Too Shy: Today’s compilation 5/4/22

A reminder to those who are too shy to ask
that bliss only comes when aspersions are gone
from a too humble mind that a certain one knows
and a banshee who’s out on the lawn.
Meek is not bad when a maiden is seen
pouring milk from a bucket’s small spout
Keep up the good work and encourage your mind
Quietness honors the Peace felt about.

A few days late but what the heck, right?

Find it here

Is it compassionate for medical professionals to keep people on tenterhooks waiting for results, particularly if the diagnosis in question could be really bad news; but in general too?   No, I think it is more compassionate to get to the facts so then something can be discussed as far as moving forward. I hate being in Limbo and although life is always sort of like that, if you know something I should know, just tell me and let’s get on with it.

Wouldn’t it be kinder to just shut up and order the tests and whatever to find out a firm answer before stressing out the patient?   In your honest opinion please. I think if a doctor has real concerns, enough to do extra testing than the patient should know. Yes, it is more worrisome, but I would rather have the bad news while already thinking it could be bad rather than thinking everything is fine and all of a sudden whacked with bad news. I hate the whole “what do you want first, the good news or the bad news?” Just give it all to me and put a rush on that. I have no patience for slow talking, dragged out to save my feelings, conversations. Just being honest!
