Will u still hug me?

Started my SSC(student selection component) in North Manchester this week..which is on infectious diseases! Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Salmonella...u named it, we have to learn it:P Something uncommon in the UK..but it's picking up due to the many immigrants coming into this country:)

Teachings were quite good...just last Friday, we had this pre counselling HIV test session from this tutor who has been diagnosed positive HIV for years..but willingly he shared with us the fear he has, the hard times he had to go through..rejections, discriminations, humiliation and loneliness etc. It's a stigma the world has labelled them. but in fact, it's not THAT infectious if u see the estimated risk of transmission to different types of exposure! People just think touching by a simple touch to them, u will get infected! And thus, people tend to isolate them and labelled them as DIRTY..It really got me thinkin...Will u still hug me if i'm HIV positive? will u still be my friend?

Had an opportunity to sneak into the breast surgery theatre in North as well:) Since we knew the surgeon personally, he let us in to observe. So took a few hours off from ID and went to see a radical mastectomy being in REMOVAL of the WHOLE breast...this woman had breast cancer and the best treatment was to remove the breast...It's quite a horrible scene. i think for woman's like treasure..but unfortunately, breast cancer is a KILLER and the only option is to remove it! wahhhh...when the whole breast was removed, all we cud see was the flat pectoralis chest muscle underlying the ribs..really RADICAL! and the worst scene was...3 surgeons who were ALL MALE, cutting and diathermised the breast tissue..dun b offended, but it's just a sad scene, seeing the MAN handling woman's breast and they cud never understand the traumatising fear the woman has to go thru, and sadness of loosing a breast...haih...fate of a woman i guess:(

Happy BIGGIE day to the WOMAN, Sarah Ng!
TQ..for all the ups n downs, the joy and pain, the love u shared:) U're a blessing and God sent to me...take heart sis, Jesus loves u, i love u toO;)
