This is my outlet to rant and rave since my ‘friends’ and ex tell me that what I feel is not valid. That I am hallucinating. That I cannot talk negatively about the place they call home. That I’m bringing them down.
‘Where is your Hippocratic oath?’ when someone walks into your hospital they are extra sensitive and need your utmost care. When you think you are being friendly by treating a patient as you would your drinking buddy. You are wrong! When you reprimand a patient for not hearing your stupid intercom as if the patient were 3 years old instead of over 40. You are most definitely wrong! Yes the patient is a foreigner and is very stupid does not speak anything other than ‘Unga Bunga’ that’s what you all speak in your country right? I assume you are all from the same country. 1 hour and a half later my health was not seen to and all I could do is cry. Then the memories start parading. The many times the police stopped you at the airport because you’re not wearing glasses or a suit.
That awful time the Swiss police wouldn’t let me get on the plane at the airport during a 5 hour layover in Zurich when my friend and I decided to see the center a little. ‘And why won’t you let me board my plane?’ No answer. The suspicious stares. It turned out I looked like someone who raped a girl the night before. Yes the suspicious stares. You will always feel like an alien I just need to vent right now because everything else is flooding. F…… You! Sorry for the spelling and grammar errors. I am walking the streets risking car accidents to write this.
