Another Day


Well, went to the Doctor again and now have some new med. Hopefully these will work a little better. Also got not only new meds but a little new hope. At least I found someone who is willing to try and work with my condition and not say "go home and learn to live with it". I guess I am too much of a control freak. I have now someone to work with that understands that I am willing to trying to seek if not a cure at least a way of being able to function and contribute to this world. There is too much of life to experience not to try what is available to make life better. Will post more later today on 300 Million. Enjoy the day!

Change


Okay, I don't know if anyone besides myself reads this and I am not sure I want to know. Knowledge does not always set you free. I think I would be inclined to "pull my punches" if I knew people were reading this. I have always felt that people should live who they are and not be manipulated by others. Of course I have always felt that people were basically good, well meaning creatures, I may be wrong but that is my reality and I am sticking with it.

The reason for this rambling is that I am about to be painfully honest (at least it is painful for me). For over a year I have been told that I have Meniere's disease symtoms. Now that is not a death sentence by any means and to most people it is just an inconvience. I thought that was to be my plight. Apparently for the last 10 years my symptoms have been increasing but very slowly and I could always adjust and adapt. I figured it was just life. Last year the symptoms got a name. This year things have been progressing rapidly. At the present rate within the next year I possibly be unable to work, drive or do the "normal" things in life. When the world spins it is difficult to focus on anything.

Well, enough ramblings. If someone else is reading this just enjoy the pictures on the blog and kinda of skip over this. I will probably write more later. With Meniere's medical answers are at best ambiguious and generally non existent. (At least that is my experience) This is a good place to just vent.

It Won't Be Long


It won't be long, just four more days and the temperature will drop to freezing. The last time it was that cold was in March. It won't be a hard freeze but enough so that the plants have to come inside. Winter is almost here.
