Istiak एक गुर्दा की जरूरत है

    क्या यह मुस्कुराते हुए चेहरे याद है? मैंने अपनी पोस्ट में इस्तिक के बारे में लिखा: https://joycebowen.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/am-i-a-racist/   बार-बार, मैं सुविधा स्टोर में जाता हूं, और काउंटर के पीछे एक स्कॉलिंग इस्तिका होगा। मैं तड़के और मुस्कुराया, और अंत में पाया गया कि Istiak मुस्कुराते हुए इन तस्वीरों में महत्वपूर्ण रूप से चित्रित...

Issy’s smile

via Istiak Needs a Kidney I saw Issy this morning.  His smile is brilliant.  He told me he showed his mother this post, and she told him it was a good omen.  He has accepted that he will probably die and that I do not doubt with the small response to this post.  I consider Issy...

Tears in My Heart

I try to deal with issues that can touch all of us at some time or another. Here is one of mine that I’m sure others have dealt with I dance between self-preservation and helping a loved one. Of course, if that loved one does not want help and the issue encompasses one’s life, self-preservation... Continue Reading →

A beBee Celebration

  Too early? Not in my dreams.  And I have a recipe for you. I took a tumble the other day and cracked a rib, etc. I’m an opponent of painkillers, so my way to deal with the pain is to sleep—a pleasant recourse as my dreams have been vivid and filled with pleasure. I woke from... Continue Reading →

Survivors VS Victims

'This Side of Life'

Survivors VS Victims

I’ve been sick for weeks; groveling in tributes to my body in the form of chicken soup and OJ. Lowering myself to this status began when I attended a speaking engagement on sexual assault and rape at a local college. I coughed mightily throughout the presentation. By the next day, both the experience and illness had thrown me into my bed. I felt beaten.

Now—I wrote the previous paragraph a week ago. I was grabbing at wellness in my mind, but my hacking and spewing has driven me to the emergency room once since. I’m still under the weather—struggling to write.

My speaking engagement to UMass students–Kappa Delta Phi NAS, Kappa Upsilon Chapter Sorority sisters—still has me reeling.  I spoke about sexual assault and rape. After five decades of experience, I found myself challenged—revictimized yet again. As I tried to decimate my experience with the system, there were those in the audience who countered the…

Istiak necesita un riñón

Parece que obtener un riñón es difícil de vender.

Istiak necesita un riñón. ¿Recuerdas esta cara sonriente? Escribí sobre Istiak en mi publicación: https://joycebowen.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/am-i-a-racist/

A menudo, iba a la tienda de conveniencia, y había un Istiak frunciendo el ceño detrás del mostrador. Yo engatusé y sonreí, y finalmente encontré ese sonriente Istiak representado tan prominentemente en estas imágenes.

Siendo enraizado en la mente de un periodista, pinché y presioné la personalidad de Istiak hasta que finalmente reveló un secreto. Istiak está en Diálisis. Sus riñones han fallado. Había tenido presión arterial alta no tratada, y le han quitado los riñones. Ahora entiendo la dificultad que experimenta al convertir esos labios en una sonrisa. Sospecho que está cansado con demasiada frecuencia. Ha estado en Dyalisis durante dos años.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee escribió un zumbido que era propicio para el cuidado, cómo ayuda tomarse un momento, prestar atención y preocuparse. Traté de encontrarlo y fallé miserablemente. Amigo, eres tan prolífico…

Istiak Needs a Kidney

Looks like getting a kidney is a hard sell.

'This Side of Life'

istiak kidneyDo you remember this smiling face? I wrote about Istiak in my post: https://joycebowen.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/am-i-a-racist/.

Oftentimes, I would go into the convenience store, and there would be a scowling Istiak behind the counter. I cajoled and smiled, and finally found that smiling Istiak so prominently depicted in these pictures.

Being rooted in the mind of a journalist, I poked and prodded Istiak’s personality until he finally revealed a secret. Istiak is on Dialysis. His kidneys have failed. He had had untreated high blood pressure, and it has taken his kidneys. Now I understand the difficulty he experiences upturning those lips into a smile. I suspect he is tired far too often. He’s been on Dyalisis for two years.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee wrote a buzz that was conducive to caring—how it helps to take a moment—pay attention—and care. I tried to find it and failed miserably. Dude—you are just so prolific with your mind-bending Buzzes.

I’ll let…
