treebeard update v.2016.6

Postby tim » Tue Jun 28, 2016 21:36

My life has been crazy good and crazy bad. I think that's how things are when major changes occur in one's life...


I was experiencing severe pain for several months this year and no one was able to figure out the cause of. Four ER visits, two CT scans, a couple? x-rays, appt's with five specialists (one of whom I had to file a complaint against for insulting my Mother and myself so badly) and some primary care physicians (my regular one retired and couldn't see many people, so I also had to rely on a nurse practicioner(sp?) who was VERY pregnant and wait to see a new primary care doctor, who I had no idea whether or not they were good or not. Well, lots of prayer, maintaining a positive attitude, etc paid off as between her and a chiropractor, it was figured out what I have and I'm finally getting relief!!!!! It's incredible and when it all worked out, I broke down into tears. I'm finally getting my life back and, hopefully, will be able to get back into physical therapy... which is a big deal after having had to use a cane off and on for years and was sometimes in so much pain that I couldn't walk or, when I did walk, was in such severe pain that I could only take very, very small steps, barely able to move.

During all of this, a friend murdered his girlfriend and then committed suicide, another friend died and no one knows the cause of it yet, more people I know died of heroin overdoses, people I knew or were friends with were found to be sexual predators who had sexually assaulted many women, my cat got sick (and still is), my rent is about to go up so much that I have to find a new place to live, which is difficult because the cost of living here has skyrocketed, my Mother's health has worsened, etc, etc, etc...

But in the midst of this, some huge blessings happened, like getting a new (to me) recliner that's in good shape and helps my back, I was honored with a "lifetime achievement" award by my local music scene and during it people were chanting "you deserve it, too!!!" and stuff while I dedicated it to someone else and said I was giving it to him, my sister decided to talk to me again after she had removed me from her life (on my birthday, no less), I've been blessed with albums and stuff from people out of nowhere, was given several icons, made more friends, finally found a Bible Study with people who I can relate to theologically and culturally and they accept me as I am, tons of grindcore shows are happening this summer (this is unprecedented in my city) and the bands playing it are just having a good time and being goofy, rather than gross, nihilistic, or preachy about politics, I started sort of webzine for the area that incorporates several different kinds of social media, my sister sent me stuff from India, including toys for my cat, there are several free awesome shows happening, I've finally stopped hating my body, a lot of women are showing interest in me (no Christians so far, but I don't really know any single ones near me) and and and... life is just beautiful... :headbang: :D :headbang: :D :headbang:

Good to hear you are staying positive through all of that s***! Makes the problems in my life seem very small in comparison. Thanks for sharing that though. If I may ask, what did they diagnose you with?

I'd rather not say. Not because it's embarrassing or so severe that I don't want to. Just don't want people giving me advice for it. I already get deluged with that almost everytime I tell someone what it is.
