Something weird and wonderful happened today as I went to my clinic appointment today. As usual, I went in to see the nurse, but the day she called and asked me to go in early, so I was a bit rushed in a panic to get there on time and not prepared as I should have been. 

Anyways, as I walked into the room, the lights were off and she asked if we could sit in the dark as she wasn't feeling too well from headaches. So, I agreed and as normal she asked for my feedback and how I'm doing, going into other treatments, etc. I noticed she wasn't her normal self, so I asked her about her health condition and what she had treatments she had tried. From that moment onwards, it felt as if our roles had been swapped and I never seen a professional so down and tired. So, I thought she normally helps me and is a great nurse, let me try to help her, but wasn't sure if it was right or if it would help her. I gave her suggestions of treatments I had tried for some of my symptoms and as I knew they can also be beneficial to her symptoms too. I also said some funny things which coincidentally did happen this morning and we're connected to me being there as a patient and we both laughed. I could see her eyes light up and gradually her see her relaxed than before, so I asked her how she was feeling than before and she replies "I feel a bit better". And so did I from rushing around and not being organised for the appointment.  

When my session was over she walked me to the reception and kept hugging me as if to say thank you and I could see I'm not alone with my health problems. Even health professionals have their bad days, but it felt good to see that she had benefitted from a simple thing as laughing and happiness. That diverted her from her symptoms and she was able to carry on better with dealing with me as the patient. Seeing her smile and relieved from her symptoms, made my problem feel less too. I was happy to see her happy. 

So, the point of the topic is, not to get stressed out too much over things we can't control, but when we need help to share our problems with others, either friends or relatives or even anybody that would make you feel better. It helps to feel lighter by reading or watching funny things. I also remember there's been a few past posts about humour on here. 

You/we are not alone, the whole world is in the same boat. 

This shabad came to mind after today:

    • I never said anything about life for Sikhs in the UK in the 70s, I was talking about the present day. I understand and respect the struggles that you all went through to get to the position where you are today. But I hope you all don't lose sight of the fact that the freedom and status that Sikhs enjoy in the UK today is very far from the norm. Sikhs in the US today are fighting battles that were settled in the UK decades ago (and without the benefit of a population density that gives Sikhs in the UK at least some visibility and political sway). But forget about the US. You don't have to go that far, you can just cross the English channel and see how precarious the position of Sikhs is in continental Europe. Thanks for giving details about the grooming issue. Do you think this had to do with Labour being more concerned about the Muslim vote (as Muslims former a larger voting block than Sikhs) or political correctness? Or both? I concede that leftists sometimes go to far with political correctness and "canceling" in order to try to show how "fair" and "unbigoted" they are. I am not going to question your take on the whole grooming issue. You know more about that than I do. But that seems to be a very specific situation in the UK. I stand by my general point that left-leaning people are by far the most likely to support the rights of vulnerable minorities (which is the category that Sikhs fall under almost everywhere).   I don't buy your point about a backlash to "wokeness" at all. I don't think that that is what is causing the growing popularity of far-right movements. The way information is shared and distorted today is radically different from what was the norm not very long ago, and that has been the game-changer that has led to today's division and polarization. You seem to think that if the "woke" people would just be quiet, the racists would not have a "rallying cry". That is simply not true. First of all, those people will ALWAYS find something to complain about. (That has certainly been true throughout American history. If it has been less true in UK history, that is probably because the white British majority did not feel threatened by a sizable minority until relatively recently. See my second point.) Second of all, the complaints of the more hardcore right-wing racists increasingly resonate with the more "passive" racists as the majority community diminishes in size and feels more threatened. And third of all, as I alluded to before, today's media/information landscape will allow for any complaints to blow up and go viral.   Any time anyone from the non-majority community asks for anything, no matter how reasonable, there is going to be a backlash from the majority community. And in many instances, the non-majority community doesn't even have ask for anything or complain about anything to provoke a backlash. Their mere existence is enough. This is what history has shown us.

    • And people want to talk about poverty, look at how India was stripped of wealth. Here 2800 silver bars were taken for ww2 but didn't make it back here. Now that they've found it, look at what they are doing with it. The pillaging is still going on.      Treasure from the deep: Thousands of silver bars that were meant to fund Britain's WWII effort but were sunk by German U-boat FINALLY reach their destination - and will be sold as coins Merchant ship carrying silver from India for the war effort was sunk in 1941 Its cargo of 2,800 bars of silver has sat on the bed of the Atlantic ever since Record-breaking bid to salvage the silver from three miles down a success The Royal Mint is now making the metal into coins to remember the tragedy https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2596785/Thousands-silver-bars-sunken-WWII-ship-sold-coins.html
