Comments11/01/2017 #48 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#47 I'm so happy to hear that someone with knowledge knew what to do and didn't give up @julio angel lopez lopez! How scary that must have been. I agree, 19 years later and still reason to celebrate, pop that cork! Good for the husband and director of the center against cancer. Thank you for sharing your story!11/01/2017 #47 Julio Angel Lopez LopezHello @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
In February my sister is birthday, she was actually born in May.
A fall, a slight blow to the head, the ice made him slip.
Apparently nothing had happened but a few hours later the world was complicated.
An urgent operation to relieve the pressure in the brain but ups, did not put drainage.
The improvement was progressing to worsening and intensive care.
Her friend (director of the center against cancer) and calls from Italy (her husband is Italian) with strong and high words (sometimes necessary) brought together a team that was resting to do the second operation, which fortunately was definitive.
Weeks later the three brothers with hair at 0, we had a great bottle of Vega Sicilia wine from the 85 this was in 2004 19 years of wine well taken advantage of.
Great buzz full of feeling.11/12/2016 #44 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#40 Hi @debasish majumder, it's true, humans will always make mistakes. We never held the nurse responsible because they are so busy- I can actually see how a mistake like that can happen. We do surrender our faith but it's great to stay vigilant knowing that humans will make errors. The best of the best make errors.10/12/2016 #43 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#39 Wow @mohammed sultan how kind of you to say. I think much of what comes naturally to me came from my years of working in Respiratory Therapy and the Cardiac Lab. Once you work in Healthcare it never leaves you. I appeared calm on the outside but I felt like I was falling apart on the inside. I have to give kudos to my brother in law too, he's been a rock of support for my sister and his daughter (my sister too, when their daughter had leukemia). I just love them so much!! If we lose our composure during a crisis, we are of no help to anyone. I broke down when it was over and I was all alone.10/12/2016 #41 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#37 Thanks Larry, I think I will work on one next week. I will try to make it simple! Sadly, many of us learn a lot of this because we had to. It would be easier to have a list with legitimate links as well if people do need to google info and how to look for a good physician.10/12/2016 #40 debasish majumderwonderfully posted post @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher! mistakes are natural to human s and we acknowledge to console us too, proving we are resilient, and capable to gain our usual spirit. but, we may not forget correctness and perfections are also made by humans, heralding us with a hope to survive with a renewed spirit and enthusiasm. are n't we expect positive delivery from their end who are suppose to render a service on which they are expertise? why should we surrender to our fate by acknowledging mistakes and destiny, which may engulf us with disappointment? however, lovely insightful post madam. thank you for the share.10/12/2016 #39 Mohammed Sultan@Lisa Gallagher.That's great,you lift nothing undone for your beloved sister and her husband because you were able to keep yourself calm and in control in such a stressful situation.You were able to show something completely different ;un interrupted breathing, positive face and mental control to respond instantly and in a more effective way.You not only have the creativity of a great writer but also the calmness of a successful surgeon.10/12/2016 #37 Larry Boyer#35 That's a great idea to make a checklist @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. It's a topic most people wouldn't even think about until it starts happening. Of course you should trust the experts know what they are doing, right? But when you see that they don't, there's no where to turn to besides Google and hope you find what you're looking for.08/12/2016 #35 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#33 Your poor grandma, good thing for your mom! This has been an issue for years but people were less informed before the internet. Not that we should use google as our Dr, but there are common sense things to utilize it for. Wow, how horrible that your sister in law was not only misdiagnosed with MS @Larry Boyer but given the wrong meds as well, that's scary! Did they ever figure out what was really wrong with her? It sounds like you are highly aware of the importance of advocating on behalf of our loved ones too. It is vital to prepare in advance... maybe I will make a simple check list and people can print it off in case they ever need it.08/12/2016 #34 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#32 That's a lot of loved one @Irene Hackett, and what a wise and loving person to help others as an advocate. You wrote this: "I always research the meds too - and write down the dosages and when they have been given. " A big one, thanks for adding that! Do you mind if I add it to my list? I do the same, because it's hard to keep track and I also use a drug interaction calculator to make sure they aren't giving drugs that interact w/another toxically. Sending hugs, so many curve balls get thrown at people in life!!07/12/2016 #33 Larry Boyer#28 You really have to keep track of everything. For my grandmother I don't know all the specifics as I was pretty young at the time - 11. But I do remember that she specifically wasn't being brought meals and so missing her feedings. My mother would check the charts to see what was supposed to be happening and noticed what wasn't happening. Another one, my sister-in-law was misdiagnosed with MS and was treated with a lot of medications that damaged her has a result before they figured out it was something else. While she's recovering now, she went from being able to run marathons to struggling to walk.
I can go on an on with stories. The bottom line, is what what say - you need to be your own advocate. It's important to understand that before you have a crisis too.07/12/2016 #28 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#24 Great line @Larry Boyer, "If you're not a nail, find the right tool." So true! I'm sorry your son had to see many Dr's before finding the 'right' doctor. That's another point to bring up and I'm glad you mentioned it- if a person feels there is something being missed, don't stop 'doctor shopping,' until you feel secure with the Physician knowing he/she looking into everything possible and if they can't find answers yet feel there is something going on, a good Physician without an ego will refer you to a specialist. We had a very bad experience with a health issue that was being mishandled and a misdiagnosis, so I went to UPMC's website (always good to find a top notch facility in certain instances) and I looked for a specific Dept first, then checked healthgrades and read bio's on Physicians listed w/in the Dept I found suitable. I emailed the Department with specifics and we ended up with an appointment 2 weeks later with the Medical Director, all of my husband's Physician's are located there now thanks to referrals. It should not have to be this complicated. Thanks for your comment Larry and that's so sad about your grandmother being fed after a stroke, I'm assuming she wasn't able to swallow well at all?07/12/2016 #27 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#23 Hopefully the time that will come will be a long way off. Write notes now and keep them handy on your phone, just in case you may need to use them one day!! Something as simple as a hernia repair, well it's always good to be there and keep an eye on your loved one! @Dean Owen

