駐在さんの妻 are called "駐妻(ちゅうさい)さん”in NY. 駐妻さんに限らず、そして日本人に限らず、自分の国のコミュニティの中から出て来れない人がいます。自分の国にいたときより更に狭い人間関係の中で苦労しているように見えます。

介護が必要な場合、公共のサービスが利用できると思いますが、専門の人に相談されていますか?私の祖父や叔母は家族と暮らしていましたが、週に何日か介護士の方が来てくれていました。迎えの車が来てくれて日帰りでケアハウスなどに行って過ごすこともできると思います。

「患者を待たせる」のは患者の病気にもよくないし、精神的にもストレスになります。こんなにインターネットも携帯電話も発達しているのに病院が変わらないのが不思議です。 ニューヨークのブルックリンの大病院で軽度の障害のある女性が待合室で長い間待っている間にエコノミー症候群で亡...

つい数年前に「どんな薬も体には害がある」と書かれた医師の本を読んで、衝撃を受けました。私は薬は体を治すためのものだから、体に悪いわけがないと思いこんでいました。自戒を込めて、健康を一番管理すべき自分が、自分の体について何も知らないのだと思い知らされました。 食事や医療、あ...

Twice a year back and forth between Holland and Japan is no fun. But you get to see your parents which is priceless.
