Can anyone hear it???

There are times people hear tiny voices in their heads. It varies I was told by a friend, some are more annoying than others. At times these voices are mean and less encouraging and there when you are at your lowest. Personally I haven't heard them. All I hear is my stubborn voice telling myself every morning after opening my eyes to get up. If I get up with very minimal physical pain then I know I am in a much better position than others who can't. So I told my friend not to listen to these voices and ring me instead.I told her to ring me if Lifeline is busy as she was put on hold when she rang.

Pain comes in various forms. People get physical pain that can be very debilitating. Simple tasks that at times we take for granted become a struggle. With less support and services and side effects of medications, people become withdrawn, angry, insecure and less active. This results to depression, weight gain, more insecurities and becoming more withdrawn and isolated.A very vicious cylce.Its the emotional pain that at times we underestimate that I believe is far more debilitating to some.

I met another friend the other day who has the same condition. I asked her how she's been feeling. She looked confused and asked me if I want to know about her sores. I told her yes, I want to compare sores later but first I wanted to make sure first that you haven't gone nuts. She laughed and we both laughed.

I know what it feels like to feel down at times and nothing more reassuring than having someone ask you how you've been feeling..

  • Thank you sylvi. Yes, humour is the secret. I have'nt seen anyone died yet in my line of work because the person laughed so much. It is part of my distraction when girls come for their appointments.I manage a gynaecological department. For me, making girls at ease and distracted is vital as nobody really likes getting paps smear done.

    Though I tell them to give warning if a big sneeze or cough is coming as we don't want the gynaecologists wear the speculum really lol.

    I keep myself busy coz I figure if I am busy I won't have that time to dwell on something negative. I just feel that I have this duty. I say to my patiets, first I am your nurse and you might not like what I tell you but second, I am your friend. If we both come out from this consult getting along with each other, great.

It tells me that I have so much to live for. What I have is not very pleasant but it is not the worse other people have. Take
