First love is scary because it’s like “holy crap, why is this person the first thing I think of in the morning, why am I disappointed when I don’t dream of them? Why is the desire to be with them so much stronger than hunger and thirst and exhaustion? Why does their name look so pretty written down? Why do I feel like I just fell out of a 30 story building when they look at me, and why do I like it?” And you become so comfortable with them that when they leave, your body doesn’t know how to react because they were as common to you as breathing, and now you’re missing a vital part of yourself. You forget that you were someone before them. You think “I was so empty until I met them.” No, you were full. And when you learned about love, you were fuller. Now you’re back to where you were before, and you need to fill yourself with other things. Fall in love with the way sunflowers naturally curve to face the sun, and the way children have no idea about taxes. Fall in love with the fact that you’re here and you’re still able to feel. Fall in love with the idea that you’re still whole, even when it’s 3 am and you can’t remember how to breathe because you think they taught you how to do that.

1. Not much new today.

2. Reading patients can be difficult… some give you a hard time over little things. Hats off to you, nurses, for your fortitude.

Do you feel as though you have the right to decide whether or not an abortion is okay? If you answered yes, I need you to answer one question for me:

  • are you the pregnant person choosing abortion for yourself?

No? Then it’s none of your friking business.

Societies, past and present, have long allowed limitations on bodily autonomy for both the private and public good.  Suicide is, strictly speaking, an exercise of bodily autonomy, but we don’t encourage it or sanction it as a moral good; in fact, we rightly spend quite a lot of money and resources discouraging and preventing that act. 

Same goes for moral prohibitions (whether expressed through law or not) against consensual cannibalism, mutilation, or public nudity/exhibitionism. 

Any time you are with anyone or think of anyone you must say to yourself: I am dying and this person too is dying, attempting the will to experience the truth of the words you are saying. If every one of you agrees to practice this, bitterness will die out, harmony will arise.

PR Volunteering Day 5

1. I like volunteering in PR cause I get to see patients at different levels of the “how much do I trust medical strangers” spectrum.

2. People keep thinking I’m some kind of inspector prob cause of the clipboard. I just keep it at my side now and ask the questions from memory. Makes it seem less intimidating.
