april 15, 2012 randomness


A hundred years ago today, the "unsinkable" Titanic went to the bottom of the ocean, 1514 people losing their lives. For as long as I can remember I've been fascinated by this story, and for as long as I can remember I've been afraid of deep water, and very sceptical about ships and boats. Yes I travel by boat sometimes, but I'd rather not. Although I've never let myself become absorbed by its destiny the story of Titanic somehow resonates deep inside of me. What fragile lives we live. And despite all the technical wonders nature always have the last word.

They showed the mini-series Titanic on TV here today. As much as I adore Julian Fellowes other series this was just a too short, abrupt, anticlimactic series to be really good or interesting. Which is a pity of course, given many things including the great actors.

~ My recent appointment with Dr Feist sadly did not lead to an instant approvement of my strange and wearying "cold". Needless to say, I don't like it when you get to the doctor, a specialist, and she acts baffled at the symptoms and then the tests show nothing obviously out of order. It was a nice chat, I got some medicine and if things didn't improve I was welcome back. Not what I had hoped for. If I may self-diagnose I'd say it's a combination of pollen allergics - I, who have never ever been allergic to anything ever - and a cold, which has drained me completely of energy, concentration and mojo.

Given all the medicine I'm eating now - another I, who basically never eat medicine - I'm hoping things will perk up again. Soon. I'd lie if I'd say I'm looking forward to the rather imminent Helsinki-trip right now, hopefully we can postpone it for health reasons. If the medicine doesn't work.

Just to blog about the crap things in life often make them seem less crap, make things better. Perhaps, hopefully this is such a thing that will indeed improve by blogging.

~ Malte was back to the vet for a check-up on Friday, he's basically his old self since the orderal, but apparently he's showing signs of testucular neoplasms, poor thing. Thus needing to be neutered soon. Eight plus years of not having a single ailment, now they line up. Poor sweet little loaf guy.

Another thing to worry about.

Life sure isn't only smooth sailing, and it of course isn't suppose to be, it's the rough patches that make us become better, more compassionate beings, but really, sometimes it would be nice to at least have a few connective months of good stuff only. Please. Since there will always be things that need sorting, dealing with even if life is in turmoil, smooth sailing months will thus be very appreciated, life, allowing one to get  into routines.

I chose Prosit as my business' name for many reasons, one being it means "may it benefit you" in Latin. At the moment I have *tad* difficult to see how all this will benefit anyone, me included. 2012 began so darn well, apparently I just shouldn't expect it to continue going well uninterrupted for too long.

Kittens, bobbaloos and spring flowers are always good for soul and mind though.

So hoping things revert to plain sailing soon. The bobbaloos, the fur babies and the loaf dog will always help though.

I hope you feel better soon. Sometimes these setbacks give time to regroup. Cute cute kittens in previous post. Wishing you all the best, Cheers.

Is not the expression, "It never rains but it pours", It does not solve anything, but certainly explains things. The new kittens are a good thing, and I am sure your weather is beginning to look like Spring...I know that everything will turn around soon. The fact that you are feeling under the weather, is not something that helps the situation.
(nothing like stating the obvious)
Keep your chin up, things will turn around soon, Best wishes....

I'm so sorry to hear that both of you are still sick. Why you don't try with homeopathy, especially for little bread?
I know enough for drugs to prefer homeopathic pills. One of my cats now is with sprained foot and we use that method.

I totally understand you! I want only one absolutely happy week!

I understand the feeling of not being able to get better. I got sick over a month ago today, had a fever for a week and a cough that refused to be calmed. It took me two weeks before I even felt close to normal and I still can't seem to shake the annoying cough. A lot of people have had the same thing around here. I hope you get to feeling back to normal soon. Spring is just too wonderful to miss. I missed out on the very early blooms of my tulips while I was sick.

I hope you feel better soon. My best wishes, take care.

Har inte följt ämnet eftersom jag själv varit så upptagen, och dålig, men har du kollat allergin hos allergolog? VC-tester kan visa fel, och t ex visa att man är allergisk mot jordnötter, fast det eg är ett falskt positivt svar, som eg tyder på att man t ex är överkänslig mot björkpollen.

Så var det med mig, och så är det med många.

Sen kan man vara överkänslig mot något tillfälligt, något man inte skulle få allergisk-diagnos på om man testade sig. Detta för att för många omständigheter samtidigt satt ner försvaret och man får en allergisk reaktion för att man tippat över kanten.

Så är det ofta för mig också. Därav utläggningen (att jag rent empiriskt vet att det kan se ut så).

Krya på dig, hursomhelst!
