I had a very lovely job : empowering patients about their disease and treatment choices, as an adult Nurse Practitioner of one of the biggest insurance companies in the world. It was a challenging and difficult job, yet, I Iove it very much.
The remuneration package was top notch, with 6-figure basic salary with bonuses galore, and free trips for educational days. It was a job everyone would love to have , but , with the right credentials and experience.
But, came a supervisor so new in the field, she treated patients like numbers. I always fought for my patients even if I worked for that insurance company. I cannot stand people whose priority is their pockets than patients.
I cannot stay in a company whereby my ethical values clash with their philosophy and company policy. A human being is more valuable than money in my pockets. I cannot fight city hall anymore, I had to leave, or I will blow the whistle.
It is sometimes better to be at peace, than to be right.
I am just lucky, I was able to retire early and did not even miss my salary. My husband supported my decision, of course, he knows I am right all along.
As per my experience with wiki, it is not a reliable source of history nor information. It is an online encyclopedia that is outsourced and can be manipulated by villains like snakes and termites and now the evil boy.
It can just be edited by any Dick and Harry that comes along. Good or bad edits still does not make it reliable. I will no longer donate to that wiki anymore. Some admins are nice, but some are not. I will no longer waste my time online with that wiki.
Some people are very serious to vilify me, and even removed history just to make me look bad. They have changed a PATAS wiki several times but had been reverted to the original post.
How can you trust something that can be changed by a single stroke of a computer? Most nasty and malicious edits are done in the Philippines, but have been removed by wiki. Pretty much akin to FB incidents, they have also removed those pages that vilified me.
Some proof of the history much better than wiki: They cannot be altered, nor changed as time goes by.
Always tell the truth, so that you do not have to memorize your answers.
I cannot swallow to be friends or to be associated with people of low caliber: sociopaths, pathological liars, scammers, back stabbers, low life, scum bags, opportunists, sex offenders, and drama queens.
At this day and age, I will choose whom I will associate myself with. No more being nice. I am realistic. I have learned my lessons well.
My words are evocative, so they say. But , I am only responsible for what I wrote, not for your feelings. Your analysis to my post is a pronouncement of your predicament, not mine.
Indeed sociopaths are akin to leopards: never change their spots.
I am right all along to detach myself from such dire and muddy situation.
The pharmaceutical industry is raking millions from consumers and patients.
I was once a medical representative in the Philippines, promoting branded medications made in Italy, instead of generic meds. It was a very lucrative job as I have my own car, living allowance, bonuses, on top of my basic salary. But, I was always wondering why are these drugs very expensive?
I am now on the other end of the spectrum.
Very few branded meds have no generic counterparts, thereby, generic can really be utilized by those savvy patients and consumers.
I am quite fortunate to be also a prescriber, giving me the authority to change medications according to the patient’s pockets and ability to pay.
Believe me, most branded medications can be replaced with generics. Stop paying 200 – 500 USD co-pay when it is only 7 -20 USD using the generic med.
There are ways to save funds for medications by simply looking for cheap alternative and looking for coupons that can lower your co-payment.
I saved 500 USD by simply enrolling myself in a new product for dry eyes. Imagine that.
Please stop being taken advantaged of by pharmaceutical industries and doctors or health care professional that only prescribe branded drugs.
There is a way to save. Google is still your best friend.
