Too many times we hear of people committing suicide because someone cyber or in-person bullied them. To me those bullies are COWARDS!! They have other issues themselves that are not resolved. Let today be the start of a new wave to be kind to others. There is too much bullying regarding race, socioeconomic status, marital status, gender identity, and a new one health bullying over mandates.
“The National Centre Against Bullying defines bullying as an ongoing and deliberate misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical, and/or social behavior that intends to cause physical, social, and/or psychological harm. It can involve Bullying is an ongoing and deliberate misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical, and/or social behavior that intends to cause physical, social, and/or psychological harm. It can involve an individual or a group misusing their power, or perceived power, over one or more persons who feel unable to stop it from happening.”
Pres. Joe Biden urges unvaccinated Americans to get vaccinated: “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us.” http://abcn.ws/3BULUX6 Wowwhether I believe in vaccines or not is irrelevant, but as a healthcare provider myself I have to respect when a patient tells me, Ms. Rosie, I do not want to get vaccinated. It is a person’s personal choice. We can agree to disagree but that is the same as when I want to help my patients to quit smoking because they will develop lung or other types of cancer, or stop drinking so that they do not end up on a liver transplant list.
In today’s world, healthy people choose to do to their bodies as they please, and although some may disapprove, no mandates on their careers or privileges are taken away ( ex breast augmentation, butt lifts, transgender surgery, abortion). So why not allow autonomy in today’s world for people to choose what they inject into their bodies. Legal marijuana is a thing right? We may or may not agree with that, but no one is forcing anyone to use this as their treatment for pain.
So today let us spread kindness and respect. I say this also to our leaders in Washington, allow people to make their own choices, your political mandates will turn voters away from you. I will also leave this with you, if you are in a car accident and taken to a hospital and it is a matter of life and death and the only person who has the specialty for your type of injury is unvaccinated, will you refuse to help? I don’t think so, because at that point you are so incapacitated that no one is going to care if the person saving your life is vaccinated, they will only care that they took the hypocritical oath that they are to follow.
In 2020 a new hypocritical oath for physicians came out and it states
“The new oath asks physicians to eliminate their personal biases, combat disinformation to improve health literacy, and be an ally to minorities and other underserved groups in society. It is illegal for a physician to refuse services based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.
For nurses, they have taken the Nightingale Pledge
“I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.”
The new version also adds
“I will hold in confidence all personal matters coming to my knowledge. I will not permit consideration of religion, nationality, race, or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient. I will maintain the utmost respect for human life. I make these promises solemnly, freely, and upon my honor.”
So today as you go about your day, remember the things that are important to you with your healthcare and how it would make you feel if someone took those healthcare decisions away. For Example diet, do you really need to eat that piece of chocolate cake when you are overweight, diabetic, with high blood pressure? Sounds kind of harsh for someone to say that right? But people do and not with grace I might add.
