My Work days !
The joy when my patient takes the fist step after weeks of relentless training makes me so proud like watching a baby walk. There are days when I just want to cry because I want to help but , can't.
Some days the patients crack me up with their goofy jokes or uninhibited statements. Frustrating days when I know whats best for them but, they stubbornly refuse to acknowledge. There are days when I can't stop thinking about what happened at work, other days I prefer to forget.I try to smile and laugh or joke around even when I don't feel it because, I have realized that positive energy is just as contagious as negative ones. Smile can make someone forget their pain. Kindness and empathy can go a long way in making the day so much better and so much more important than getting them to follow through my plans for the the day. It feels like being on cloud nine when a patient recognizes my effort to make them better. Some experiences makes me appreciate every moment of my life. Some people's pain makes mine feel inconsequential. Sometimes its about making a tough decision of when enough is enough. Other times I just keep hoping things would turn around. Always trying to push them to be more functionally independent and safe so I can turn them loose. Then there is that time when I realize they left, when I least expected!
