Sometimes my blog posts is all in Swedish sometimes a mix.
Earlier today only English. But that is a little bit how my life is since FOP came in to ur life in 2001. Pic of my son Hugo who has FOP in the end. (Och lite Svenska i slutet på det här)
The first 3y with FOP all my knowledge about the diagnos was in English (IFOPA). All my questions was in English since the only doctor who had answers to my questions was dr Fred Kaplan at the FOP lab in Philadelphia. But in 2004 I created FOP sweden and today it’s really different in one way… In the other way I do my charity work as IFOPAs IPC representative/FOP Ambassador in Scandinavia. So the past 2y I spent a lot of time learning about clinical trials. Since we suddeny are ”living in the future”. And earlier today I had a skype meeting with a company in the US regarding FOP. So there is still a lot of English in my FOP life.
And my Instagram and Youtube chanel are both in English. So my yoga and handstand is mostly in English.
But then there are days I get really tired of thinking in English. But obviously not today 🙂
It has become easier to switch between the languages. And I like to do it more now when I have yoga, handstand and Polefitness to mix with FOP. The balance of topics in life is much better today.
I am not a person who translate in my head I just switch. And today I a I mix without thinking. In the beginning I remember when dr Kaplan came to Sweden. We talked a lot and it took a few days for my ”English brain” to melt in to the Swedish brain”. It really felt like I had 2 separate brains that stored information in my head, one in English and one in Swedish. And it was messy in my head when I went to sleep since I had information stored both in Swedish and in English but I wasn’t able to process them both at same time 🙂
Märkligt det där med språk. Det är skönt att skriva av sig ibland som i mitt förra inlägg om Jason. Men det är lite bökigt att orka skriva allt på både Swenska och Engelska. Det blir lite som blir. Ofta talar rubriken och bilderna sitt tydliga språk de gånger jag skriver mesta av inlägget på Svenska.
