Hmmmm

imageHave you ever wondered why the world hates to say the word diarrhoea.

I was on the phone to my dad today, telling him that Marly-Kate has been poorly with sickness and an upset tummy aka diarrhoea.
It hit me that ever time I have to talk about it I never use the right word, I always change it to upset tummy, green apple splatters, the runs etc etc.
So why is that?
Why can’t I and other people say the dreaded word diarrhoea!!!

Are we so anal that one simple word makes us blush and feel uncomfortable even ashamed.
When really there is no reason what so ever to be, it’s just a word.

I guess it’s the same with women who break wind in front of people.

A few weeks ago, my sister, lifted her leg and farts on her sort of boyfriend.
He laughed, of course he did, it was funny.
You don’t see many women do that.
Brett’s cousin, turns around and bites my sister’s head off.
Told her she’s no lady and women shouldn’t break wind. She went on and on for about 10 minutes.

So why is that, why is it ok for guys to fart as loud as they want, when they want.
So why can’t we?
Why do we hold it in, giving ourself tummy ache and making ourself feel really uncomfortable.
Are we so stuck in the past, that we still have to pretend that women don’t get wind.
Should we really feel ashamed by doing something so natural?

Life for women has changed so much, that we are nearly equals in the workplace, home and in everyday life.
So why is it that there are things that we still can’t do at ease, like fart, talk about sex, or say the God damn word diarrhoea.

We sure do live in a mad world.
Or is it a mans world

Have you ???

imageHave you, ever noticed how the world is so loud even when it’s silent?

Have you, ever felt like your bed is too big or maybe you are just too small to be noticed, to be loved so that you can fill it?

Have you, ever felt broken and certain that everyone has noticed the parts you try to keep hidden — the depression and anxiety that you have fought since you were a child?

Have you, spent your life waiting for someone to notice that maybe — just maybe — they will notice you?

Have you, ever been the person others ask if your friends are single?

Have you, ever stood with one foot out the door so that you can bow out without being notice? Even though you know that no one will notice because you are just not noticeable?

Have you ever felt so alone, that your cries can’t even be heard in the silence of the night?

Have you, ever thought that all these thoughts are just thoughts and maybe just maybe you’re worth something.
Maybe just maybe you have been noticed.
May be just maybe, it’s you that is not noticing!!!
