65 Red Roses Eva Markvoort Blog to the end.

I saw this girl's story on CNN.com I went to her blog and red a few posts. Stories like this with people's courage really inspires me. I saw her story on the internet only a few minutes ago and she has already impacted my life. It reminds me we all have the power to make a difference. We all have our problems, issues, pains, but we can't forget to live passionately with love and hope. We all take things for granted, and when we do we must appreciate the little things to remind us of what is important.

pressure change
Mar. 22nd, 2010 at 12:49 AM

making the effort this evening to sit up in a chair
good to change positions
stretch different muscles
sending air to different pockets
mum asked what i miss?
i miss walking in and out of buildings
the feeling of air pressure change when you enter or exit a building
i miss getting in and out of cars
how your view changes when you sit at a different height
change really
i miss change
now, it is all the same
seven weeks....there are no transitions
i miss transitions
from one place to another
which is strange really
because now i hate change
i can't stand change and yet i miss the transitions
i hold onto who ever is near
since when am i clingy?
i grasp onto
annie in the morning
jackie and robin in the afternoon
dad in the evening
maman all the time
episodes of projectile vomiting
hours of gasping for breath
waves of nausea lulling out into
hours of sleepiness once the meds have hit
leaving me daydreaming about stepping out of this room
just getting up free of tubes and plugs and walking out the door pushing open doorways skipping down the street
breathing free free
