Perspective

Hi everyone!

Hope y’all had an awesome couple of months and are enjoying the early signs of spring – I sure am here in Denmark!

As I’ve gotten older, I realize you get another perspective on things, a maturity that wasn’t there just maybe four years ago, it just sorta snook up on me really.. 

I have since I started working as a carehelper and then intern and now assistant intern, gotten a whole new view on life, it sounds corny I know, but life changed. I can’t tell you the exact time it did change tho, maybe it was when I cared for my first terminal citizen, maybe it was when I saw someone who had passed away for the first time or maybe it’s the countless times I have held someone while they cried for whatever reason. – I just know that I grew up.

I have learned to cherish my healthy body, feel blessed by my working brain, to appreciate my family and friends and to have patience and also most importantly empathy, not something everyone is born with, but something you need, if you want to be in the line of work im in. It’s something I know my mom have passed on to me, she was a carehelper herself, (she just retired) and I have grown to respect and admire her more and more through the years, I am so deeply proud of my mother.

I wish that I found my calling a lot sooner in life, cause now I just want to start my career and to start working – not something you hear everyone say I guess, but that’s how I feel. 

As I mentioned earlier, somehow I got more mature, and every step towards my education seems like it’s making me more sure of the choice of career I’ve taken. Everything just seems to work out for me and I am taking all my classes very seriously. It’s like I live and breathe for this, in some sort of way. I love that, I love the adult me, the mature woman I have turned into.

I find myself in situations, where I act very differently to how I would have acted when I was just four or five years younger, it’s insanely strange for me, but I also like it. I’m getting taken seriously when I talk about things conceening my field of work and in some way I’m proud but in others, I’m baffled! I still feel very young and very green, like I have a lot to learn, but I’m getting there and I’m willing to do everything it takes, to be a great assistant, it means a lot to me.

I love my line of work! ❤

Studying illnesses 

As you all know, I want to be a nurses assistant – and from there, I want either the nurses education or to be a social worker. I always loved making a difference and helping people, being supportive and caring. I am a kind person, always have been, I love that people depend on me!

Now I am researching different illnesses and trying to gather as much knowledge as possible, before school starts! 

So far I have researched:

  • Paralyzations 
  • Diabetes 
  • Bladder infections
  • Dementia 
  • osteoporosis
  • Cancer (mainly brain / lungs)
  • Terminal care
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Brain damage 

These are all illnesses I have experienced while working at the elderly home, and read a lot to aqquire knowledge about these different illnesses so I could help the citizen in the best way possible. 

If you guys have some illness in mind that you think would be good for me to know more about, then do tell me, cause I would love to know more about these kind of things before I start my school, so I at least know a little to begin with. It will be a big part of my work life to be able to recognize symptoms if they occur.

See you online guys! x
