About Me

Monday, May 31, 2010


I was shadowing a patient out in the community today. Apart from having Unipolar disorder, this guy also has M&S and mobilise by wheelchair.

The conversation....

UP Man - I have been wanting to ask (referring to my wedding band) you're married?

Me - Yes.

UP Man - You don't look it.

Me - And how do I look. Can you tell me how married person suppose to look like.

UP Man - I don't know, but I don't think you look married.

Me - Now that's very interesting. I don't usually like to discuss my personal life, but today I'll make an exception.

UP Man - Why wearing the ring?

Me - Because technically I still am married and another silly reason is that it cost so much to be abandoned in my jewellery box.

UP Man - I don't understand the term 'technically'.

Me - Well, when laws and papers still rules, I'm afraid you are going to hear a lot of that.

UP Man - So, you are technically married and practically not?

Me - That's right.

UP Man - You prefer the latter?

Me - Not really.

UP Man - Describe.

Me - I wish someone had told me that loving other people is a gamble. You may gain love or worst, enemy. I think I may create an enemy for myself, just because the gamble I took didn't paid off well.

UP Man - Okay..talk to me like I am stupid...

Me - You met someone, you fell in love. You like them..love them for a while until the person made it impossible for you to feel the same anymore. So, you had to break it. In my case, I had to break the marriage. That can cause heartbreak for some.

UP Man - But people change. What is the surprise in that?

Me - Well, if I am married to a BMW and after few years fancy a Renault, that's a different story altogether.

UP Man - So you changed your mind ?

Me - I don't know. Relationship with another thing that is capable of changing is very complex. You can end up disliking them completely or die unhappy. I don't like both, but relationship is a battlefield.

UP Man - That's a poo. Why bother in the first place?

Me - We always have the urge to hurt ourselves....but like I said, with another person is always a gamble. We don't know what we going to get, how we going to end up.

Dan bus pun sampai.

If you decide to be not technically married anymore or for the ring to be kept in a different jewellery box, please consider disposing the ring at e-Bay with a handsome discount.
