Day two..

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

emoticon Tonight I had a 91 yr old patient ask me to dance. He's a very sweet pleasantly confused (somewhat confused) sasssy gentleman. Glad to be in the hospital receiving what he said "fabulous care". I was thinking on my drive home about how I view my life/ self in general. It made me a little sad because of all the self loathing I have for my appearance and the ill fitting clothes - the lack of motivation - the lack of caring for myself.. I care greatly for my patient and try and give them the best possible care I can - advocate for them etc... It's about time that I treat myself like I do my patients. I'm not sure why things got the way they did but I'm glad I've taken this step. My daughter was the one that got me searching for a program to join. She's 27 but mentally age 12 - she was watching The Biggest Loser one evening and she came to me and said "you're fat and fat people are like ticking time bombs with their health and I don't want you to die to early." Crazy what makes you stop and think.. Day two? Overall went well. I'm happy I found this site.

    Sounds like day two had you thinking about a lot of things.
I agree that we should treat ourselves how we help or treat others, we tend to forget what is important, we forget about ourselves and worry about others. Sounds like this was an eye opening milestone for you. :)
