I’ve been thinking how phobia against poverty could be put in the same closet as racism, or even homophobia. I don’t think it’s that long of a stretch. It’s a similar kind of social phobia. And it’s rearing its ugly head too often these days.

When you lose your health to the point when you end up in hospital, there is a sense of being imprisoned, not only by the lack of health, but also by being in a hospital. They treat you like a plant, although you feel like a vegetable.
I dislike so much to be late that I usually take too much time ahead to be somewhere. Sometimes it doesn’t work, though. The other day I even forgot to meet. I was devastated. I end up apologizing for it. I think I apologize too much sometimes. Apologies don’t make up for time loss. I wish they did.
