covid-19

I started social isolating couple of weeks before the government announced it. My thoughts were that my life is connected with my nuclear family and extended family and if I kept face to face appointments I will definitely put them at risk. I also notice patients coming for appointments and saying that they just had a head cold or sinuses were playing up and I had no way to check if it was anything else. So best thing was stop face to face consultations.

When I stated on-line sessions, there was a lot of resistance but as time went by they warmed up to the idea and I had had some practice in working online as well.

Insight

I finally learnt how to get rid of unwanted posts

Also I finally sorted out my website. I think I have got everything. If I am missing something put a comment and I will try to fix it.

I have now officially left Mackay and am in Canberra. For my patients in Mackay, I am offering Skype sessions but unfortunately they are not covered by medicare. 

I miss Mackay, I never thought I would say that. 

What's going on!!!!

I must have confused people that I work in Canberra and Mackay. Well... Its true, I work one week in Mackay and the next in Canberra. Why am I doing this?  Well I have to get to Canberra for family reasons and I am building my Canberra clinics and winding my Mackay clinics. I expect the transition to take 3-months, but things don's always go to plan. So stay posted!!!!

Resignation from BEAT

I resigned from BEAT on 2 August 2013. My last day is 30 August 2013. My Team farewell is us all cooking and eating together. I will miss that. Not to mention all the morning teas. BEAT was were I learnt the ropes. What I turn out to be is a credit to MY TEAM and MY SUPERVISOR (Cathy O'Brien)

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is a yearly event in the Muslim calender where we fast between daylight hours, which means we do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. The fasting is a way to understand the effects of hunger and thirst so that we can empathise with the less fortunate. It is also the month where we concentrate a bit more on spiritual sides of things, reflect on the way we live. This is the month where we also donate 2.4% of our savings with the less fortunates. In Islam, we are told that God will take an inventory from us of our access spending, so a lot of Muslims buy their cars, clothes jewellery this month .
