O is For Operation

This is a story that my mom told me over and over again every time she sees me, about the circumstances in which became my life destination. To put it bluntly, how I became a handicapped!

According to mother, I was a big girl, healthy, and strong for an 8-month old baby. In fact, I was bigger than any of my siblings at that age.  My older sister and I both got sick at the same time, and we both had symptoms of the cold/flu.  A family doctor was called in, and without any physical examination, he gave each of us an injection to lower the fever.

The Way It Was and Is

It is unknown as to why certain people take into their head that they are more superior to others, and that they have the right to hit, yelled, or mistreated other humans. Surely some of the rich earthy possessions might put them in a better advantage than the poor, but still that power should not be abused by any mean.

Panicking or Hypertension?

Have you ever waked up in a manic stage as though you don't know what date it is, or what you suppose to do? I have, every freaking morning! I woke up in a rush, with my heart pounding so hard, and my mind was buzzing as if it was in a speed car race.

What is it? I don't know! I just wake up in a panic, and I have to talk to myself to calm down, slow it way down so I take a breath. Am I panicking or do I have hypertension? Whatever it is, I sure don't like waking up like this.

N Is For Negativity

Growing up as a handicapped person, my life was surrounded with negativity and it was mostly verbal. Never did it occur to me how damaging and poisonous words could do to one's soul. When the adults in my life constantly told me that I would grow up a beggar, a whore, a useless person, an unworthy human to be loved, my mind molded itself along this line.

I couldn't bring my drooping and sagging head up to look at the world. My brain believed that I was truly a discarded item. Thus, the tug and pull between what I was or who I was residing as a heavy burden in my own soul.

Unconventional Theory

In an effort to understand why Fairy Mother couldn't sleep, the Dust Fairy put a theory into place. Being over fifty, she found herself dozing off during the day even just for a few second of shut eyed. Naturally, the human body grew tiresome and weary.

Pretty Pink Dahlia

Gorgeous Face of Dahlia

Looking through my flower archives, I just want spring to hurry up and arrive. Too many gray days sag my spirit, and cause me dragging my feet.

M Is For Manner

I was taught to have an impeccable manner at a very young age, and anything less than those unbending rules would lend me into big trouble.

  • Respect your elders 
  • never talk back 
  • only speak when addressed
  • say please and thank you 
  • neat appearance at all time
  • no elbows on the table
  • treat everyone decently

The Contradiction Tug

There were two main things that Fairy Mother is afraid of: being alone at night, and dead. It was not as if she hasn't stayed all by herself before. She has stayed alone in California before July's Wind brought her back here. However, once she set foot back in Michigan, with three fairy children available, Fairy Mother played the scary game.

Light My Candles

These flowers look so much like my last post: Faces of Little Pink Flowers, but they were actually different! These have a bit of similarity to orchids, and they looked like candles to me.

My First Clipboard

Finding a way to organize what I like on the internet has just become easier and simpler with clipix. This is a new website that offers an organizing tool by creating as many clip boards to my liking. Each clip board has each own category, thus, I can find what I want in just a click.

L Is For Late

I have no idea why, but for some reasons I am always the early arrival for everything. Whether it is to an appointment, or to a party or to the airport, I prefer to get to my destination before the time than to come late. This behavior some time annoys me and others since I tend to get jumpy if we are not on the road. I can't seem to relax.

Unless it is out of my control, such as when someone is driving, then I am forced into accepting but my nervousness stays insane at the same. Looking deep into my soul, I can't find any relation to this odd behavior.

Lenovo Multimedia Remote

This post brought to you by Lenovo. All opinions are 100% mine.

Lenovo -Most of us have a deeper appreciation for technology than we care to admit, particularly for our computer and internet, as they bring a wider world to our finger tips. Although I am not a savvy user, I still like to see gadgets that tend to make life easier.

The Lenovo Enhanced Multimedia Remote comes to mind as one device that excited me. Running on two double-A batteries, with no driver to install, this device allows you to operate your home theater PC from 30 feet away.

K is For Kneeling

One of the most popular punishments for the children in my country was kneeling! Some people opted for the use of violence by beating the living day light of their victims, and some preferred to send the kids on their knees. Obviously, the later punishment was very rare and often carried out after the physical torture.

Kneeling for me was much more difficult to accomplish due to my handicapped. I was the only one that rather received the beating than kneeling. Once the beating stopped, it was done. It was over! Kneeling, however, was a dragging process and prolonging pain, mentally and physically.

My right leg had damaging muscles, nerves and veins, so I had no control of what it wanted to do or where it might end up. I could not kneel straight as my right knee ran from side to side when I tried, and I had  to resort to a slouching position. Thus, the torment, yelling, and bashing made this punishment impossible for me to comply.

I did wish so that I could kneel straight and normal as others to end my own suffering! Humiliation alone was more than enough for one soul to bear when no explanation could be understood or acknowledged the difficult situation I was in. My aunt's demand for straight up kneeling on my part was never meet to her satisfaction. Therefore, the result was after the beating, there was the kneeling, and then there was more beating.

Thinking that I was a rebel, my aunt's creative idea was to have me kneeling on the peel of jack-fruit in the middle of the afternoon sun. The pokey pointy part of the peel outside the jack-fruit cut through my skin and I bled, but I still could not kneel straight. In church, she often smacked the back of my head toward when catching me in a slouching position, and yes, I carried a big bump on my forehead every day like it was a normal part of my body, as it hit the pew.

I was not fond of kneeling in any shape or form or type. The nightmare of kneeling in my childhood scarred me to this day!
