I Delivered my First Baby

Blog Entry I DELIVERED MY FIRST BABY…. Apr 26, ’07 8:10 AM
for everyone

I took up Nursing not because it’s the best profession in town, neither to be the best profession in the universe… not because it’s what i want, it’s because i didn’t have the chance to get what i want…

Nowadays, people are thinking that it is the money that we, the nurses and nurses to be, have in mind why we took up nursing… Because of the increasing demands of nurses (including the high salary) in different powerful nations why we are trying to pursue this profession… only few really loves to be a nurse… These are reasons. why many controversies are slowly polluting the minds of the people…

These things may be true, but i guess these factors are not enough to easilly judge a nurse (and nurses to be)… Please do try to understand, each and every individual’s situation…

Well, as part of a controversial group, i want to say my reasons behind my decision to take up this course….

=====> Ever since i was a kid, i really wanted to be a soldier because my father was once a soldier… A Sergeant i think…. Before he became a lieutenant, he went home without saying any word to his commander (AWOL)…. But, i was always teased, that i was too small to be a soldier, and so i changed my mind….

=====> Once there was this storm in Region 3 and our house back then was just *sawali and *kugon, and so i was watching the rain pouring, inside our kitchen… I told my mom, “Ma, i want to be a doctor so that i would be a help to many people. I want to be rich because i want to have my own shelter for abandoned children… My very important reason is because, I want to build you a house that you will be safe…”

=====> And so i finished high school at a good university because mom went abroad (when i was in Grade 4) to be a domestic helper, well, she said “to make your dreams come true”…

=====> I tried to pass application papers to different universities here in the Philippines…. but right after i recieved the date of my entrance examinations, mom told me to take up Bachelor of Arts in Nursing in the university where i graduated high school, because she doesn’t want me to be separated from my siblings… Well, i said yes, because, i wasn’t really sure of what i want to do… (i thought my dream would never happen)…. “Dawin, you can help me to support our family if you’re already a nurse, earning dollars would mean an easier life for us”…

“Right now, i can’t support your dream of becoming a doctor, because of our financial problems…You’re not the only one studying.”

“I’m having a hard time here Dawin. please pray for your Mama…I’m tired already…”

=====> I asked the Lord, “Lord, is it really your plan for me?Can i do it?”

=====> I told Mama that i don’t want to take up nursing… “I’m afraid” i told her…. “Afraid of what?!”

I WAS AFRAID OF TAKING THE BOARD EXAM… I WAS AFRAID OF HAVING A FAILING GRADE…. I WAS AFRAID OF HAVING A DYING PATIENT… I WAS AFRAID I COULDN’T GO ON… I WAS AFRAID, THAT I WOULD BE A DISAPPOINTMENT….

=====> i’ll continue this later…. i think i’m getting too emotional=)
