12 Qualities Doctor Wanna-Be's Must Attain: Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Physician?

 Doctors struggle everyday to be super-human beings. They deal with LIFE and DEATH each waking morning whether they like it or not. It's a tough job and we do not refer to it as a job but a commitment- TO SERVE. My son expressed a desire to join the MEDICAL world someday...an entirely complicated profession that requires the following traits:

1. Impertubability

~do you have the ability to remain CALM and STEADY in times of emergency?

2. PRESENCE OF MIND

~when death is imminent and all hell seems to be breaking lose or when faced with a truly embarrassing situation can you remain in control to make the right decision?

3. Clear Judgement

~can you share an intelligible opinion that isn't ambiguous?

4. Ability To Endure Frustration

~do you have the strength to stay firm and deal with insecurity and dissatisfaction?

5. Infinite PATIENCE

~can you tolerate listening to crying children and adults alike? and do you have the heart to sit down and simply lend an ear to the confused and in pain with calmness?

6. Charity Toward Others

~the medical profession gives one the ultimate chance to SERVE the needy, to BRING comfort to the sick and dignity to the oppressed, a sure fire TICKET TO HEAVEN

7.  The Search For Absolute Truth

~physicians must constantly research to learn facts and pursue reality

8. Composure

~do you look like someone people could trust with their life and that of their loved ones? do you not only look like one but act like one and truly is ONE who can keep others calm?

9. Bravery

~Are you unshakeable when faced with the fiercest situation or are you first to run away? Do you cringe at the mere sight of blood or do you end up crying non-stop yourself when grief is all around?

10. Tenacity

~Are you persistent enough to attain a goal or sticking to your priorities? There are always things we need to give up to be the person we want to become, can you bear to leave your loved ones for sometime for the sake of greater good?

11. Idealism

~Can you stick to what MUST be followed and value excellence in all ways, always?

12. Equanimity

~Do you have the power to handle stressful situations without getting furious ?

The moment we choose to become HEALERS we have to leave the SELFISH, LAZY part of us behind because the reality is, we can not make someone feel better by simply looking at them. So, do you accept the challenge to balance all of the above characteristics to stay SANE ENOUGH to be a doc?

MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT BEING FUNNY- LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE- IN THE  PROPER DOSAGE I DARE SAY


*The above qualities were from the book Aequanimitas by WILLIAM OSLER, M.D. and adapted from Chapter 1- The Patient-Doctor Relationship of Kaplan & Sadock's Synopsis of Psychiatry 10th edition

Battered Woman Syndrome: How To Recognize The Signs


        Love is the most powerful of emotions. It could either make you or break you. Women tend to be easily swept off their feet when a man proposes with promises of heaven and Earth and everything else in between. We are genetically predisposed to respond to men's luring. As women we have to learn to protect ourselves from being stuck in disastrous relationships and end up being beaten by the man we thought would love us for all eternity. Thank God not all men are bad and there are many out there who truly know how to take care of a woman.

What is Battered Woman Syndrome or Battered Wife Syndrome?     

Welcome to Healthy, Happy and Inlove: Medicine and Law In Harmony

     Hi there friend! My name is Kulasa. I was born with the love for sharing my thoughts and making people happy. I consider it a gift. I am a mother of two boys, wife of one LOL. By profession I am a healer and starting a journey to became a legal advocate.My most treasured role is that of being a mommy and oh how I love being a woman! I honestly treasure that I have huge eyes and tanned skin and a heart that goes out to almost everyone. I have to admit I also have the capacity to hate yet try in every way to forgive, to forget and love endlessly.

  
This blog is about my constant journey to mastering the mind, body and soul and healing what ills them as well as my journey through legal matters in the Philippines. Sources of information will be disclosed as needed and credit will be given to the rightful owner of borrowed ideas. I am starting a chapter in my life.I am sure it won't be an easy ride, but a fulfilling one! I hope too that these pages will be of huge help to others who will trek the same journey....

     My most fervent prayer is for everyone in all the world to have a forgiving and understanding heart, for everyone to be selfless and each sick child to be well, for peace to reign the universe and LOVE to wrap each family member's heart. 
     I have had my moments of being unwell and sick to the bones and sadness visits this soul from time to time for no reason at all and yes I do have fights with the love of my life but those are nothing but silly, sweet fights, the kind that make marriage stronger and a woman wiser. Juggling family life and career isn't easy and I am no wonderwoman yet everyday I try my best to be the best mom and wifey. It is truly difficult like you all very well know but prayer and the best of friends who know who they are *wink* keep me on track and my sweet mama Rose to whom I owe everything that I am. She taught me humility, sincerity and everything in between.

     I believe at the moment I can say with a smile that I am Healthy, Happy and Inlove and wish you all the same state.

    Welcome to Healthy, Happy and Inlove: Medicine and Law In Harmony, I hope you enjoy your stay!  and more than anything else wish you and your family good health and all the blessings that money can not buy.
