LIVING WITH A CHRONIC ILLNESS

This post is available in English and Romanian

Boala, fie ca e vorba de o afectiune acuta care supara doar pe moment, sau de o suferinta cronica de durata, ajunge inevitabil sa ne fie partenera de viata tuturor. Unii sunt norocosi si ies repede din relatia cu Boala. Altii raman legati pe viata de Boala intr-o relatie toxica si plina de neprevazut. Cine a avut ghinionul sa se imprieteneasca cu Boala in Romania, stie ca are toate sansele ca suferinta sa sa se dubleze din cauza lipsurilor din sistem. Lipsuri care de ani buni sunt ignorate de cei care conduc Romania prin rotatie. Doar chipul si numele sunt diferite. In esenta, ei sunt aproape toti o apa si un pamant. “Animale” politice (de fapt a-i numi asa este o jignire adusa regnului animal) care nu cunosc omenia si empatia.

The Disease, be it an acute affection that manifests itself for the moment, or a long time chronic illness, is inevitably sometimes a life partner for all of us. Some are lucky and leave this relationship quickly. Others, learn to live with the Disease, in a toxic and restless relationship. Whoever had the misfortune to befriend a Disease in Romania, knows their suffering can be doubled by the lack of conditions in the health system. Shortages that for too long now are purposely ignored by those who rule Romania by rotation. Only their faces and names are different. Essentially, they are one and the same. Political “animals” (calling them this is an offense to the animal kingdom) that do not know humanity and empathy.

LIFE DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS

Este incredibil cat de repede s-a schimbat felul in care traim, in mai putin de cateva saptamani. Acum o luna, tocmai ma intorceam dintr-o calatorie la Madrid. Totul mergea perfect la munca si deja imi planuiam urmatoarea vacanta. Acum, ma simt ca si cand m-am trezit intr-un univers paralel, in viata altcuiva.

It’s strange how quickly life took a turn this year. A month ago, I was just returning from a perfect trip to Madrid. Things were moving along smoothly at work, and I was planning the next vacation. Now, it’s like I woke up in a parallel universe, walking in another person’s shoes.
