The POPO principle :
Anyone who follows office politics will be familiar with the POPO principle.
POPO ( Pissed On and Passed Over) refers to a hardworking individual whose integrity and work ethic get him nowhere, who finds himself overlooked for rewards and promotions, sidelined by craftier colleagues. Partly because he's too straight and naive and partly because he just doesn't know how to play the game,
Mr POPO ends up as a spectacular underachiever.
People seems to take me for granted. I feels cheated, even a little bewildered. I am not aware what is required in the present moment.. I don't know how to play the game in the present circumstances. The situation has changed. Accordingly my goal & required actions should change.But I am not doing so. I am letting people Pissed On me and Passed Over me.

Severe chest pain (like squeezing, or a heaviness, or pressing) at the central or left part of the chest, lasting usually for at least 20 min. The pain may also radiate to the left upper arm, neck or jaw. The pain may feel like a heavy weight on your chest, a squeezing or tightness around the chest, or indigestion/heartburn. Mild chest pain or discomfort in the chest, rather than sudden, crushing pain, is the most common symptom of a heart attack. however, many people, in fact, have a heart attack with little to no chest pain. Symptoms can be quite different from person to person, may appear in mild or severe forms, and may appear and recede and reappear over several hours. Some people can suffer a heart attack after showing only mild symptoms, or no symptoms at all
My wife has gone out to pickup my kids from school bus stop.
No one is at home.
I was working on my computer since 9 Morning at my home office. Its about 1230 noon time. Suddenly I fell down to the left side from the chair without any warning.
There was a fullness and heavyness in the heart area and breathlessness, perspiration on forehead and hands.. I went to the nearby bedroom and lie down on the bed.
And I took one sorbitrate tablet under the tongue.. And I called my family doctor s.k.chuahan. He told me to immediately go to hospital and take two more sorbitrate at 5 minutes interval.
I tried my wifes mobile, but she has not picked up phone. Than I called sayeed bhai over mobile and asked him to come immediately to under my home balcony .Told him that I have to go to hospital immediately as I feared something is wrong..
Sayeed bhai was nervous while driving the car. I told him not to worry. I asked him to take me to the hospital gate through which only ambulance is allowed, I know where that gate is.
OPERATING ROOM (21.04.2010.) MORNING
Than they started putting all gadgets on my body and Inserted IV set etc.
The right groin area is washed and disinfected and then numbed with an injection of local anesthetic. A small incision is made at the right leg entry site, and a short plastic tube (sheath) is inserted into my right leg artery. The catheter is inserted through the sheath into my blood vessel and carefully threaded to my heart or coronary arteries. I was feeling like ant bites inside my veins.
Contrast liquid is put through the catheter to help my blood vessels and organs show up better. I felt a warm HOT FLASH as the liquid is put into the catheter. Also get a headache .Doctor said it will go away, don’t worry.
The procedure took approximately 45 minutes, not 15 minutes as he said.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE AT ICU
The nurse who is attending to me gave me a lot of water to drink. An increased fluid intake promotes excretion of the contrast medium, reducing the risk of toxicity (particularly to the kidneys). She gave me a bedpan to urinate as I was urinating very frequently. I wanted to urinate myself. She told me that its just 12 hours, after that you can move your right legs where the cut is made. Till date time she will do everything for me. She told me, don’t worry uncle, this is our job. I told her I cant urinate if she stays near me and watching me. She obliged and went out. Than she takes away the urinal from between my legs and cover me with clothes.. All my privacy is gone to her. She did all this infront of my wife .I asked my wife to be near me all the time.I gave my wife a lot of trouble but I feel confident when my wife is near me.
The nurse never allowed me to move even to eat in the first day. The nurse will feed me tablets, coconut water, salad, fruits, oats always by her own hand. She did not allow my wife to do anything.. I feel like I am back to my childhood days with my mother.