Comments17/08/2016 #2 Lisa 🐝 GallagherAll the wonderful nurses I know are commendable! Your friend was accurate in her description. It's not a glamorous job as many think it will be before they enter the field of nursing. When I worked in Respiratory Therapy, we could not leave if we were short staffed, or in the middle of a trauma (obviously). We were also told they had the right to make us work up to 50% of all over time requested. I found this out when I was pregnant, sick and working 10 hour shifts. Healthcare is a demanding field. I loved it. I have no regrets and learned so much. Nurses certainly are under-valued but they have one thing in mind, the patient! My daughter is a nurse and I'm very proud of her morals and values.

Never Give Up, and that's the inspiration and motivation drudged up from the fetal position at the bottom of the well. We both know that people can learn to 'look up.' When I finally looked up, the hand of Christ had been waiting for me the whole time.

Comments04/07/2016 #18 Leckey Harrison#17 I think one thing we've seen over time is that those who were violent and are in prison, had "hurt" at the foundation of their lives. James Gilligan wrote a book about it several years ago. The obvious presence of developmental trauma is clear: hurt people, hurt people. It doesn't mean all hurt people will, but just as clearly, sane healthy people don't. I think also we might see that even in icons, like Dr. Martin Luther King, that there were behaviors one would consider less than optimal. President Bill Clinton comes to mind. What prompts a man to commit adultery (a relative moral label), and then, to lie about it? If he was healthy in his relationships, would he have done that? If he were responsible, would he have owned it instead? Nothing is absolute, including the idea that hurt people, hurt people. When we look closely though, in my experience, it either happens via psychological hurt, and at the very least, self-hurt.04/07/2016 #17 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#11 I wonder who has studied the kids of abusive/alcoholic parents who haven't carried on the bad behavior.

Regarding infant abuse recurring over the generations: "Conclusions: This study provides the first evidence of genealogical effects on infant abuse in nonhuman primates. Several characteristics of infant abuse in socially living macaques suggest that this phenomenon could represent a good animal model for studying the etiology of child abuse and neglect."

