These are just a few of the many things that come to people’s minds. In all fairness, I had those same ideas too. Many people have driven or walked past a group of homeless people and ignored them or gone out of their way to not make contact. It’s just part of our culture. Homeless people are shunned and looked down upon.
The emergency department has always drawn my interest due to unexpected injuries, and how many people walk through the doors. I don't know who will come in next, and have no way to prepare besides making sure the equipment is working. During my shadow experience, it was not at all busy, and I was able to follow the doctor to discharge one patient who tried to pass a bowel movement, and fainted, while driving. I also got to greet a tachycardic patient complaining of chest pain with the nurses, and later with the doctor. Although I was unable to witness many patient interactions with the doctor I shadowed, it allowed me to see the other side of his role.
There was one small moment of discomfort when one older member started making nasty comments to a very young member because he was “talking way too much”. The older man stated, “The thing that will save you, is if you shut up”. I found this to be very rude, as did many of the other members. I, however, did not say anything because it was not my place. Other than that short moment, I really enjoyed this meeting.
People hear about lives that has been lost and damages many accidents caused but they choose to ignore it. Apparently, it seems as people rather experience the tragic in their own way before taking the right action which is not texting and driving. Unfortunately, even though most understand the issue, understanding itself is not good enough for them to make the right decision as Winfrey
Many innocent and good people are held in treatment facilities, not because they did something wrong, but because they cannot take care of themselves outside of the facility. These are people who do not have equal rights to other citizens, because their mental and emotional capacities are limited. Similarly, people with dementia often lose privileges like driving because they are no longer able to drive safely on the roads. Similarly, someone who is put in prison is put there because of something that he or she was convicted of doing, which was illegal. People are not imprisoned for being black or white or Jamaican or Canadian, they are imprisoned based on their actions.
In Andre Dubus’ “Why the Able-Bodied Still Don’t Get It”, Dubus similarly describes how he recognizes himself being treated patronizingly by others. Furthermore, Dubus explains how prior to being hit by a car and losing the use of his legs, he had not understood the disabled community. While discussing this Dubus states, “I lacked the compassion and courage to imagine someone else’s suffering” (Dubus). This statement shows a perspective that is true for many people who do not understand how a disability affects one’s life, and Dubus is able to convey this message in his essay. Harriet McBryde Johnson also has a valuable perspective on disability representation and treatment that she argues in her essay “Should I Have Been Killed at Birth?”.
According to Merriam-Webster, depression is, “a serious medical condition in which a person feels very sad, hopeless and unimportant and is often unable to live in a normal way.” While much of this is true, many people with depression find ways to blend in and conform with the rest of society. The main issue with depression is not necessarily the symptoms,
His brain scans showed that his left hemisphere was almost entirely dark (this means a lot of brain tissue had died). He has aphasia that effect on him and his wife had been very frustrated with his therapy and with their inability to communicate with each other. Phil had been a very social person, and he could no longer participate in his favorite social activities because he had Wernicke’s aphasia. He could only say a few stereotypical phrases, such as “well, sh**”, “something wonderful”, “sometimes I walk”, and “sometimes water”. He did not recognize that he said these things, but he had a great sense of humor and was persistent and
It is not surprising to see that many people are unwilling to help others, whether they are strangers, close friends or family, when they are too occupied dealing with minor or major problems in their own life. However, in An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff, the main characters Laura and Maurice demonstrate a completely different type of thinking. Their lives have not been easy, but they still try to give and assist, despite the circumstances they are in at that moment. This shows the readers that unlike the majority of the population, there are still some people who’d be happy to put others in front of themselves. The chances of actually noticing something you are used to seeing everyday and changing your actions is very slim.
Often, it goes without notice because people don 't want to face the fact or don 't know what is actually going on with them. It 's not an easy task maintaining the pressure of school, friends, family and many more things and the effects from this are often confused with stress. Therefore, it is important that we pay close attention to our loved ones and talk to them to make sure they are not suffering from this horrible thing called “depression”. Many people suffer from depression and don 't actually know it and often ignore the situation. Depression may affect different people in different ways and there are many different cures for individuals who suffer.
