There Has To be More Than This...




There has to be more to life than this...there has to be...
Maya is still sick and she is a very difficult "patient". Doesn't want to take any medication - she vomits the pepto-bismuth for diarheea, doesn't want to drink Coke....she has a very bad case of tummy bug but without her cooperating, I am afraid we'll make it to the hospital...again...I know she is is pain and it's only a little girl...But how do you treat a very stubborn sick child? She has to drink and eat, despite her tummy ache, it is the only was she won't become dehydrated and her body will flush out the nasty virus...
It is soooooo frustrating....and my heart breaks when I see her suffer...
I think I also have the bug, I hope it is the same as Maya's and didn't take something else from the hospital...
Speaking of hospitals...here the health system is also very sick...the doctors were in and out striking for some time now, a month ago aproximately 500 residents handed in their resignations, and today the resignations were put into effect...generating the worst crisis of the health system here, in Israel...I am sure their actions are justified...but still, there are sick people out there...
You know what I think? That we are living in a very selfish world, were is only "dog eats dog". Everybody cares only about their own good and welfare, politicians , businessmen and doctors alike. Doctors want bigger wages, the government doesn't give them anything...so what if some people will die because of the grave shortage of doctors...Yesterday, hundreds of operations had to be postponed because the doctors didn't show up...I don't know, in these circumstances I cannot feel solidarity with their cause...I really can't.
So Please God help us all...Otherwise I'll loose any hope in humanity...

Never put your hope in humanity, it will fail you. Always keep you hope in God.
Things will get better, honest! You are going through the fire...and ther eis another side.

You are right Angel...I know that...but sometimes it is nice to be naive and hope...
I pray to God every day and believe me, I feel Him like my ONLY hope...
