Sometimes things happen for a reason

I have so much to live up to. I have a great career which can lead me to great things. I have many good things on its way. There is always positive and negative in the world, but if we focus on the positive, we develop as people better.

I wonder what the day will bring today. I am certain will be a day filled with goodness once again and forever.

We need to always reach for the stars!



My way in to this world

Some things take a lot of time finding our way in to the world. As an Aspie, I am trying to find different ways for others to accept my special skills unique to me. Ultrasound is a field where my drive to excitement excels at a rapid pace. I know the field is hard enough. I feel I have made mistakes in my past, but not with Ultrasound. I feel I entered in to a field where some tech’s I meet feel I am not worth their time because they don’t understand the way I do things. Instead of just doing Echocardiography, I wanted to do Vascular Technology as well. Many tech’s seem desperate to want to get in to Echocardiography. Move over and watch a superstar at hand to learn.

As soon as I started doing Echocardiography, I realized I was a superstar. It made me feel good to know I can do something so well. In the back of my mind, my interest of the whole Circulatory system which would include Vascular Technology kept me wanting this as well. To me, I need to see the whole picture including the whole Circulation of Blood in the body.

I realized Vascular Technology was very hard for me. I had to and continue to have to work extra hard at keeping up with the pace of Vascular Technology and the skill set. I became increasingly angry when I could not do it. I am registered in Cardiac and Vascular now. I did it! 🙂 I beat the odds, I think. I still have a lot to go because Vascular Technology is still very hard at times harder than echocardiography by my standards. Although I am getting better at Vascular Technology, I am still a superstar at echocardiography.

I still remember everything I learned from school in Echocardiography and from my clinical/volunteer experiences at Montefiore Vascular Lab and a special someone who taught me Echo. I will seem to remember many things I learned forever. A feature my Aspergers gives me.

Now being an Aspie in this field is the hardest part because Vascular Technology is hard! The truth is it has more to do with coordination which can be a problem for someone on the Autism Spectrum. Many forms of studies lies in Vascular Technology with more than one set of protocols. This can be a problem for somebody on the Autism Spectrum who likes patterns and routines like myself. To do my work, I need to have my categories in my mind burst out at once. For example, when doing a Venous Reflux study, I need to have one hand on the the probe with light touch so I don’t compress the vein and the other hand has to be ready to press the doppler and augment the leg at the same time. If nothing is in-sync, then you lose the picture, lose the doppler, and have to start all over again. It is like a very complicated video game. I compare Legend of Zelda Nintendo Wii game to Vascular Technology while I compare a more simplified game of Nintendo Wii to Echocardiography. I love Legend of Zelda, but it is hard.

Now some of you may be thinking, “Geez, Echocardiography is hard too!” Well, to me Echocardiography is EASY. I can follow a protocol better with Echocardiography. Although I still like to see the whole picture of the Circulation of blood in the body which is why I wanted to do Vascular Technology as well. It is important to always see the whole picture. If I just studied the heart without the circulation, I would be LOST. BTW, I am getting pretty good at some of the things I need to do with Vascular Technology.

I am glad I learned about Vascular Technology anyway. I do really good studies overall. I always hear my friends tell me that I need to speed up for production. I can do the protocols, but I need to think about it more in order to do it. My brain processes certain tasks at a time.

I know this is a long posting, so I will post later on…

My WAY in to this world is following along and I will continue to shine and perform at the highest levels!



What is the reason for perfection anyway? It is blasphemy!

Every one in this world wants perfection in everybody. However, we must love every creature which lives on this planet the way they are and help them along the way. Since every creature is different, there is so much to live up to and eventually make a breakthrough. We live on this planet because we must go through challenges in this world to become a person. There should be more love, patience, and consideration of others. Too many people in this world don’t want to help and encourage, they just want to tell anybody who is struggling “There’s a problem, let’s find a cure, and life will be better.” I don’t believe those people who believe this are being patient like they should.

An example of how impatient the world is; when any one goes out to drive their car in the morning after a snowy night, people tend to feel the need to leave right away without taking care of their car. Unfortunately, when cars are on the road, the snow/ice on top of the car causes much aggravation for the other drivers. What a shame this world we live in! People who want to achieve anything from small to big successes, have to be tormented by impatient people. There is no reason for anybody to not give them the right to go through challenges in life like anybody else. I know the challenges some people go through are harder than others, but this is why they call it a struggle. I struggled a lot in my life. Sometimes we need other people to help us a long the way. Actually, we need many people to help us a long the way like I had.

