Perspective, plain site…


Life is a rollercoaster chocolate box that dishes one out a random mix of stuff and sometimes pulls back from you entirely and leaves one confused and bemused.

However at least with age one gains a little more perspective and the ability (as a woman) to control (albeit not entirely) one’s emotions. And this is like pure gold. The ability to step back (so to speak figuratively) and “cognitively” digest things and “prepare” a cold clever response that may well be unexpected and certainly perplexes the individual perpetuating the patriachy.

The rollercoaster is often a fixed item over which control is not had. However it seems that later on in life one is able to “hover” above the chaos for milliseconds that are little bursts of miracle moments.

Plain site also becomes a more plain. Which seems crazy but somehow the blinders of youth really do just that and as the time and clock tick the site improves – at least the sight of the soul 🙂

And for this I am grateful 🙂peace

NHI and what is to come…because it IS coming!


The NHI will certainly be coming whether or not it is yet another train smash as we have experienced with every state run institution or not. Will it be a better south africa ? That remains to be seen.

What is unequivocal is that it is coming and it WILL be implemented. Does that make me want to run away. Yes, yes and yes. Am I going to ? No, no and no. I have personal reasons for staying but I do believe that we also need better health care for the majority and NHI may well aid in a small way to some kind of “fairness” when in the past there has been gaping holes of “unfairness”.

I would like to start a new movement of positivity and seeing the opportunities in south africa.

Face it, there is no perfect place in the world. People are the problem. And they are everywhere. However there are also unique wonderful people who are everywhere.

Also in this place we call home with wide aching gaps there are opportunities for both financial prosperity as well as kindness prosperity – which is all we go to the grave with.

So will NHI be a challenge. Yes it will. Does it mean the end of health care for the wealthy or relatively wealthy (bear in mind there are folk who survive out here each month on R1000 a month). No, I hope not. Is there opportunity to assess this situation and find a new way regarding the epic challenges that face us like diabetes, hypertension and the complications thereof ? Yes. I believe necessity is the mother of invention and as health care practioners it is yet another to re-evaluate and use our God given brains to come up with a palatable solution.

Kindness is one of the few things we take with us. And death is a certain guarantee.

So let’s start there and move outward as the ripples on the sea when a stone skips over the surface. South african’s are adaptable at large and we are able to see and do the positive, come with me.

Basal Iq -it’s here and yay of yayness


plerTandem t slim have basal Iq on offer. It has arrived. The great wonderful benefit of the algorithym is that it has very simple rules and is robust in it’s ability to prevent lows suspend insulin and recommence as soon as the trend picks up.

One of the biggest conundrums with insulin is not enough results in high sugars and too much even just a little too much results in lows and no two days are ever the same for diabetics.

This new offering offers a solution.

And if you know what lows feel like and do to your functioning you will recognise the benefit. For longterm health this is a huge benefit. All the new trials confirm that TIR – time in range is what saves : eyes, limbs, kidneys, hearts and brains.

Thanks to ethitech for bringing this to market.

Yay yay yay for patients.
