I am now a believer of the theory “Use and Disuse”

CAUTION: This is an “EMO” post

No, Not really an “emo” = sad post… Well, more of sentiments…

What I am feeling now?

My brain is rusty. It’s declining (as well as this blog). My neurons are becoming stagnant.

I forgot a lot of Nursing stuff that I learned during my undergrad years (especially during my review days) and I seriously want to enrol myself in another review session. I mean, if you would ask me anything now, I will definitely answer “Sh*t! Alam ko yan dati eh. Nakalimutan ko na…” It’s depressing right?

When I was still studying, if you would ask me something about nursing, I would instantly answer back even when I am asleep. Seriously.

I am now a believer of the theory of “Use and Disuse”. Ooopsss. Let me get that clear. If you don’t use that particular knowledge, you forget about it. You might think that “If you don’t use your brain, it will shrink until it disappears…” well, partly. JK.

At some point, that made me feel less of myself. I should know that. I must not forget that. Confidence level diminished again.

I want to study Nursing again and most especially, I want to gain a lot of experience. I want to hone my skills. I want to be a professional “professional”. I want to learn. I want to lessen my mistakes in the area. I want to be confident. I don’t want to experience the tremors and the palpitations anymore but I know, I will be able to do that in time. I am still a novice. I hope to gain more experience and learning spontaneously (‘cause trainings will end—meaning to be a staff nurse sooner or later, for now) as I live through this career.

Ok. Enough now. Thank you for letting me waste your time. 😛
