Wasim Akram: I won’t let diabetes bowl me out

November 27, 2011 Leave a comment

 

Wasim Akram, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the peak of his cricketing career, has made it his mission to educate people on how to live a normal life with the condition. He tells Friday about his fight against the disease through awareness campaigns such as Landmark Group’s ‘Beat Diabetes’ walkathon in Dubai.

Like Wasim, we should start learning how to live normally with our condition. While hyperhidrosis is actually NOT life threatening, we should be PHYSICALLY more active in raising awareness campaigns.

Sucker Punch – Closing Remarks

August 1, 2011 Leave a comment




The film ends with Sweet Pea rescued by the bus driver (revealed to be the Wise Man from Babydoll’s fantasies) when the police tried to stopped her while in line to board a bus to Fort Wayne. Before the screen goes black, Sweet Pea uttered in the background:

and finally, these questions: the mystery of whose story it will be.. of who draws the curtain.. who is it that chooses our steps in the dance.. who drives us mad.. lashes us with whips and crowns us with victory when we survived the impossible.. who is it.. that does all these things..
who honors those we love with the very life we live.. who sends monsters to kill us.. and at the same time sings that we will never die.. who teaches us what is real and how to laugh at lies.. who decides why we live and what we will die to defend.. who chains us.. and who holds the key that can set us free.. IT IS YOU.
you have all the weapons you need.. Now Fight.



True indeed.

Saving Face

May 26, 2011 6 comments


Early last week, one of my Indian office mate (Abdulhamid) received a warning letter from our HR that he was untidy and smelly, and threatened to apply salary deduction. While sobbing, he showed the letter to me and mentioned that ‘this is your payoff for all the good things you tried to share and exerted to this company’. With caution I asked him if that was true. He directly told me that he cannot avoid it because he has a sweating problem. Gosh.. only then I knew that somebody right there from our office share the same sweating problem like me!..

Immediately I told to Abdulhamid not to lose his composure; and assured him that I myself will assist in solving this issue. It’s really a long time I tried to bypass my office mates’ negative comments about this condition. Now this is such a relief for me to validate acceptance of our situation.

I wrote a separate e-mail addressed to our Administration and HR manager that they are wrong in labeling Abdulhamid as ‘untidy’. Aside from telling them that their accusation has nothing to do with his work performance, I told them that he did not choose to experience being untidy; in fact he cannot avoid being untidy because of his sweating problem. I told them that he has body and axillary hyperhidrosis, while I have palmo-plantar hyperhidrosis.. Finally i emphasized to them that they have no idea how we suffered trying to adjust with this condition.

After that, I informed to Abdulhamid what I did. I waited if the HR will call us for further reprimand but interestingly, the week almost passed and we never heard anything from them. I asked Abdulhamid for anything and said he never heard anything also, neither the HR opened the topic again as if nothing was circulated..

Whether they will accept us or not, what really matter is understanding the condition which can be possible only by raising the issue into public awareness. An understanding that life has imperfections; but the way we live makes it perfectly wonderful. And a trust that if the situation is beyond our control, we can rest assured with our Creator who has the total control of everything when he said “be still and know that I am the Lord..” I encourage you to please share your similar experiences to reinforce all of us.


An Appeal to Our Fellow ETS Side Effects Sufferers

April 25, 2011 2 comments


“This friendship site is for all HH individuals whether with ETS or not, no exception. This weblog has no intention whatsoever to impose guilt on the side effects brought by ETS surgery. In fact, we are here to embrace you; we are all struggling in the same HH boat, no exception. We are all affected at different levels, and devastated at varying degrees. Yet I am pretty sure we are all struggling for one big desire: freedom from suffering.

In the eyes of our Creator, we are created equal. Each one of us, whatever the circumstances is, balances the entire wonderful force of life. We are all one with our Creator, we are not separate, and there is a reason. That is why I learned to accept that despite this condition, there lies the beauty in it.. I learned and accepted that we came forth with this condition as an advocate of unconditional love. That is, to accept and love us just the way we are..

This is the time of awakening and enlightenment. Let us come into a realization that we are all precious despite this condition; that freedom and wholeness really abounds; that we really have something to contribute to this force of life, just like the mystery of autistic and with cerebral palsy..

Let us get awaken to the acceptance of our Creator…”


On Happiness

April 23, 2011 Leave a comment


We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren’t enough and we’ll be more content when they are. After that we’re frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice vacation, when we retire. The truth is, there’s no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?

Your life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway. One of my favorite quotes comes from Alfred D Souza. He said, “For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life”. This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, reassure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time.. and remember that time waits for no one..

So stop waiting until you finish school, until you lose ten pounds, until you have kids, until you start work, until you get married, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until your car or home is paid off, until you’ve sobered up, until you die, until you are born again to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy..

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

I Believe

I believe-
That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe-
That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and, you must forgive them for that.

I believe-
That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe-
That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe-
That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe-
That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe-
That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe-
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe-
That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

I believe-
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe-
That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I believe-
That just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

I believe-
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I believe-
That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe-
That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I believe-
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe-
That just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other,  And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.

I believe-
That you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe-
That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe-
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I believe-
That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you – you will find the strength to help.

I believe-
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe-
That the people you care about most in life are the essence of life.
Tell them today how much you love them and what they mean to you.
