Dat 240

It’s the okay to complain sometimes – that’s what I learned today.

It’s 8: 11 PM on day 240 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a polony and lettuce sandwich for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – after thirteen LONG days a kind heart by the name of Ellen (@LoveThatMax on Twitter) and Adrian Klein  – someoone I don’t even know  made donations –  thanks to both of you for your contributions you don’t know this but I actually prayed
for a donation 🙂 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV, feed myself grapes for dinner, continue reading A Purloined Life – the first of two books in Stella Cameron‘s Charmed and brush my teeth once more.

Today as I sat in front of the laptop trying to breathe through the pain in my hips I remember thinking I’m not going to complain, I’m going to complain, I’m going to complain but after a short while I gave in and thought I hate being in pain most of the time, I hate the fact that my father doesn’t take me anywhere, I hate the fact that my mom thinks I do nothing even though I get up every day and try to make a difference, I hate the fact that people see an invalid when they look at me…I hate cp and just like that my anger was gone. Do you hold things in until you feel like you’re about to blow?

Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://www.twitter.com/nisha360

if you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/nisha-varghese/nishavarghese

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.

Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!

    I’m very happy for you, Nisha.

    Now that a prayer has been answered, what will you do to give thanks for the answered prayer?

    Hi, Nisha,
    Sometimes it’s good to blow up and let that anger out! But I believe your wonderful intelligence and passion for changing the world will help you overcome many obstacles.

    How are the disability services in SA? For example, is there any public transportation available to you? Are you able to move about in your wheelchair by yourself? Do you get good medical care to help you with your pain? I hope I’m not being too nosy…I’m just interested to know how things are in your country.

    So glad you’re making progress towards your goal!

    Have a good Thursday!

    My parents drive me to all my appointments and as for pushing myself in the wheelchair it’s taking a little time but I’m learning how to do it 🙂 The medical care here is FANTASTIC but there’s nothing they can do for my discomfort it increases and decreases depending on the weather because when it’s cold I have low blood circulation.

    Yours truly,

    PS. I don’t think you’re nosy in fact I think it’s nice that you care so much about someone you’ve never even met… it says a lot about you as a person 🙂

    it’s good in shopping malls and stuff but not so good in flats that have more than one floor.

    Yours truly,

Have something to say about this post? Please leave a comment I'd love to hear from you