I really don’t get it, how can any body want a perfect world without struggles and triumph. Some individuals with Autism may seem like they need more help than others and I know it may seem frustrating at times to know what to do, but we must all put our heads together and use our minds to figure out the answer. The more we use our minds, the more we figure out it was not as hard as it seemed to be.

I know I seem upset at the moment because I think the people who are not struggling as much should care more about other people’s individual differences. Every one can do something in this world which gives them pride. I think we need to all learn to be more adaptive and flexible knowing no body is perfect. Wouldn’t perfection be boring?

Think differently about your life by not escaping reality.


What’s in a miracle?!?!?

A miracle comes in different ways and different packages.  Something which is needed at the time to get us to think differently in the world.  We hope each miracle coming forth in to our life is a way to change the perspective which we have been focusing on up until the miracle happened.  A lack of faith and unity deserves a miracle.  Every time we turn our heads, faith happens.  Every time we watch for it, nothing happens.  Miracles happen because the eternal heavens up in the universe want us to know they are still around.

A little bit of faith encourages everyone to be the best they can be. A miracle could happen again sometime where more people will realize the real potentials anybody has inside ready to show the world. No body in the right mind can talk for somebody else. Everybody has a voice whether they can talk freely with their mouth, write, draw, type, play, orchestrate, or by any other means show people what they have in mind. We must all be patient with our lives and with other people.

I read a one line title in the New York Times today entitled, Poll finds;Faith in Obama, mixed with patience. Slowly and slowly more people are becoming patient. This is an incredible breakthrough in human nature. It is human nature to be impatient and greedy, but the fact people are fighting their way to live, brings hope for a better future.

Life is a journey 10,000 or more miles in the making and we just need to believe our lives can get better. First, we need to find unity amongst everybody. Second, we need to accept everybody for who they are. Third, we need to listen. Fourth, we need to help anybody who needs it. Fifth, we need to continue the strength to reveal our true selves unveiling all the masks which we have covered ourselves up with since childhood. Any experience from our past is the past and we need to move on to the next discovery in our life. I really love the book I am reading by Carl Rogers.

I believe Carl Rogers knows to become a person, we need to see ourselves as genuine. A miracle appeared in New York this week which was a way of faith guiding us in to the right direction. A direction forcing us to rethink and plan ahead to be the people who we really are when the United States was born. A new leader comes in to power, I believe this new leader will be the most genuine humble President of our times. I know Mr. Obama might be the President on Tuesday living in the Whitehouse in Washington D.C., and he will have the luxury of any other President, but I hope he shares the luxury since we are all human.

A human being who becomes a dignitary of a great nation of so far and wide in the world takes on great responsibility, leadership, and challenges to make difficult decisions. I just feel his leadership will be the precursor to something better. I enjoy the world stopping for a moment to see the miracles in our lives right now. It shows the unity the world sparks up in a instant moment of flash. The comic hero Flash is the fastest man on Earth who helped fight evil in his stories, the same goes for miracles when we try and fight our way through tough times.

Don’t expect too much or else you will find nothing more will happen. Learn the easy way. I know and I am sure we all have learned the hard way too many times.


What’s going to be left in this world after all these Wars????

Things are definitely not going right when places like the Middle East are at War in the World around us. People obviously are not taking what I say ion this website seriously. Well, may be those people have not read my website currently. I am writing this posting for DMC because I am appalled at the world for their horrible behavior. Every one seems to be at some kind of war lately. Whether with trying to destroy one another with guns and physical fighting, bombs, words, … This is a world of total chaos.

We need to think about how to to work as Team and not as a bunch of people who hate each other. Hate seems to go far in this world as well as love. Love is the interaction between each other to give each other a boost and vow of confidence.

My life as we know it is a life of good things waiting to happen. I know there will always be disagreements and fighting in this world and I should not let this distract me from my life. Unfortunately, not everybody will like one another. In fact, every one in this world will only like the people who do good things for them. People are choosy, people gossip, people spread rumors, people can not live together sometimes. I know none of this can not be true, but what can I say about any one who lives in this world. We pick our battles and I hope the battles we all pick are the right choices. Most of the time we pick bad battles during a time of grief when a feud breaks out. For example, I guess this is why Israelis always had problems with Palestinians.

There seems to be good reasons for anything, I hope, but you never know. I just want a good interaction between individuals and know for every individual who walks by us even if we don’t like them, we are courteous and walk by. We also must thank every one for the tasks we all achieve, some very big like career achievements, prizes, or even to ride a bicycle or a car.

There is so many things a person needs to brush off and be happy about.

Hang in there…we should all be are smiley faces. I happy to be have many people who help me out and every one should be happy about all the people who help them out as well.
