My first encounter with children of a lesser God.

My first encounter with children of a lesser God.

Postby Pyrpolizer » Sat Mar 18, 2017 4:06 pm

About 15 years ago I had some job to do at Athalassa’s hospital, and I thought that would be a 5 minute job so no big deal. I knew one of my nephews worked there and I really hoped I wouldn’t come across her. I knew she wouldn’t be very proud seeing her at her work environment, and I just didn’t want to cause any embarrassment to her, as I actually feel she’s like a sister to me.

Anyway by the very first minute I got in there I was approached by someone asking me to give him cigarettes. I gave him some. Then he wanted me to give him 2 CY pounds….
After that he just stacked on me, he was following me everywhere, and I started feeling scared.

Luckily the director saw him shouted at him so he finally left.
Then the director escorted me to the place I was supposed to inspect passing me through an open plan area where there were nurses and some patients. Passing though there I saw my nephew caring a patient. She pretended she didn’t see me, although she immediately blushed, so I pretended the same too.

I inspected the place took a few notes and all I wanted was to just leave as I was already very upset from the whole atmosphere and the things I saw …Patients in critical condition, some paralyzed too, others shouting, others talking to themselves, the nurses begging others to take their pills, one nurse shouted at a patient who took the pills and thew them straight on us, I felt the place was a hell…

On my way out I saw my nephew again, our eyes crossed, so we couldn’t pretend we didn’t see each other anymore. She introduced me as her nephew to the director, and we all got invited for a coffee. Oh my lord, I thought this adventure would never end…

She also invited some 3-4 other colleagues and we all ended up in a rather shiny and nice looking place having our coffees. We started chatting, while all of a sudden a young guy asked me if I were upset. I said "quite honestly yes, in reality all I want is to get out of here". He said he can understand me. It was exactly the same for him for the first 2 weeks he got a job there. But after that, when he realized with what kind of people he had to deal with he said, he felt really lucky to have such a job. Those patients he said are all "psychoules" [souls of children(?)/innocent souls(?)]
I told myself "what the heck are you talking about, are you serious?"
In any case I never went there again, I send some other people to do the job.

This incident got stuck in my mind for a really long time. I am a suborn person and never stop rethinking of strange things that occurred to me, trying to solve the puzzle.

I eventually solved the puzzle, and fully understood why the young man was right, when I started actively participating in Radio Marathon.

And the moral of this story is… Pyro is as interesting as the mold forming on a tossed out Christmas pudding!

interesting.

(never mind GR, if i may suggest, you don't have to comment to the posts he writes)

My life has been not normal. It never has been it seems. My only regret is that i have no friends from childhood, and while there may be thousands of people who will have a fond memory of me, i have always understood that when people come to me it is as a last resort. It is a hard life knowing you are alone except for those who have no one, else. In any case, from an early age, i learned, "the way", and though i am not religious, not a good Christian as i've been told, i serve Lovingly.

Indeed, caring for those who cannot care for themselves, dead or ill, is a challenge, and it takes grace. In my mind that lady you call sister is a hero, remember that, if you say, "i couldn't do what she does", that more loving be, to her. Few will take the time to think about the work, how hard it is on her, except perhaps her colleagues who are in the same boat. A simple recognition goes a long way in such a heart.

It is a state of mind to serve. Fear God, i say, there is nothing else to fear, only to overcome.


...but i do go on, trying to make conversation.

More or less I knew the main points of your life RW, from previous references of yours.
There's only one thing I couldn't figure out. Your alias says you are "homeless in Canada". What does that really mean, are you really homeless or is it figurative. Please dont't reply publicly to this question rather please send me a PM.

As for this GRRRRR character I have to make him expose his real self, that's what he needs, that's why he calls himself "get Real" after all.
The more he gets exposed the better for everyone.

If your nephew is female then she is your niece ;) And why was she embarrassed? She is a nurse, right? Is Athalassa hospital for crazy people or retarded?

Been a nurse includes duties that you yourself would rather feel embarrassed, if watched by a relative.
Despite of that many people don't feel comfortable when a close relative visits them at work.
In any case I am not sure of the reasons.
I have no idea whether either there or at the "Steliou Ioannou foundation" a few blocks away, separate the patients as per your description.
From the things I saw it looked mixed.

Again without been sure I think they only separate those who might be potentially dangerous to other people.
