A Lifetime of Questions

Why?

How?

What?

What if?

When?

Where?

Who?

We often hear these words in our day to day life. Questions must be the most common thing we all ponder upon every single day and we never run out of it.

One question my mom hates asking herself is: "What is our viand for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?" And I can relate to it. Few years back when I just arrived here in the Philippines from my work overseas, my parents were both in the farm and I have to stay home with my nephew, niece and our youngest. That was a year I guess of asking myself what to cook, again and again. It can be really annoying in the long run, lol! So, I can't imagine my mom asking herself the same question 3x a day for a very longggg time.

Dad in my middle school and college days love to ask this question: "Why are you home late from school?" Jogging those memories now, I can just smile of how redundant that line from dad, it was like a broken record, lol! But, mind you I cried a river on those times, thinking how unfairly I was being judged by my father. I was never a rebellious child, the constant reasoning I can give for that question way back college days was, I always end up in long queue for photocopying notes and books, or we had snacks and chitchat with classmates over a bowl of Lomi. Well, simple things like Lomi with sliced bread is h-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s. Always brings back wonderful memories.

At work, a whole lot of questioning is part of the job. Patients should be asked about there past and recent medical history: "do you have this or that?" "what is your chief complaint?" "where is the pain?" "how is he/she feeling?" and etc. These questions are so much important for the initial evaluation, and to gather information that would serve as baseline facts or figures for the patient. One occasion, a patient came for PT with both legs swollen, a PT assistant was about to apply electrical stimulation on right leg as written in the file. When I noticed the condition of the patient's legs, I quickly ask if she has heart problem and said that she have for 5 years now. I then ordered to discontinue the treatment session because muscle stimulation might cause overload to the heart. My colleague had a reckoning after that, of how important to be so keen for new signs and asking questions for pertinent causes.

Watching this Korean drama series "Law School" magnifies my understanding of how important questions are and the process of interrogation. The lead star, who is a law professor and ex-prosecutor, is so sharp in asking questions and so discerning in getting the answers he imagine. No matter how tense a situation can be, a lawyer's engaging attitude to get answers is on point and unyielding. Indeed, lawyers are topnotchers in the field interrogation and have the artistic ability to orchestrate a perfect question. Yes! Just amazing.

Life takes us to a lot of questions and realizations. No matter how simple and mundane or complex life offers, questions always come heaps and bounds. Often times, we doubt ourselves and so often ask if we can make it? Yet, we never provide ourselves with answers, we just decide and take action. Questions are like this, they're just there to condition our minds of what we should be doing and must be done. Life questions aren't always with answers, they only have results. And how we choose to do it, makes up our life now.

If questions begins to be so overwhelming..

Just have FAITH.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” - Hebrews 11:1


This is a fun prompt to write about. This would be my take for @JonicaBradley writing prompt #4 Questions.

I remembered my article (as well as Bjorn's). We both cited the who, what, why, where, when, how in our introduction. Hehe.

Di ba napakaamazing ng nga lawyers? Ako namemesmerize ako whenever I woukd watch movies or dramas where people are in court. Their line of questioning is really so wow. That's why my dad really like the Suits American drama series. Not sure if it has that wow factor with the Korean remake. I will try to search that Law School if I will open my Netflix.

Naalala ko yang questions na yan sa hospital. Nung sa gallbladder ko noon na naER ako rate 1-10 how painful. Parang every 15 minutes ata nun may magtatanong sa akin. Sa kabwisitan ko sabi ko 13. Hahaha. Pero kasi literal sobrang sakit na talaga niya. Tapos nung sa appendix ko naman ilang beses ako tinanong if hindi ako buntis. Yes alam ko SOP lang nila pero kasi sinagot ko na siya na hindi nga ako buntis at hindi lang talaga ako nireregla. Hahaha. Ayaw kasi talaga ako paniwalaan. Tapos nagpabulong pa siya kung may boyfriend daw ba ako. Kasi andon nanay ko so gusto niya talaga iassure na hindi ako preggy. Kung hindi masama pakiramdam ko nun makikipagbiruan ako. Hahaha.

We really never ran out of questions. I like the thought that not all questions have answers but it calls for an action for us to do something. And if we ran out of answers, there FAITH comes in. That verse is one of my favorite verses.

After every meal, you worry again what's for the next one. One of life's unending questions :D

Keeping the faith will help us get through life. Take it upon yourself to not worry for things that have no control with.

Probably that's because life itself is a question and we're living the answers day in day out. And faith we must have, lest we merely exist, like a bot :)

Not everyone is blessed or endowed with a fully purposeful life to stop asking these fundamental questions. Faith indeed is vital, doctoral!

You made me smile as I remembered that question about what to eat was the same question my mother asked us for many years. I received therapy on one leg for sciatic pain. and was prescribed a type of current. That later I told the girl who attends with the current that I received oncology therapy she did the same as you. She told me that I can't receive current because of the amount of radiation still in my body. And she didn't put me on the current.

Oh yes, we do IFC or Interferential Current for patients with Sciatica 😉 your therapist is really good! I hope your sciatica is not bugging you anymore though, always remember proper back mechanics to avoid recurrence.
