You/We are not alone - Nanak Dukhia Sab Sansaar

1 post in this topic

Something weird and wonderful happened today as I went to my clinic appointment today. As usual, I went in to see the nurse, but the day she called and asked me to go in early, so I was a bit rushed in a panic to get there on time and not prepared as I should have been. 

Anyways, as I walked into the room, the lights were off and she asked if we could sit in the dark as she wasn't feeling too well from headaches. So, I agreed and as normal she asked for my feedback and how I'm doing, going into other treatments, etc. I noticed she wasn't her normal self, so I asked her about her health condition and what she had treatments she had tried. From that moment onwards, it felt as if our roles had been swapped and I never seen a professional so down and tired. So, I thought she normally helps me and is a great nurse, let me try to help her, but wasn't sure if it was right or if it would help her. I gave her suggestions of treatments I had tried for some of my symptoms and as I knew they can also be beneficial to her symptoms too. I also said some funny things which coincidentally did happen this morning and we're connected to me being there as a patient and we both laughed. I could see her eyes light up and gradually her see her relaxed than before, so I asked her how she was feeling than before and she replies "I feel a bit better". And so did I from rushing around and not being organised for the appointment.  

When my session was over she walked me to the reception and kept hugging me as if to say thank you and I could see I'm not alone with my health problems. Even health professionals have their bad days, but it felt good to see that she had benefitted from a simple thing as laughing and happiness. That diverted her from her symptoms and she was able to carry on better with dealing with me as the patient. Seeing her smile and relieved from her symptoms, made my problem feel less too. I was happy to see her happy. 

So, the point of the topic is, not to get stressed out too much over things we can't control, but when we need help to share our problems with others, either friends or relatives or even anybody that would make you feel better. It helps to feel lighter by reading or watching funny things. I also remember there's been a few past posts about humour on here. 

You/we are not alone, the whole world is in the same boat. 

This shabad came to mind after today:
