Newsbits and Updates

•October 6, 2016 • 21 Comments
ONE YEAR AND ONE MONTH PAST…after finally settling back in the Philippines. Nothing to complain but so far sooooo good with my life right now. It is not a smooth-sailing life but I am happy and fulfilled! My current work provides me the luxury to travel in the country. Being part of a group of technical people working so hard to ensure our environment is well-guarded from any man-made activities is worth keeping. This is not new to me, but the challenge is to come-up with a study that will not only encourage big investments in the Philippines but also ensure that the impacted communities will benefit in the projects, particularly the indigenous people.
On the other hand, few months ago, I was diagnosed with a multi-level disc desiccation – a common problem that affects the discs located in the neck.  This health condition is not life-threatening but the way my first doctor disclosed my condition, it was a shocking revelation! My first reaction is I am going to be paralyzed – I will be hopeless and it was a 360 degrees-life changing realization! God is merciful and now I am getting better after a series of therapies and of course the moral and spiritual support from family and friends. It will take months to fully recover or maybe it will be there forever, but it is not something to fear about! At least having second and third opinions of my neck problem, it provided me a peace of mind that I will not be spending thousands of pesos to implant a titanium material between two discs, not to mention other expenses such doctor’s fees, medication and rehabilitation.
Until now, I am still in the “state of denial” – thinking that I am healthy, strong and this will not happen to me! But reflecting on it, sometimes we feel that nothing worse will come in our way and it is impossible that this problem will strike us… we are unguarded and to the point that we are feel helpless and the good things we have done are not good enough to save us! This is not the end… God is there for me and He will always remind me to take this a challenge to be a better person to others, a better brother to my siblings, a better son to my parents.
