labanan ang kaguluhang inumpisahan ng mga kalaban nia pero shempre, may mga bayarang militar na pinagaabuso ang kapangyarihan nila - dahil dyan, kasalanan na naman ni Makoy (propaganda eh) Galing ng mga atake diba?

Si Makoy ay makabansa at pinaka-ayaw nia na nagagamit ang mga kababayan nia laban sa kanya..

Dumating ang EDSA Revolt. It was bloodless and peaceful despite Marcos having enough military force to put up a good fight. Pero makatao cia at mahal nia kababayan nia (pro or against him) kaya bumaba cia sa pwesto ng di lumaban sa dahas. Ayaw niang maging collateral damage ang mga mamamayan sa pinaglalaban ng mga galit sa kanya. Ibang iba to sa na ginagawa ng mga diktador (they fight with teeth. Usually ends up to a bloody event) sa ibang bansa pag nagkaka civil war sa kanila.

So, panalo sila. Cory became president and as a puppet, kailangan niang ibalik ang favor and dahil dyan, she followed what the loan sharks asked her to do in exchange of helping her oust Marcos para makuha nia posisyon nia.

Pinagsasara mga naipundar ni Marcos (ex Bataan Nuclear Plant), pinagbebenta, ginawang private. Eh putcha, pano ka makakabayad sa utang nian kung wala ka namang kikitahin (dahil mga loan sharks at oligarchs ang nagmamanage na sa kanila). At dahil d na nakabayad, nagiinteres na. Idagdag mo pa ang INFLATION kaya lalong lumubo. Tiba tiba mga loan sharks at private companies. Panalo sila. Talo ang mga mamamayan.
D pa sila natapos. Para maging malinis ang ginawa nila, binato pa ng binato si marcos. Binaliktad na cia ngaun sa mga utang. Naglabas na sila ng mga fabricated documents against him. Sinabihan na ciang magnanakaw at mangungupit. Syempre, mababa na morale ng mga tao dahil sa kahirapan dulot ng destabilzation at loan debts, kailangan nila ng mableblame. Oh di si Marcos na lang (wala na, nabrainwash na).

Umabot sa puntong kinasuhan at nilitis ang mga Marcoses sa international courts - ACQUITTED of all charges. Why??? Kasi nga they have legal and valid documents to prove their innocence against the cases filed against them.

Sabi, andami daw nabawi sa mga Marcos. Nabawi ba or ninakaw?? Sige, nabawi na lang (para naman tumaas morale ng mga mapagbintang), pero asan na. Nakinabang na ba mga tao?? Ahhhh ehhhhh hindi po ehhh!! Either wala tlagang nabawi or napunta na sa mga totoong magnanakaw sa mga sumunod na adminstrasyon. Wow!! Win-win!! May naibulsa na sila, nagmukha pang masama si Marcos. Panalong panalo!

Pero ang mga mamamayan ngaun (majority) eh naghihirap. Utang ng utang, wala namang naipupundar. May mga projects (short-terms and shady ones) pero pili ang mga nakikinabang. Pagsamasamahin man mga naging proyekto nila in 27 years after Marcos, d pa nila makalahati compared sa mga projects and accomplishments nia in 20 years.

So, please. Tama na ang pagbubulag-bulagan at tama na ang pagbibintang.. Si Marcos lang ang nagisip ng long-term projects na ung iba (hindi pa napapalitan ang pangalan at naibebenta) eh kinamkam na rin to discredit him. 
Gising!!

Salamat sa pagbabasa.

What killed the frog?

Put a frog in a vessel of water and start heating the water.

As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.

The frog keeps on adjusting with increase in temperature...

Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog is not able to adjust anymore...

At that point the frog decides to jump out...

The frog tries to jump but is unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature...

Very soon the frog dies.

What killed the frog?

Many of us would say the boiling water...

But the truth is what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when it had to jump out.

We all need to adjust with people and situations, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust and when we need to confront/face.

There are times when we need to face the situation and take the appropriate action...

If we allow people to exploit us physically, mentally, emotionally or financially, they will continue to do so...

We have to decide when to jump.

Let us jump while we still have the strength.

Think on it.

I love this message every time I read.
