hoje sinto-me bem porque...

por vezes, como pequenas luzes que se acendem, as coisas mais simples que fazemos são aquelas que surgem mais efeito.

(today I feel good because...

sometimes, as small lights coming to life, the most simple things we do are the ones that work best.)

Atopic dermatitis, also known as atopic eczema, is an atopic, hereditary, and non-contagious skin disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the skin.
The skin of a patient with atopic dermatitis reacts abnormally and easily to irritants, food, and environmental allergens and becomes red, flaky and very itchy. It also becomes vulnerable to surface infections caused by bacteria.
Atopic dermatitis often occurs together with other atopic diseases like hay fever, asthma and conjunctivitis. It is a familial and chronic disease and its symptoms can increase or disappear over time.
Although it is an inherited disease, eczema is primarily aggravated by contact with or intake of allergens. It can also be influenced by other "hidden" factors such as stress or fatigue. Atopic eczema consists of chronic inflammation; it occurs in people with a history of allergy disorders such as asthma or hay fever.

Since dust is a very common allergen and irritant, adults with atopic eczema should likely avoid smoking, as well as the inhalation of dust in general.

Rosacea is a common but often misunderstood condition that is estimated to affect over 45 million people worldwide. It affects white-skinned people of mostly north-western European descent, and has been nicknamed the 'curse of the Celts' by some in Ireland and Scotland. It begins as erythema (flushing and redness) on the central face and across the cheeks, nose, or forehead but can also less commonly affect the neck and chest.
Rosacea affects both sexes, but is almost three times more common in women, and has a peak age of onset between 30 and 60.


Rosacea has a hereditary component and those that are fair-skinned of European or Celtic ancestry have a higher genetic predisposition to developing it. Women are more commonly affected but when men develop rosacea it tends to be more severe. People of all ages can get rosacea but there is a higher instance in the 30-50 age group. The first signs of rosacea are said to be persisting redness due to exercise, changes in temperature, and cleansing.
Triggers that cause episodes of flushing and blushing play a part in the development of rosacea. Exposure to temperature extremes can cause the face to become flushed as well as strenuous exercise, heat from sunlight, severe sunburn, stress, anxiety, cold wind, moving to a warm or hot environment from a cold one such as heated shops and offices during the winter.

Famous people with Rosacea include:

como retirar o que está a incomodar

(how to withdraw whats bothering)

e assim, aqui estou, fumando um cigarro debaixo desta lua, como se em maio.

todos os anos se ouve falar: desde à 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 anos, que não estava tão quente.
o aumento vai sendo gradual, e é sobretudo no verão que mais se fala. actualmente estamos em fevereiro, e mais parece que estamos em plena primavera.
é porreiro para as culturas mas, faz crescer um certo medo.
e todas as semanas se ouve falar: vai chuver. e inicialmente há o pânico, como formigas tontas que tentam encontrar a entrada do formigueiro, mas ao mesmo tempo uma alegria crescente de sentimento de normalidade a regressar. como devia de ser, claro.
e depois é falso alarme. pfffff...

(and so, here I am, smoking a cigarette under this moon, like if in May.

one hears every year: for the last 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 years, it was not this hot.
the increase is gradual, and is especially in the summer that more one hears about it.
at present we are in February, and more it seems that we are in full spring.

it is cool for the cultures but, a certain fear starts growing.
and one hears every week: it is going to rain. and initially there is the panic, like dizzy ants that try to find the entry of their nest, but at the same time a growing feeling of joy for the normality to return. like it should be, clearly.
and then it is a false alarm. pfffff...)

a bomba de água

confiamos tão cegamente nos sistemas eléctricos que só nos lembramos quando há problemas que seria bem mais simples o human power...
aguardo pacientemente a chegada do messias que irá fazer o milagre da substituição da bomba de água.

(the water pump

we trust so blindly the electric systems that we only remind ourselves when there are problems what the human power would be much more simple...
I wait with pacience for the arrival of the Messiah who will be going to do the miracle of the substitution of the water pump.)

o que te faz sentir segura? - parte I

ter água,
saber que
ali está.
sentir a sua frescura na pele,
saciar a sede.

from now on, also featuring the english version:

(what makes you feel safe? - part I

to have water,
knowing that
there it is.
to feel its freshness in the skin,
to satisfy the thirst.)
