My first semester of college was quite rough, as early on a tumor was found in my mom’s hip. I was forced to drive home and help my mother and family out, making my transition into college extremely difficult for a while. My two Q drops my first semester were not because of my inability to understand the work, for when I retook calculus I got an 89 in it, but rather the difficulty I had dealing with this tough time and transitioning into college. Sadly, I also had to use two Q drops last semester with some scheduling issues with my afternoon classes because of that business I was running to pay for my tuition and necessities. I had to make a sacrifice here due to the fact that majority of my family 's money has been going towards medical expenses and my dad had lost his job.
I have been locked up for a week. I have been thinking a lot about my life and how it’s going to end any anytime now. I told the judge Danforth that I am pregnant. Unfortunately I am not going to be able to live with my baby because I am going to get killed a month after. The reason why I am going to get killed is because I was charred guilty.
I was born on August 16, 1996. My mother has always told me that she knew I would be an impatient person: not only did I come a week early, there were only three hours between her water breaking and hearing my first cries. I was born into a somewhat poor family, but we always had enough to scrape by. A lot of people look back on their childhoods fondly, but I’m afraid I can’t say the same. Other people have certainly had it worse, but each person is affected by life events differently.
A year ago I was rolled into the operating room not knowing what the next year would hold. I didn 't know if the procedure would work or if I would feel any different. A year after my heart surgery I can say I am migraine free and getting to live my life again! I lived my whole life with a small hole that I didn 't even know was effecting me the way it was and now I don 't have to worry. Couldn 't be more thankful for the great doctors and nurses at St. Francis who have given me things I didn 't know I was
Unfortunately, according to my profession, if I’m around people at my job I have to take it for life, or if I’m not around people for the majority of my job I only have to take it until I’m twenty one. I began to notice pains in my heart from time to time and notified my mom who, in my opinion, overreacted. Turned out that I had a slight heart murmur which is kind of like getting cramps in one of the most important organs in your
February 26 I went into the surgery room, frightened of something going wrong. It was a rough two weeks, harder than any conditioning or the flu I have ever had. The pain was unbearable. With every move of my hip, ankle or knee came a sharp pain, bringing tears to my eyes and me calling for my mom. Soon came therapy;The most boring and uncomfortable thing someone could experience.
I asked my Grandmother, when you finally went for your scan and the results came out positive what was your first reaction? She answered in tears and said i immediately fell to the ground in shock, “I suffered through the treatment and ended up in breast conserving surgery were i got my left side breast removed, over a 2 months of healing after being in hospital for 1 week after my surgery, after a couple of months after my surgery i went for my weekly check up and the Doctor then informed me that i had to get a mastectomy done on my right breast because the cancer cells had spread too and also a bit just by armpit , i am now 77 and finally recovered from the removal of both my breast and now i am proud to say i am Cancer free but in saying that i will never again hesitate getting a check up to insure I’m well. Because my grandmother was a victim to this disease me and my 5 sisters have a great chance of also getting breast cancer. My grandmother asked me to research some of the symptoms that could possible indicate that i may have breast
I then became cancer free for a year; I thought this was the end. I thought that I had beat cancer but then life threw a curve ball my way. I went back for my checkups and the doctors observed a lymph node near my heart. This was my first relapse and I couldn’t help but feel a little defeated. My doctors decided to start me off with surgery with the hope of getting rid of the lymph node faster.
I had been out of the saddle for about six weeks after that, my hands had blisters where I had gripped onto the reins so tightly. It had made closing my hand a very difficult task for the next four weeks that came. Once, I was finally all healed up it took a couple of weeks for me not to be scared of him again. It was difficult, and I wanted to sell him and spend my money on lessons instead. However, my mom, friends and trainer had pushed me to work past this problem and not give up on him.
My body ached, I stopped eating and tried to stop feeling by sleeping for close to twelve hours a day. Luckily my parents, god bless their souls, fought tooth and nail with me almost every day just to get me to sit up and get out of bed never mind leave the house. In the winter of 2014, I was diagnosed with clinical depression. As time went on I was able to get treatment and by late spring I was back at school. When school ended in June of 2015 I wanted to continue on to my senior with the rest of my classmates.
I did not know that they had one, which I found out it is a excellent tool as you go working on your problems you feel that you getting there as you pass each step. Besides the steps, I did know that people after five years were still working on the steps, that it takes a long time to finish the twelve steps. The effect on my nursing practice would be that even though a patient told me that they have such numerous years without using a substance or drinking, I will know that they will always be addicted and that will help me with my plan of care, on how I should provide care for that patient and give them support. My thoughts at the completion of the meetings were that I was glad that the school made us go to one of these meetings. It was such a pleasant experience, they were so content to see that nursing students were there willing to learn about their problems and to learn how to treat them.
