“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
I am very disappointed in our Health Care system in Canada!!
We need more nurses, doctors, counsellors and psychiatrists as there seems to be a shortage in the system. I am in the Niagara Region and cant believe how long of a wait time it is to see a doctor in Emergency. It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 hours and I think this is ridiculous. The only way to save the wait time is to go in by ambulance as then you are priority.
It seems you can't even get a Family doctor these days unless you are lucky enough to find one taking new patients.
People that are in the hospital need family members around them to keep an eye on things. This is very important. My mother was in the hospital and she had a lot of health issues. She had taken a stroke and was in the hospital. I had been working full time and could not get there everyday. She could not feed herself due to the stroke. She ended up dying due to dehydration-kidney failure. This has bothered me and has been an issue ever since. So please keep an eye on family members that are hospitalized. Something needs to be done about this.
What are your thoughts on the Health Care system? Do you have a Family doctor? Have you ever had an experience like this?
I came across this video a true story about bullying and the effects it has on a person. I believe death and life are in the power of the tongue. People sometimes don't realize how powerful their words really are. This is a true story about a boy named Ryan. I am glad that there is more discussion in the schools and programs for kids these days on bullying. Back in the day when I was in school there was no school assemblies or anything on bullying. Glad to see there is more awareness about this issue and people are taking a stand against it. Watch this heart felt video! Comments about the video are welcome.