Here's a 3-generational study of sons of alcoholics: "Results indicate continuity of aggression across three generations and also indicate that the child's pathway into risk for later Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is not simply mediated by parental alcoholism, but is carried by other comorbid aspects of family functioning, in particular aggression. /☝️ The patient population here may be most important in picking 'the right man." ☝️ i.e., 'don't have kids' with an alcoholic man, esp if his parents were alcoholics. And grandparents, especially. @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, @Rebel Brown , @Leckey Harrison, @Gerald Hecht, @Sara Jacobovici...hmm.30/06/2016 #11 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#6 @Rebel Brown, I have to agree with you that not all abused people grow up to be abusers. My mother was horribly abused yet she never abused us. She guided us with love. I honestly believe she got through life fantasizing about the life she would have once she got away from her parents. I believe she put her fantasies into action and we were very blessed to have had such a beautiful soul as a mother. I'm not sure what leads an abused person to abuse others but in many cases they don't repeat their own history. I have no stats so I don't discredit that this is a problem with abusers as well. I agree with not putting everyone into one category. This is a great topic and should be discussed. Thank you for tagging me too @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD30/06/2016 #10 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#4 @Sara Jacobovici: Absolutely agree that awareness is key. I have seen so many patients with this "generational" family abuse pattern...and the devastation inflicted on abandoned children as young as 15 yrs of age (have discussed with @Selim Yeniçeri, @Dr. Allen Brown, @Brian McKenzie, and more). I see the devastation, and have been both a battered wife and the wife of an alcoholic. So I've lived it, too. Please feel free to join my Hive: named "Invisible Illnesses: Child Abuse:" ( https://www.bebee.com/group/invisible-illnesses-child-abuse ).

I havent been commenting here much because I have fundamentally different perspectives from most of the comments here, based on both my experience and my coaching clients, many of whom come to me to release the trauma of PTSD and move on with their lives, quickly and effectively.. They aren't abusers, I'm not an abuser and so assuming that the abused are the source of abuse is much too broad a generalization for me to comfortably accept. I know too many people who were never abused that are some of the nastiest abusers ever. Especially i today's world where the masses are being constantly programmed toward fear which then breeds anger and violence. But I wanted to thank you for tagging me.30/06/2016 #8 Rebel Brown#7 I believe that generalizations are dangerous in their intent and result @Leckey, and that insanity and rage are often undetectable. Its certainly not only abused people that hurt other people. So saying all abused people hurt people is unfair in my world. But thats the beauty of our lives - we all get to have our opinions. Blessings...27/06/2016 #6 Rebel BrownWell, as an horribly abused child (my therapists told me to call it what it was, torture), I'd like to point out that I've never abused anyone and have the opposite response to many of the assumptions here. I've worked with a number of abused women and men. None of them were abusers either. In fact, every one of them became exactly the opposite type of person. Loving, caring,going out of the way to be different than their abusers. As with all things, I suggest to clients that they not apply broad brush applications to people about anything. We are ALL unique in our mind programming, and we all deserve to be given the respect of a positive perception until proven otherwise. Negative generalized assumptions be gone.27/06/2016 #4 Sara Jacobovici#3 Thank you @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD for bringing my attention to this update and its message as well as your comment. I will compact the complexity of the topic at hand into one word that is appropriate to the posting of: awareness. Imperative that we as a community are aware of the fact that traumatic events do take place and will impact on individuals as well as the community. That the impact can vary and to be aware of the signs and means to address those signs. Important that we use information and learning to treat each individual and individual situation with educated awareness and not preconceived ideas of what will happen, just what the potential of what may happen is and to ensure the support necessary for a positive outcome.27/06/2016 #3 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD@Sara Jacobovici, @Leckey Harrison, @Rebel Brown, @Randy Keho, @Mamen 🐝 Delgado: In the continuum of the child who underwent child abuse, let us consider: (1) Phase I: The (abused) adult who underwent intervention(s) to mitigate their own precious salvation; (2) Phase 2: The newborn babies of the abused parent, who has no idea what is ahead of her/him after looking into their newborn's eyes with true Love; (3) Phase 3: The parent's potential capacity (and statistical likelihood) of inflicting mental, physical, and emotional harm onto their baby as (s)he grows; (4) Phase 4: Transformation to consider all human actions to be either (A) Love or (B) a call for Love. (5) Phase 5: Forgiveness. Please help me forward to other interested parties I miss here: @Ali Anani, @debasish majumder, @Mohammed A. Jawad, @Mohamed S, @Daniel, ..... thank you.20/06/2016 #1 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDAlso note and wish that child abuse was specifically mentioned, but would you agree: child abuse leads to the next generation of child abuse, etc....and perhaps it is these abused children that grow up to be abusive husbands and wives, with the mental issues becoming more dominant if not addressed at the time, i.e., in childhood, youth, or teenage years. Increased awareness for Teens & Youth may be a good strategy working towards a solution? Would love your insight.
