The inferior lobe, lower part, of my left lung is scar tissue and I don’t get as much as oxygen as the “normal” person does. I spent a large amount of time in the hospital in an oxygen tent during the first few years of my life. The doctors put me on a transplant list, but, my mom argued with the doctors and told them that she didn’t want me to have a transplant. When I was three, I received a diagnosis of asthma. This new diagnosis led to more hospital time, more medications and more doctors informing my mom I needed a transplant, still, she resisted.
Take for example Elisha Nolan. She had the choice to amputate her leg from above the knee due to a rare condition called pigmented villonodular synovitis. (pigmented vill-in-ol-ager syn-a-vitous). This condition resulted in a bunch of tumors in her knee. Elisha had underwent 25 surgerys to try and fix the problem but none of them work.
The next day I’m preparing to leave for my mom to pick me up. I realized this severe pain shooting down my spine, I steadily took ibuprofen and other over the counter medicines hoping it would slowly go away over time. It didn’t seem at the time that it was something unusual or out of the ordinary. Finally, my mom picked me up we went and grabbed something to eat, then headed on our 30 minute trip home. I sat in the middle of the
In a few short weeks, heartbreaking news and the beginning of a long struggle would transform the lives of myself and my family. My grandparents, living in that little brown ranch house, played a huge role in my early life, often my biggest supporters and role models. So when my eighty-three year old grandmother was told less than a month later that her congestive heart failure left her with less than six months to live unless she chose to have open heart surgery, I was devastated. She had vowed to never do it, leaving me to think I was bound to lose one of my best friends. Less than a month later, she
That day was a turning point in my life I had dropped school, I was working a minimum wage job, and I was about to move out and possibly work at Meijer for the rest of my life. I’ll accept them and I will do my best for them besides having two little brothers couldn’t be that bad it could be fun having little twin brother running around, at least that’s what I
The doctor said that my voice went out because I spend too much time practicing and eventually my throat got sore. The doctor also said that It's only going to take a few days. I was not ready for this because I had the most important audition of my life. The next day I went to school and told my friends about my situation. My friends included Lucas,Alex, and Maya.
I was prepared to retake and nail this test. But, on New Years Day, I woke up with a bad stomach ache. It grew bigger until the point where I could barely move. My Dad took me into the Emergency Room and the doctors told me I had appendicitis. Looking back on that day, I was scared out of my mind.
The behavior I will attempt to change is hair pulling. About ten years ago I was diagnosed with trichotillomania because I felt I couldn't control pulling out my hair from my scalp. Since the diagnosis, the actual hair pulling has fluctuated. There were some years where I almost forgot that I had this problem, and other years where I could only wear my hair up to hide bald spots. The past two years I have noticed myself pulling out my hair less and less.
My goals for the future is 1st go to state fair community college in Sedalia, 2nd find a veterinarian job, 3rd buy a house in Blackwater, 4th when I have enough money to afford some children I will have 4 hopefully 2 girls and 2 boys. Do I demonstrate leadership skills In my opinion, no because I alway want someone to be the leader instead of me, I don’t do well under pressure. Am I cooperative In my opinion, yes I am cooperative, but if you ask my parents they may say no. Am I dependent In my opinion, yes but that question will need to be asked to the people around me. Do I want to be a lifetime learner?
Ever since I was little, I was diagnosed with asthma, which is a disease that causes inflation to the lungs which could cause severe wheezing and pain in the lungs, especially during exercising. With asthma, my chances of going into the military is almost slim to none because the military does not allow people with asthma to go into the military, unless they somehow pass their physical. On top of that, at the age of ten, I had an epileptic seizure due to a severe head trauma that I had earlier that day. Due to this catastrophe, I had to stay the night in the hospital, and when I was in the hospital bed, I realized that my life could be taken at any time. This was when I really started thinking and dreaming about going into the Air Force, even though this seizure could also lower my chances of going into the Air Force.
Also on page thirty-two, the nurse said that he was fine, but when the doctor came in she pressed his stomach and Walter screamed. The doctor immediately scheduled an appendix removal surgery. Walter said that he couldn’t do anything for a couple of weeks, on page thirty-three. He rode his bike for activity but his father came home. On page thirty-four, his father asked him if he was alright and yanked the covers back.
Over the years, she has taken oxycodone for treatment of her back pain due to other pain medications not offering relief. Ms. Davis has been compliant with her medications since her accident and only has gotten refills as scheduled by her prescription. At the last visit, Ms. Davis mentioned she had run out of her 60 pill supply of oxycodone that was prescribed and that she needs a refill because her pain is preventing her from performing household chores. She thinks her son might be stealing her medication considering that she has not taken more than the recommended dosages. After her physician spoke with her about ways to prevent her son from taking her medication and the consequences of her son taking her medication, Ms. Davis refuses to take any action against her
She chose to move away from her parents and live with her older sister and that decision she made was the main reason why she succeeded in life. In order for a person to learn, they have to either make mistakes or learn from others mistakes. Jeanette 's parents mistake was that they didn’t think about their future and they did whatever they could to survive their hardships. Similarly, Jeanette leaned from her parents mistakes that in order for her to be successful she needs to make a sacrifice and that sacrifice will lead her to a purposeful and a brighter future. She discovered many things about her parents as she was
Throughout the year, I gain more knowledge of the world we live in and become aware of my career. I took suggestion from guidance counselors and from my uncle about my career, I was depressed about my career because in my mind only one thing repeats, how I am going to live in this world and what I am going
This has been a challenging year for me as I am just now starting to learn the duties of a Paralegal and I haven 't quite figured out how to adjust my mindset from thinking as an Assistant to thinking as a Paralegal. This will be an ongoing goal for me as I am aware that I now need to be more proactive instead of reactive. I will work on how I can assist the team with technology and making it easier for the team to complete their work. In anticipation of the move I am assisting the team with packing and indexing items to ship to Iron Mountain as well as learning easier ways to eliminate paper using OneNote and volunteering as a Move Ambassador to help the team transition to the new work
