I guess it’s about time that I updated the site and clarified what’s been going on with me and around me.
The work I was doing for that University course never got completed and got recorded as a Fail. I went through several weeks of on-again off-again pain and the Tramadol taken with the Lyrica blew my concentration out the window. At times the sedation was affecting me so much that I would fall asleep every 30 minutes or so and if I was reading I’d forget what was the last sentence that I had read.
Even though I was given extra time, by July I had told the school and Open Universities that it simply wasn’t working out and to take me off their lists.
Since then I’ve focused on just getting through the day and doing as little as possible that might upset my arms and caused me to hit the painkillers again. Every now and then I find that I’ve been unsuccessful, the pain comes, I take the painkillers, I lose a day in a haze.
I’m still a little active, I still do chores around the house, at least the chores that I can do without causing the problems to exacerbate. At present I’m volunteering each weekend at the local hospital where I act as a patient guide providing information and physical guidance to help visitors get around the hospital. It is a lot of fun and the physical activity, I walk miles during a shift, it is very good for me and I feel better inside and out for doing the work.
So back to this site. I intend to keep it going. It will cover the kinds of things that I’m doing or things I might want to add a comment about or events and activities that I get involved in.It will expand to cover other aspects of my life such as my Model Railway hobbies.
I hope I am able to keep a regular posting schedule but that depends on too many factors for me to say it’s going to happen like that.
I thank you for hanging around while all of this circus was taking place in my life and I hope in the future I can find more interesting things to share with you.
