Girl interrupted!

You know (probably only if you are a girl) when one day - out of the blue - everything just becomes too much. And then, you start crying for nothing in particular but rather everything particular. Yes, that is how my day started today. (I call it stress relief) I have realised (against my original thought pattern) that, in life, we just can't rationalise everything. I don't think people understand how significantly my thoughts have changed through my experiences! And, in a way, it is about allowing myself to feel sorry for "me" and all that have have faced.  So there!

When I saw this sticker (www.zazzle.com) while looking for brain tumour exhibition materials, I thought - perfect that is exactly right although I admit I am tired of fighting. You know the saying " I am sick and tired of being sick and tired" - yip I understand that more than you can imagine. Don't you ever feel that "Dear God, I REALLY need a good year all round"  So that was the chat I had with Him this morning. I just want a life that is simple, stop with the money and the work and the physical limitations. How on earth can we breakaway from these things? It is physically not possible, but how do I stop it from messing up my mind and my spirit. Well I look forward to someone's answer because I certainly don't have it and no package from the sky has arrived yet with the answer on a plate! All I can say is "Humans really have messed things up for themselves and others" now we have to go though a whole period of recycling our humanity - challenging!!

Tick Tock Tick Tock

Well the conference is two weeks away and the list is still very full! We moved to a new house last week and I must be honest, I was completely exhausted. Hopefully we can settle for a while this time! Every time I feel the tiredness, I have a small panic as the memories are brought back. I felt as though a seizure was coming on last week so just decided to stay at home...I also have to go for the normal MRI in a couple of weeks ...Grumble :(

I have really been noticing what I have been eating. Every meal that we put into our bodies is either helping us or is toxic. Lately, because of all the busyness, I haven't got around to getting my smoothies and can physically feel my skin drying out. No there is no scientific evidence for this logic but to be honest I don't really need anything scientific to understand how my body works. Oh yes, according to CANSA it seems as though 90% of cancers are caused by external factors and not genetics... So, perhaps, I am not too far off in my assumption about my early years falls? No need to hypothesise though, unless it may help the researches in finding a cure.

I did a talk on Saturday to close on 400 people (I was one of 4 guest speakers) and it was really fun. It was very casual as I didn't feel like having tears all over the place! There was a plastic surgeon before me telling us about all kind of things depressing about ageing... Botox included. So I opened up my talk with "Botox was originally designed for serious migraine sufferers and later the facial benefits were noticed for cosmetic purposes. So if I ever have Botox it will purely be to avoid headaches and not because I think I am looking older!!"
