My Reasons For Breathing

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Done! and other stuff....

Yes!  I am finished with my M.A.

The question now is... "what now?"  Seriously, I don't know.  Since I am on dialysis forever, I don't know if I can still work or if a company still want to hire me.  I am planning to apply as a part-time professor somewhere, I am looking for online work, etc.

Anyway, I have this terrible pain on my right arm.  I cannot lift it all the way up.  Changing clothes has never been so challenging.  :))  I think it's because of too much typing on the PC for my thesis.  It happened to me before in college.  It was called carpal tunnel syndrome.  Follow the link for the explanation.

I remember it took 2 months for the pain to go away.  It's been almost a month now.  I hope that it goes away soon!


Lesson Learned

I am an active Instagrammer.  I post pictures of what interests me.  There was one Instagrammer who I struck a conversation with.  She is also a dialysis patient.  She was asking help from the numerous actors and actresses also on IG.

Since I was "pakialamera," but I opted to label myself as "helpful," I told her things she needed to know in order to get a transplant.  Going to the PCSO, mayors, councilors, the usual government organizations where help is available.  I told her if she is going to ask actors/actresses "baka matagalan ka."  You can view what I said here.

She then made me look like I was insinuating that what I did was wrong, words like "wala siyang mapapala sa paglapit sa mga artista; and, wala siyang tinatapakang tao."  Which I NEVER insinuated.  I said "matatagalan" which is completely different from "walang mapapala."

Sigh.  I guess I should never comment on others especially when they didn't ask for my opinion.  She also posted on her IG what I said (which is a different version), and people were like... opinionated too.  The post was deleted, from what I can see at her page now.  I really do not care about what they say, because I know I was right and I didn't do and say anything wrong.  I am posting this now on my blog to help me remember that I SHOULD NEVER COMMENT on others anymore.  If I have an idea about what I read/see, I should just post them on my own page.

I blocked and unfollowed her not because I was mad or angry at her.  I just did that to avoid another misunderstanding.  Besides, we're not really friends but just acquaintances. I also did not want to see negative posts, because she posts things insinuating suicide and giving up.  I do not need more negativity in my life.  I have enough problems to deal with and opening my IG seeing her negative posts will just get me down.
