Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff

My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk. 

My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2

My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits. 
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving

Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s. 

As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!

listen to ur boobs

My aunt had breast cancer. She is Greek and when she found out she was so afraid she would never get to see her family in Greece again. She was very lucky that she made it but she had to have her breast removed and now she lives in Greece

Seizure First Aid. 

Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

This is so important!

Really good friend of mine from work back home had seizures a few times on the job. This is crucial information.

You never know when someone could need it

Anonymous asked: Hi I am interested to go to Beda for med. Can you give me the curriculum or even just the subjects sa first year, please? Thanks.

senyorajie:

Well they have the basics for the subject. Histology, Gross Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Family Med I. They have Psych and Neuro too. Tapos for super minor subjects, there’s Theology and Bioethics.

Exams are done on a computer lab. Literally, after you take the exam, alam mo na agad yung score mo. Passing is 60%. I know parang mababa pero sobrang hirap din sya maabot. Haha. Oh Neuro has preceptorials come second semester. Meaning you have real patients and you do neuro exams sakanila. I transferred after my 1styr sa beda and most schools don’t have preceptorials until second year so those actually came in handy. OH. And they don’t have exam weeks. Walang prelim, midterms. I think they have finals now though. Pero usually the subject decides when to give the exams and they are called module exams. Super different from Fatima, if you ask me. Haha. But yeah.

Sana di ako masyado magulo. Hahaha. Goodluck sa medicine!

Anonymous asked: Hi ate, plan ko po mag med this year, hopefully, Kaso slightly discouraged po ako kasi wpa ko po is 80.57% lang. May chance ba ako? thank u

You have good chances of getting into good medschools kasi they base mostly sa NMAT grade mo. Also, some schools don’t care. Hahaha. Sa Fatima and beda, they don’t. But I’m sure you want to go to UST of UERM. Not exactly sure what their grade requirements are. But I still say go for it. Take the NMAT and go apply to all of the schools you want. If you want to go into medicine, then please do. :) Mahirap lang talaga pero it’s super rewarding. I promise. :)

Dear Mr. Aquino,
You may not remember me but we’ve met before.  I can actually name at least 3 times that we’ve met.  The first time was when your mum was in the hospital, God rest her soul.  You were obviously occupied then.  The next time we met, you were running for president then.  It was 2010 and I was graduating from my pediatric residency.  I remember part of your speech then where you encouraged us to stay in the Philippines, be good doctors here, serve the people.  You asked us to prevent any more brain drain than what the Philippines was already experiencing.  Help build the country, you said.
Well, you’re the president now, it’s been 4 years since that day and I’ve held up my end of the deal.  I’ve voted, I’ve been vocal about my opinions and my wishes for the country.  I’ve stayed, when I could have left, I’ve treated the patients, I’ve done my best.  I’ve put the welfare of others before my own and my family’s and I have given blood, sweat, and tears in the service of my fellowmen.  I have done my civic duty and I have been involved.  Most of all, I have helped bankroll the many activities this country has been doing because I have paid my taxes properly, in full and on time.  A quick perusal of my tax history should tell you this.  And in return for all that, I am still characterized as a cheat and a tax evader, a burden to the people.
Never mind that I hardly make enough to pay off all my expenses.  I’m a young pediatrician, considered lucky by many standards, and I’m not one to waste money.  Yet I still am just barely able to make ends meet.  When I pay my taxes, I’m not sure if I’ll have enough left over for rent.  Or for gas.  Or to pay off my vaccines.  Or will I be able to save money at all.  In my line of work, we don’t get retirement benefits.  We either save up and build a nest egg or work until we drop dead.  But I still pay my taxes.  Never mind if a patient who hadn’t paid before decided to pay all in one go.  I swallow and take a deep breath, knowing that that receipt I’ll issue could make or break my month.  I still issue a receipt and pay my taxes.  Because that’s what good citizens do.
So when I open the newspaper and I see that people have siphoned off billions of pesos of my hard earned money, it makes me angry.  When their children use it for a million-dollar birthday party to be with Justin Bieber, it makes me furious.  How many children in the hospital could that party have saved?  How many people could that have housed and fed?  How many vaccines could it have bought?  How many farmers helped?  It makes me sick to my stomach.
AND THEN, this ad comes along.  I’ve known that BIR has issues with the medical community.  I don’t know if it’s some unspoken angst you all have for the vaccinations we’ve given you as children or it’s because of your belief that you won’t ever get sick and have no need for physicians. But this was downright insulting.  To portray physicians as a burden, to make a sweeping statement through this ad that physicians evade taxes and therefore are burdens, is not only irresponsible, but is reprehensible.  Whilst I will not dispute that not all doctors can say this but I for one pay my taxes properly.
I still pay taxes but always with a heavy heart.  And you sir, have not kept up your part of the deal.  I’m not asking for protection, I can handle it.  But because of the continued attacks on my profession, I am now seriously thinking of giving up the practice here in Manila and moving somewhere else (I think I hear London calling).  Good luck with the doctors that are left behind.  The numbers applying to medical school are getting smaller, and those that do graduate will not want to stay around if this is what they’re looking forward do.
Good luck.

ykaramat asked: Hello, I just wanted to know what med school you go to? Also what GPA and requirements does ur med school have? I would greatly appreciate if you could guide me. Thank you for your time

Sorry it’s taken me this long to reply. Well I go to school here in the Philippines and I’m assuming you’re not from here. I’m not really sure how they do it where you are. But in terms of GPA and requirement, it varies from school to school tbh. Maybe my followers can help you! :)

Guys? :)

  1. one bad test grade does not mean a failed class.
  2. an unhealthy meal does not make you unhealthy.
  3. one unkind remark does not make you a bad person.
  4. one cut, one binge, one purge, one fix does not mean being clean is hopeless.
  5. one mistake does not make you a failure.
  6. one million mistakes do not make you a failure.

Reblogging this because I need this.
