Four days in to my new life as a Care Support worker (Nurse) wasn’t going well. Basically, I don’t have the strength to man-handle people on their beds to wash them etc.
On the first day I found it very emotional. I realise that we all take advantage of the freedom we have in our lives. Most of us have no health issues and can get up and go for a walk when ever we feel like it. Many of the people this particular Homecare Services take care of do not have that option but are relying on someone to do just simple tasks for them…
I met a lovely Christian lady who knew someone that I know and she only had the use of her right hand and can just about move her head. She was always very bright and cheerful and intelligent. I could feel myself getting quite tearful as I could empathise how frustrating it must be for a bright minded person to be trapped inside a body that can’t function.
With only the use of one arm she was keen to get onto her lap-top and communicate with her friends via email and with the use of her one arm could use the phone to call out.
I don’t know anything about MS but have since found this page on Facebook –
I love “Technology” – I would like to put a project together and raise funds to create applications to help people with MS and other disabilities.
This would be a good purpose that i could give my God given skills to accomplish something that would be of benefit to a great number of people, so it is important for me to realise that in my own strength I can do nothing, I need to rely on the Grace of God to be lead to the work that he needs me to accomplish…
