It was an honor

Paul from Pukete

“We wanted to help people
We were smart and driven
We loved science and physiology, humans and disease

So we made a commitment

“We wanted to help people
We were smart and driven
We loved science and physiology, humans and disease

So we made a commitment

We signed up

It was an honor

We read thousands of pages

Attended hundreds of lectures

Pulled all-nighters

Took more exams than we thought possible

Finals week felt insurmountable

But it didn’t break us

It made us stronger

We learned statistics and biochemistry

Immunology and pathophysiology

We mastered genetics, virology and pharmacology

We read scientific papers and learned how to dissect them

Papers, not videos

It was an honor

We came running when you needed us

Literally, running down the hallway

To the ICU, the trauma bay, labor and delivery

I need help, you said

We can help, we said

It was an honor

There were moments that we thought would break us

Moments that drove us to journaling, to therapy, to nightmares

Broken babies.

Paralyzed children.

Dead pregnant mothers with three kids at home.

The wail of a mother whose son just died.

We bent but we did not break

We returned because you needed us

And we could help

It was an honor

Then there was fear

Fear of walking into our place of work

Fear that we’d be killed by going to work

Fear that we’d kill a loved one because of our work

There were tears and sleepless nights and anti-anxiety medications

But you banged your pots and pans

You sent us pizzas and called us heroes

You needed us

We could help

So we wore our masks, and our gowns, and our gloves, and our goggles

We decontaminated ourselves before going home and isolated ourselves from our families

We almost broke

It was an honor

How quickly the joy turned to defeat

Elation to rage

You’ve learned to do your own research now

You know better than we do

Gaslighting is your language

Your selfishness is astounding

You don’t want our help when we ask you to stay healthy

Yet you arrive at our doors begging for help at the end

You stole our resources

You hobbled our ability to help those who did what they were supposed to do

You killed our patients by filling our beds and using up our ventilators

We can’t help any more

You broke us

There is no more honor”

Kia ora neighbours,

What has been some good news in your neighbourhood that's happened during the lockdown?

Kia ora neighbours, we're getting a lot of stories about Covid-19 saturating our newsfeed and the media as of late and we're keen on helping put a damper on that. We'd love for you to tell us some of the more light-hearted stories that you think deserve a shoutout.

Maybe it's a community hero that's been helping out those that are self-isolating, something you discovered while out exercising in your bubble, or something you're doing to help pass the time.

Let us know in the comments below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Hamilton Press.

As our clients are likely to be aware we will be continuing to operate at Level 3 until further notice.
As an essential service we will still be open and available to look after you and your pets however modifications on how we operate will remain in place.
Fortunately all of our staff have had at least one covid vaccine injection several weeks ago and the team will complete their second in the next few weeks.

Points our clients need to be aware of:

-Please make appointments via phone or online booking through our website.
-Level 3 lockdown now means we need to limit any face to face contact at our premises so please be prepared to be seperated from your pet if we need to examine your pet away from you or run diagnostic tests. Dont worry we care for them just like our own.
-We are able to supply medications and food but please call or email to order them in advance and when you get to the clinic please call us from the carpark to let us know you are here to pick them up.
-As an essential service it is required that you please wear a mask when visiting our business. All staff will be wearing masks.
-We will be spacing out appointments to try and limit contact between people so we may contact you to slightly change appointment times if necessary.
-If you are unwell or have been in contact with someone who is unwell please stay home- if your pet is unwell please call us and we will make a plan to get them seen that keeps everyone safe.

And most of all, be kind and stay safe let's get through this again together!

Confused?

NumberWorks'nWords Hamilton Rototuna

To is a preposition with several meanings, including “toward” and “until.”
Too is an adverb that can mean “excessively” or “also.”
Two is also pronounced the same as to and too, but it can’t be used instead of either of them because it’s a number.

Did you know 1 in 4 New Zealand adults will suffer from a mental disorder or distress at some point in their lives? When they do, let’s make sure they don’t have to go it alone. To create safer, more caring communities we need to not only look after ourselves but those around us as well.

For the month of September, we want to come together to share ways to boost mental health and well-being. For example, you could host an online catch up or quiz, call a neighbour who lives alone, challenge your family and friends to try a new hobby or move your body more to improve your own well-being. If you or someone you know is going through a rough patch, don’t forget you can call or text 1737 anytime for free support from a trained counsellor.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re looking out for your well-being and helping others with theirs this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz
