Psychotic drugs

Next week will be hell week for me with the case presentation and five I.C.U articles to be passed plus the prelims scheduled on Thursday and Friday and two comprehensive exams on Wednesday. This made me remember I haven't paid my tuition fee yet...hala lagot!! Well, never mind that would be easy to deal with. What's bothering me is how will I be able to memorize bunch of psychotic drugs. Thankfully, our Psych instructor came up with a plan... Just like mnemonics, it will be helpful for us to incorporate the drugs in a song.

Ain't got no money in my pocket, but have De-si-pra-mine
And now, the dudes are lining up cause of Tri-mi-pra-mine
But we kick em to the curb unless they have amox-xa-pine

I'm talking about Dox-xe-pin ‘n Pro-trip-ty-line
Nurse trying to give me drugs, drugs

Now, now, suicidal till I Calm, calm

Side effect and Nsg. Intervention of the drugs
(Tune of Way Back into love)

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
side effect of
antipsychotic drugs

akathisia, sedation and dreams away
Anticholinergic signs dry mouth, blurred vision
constipation sometimes
and orthostatic… hypotension

All we want to do is find a way to normal
we can't make it through without these antipsychotic
(oh oh oh)

Dystonic reaction, Tardive dyskinesia
neuroleptic induced parkinsonism
I know that it's out there
photosensitivity, wt. gain, seizure

I've been looking for nursing intervention
administer medication as ordered
assess for effectiveness
reassure client if frightened

All we want to do is find a way to normal
we can't make it through without these antipsychotic
And use hard candy for relief
increase fluid and dietary fiber intake

Oh oh oh

encourage balance diet and exercise
stop all antipsychotic medication
notify physician
Not just another negotiation...

..Talking about Nursing is an ART.. smile smile!!
 ..Good Luck sa akin.. sa amin.!

XOXO .. papasa kaya ako??

A voice

I heard a distant sound.. A faint voice uttering your name. I thought I am hallucinating---- but--- then pain began to flood my memories like a plague, infecting my heart sending shivers of sorrows to my unhealed soul... I still miss you eh. Your name which is so hard to forget.. your name that hid in the deepest corner ...of me.. Your name that starts with "C"

I Bleed... T.T

Coffee Me

A not worthy letter [from the heart] to someone whom I care about while having my coffee addiction last cold rainy night.

Dear you,

First cup of coffee. I remember the first time you talk with me. You seem so awkward, you hardly uttered the word you wanted to say. Bemused, I silently smiled. With those awkward gestures I got intrigue. Later on, I realized, CURIOSITY really do kills a cat [laughs].

Second cup of coffee. Those intrigues leads you to my heart. Knowing your the type not to easily smile, I hardly notice my own happiness whenever I managed to make you laugh. I learned from someone that your hesitant at first to even approached me. Yet, you found yourself laughing at my unnoticeable humor and infamous jokes. [winks]

Third cup of coffee. As our friendship lengthens, I learned to adore your quiet yet boyish nature. I found myself sharing you my inner thoughts, my insane mind. I am glad you didn't judge me or anything, but just accept who I am. I found a true boy bud in you.

Fourth cup of coffee [final round]. I don't know what would happen next though. I just hope that whatever God has in store for me , You'll always be a part. SMILE...SMILE!


``P.s. Oh! I hope it doesn't sound too emotional again.. haha..

Love is like a clock that tic so fast.
It's a bell that rings in everyone's Heart.
Endure hindrance and pain up to the last,
Love is in the heart in which we will start.
It subtracts sadness and divides sorrow.
The rays of sun that lights up insane mind,
when it seems like paths were being narrow
That's when it's really love that you have find.
It's not just for the sake of appearance,
But it's love that you bear in your mirror.
why don't bare it out and give it a chance?
For it's inspiration not an error,
Gives us reason to be happy and gay
and the thing we live all through, come what may.

" You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love. "
Henry Drummond

" Romance is about the little things. "
Gregory J. Godeck

" Romance, like the rabbit at the dog track, is the elusive, fake, and never attained reward which, for the benefit and amusement of our masters, keeps us running and thinking in safe circles. "
Beverly Jones

" When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving oneself, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance. "
Oscar Wilde 

Natuwa akong maghanap ng mga personality type tests 'cause of my major subject, Psychiatric Nursing. I am having so much fun. Here's one of the test I have found. Sorry Jhiegzh [special mention ..hehe] for it's all about the pathetic thing called 'LOVE' again.

Are you the romantic type?

To bask in the delights of idealized love is, in essence, to be a romantic. Hollywood, it seems, has personified romance as candlelit dinners in fancy French restaurants or giggly chases in slow-motion through daisy-filled meadows. The truth is that expressions of love and affection don't have to be expensive or overwhelming. Holding hands, casual walks, or a simple "I love you" are those little things which can really go a long way. If you aren't comfortable with the traditional romantic protocol, you can come up with your own ways of letting someone know how much you care. The truth is that there are no rules.
It is important to note that romance is not a component of love that appeals to everyone; nor is it necessary to keep passion alive. Passion can be stirred by simply being respectful and honest with the one you love. Whether you're a romantic at heart or a more pragmatic lover, as long as you're willing to put your heart and soul into a relationship there is no amount of roses, candlelit dinners or four-string quartets than can measure up or compare to that. 

Result: According to your score, you are romance typified! Rose petals, poignant poetry, tall glasses of wine, touching moments, and sweet words are all loving gestures that you love to receive as well as offer. Romance is very important to you, and quite likely an aspect that you consider fundamental in relationships. Keep in mind however, that problems may arise if you are with someone who really isn't the romantic type. If you look forward to Valentine's Day to express your love and your partner doesn't even acknowledge it as a special day, you might end up feeling neglected or your efforts unappreciated. Nevertheless, even if your partner isn't as romantically inclined as you are, try to be appreciative of his/her efforts when she/he does try to woo you. Some people aren't comfortable displaying their affection in screamingly obvious ways, but this doesn't mean that they don't care ? they simply prefer to be more subtle. Whether it's you or your partner who is doing the romancing.

Advice:Romance doesn't have to be complicated or expensive ? just from the heart. Remember ? it's the little things that matter the most. Whether it's you or your partner who is more of the romancer, check out the ideas below for some simple and sweet romantic gestures.

• Show up at your lover's workplace and whisk her/him away for lunch or a walk.
• Put a note on the bathroom mirror promising to share an afternoon delight.
• When you are not together, call or send a message just to let your partner know that you miss him/her.
• Ride your bike or walk the distance to your significant other's house just to see him/her for a few hours.
• Dress and/or undress each other.
• Kiss every part of your partner's body.
• Hold hands.
• Surprise your partner with plans for a fun day-trip together.
• Go to a toy store and play like children.
• Bring your partner a treat when you pay him/her a visit.
• Get up early and make him/her breakfast in bed.
• Compliment him/her. A simple "You're adorable" or "You're so much fun to be with" is perfect ? just make sure you mean it of course!
• Find out what your partner's favorite dish is and surprise him/her with a home cooked meal one night.
• Find out what his/her favorite song is and request it on the radio as a dedication to him/her.
• Put together a journal of romantic quotes, poems and songs.
