Do you have a sleeplessness ???

An advice for all those who have a problem with sleep: STUDY MEDICINE.

It is amazing how these books can bring sleep , it was always a challenge for me to continue my study and keep my eyes and brain open and not to fall asleep , medical books have a magic power which could turn my brain off , so if you have any sleeping troubles I recommend these books.

Really I am known as a good reader , but when it comes to reading medical books I am a big lazy slacker person, you can easily imagine how relieving was my graduation , I am not going to say that I didn't study medicine since then , because that will be a big lie , but it wasn't a hard tough study , just some revision for specific topics, that is all...

And now it seems that those ugly days are coming back , to proceed in my career I need to continue my study abroad , and for that I have to prepare myself perfectly well, and here I am studying again.

Fortunately this time I start to study English not medicine, as a preparation to study medicine later , I applied to a language course run by the British council here in Libya, it sounded interesting at the start , our teacher is great he is a native speaker , my classmates are nice ,we study 6 to 9 hrs per week the main days are Tuesdays and Thursdays , I was active energetic at the beginning, get my homework done the day I receive it , but as the lessons progress it becomes harder , we sink deeper and deeper in the academic language , and that is really booooooooring ,,, and hellllllo... that big lazy slacker person in me woke up , last Thursday we got a writing task and it supposed to be ready and handed over to the teacher yesterday , and happily I didn't finish it till today and I will hand it over tomorrow, just imagine five days wasn't enough for me, what a shame, and I am good in finding excuses ( it was heavy week at work teacher , a lot of day and night shifts ...and the good voice in me shouting liar , liar, you didn't cover any duties neither a day nor a night shifts this week ) .

Today afternoon unfortunately found myself sleeping over my English book for the first time hope it is the last, so may be it is not really related to studying medicine, but to the Academic study in general , but I still insist the medical book rank number one for attracting sleep to me ... when ever I got insomnia (sleeplessness ) , I catch a book from my library and .. Hooops ... I dive into a peaceful ocean of sleeeeep...

So what is number one in your rank ?

I have a problem, I AM SPARKLING LIGHT.

Today's when I woke up and turned my bed room chandelier on, the last alive light bulb in it blow out, my bed room light bulbs have the shortest life span ever at our home ... Ooh ! no my bathroom light bulb has a shorter life span, and if a light bulb any where at home found to be blown up I will be the first one accused ( and really isn't me :( !!).. There were times during my childhood when this reached the level made my mom take a few moments with me, to teach me how should I behave when I want to turn on the light, she said don't rush or dash just stand calm take deep breath and then turn the light on ... and it has really worked for us and our light bulbs lived longer since then ...

But whenever winter arrives I start to suffer again from my electricity , I couldn't count how many times I saw the sparkling light around me when it is dark and I am moving around or under the blanket, and on daily basis I get a shock every morning when I get in touch with the metallic water tap at the bathroom or with the doorknobs, not to mention the shocks I get when I hit other people's body around at work accidentally , and even shock them sometimes but fortunately it is more often me who get shocked not them whenever touched so it is less likely for them to look askance at me and mumble what a freak ...

So to what extent do you experience this phenomenon ???

Share me your stories if you have any :0)

I am not a fan of winter season ...

I wrote this long time before and I find it today worth sharing

خواطر من وحي الصقع

عندما يشتد الشتاء ... وتغزر الامطار ... عندما تتحول قطرة الماء من شدة البرد الى تبروري قبل أن تلمس الأرض ... عندما يكثف الغمام ويسود الأفق ... عندما يضربك الكسل وتنام ناسيا تسكير روشن دارك...و تستيقظ في جوف الليل مرتعشا لتكتشف أن البطانية قد تزحلقت عن جسدك...عندما تنهض في الصباح الباكر لتدوش فتكتشف أنه لا يوجد الا الماء البارد (ماهو الضئ كان هارب في الليل مافيش امية سخونة ) ... عندما تستلقي بجانب الدفاية متلحفا بالبطانية مستمتعا بدفئها فيقض مضجعك رنين جرس الباب ولا يوجد أحد غيرك في الحوش ليفتحه ... عندما يزيد الكونجشن مع ازدياد الزمهريري ويتسكر الخشم...عندما يكثر العطس ... وعندما يزيد الكح .. فتذهب الى الصيدلية مستنجدا فتجدها مسكرة ( ماهو مؤتمرات ) ...عندها ... وعندها فقط ...تخطرين على بالي يـــــــــا

a sweet movie I recommend..

Griffin & Phoenix

Griffin is divorced, living in a flat in Manhattan while his sons and ex live in the family home in Westchester. He gets bad news from his oncologist: cancerous lesions have spread through his chest, and he has only a year or so to live, He audits a psychology class on death and dying at a nearby college where he chats up a woman , She's Phoenix; she smiles but keeps her distance, warming to him slowly, he tells her nothing of his situation, they start having fun together, The pair partner up to do all the crazy things Griffin always wanted to do: sneak into movies, hop railroad cars, and fall deeply in love, But Phoenix has a secret, she is also have a terminal illness , the most perfect part of the movie when the truth blow up barely in front of them ... And so begins a last minute chance for them both to discover all that life can be, however long there is left.
Look for it watch, enjoy, and tell me your opinion..

This lovely Abdallah was raised up in our department !! , he is an orphan ( parentless ) , and because he was discovered as hepatitis C positive at neonatal period there was a problem in adopting him by any charity association , so he stayed at the hospital waiting for the complicated steps of adoption to take place ...

He was grown up in our pediatric department , we were there to witness his first smile , laugh , his first dadada , and we were there to attend and enjoy his first step in walking , and one of my colleague was kind enough to take care of him with the help of all the others ( all the staff doctors, nurses, helpers, cleaners, & even some of our patient ) to bring him what ever he needed (water ,milk ,food ,clothes , games, ...etc) , he even arrange with paediatric surgery department to circumcise him ,and made a big party after that , we call that doctor Baba Abdallah , and others also act to assure that Abdallah received all his needed vaccines on time so he will miss nothing , so every member in the department is feeling in some way or another as if Abdallah was part of his family ...

Abdallah is ten months old now ,... we had arranged to send him a PCR for hepatitis C which is a confirmatory test to know the viral load and genotype for hepatitis C as a preparation before receiving any treatment for his hepatitis ... and the MIRACLE happened , he turned to be a hepatitis C negative , and the previous result was just reflecting his mom's serum which was transfused to him during pregnancy and delievery , that was a great news , we all was delighted and cheerful ..

Abdallah is negative...

We made a big party today's afternoon ...

the arrangment to adopt him after this news will be much easier ...

Look at this lovely boy ...

and pray with me for him to be adopted by a nice family which will make his life a normal happy and prosperous ...
yaaaaaaa Allah
