My Request

Today is my first day back to the Blogit website after nearly 1 and a half months...one and a half months of fighting for my dad's health after he took ill again. After 10 days in I.C.U., and fighting a brave battle, he passed away on 13 June. I feel as if I'm just recovering from the numbness of... Sign in to see full entry.

I stand strong...

I stand strong Against the wind that threatens to throw me off my feet. My tears are invisible in the rain pounding hard upon my head. The ache inside does not leave. In spite of this, I hold my head up, move my feet... One footstep, then another, then still another step. I long to sit down; give... Sign in to see full entry.

Have you ever heard the saying that the most permanent thing in life is change? It is very true, especially in a crisis situation. One is forced to get out of one's comfort zone; forced to venture into the unknown. Fear and anxiety always accompany this - perhaps it is the fear of letting go of that...

Because of what I have been going through while supporting my sister in her healing, I learned to be empathetic and understanding of others and their situations. However,I discovered that somehow, I was not very kind or understanding towards myself. I expected from myself what I would never expect... Sign in to see full entry.

Asking for help

Asking for help has always made me feel uncomfortable in a sense - well, I have always been able to ask for advice, knowledge or service when I know that I deserve service because I am someone's client. What I have had trouble with is asking for someone to help me because I can't cope - at times, I... Sign in to see full entry.

We all build up certain habits through the years - sometimes we have done all the same things and behaved according to a certain protocol for so long, that we lose track of why we are doing what we are doing. We just seem to perform the actions mechanically. Through the years, when my sister was... Sign in to see full entry.

Looking Back...Going forward

One of the dangers with any crisis in life is staying in that moment of fear or terror - reliving it, remembering it in such vivid detail that you can't shake the images from your mind. There is definitely logic to the statement: you cannot go forward while looking back. I don't believe that looking... Sign in to see full entry.

Plough on!

"You can only do your best," a friend reminded me a while ago - I was so frustrated that I could not accomplish everything that I needed to do each day. I felt like a failure. My friend reminded me that I am not in a normal situation; that I am coping with a challenge that many others are not coping... Sign in to see full entry.

Words and thoughts are sacred...

When my sister was diagnosed with lupus, we never spoke of her being sick - instead we spoke about her healing. We continued speaking this way even when she was so ill that many people questioned whether she would survive. I knew she would - her spirit was undaunted and intact! Her sixteenth...
