People all over the world are dieing
I want to believe, I close my eyes
All that I know is that I am still breathing

I am fragile and alone
A gallery of broken hearts beyond repair
All I can do is keep breathing

I want to trust in more, more than just goodbyes
Who will sooth my worried mind?
My thoughts so undefined
All that I know is that I am still breathing.

What if your eyes close before mine?
I need to believe in something more divine
Maybe just, I don't know, I won’t die alone
To worried of the unknown
All we can do is keep breathing

The Story from her mommy "Olivia was diagnosed in May 2008 with Type 1 Diabetis which means she is insulin dependant.
We have been battling since last year to get her levels under control and well still no luck.
On the 20th of Jan 2009 she had hypoglycemia and a pediatric stroke to which up to today we still dont know the cause of , she was hospitilized on the 22nd again with another hypo and while in hosp she had another 2 .
Her body is struggling to cope with the low levels and thats why she keeps on collapsing.Everytime she gets an incident like that the damage gets more and more.
We where told by her specialist that the only thing that will be able help Olivia is an insulin pump.
Our M/A refuses to pay for the pump and also for us to upgrade to a better option eventhough her specialist has spoken to them personally.
The pump costs about R20 000.

This is more or less the whole of it."

Crocs are dead

Well almost......

Crocs seem to be losing popularity but
It's not happening quite quickly enough for me, of course, but my eyeballs aren't being assaulted by Crocs quite as often as they were last year, and if that's not a reason to be thankful, we don't know what is.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it :)

Course of reasoning

Argument between me and the man

Him: she puked
Me: ah shame man, Clean it up !
Him: (in annoying raised voice) I am cleaning it up
Me: Ouch let me just go find my head
Him: If you find it bring it to me, cause I lost mine a couple of times today and I need one
Me: *blink blink blink*

Oh the joys

Being disagreeable

“Yes, we are all different. Different customs, different foods, different mannerisms, different languages, but not so different that we cannot get along with one another. If we will disagree without being disagreeable.” J. Martin Kohe quotes

Mannerism is like a house with out d├ęcor, a shop with out any products, life would be comparatively less spicy without it. Mannerism helps us choose our friends and the people we would like to be associated with. Which bring me to the point of this post.

On an online community for example, there are tons of women ( or people ) each with their own mannerisms and not all of them click. Although I hate the word click ‘cause it sounds so clickey. Let’s rephrase. Different individuals with their own peculiarity of actions and/or manner of speech. They are bound to rub each other the wrong way. All of us have potentially irritating mannerisms which are likely to be exacerbated under stress for example

We also tend to adopt other people’s mannerism to fit and/or to be apart of something. Because lets face it everyone wants to be accepted. May it be a word or a phrase or a quirk or a gesture. Most of these makes us who we are. Some people mannerism can scare you off from the word go and others will be way more inviting.

So to all my online friends, I am a mediator, I never take sides, except if you are my BFF which doesn’t somme happen. All I want to say is, next time before hitting that damn submit button, think twice, your mannerism may be irritating the kak out of someone else. Don’t take people to seriously, life can’t always be that serious especially on the internet where you go to take a load off and relax

I can go on, but bottom line: I love my online friends.
And their mannerisms too. Even though they don't define them, or even come close to being WHO they are, they definitely make them unique.
