Just had a coffee by myself in a coffee shop and read the paper. Felt really strange as it has been such a huge fulle on year.
I had the honøur of an interviewer coming to my house to interview me re: my gynae work as a woman who is doing things outside the norm. Apparently it will be up on the National Library later this year and is going into the history books which is fantastic to know how in 50 years time how things have progressed from year 2011.
Confirmation from Royal Australian & NZ College of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Australian New Zealand Women’s Hospital endorsing International GYNae Day.
Another moment was standing in foyer of King Edward Memorial Women’s Hospital Perth and watching a Medical clinician walk past me with a GAIN T Shirt – we didnt know each other, I just smiled as he walked by thinking for 17 years I had waited for that to happen.
Also Jeane Hailes Foundation Melbourne had great results from their promotion of the IGAD using GAIN logo.
Family Planning Canberra and Margaret Kalms (artist) had art exhibition.
Esperance Quilters Women joined in celebrations also.
So all in all people are seeing the GYNae light
Cant sleep its 4.30am lots going on at moment, global womens summit next week speach to sort out, GYNae day sorting out, Telstra award interview next month, new baby grandson arrived this week in UK, finding funding to present at Aboriginal womens group in country all very exciting but keeping organised is the biggest challenge. Plus my 83 yo mother needs attention also. etc etc. So having got that out of my head I will turn off the light and go back to sleep. Good health to all. Kath
Hi Everyone had a full on intensive 3 days but what I gain ed was fantastic. It showed me I have to move on with my life, being more positive proactive and leaving my past baggage behind. Thanks to Landmark I plan to do the next level so I can find more ways to promote the International GYN Awareness Day. Wish me luck. Look out here I come.
Thanks to all who support the cause.
You may remember that Noel was the first women that I felt a strong connection with, as we had both walked the same path. I remember going to her home and the power that we received from each other, just knowing that someone else understood, was incredible. This is what I feel is so missing from the sisterhood. The connection, acceptance and support that we were able to give each other will be deeply missed.
I know that she is watching over me and I will keep on keeping on whilst women are suffering in silence.
