the sad truth

you know the sad truth about patients for discharge? it could be they’re out because they’re doing well or they’re out because they’re doing well, for NOW. it’s heartbreaking when you realize that one of your previous patient gets readmitted a month or two after their discharge. It’d be fine if it’s just for follow up procedures/visits, but when you see their SOs along the corridors, pharmacy, waiting areas for several days sitting at a corner on a daze and on the verge of crying, you know it could be more than just a follow up visit. :(

what if a guy in a hoodie comes up to you and hands you a giant book and gives you a sly smirk. when you start to read it, you realize it’s a book about your entire life. would you read it to the end?

My days are at minimum 12.5 hours. My breakfasts are almonds I throw in my mouth as I’m pacing the hall. My lunch comes at 4pm. My patients are sick and their families anxious and frustrated. I am mentally and physically fatigued. Not to mention I face the biggest learning curve of my entire life….

True story.

soo true



You know, a meaningful life does not guarantee a happy life and in a way that a happy life does not guarantee a meaningful life.

I wanted to cry, but i didn’t.

They said, as a nurse you are not allowed to cry in front of your patients cos you never what those tears of yours would signify for them. But you know, i have always hated that about nursing, but i understand.

But what happens then?

They say don’t surround yourself with negative people. Then, considering all these fortunately blessed with good outlooks avoid those pessimistic ones, then what would become out of them? Will they drown themselves of depression forever? never seeing a glimpse of hope cos those people who might be able to change their perspective turned out to be selfish brats who just wanted to save themselves - who avoided pessimism like its some sort of contagious disease? Yes, we shouldn’t rely on other people to save ourselves because we should do our own saving. But you know, we can’t do that all the time, we can’t do our own CPR when we’re unconscious and breathless sometimes we need others to do the saving. And that applies vice versa. As much as we favor optimism over pessimism, sometimes they also need those negative thoughts to keep them grounded to reality, to recognize their flaws and help them aim betterment.

do you ever feel like you’re just sort of 

there

like all your friends go out and do things and get into relationships and like people that like them back and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone

like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything

I don’t really mind extending a little more time of my 8 hour duty for charting, as long as I know that my patients are well and I already did what I needed to do.:)

Duty off :)
