(6) One Mother's Story
-The child-raising and child's illness -things I can't forget-
 
 It's been 10 years since I moved to Japan. Now, I have an 8 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. For me, it's not very easy raising children in a foreign country. I find it especially difficult when my children get sick, and I am always confused what to do. It makes me very sad that I can't explain my child's condition to the doctor very well. I am also very frustrated when I can't understand what the doctor tells me. It is inevitable that my children will get sick, and I have taken them to the hospital many times. It's not that bad if they have a cold, but it is very difficult when the condition is more serious and they may need hospitalization.
 I am Taiwanese. But I'm often told that I look very much like a Japanese person. When I take my children to the doctor, they quite often don't notice that I am a foreigner. They speak so fast that I can't understand. I try to ask them to explain it to me again or write it down. I can understand Kanji a little bit, but sometimes I hesitate to even try when the medical staff seems busy or unfriendly.
 I've been to the hospital so many times since my children were born. One of the hardest experiences was when my oldest child had a very high fever for the first time. It happened in the middle of the night and I took her to the emergency ward. However, we had to wait there for two hours. I asked the staff to see her, but they told me to wait because there were more urgent cases. I couldn't understand this. My child had temperature of 40℃ but she wasn't an emergency case. As well, the doctor provided no medicine for her, but just told me to keep her cool at home. That was it. I was very shocked. I needed help because it was the first time I had ever experienced these things and I didn't know what to do. I wished there was somebody who could guide me. I wished there were experienced mothers from the same country who could teach me what to do. It's difficult understanding one another in different languages and it made me very anxious at that time.
