The Window

Received this interesting story through email.  If you are as old as me, having read through many stories, you would figure out what the ending would be, halfway through the story.  

This is just like the story of the girl who helped her blind boyfriend regain his sight.  Haven't read that yet?  Ok, I shall post it in a few days' time.  Right now enjoy the story below, and contemplate what you want to do with your life.

Change Your Thinking

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking..

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room's only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake

Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall..

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.

Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.

'Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .'

The origin of this letter is unknown, but it brings good luck to everyone who passes it on.

Do not keep this letter.

I hope you will forward it to all your friends to whom you wish blessings.

Malaysian English Best Lah!

Who says our English is teruk?
(Teruk means terrible.)
See evidence below.
Ours is simple, short, concise, straight-to-the-point and effective.

Britons: I'm sorry, sir, but we don't seem to have the sweater you want in your size, but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you.
Malaysians: No stock.
Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone call for me a few moments ago?
Malaysians: Hello, who call?

Britons: Excuse me, I would like to get by. Would you please make way?
Malaysians: S-kew me.

Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this door?
Malaysians: Woi, Can go in ah?
WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE Britons: I don't recall you giving me the money.
Malaysians: Where got?
Britons: I would prefer not to do that, if you don't mind.
Malaysians: Don't want lah.

Britons: Excuse me, but could you please lower your voice? I'm trying to concentrate over here.
Malaysians: Quite lah!

Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment..
Malaysians: Die lah!!

WHEN SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONGBritons: This isn't the way to do it. Here, let me show you.
Malaysians: Like that also don't know!
And this is my contribution:
When politicians talk to you
Britons: Ladies and gentlemen, may I urge you to vote for me?
Malaysians: You scratch my back, I scratch your back!

And best, to argue or quarrel, use Singlish:

IV Vitamin Therapy For Cancer Treatment

IV vitamin therapy for cancer treatment

IV vitamin therapy is an intravenous method that supplies the much needed vitamins and minerals quickly and directly to body cells. This is the fastest known method available. IV vitamin therapy has been found effective in fighting cancer, especially as an adjunctive therapy to the other available cancer treatments.
Our body needs nutrients not only to survive but also to maintain a healthy disposition. Our body cells depend on the food we eat. All the minerals and vitamins are sourced from the intake of food. IV or intravenous vitamin therapy is a method whereby essential vitamins and minerals are injected into the veins providing instant supply of concentrated nutrients directly to the millions of cells.
Under normal conditions, our body extracts vital nutrients from the food we eat through the normal process of digestion and absorption. However at times, the body is not able to extract these essential nutrients in a most efficient way, resulting in insufficient nutrient supply to our body cells. When this condition happens, our health will be affected. The cells will not be able to receive optimum supply of nutrients, and this will result in deterioration of cells. The whole body system will be affected as insufficient nutrients are supplied to the various parts of the body. This situation will open doors to illnesses as our body immune system will be weak. 

It is when a person suffers from this problem that IV therapy is recommended. With IV therapy, it is possible to inject high doses of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream without causing any severe side effect, which would otherwise be with the conventional oral intake.

Myers' Cocktail

IV therapy is getting more acceptable nowadays. The most well-known IV therapy is the “Myers’ Cocktail”. It is an intravenous vitamin nutrient concoction formulated in the 1970s by John Myers, MD, a physician at the Johns Hopkins University. This IV protocol contains a combination of vitamins and minerals targeted to help treat a range of ailments and increase energy level. This “cocktail” has been prescribed for various illnesses amongst which were chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, angina (chest pain), infections, and senile dementia. The standard Myers’ Cocktail consists of vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium.
Following the successes of the Myers’ Cocktail, there are now various variations of the nutrient combinations to treat different illnesses. The latest development is the IV protocol called IVVC + B12, which stands for intravenous vitamin C plus vitamin B12. Dr Linus Pauling a two-time Nobel Laureate was a staunch supporter for administering vitamin C as a healing agent. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that strengthens the immune system to fight against bacteria and viruses. IVVC has been proven to be very effective for treating common cold, flu, and sore throat. Patients have been found to feel better in a matter of hours after the IVVC administration. Vitamin B12 is included in this protocol in that it helps in the formation of red blood cells, as well as improving the health of nerve tissue.

IVVC+B12 For Cancer Treatment

The most promising advance in IVVC+B12 is for treating cancer. It is found that IVVC therapy destroys viruses and cancer cells but not harming the normal cells. This IVVC+B12 therapy seems to improve the effectiveness of metronomic chemotherapy while at the same reduce its negative side effects. A report done by The Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning, International, Inc., Bio-communications Research Institute, shows that IVVC is effective against cancer. Under the title “Intravenous Ascorbate as a Chemotherapeutic and Biologic Response Modifying Agent” the report confirmed that high dose intravenous ascorbic acid (IAA) as an adjunctive therapy for cancer patients has improved patients’ sense of well being, reduced pain, and in many cases prolonged life beyond prognostications of oncologists. It further stated, which I quote:
“Twelve years ago, we used infusions of 30 grams of intravenous ascorbic acid, twice per week, and found that metastatic lesions in the lung and liver of a man with a primary renal cell carcinoma disappeared in a matter of weeks. At that time we believed IAA was useful for patients with cancer solely through two biological response modifier mechanisms: increased production of extracellular collagen ("walling off") and enhancement of immune function. We subsequently reported a case of resolution of bone metastases in a patient with primary breast cancer (1A) using infusions of 100 grams, once or twice per week.
We found that ascorbic acid is preferentially toxic to tumor cells suggesting that it could be useful as a chemotherapeutic agent. Preferential toxicity occurred in vitro in multiple tumor cell types. We also presented data suggesting that plasma concentrations of ascorbate required for killing tumor cells were achievable in humans.”

General conclusion

Cancer treatments have still a long way to achieve a high success rate. However, with new advancements in research and development into new methods of curing cancer, we hope that in time to come cancer patients will have a better chance of being cured. In the meantime we need to take good care of our health with healthy nutrition, regular exercise and maintaining a happy and relaxed disposition. By the way, IV vitamin therapy can be used periodically even in healthy people for enhancement of overall well-being. My personal opinion is that so long as we are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle, there should not be a need to go overboard in our health regime. I always believe in moderation. To me the most important factor is to maintain a happy and relaxed lifestyle. Then our body system will function without stress and our immune system will be strong enough to prevent any serious illness to strike.
