Daily Prompt: In a Crisis

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Honestly evaluate the way you respond to crisis situations. Are you happy with the way you react?

Whenever there is a crisis situation in the family I try to find the best possible way of dealing with it. I’ve had these situations more than I care to count, each one was different and the solution of course had to be according to the seriousness of the situation.

My husband was not very calm, he’d get extremely anxious, which was not always good for him, considering he was a heart patient.

Once one of my daughters was crossing the street in the evening, a motorist hit her, he claimed he did not see her, her left shoulder was hurt. As soon as my husband heard it he immediately had angina pain. I explained to him he must stay home, I’ll take the daughter to emergency. He stayed back, we went to the emergency waited for hours before anyone came out.

Sometimes I feel the word ‘EMERGENCY’ is a farce, you go to the hospital no one seems to take you seriously, they take their time, they are happy to let the patients wait, because they have a sign up which says, “minimum time  to wait is at least six hours”.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post. I deal, on a daily basis, with all manner of crises and emergencies. They can indeed be very challenging.

    All good wishes,


  2. I think part of the problem with the emergency department is that many people use it for routine care, wasting resources. When I was in a bike vs. car crash four years ago, there was no wait for me in the emergency room. (Though, I think after they determined that I was stable, I waited.)

      • I indeed got immediate attention from an ambulance. Also four years ago, I had suffered a fall on Masada in Israel, and went to the emergency room in Be’er Sheva to get staples in my arm. Thankfully, I only waited about 80 minutes, because my trip’s medic was able to stop the bleeding at the spot. (Yeah, I know this is probably too much information :p)
