Exhausting day at work today. My 12 hours shift is full of actions and number. Here is the breakdown of what happened: 33 admissions, 21 seen and sent home, 4 code blue which resulted with 2 revives and sadly 2 mortalities or death.
In my line of work, i've seen so many types of cause of death. Heart attack, severe asthma, gunshot on the head, vehicular accidents and many more.
When death knocks on your door will you let it in? Or are you afraid of death?
Death, the end of the life of a person or organism. It is unique and that everyone has a different perception of it. Some may sees death as beautiful, something we should cherished. However some are afraid to die.
The state of no longer existing is incomprehensible and terrifying. Maybe this is why religion is created to give hope for the sufferers that they can live on after death.
Are you afraid of death?
Before I am!
I was raised in a Christian family. Although i have faith in my religion, i had doubts from time to time seeing all the chaos going on in our world. It even made me question the righteousness and existence of God.
3 years ago, a little girl brought to the emergency room, she was hit by a car but sadly died. I can't even save the life of this poor little girl. How could God allow such thing to happen? Will that little girl rejoicing on heaven right now or she simply vanished from existence? These were the thoughts that crossed my mind and then i found the answer.
2 years ago, as i am going home from work and was waiting across the street, the little symbol on the pedestrian lit up and i began to walk. When i was nearly midway on the street, a reckless driver sped through the red light and made beeline towards me. I turned my head just in time to notice the car headlights turned on and then my turned shut.
As the car collided at me, i was thrown away and smadhed on the ground. I felt like all my bones are cracking and tried to scream in pain but i couldn't. Blood began pouring out on my head and the only thing i could think about is scream for help but my mouth is frozen, well in fact my whole body is frozen.
My perception is still working but i can't move, i heard the driver spouting curse words and look terrified. The driver called the police and told what had happened.
The policemen arrived with a medical examiner checked me but i'm losing so much blood. And that's when i can't keep my open anymore and i didn't know what had happened after.
I was in a coma for 3 days, i can feel and hear my surrounding but i can't open my eyes nor move my lips or body. I heard my mom was crying and became silence as she approach me. The one thing i wanted to do that time is to open my eyes and tell my mother to stop crying.
I pray and pray that time to God heal me but it's not working. Then when i was in the verge of losing hope, i heard someone talking, "Open your eyes. Everyone is wating for you", then suddenly I can open my eyes. I look for anyone on my room to see the one who talked, but there is no one to be found. My recovery state went on for 2 months. And now i'm writig this article to share with you that "God do exist! Never be afraid of death".

I think everyone at certain point will be afraid to die even if they are telling that they don't.
