One of my best friends is moving away in 2 weeks. I find it pretty crazy that it’s happening so soon. Even though I’m a little bummed, I’ll just suck it up and support her. 200 miles apart, pshhh. I can drive more than that.
I took your hand and told it many secrets today. I told it how I felt about you and how I thought it was cute how you scrunch my hair. You’d get jealous and try to sneak into our secret talk and try to ask me what I told it. I ended up telling you that “it is a secret just between the hand and me.”
It may be childish, but I do enjoy these small moments together. They’re the kind of moments that I’ll remember for a lifetime.
Okay so my life has been one emotional roller coaster on my journey growing up. But the one thing that it has helped me with is that it confirmed that I do want to stay in the health career field. For the past month I have encountered so many wonderful people through the hospital that I am at now and even though they know they’re not doing so well, or are expecting to die, most of them have the best and brightest attitudes I have ever seen. But for the past two weeks, I have heard about many patients’ lives and honestly some of them mad me sad. Sad to the point where I feel like I have to cry when I get home because it was just so much to even imagine. I have met people who have felt so much loss that they did not want to continue with their own life anymore and it was tough on those days. There were two major big blows that kept on punching me but one hit me the most. How terrible would it be to find your loved one on the floor, no longer breathing. When I heard that, it just sunk my heart down. But throughout that whole experience, I had to continue with what I had to do, which was give the best patient care possible. And I figured, if that person had no one else to tell their story to, then at least I could be one person to listen. I want to help not only physically but mentally as well. I can only imagine what it feels like to be waiting in the hospital trying to find out what is wrong with yourself by doing so many exams. Hopefully the exams that I perform can find out what the cause of their problem is, but I hope to ease their mind while they are in my department. I feel that is the least I could do. Even though I cannot tell them the results or show them the images that were taken, you’d be surprised how talking can just be a big help to them.
Well that’s my little spiel of how my life has been so far.
I like talking to strangers whether they be customers, patients, fellow students, or somebody just passing by asking for directions. It’s interesting to hear everybody’s story and to find out what you have in common with them.
