I have come to realize that in 10 short weeks that I grew from an infant to an adult again. I have to re-learn everything. When I first got here, I could not do anything on my own. I was reliant on someone to do everything for me. The one thing I could do is eat and that’s about it. It was tough back in those days. As of today, I’ve grown and I would say I am a pre-teen now. I still have so much growing and learning to do yet. I can’t even imagine the learning I will have to do when I get home. I do know one day that I will be a fully-functional adult again. I guess that is one of the difficult things of this and many other injuries — you have learn everything again.
Today was a decent day. I started working on buying a mountain bike for when I get home. There has been some discussion for me to get a mountain bike. I am going to get a mountain bike because with my new condition getting out of the noise of society is going to be difficult to do and the mountain bike will allow me to get in to the quiet silence of the wilderness. I really believe I will enjoy it and use it quite a bit.
Today I have had quite a bit of nerve pain. I really don’t know how to explain what it is, but it is pain I feel in my legs. At first I didn’t have any, but it seems to be getting worse. I was trying to get off all my drugs but with this nerve pain it doesn’t look like I will totally off drugs anytime soon. Some days I just wish the pain in my legs would just go away. Even tonight, I tried using acupuncture to rid the pain. It worked for a whole 45 minutes. Maybe I should try something I don’t even know about. Something has to work.
So tonight, I am in bed, sitting, writing and watching Navy NCIS. I haven’t watched a lot of the show, but I realize a person who is in the show is a fan of this website. I was watching and I saw him in a whole bunch of scenes. I actually grew up the Brian D and it was a trip to watch him in the show. I know Brian reads this blog and he has left multiple comments. I appreciate your support and thoughts. Brian, I am definitely enjoyed the show and I will be watching it from now on. I will admit it was a bit creepy to watch where all the cadavers are kept. Anyway, say hello to all the cast for me.
I was looking at a calendar today, and I realized I now have three weeks and counting. I spoke to Erika and she is excited to have me home and I am ready to be home with her. Like I said before, I am still a bit nervous about going home. But I am excited to be back home and start living again.
I realize I have taken a few days off from posting. I had a couple of hiccups that kept me down in the evening. I apologize for missing a couple of days.
Anyway have a good Wednesday. You better work hard and take nothing for granted – trust me.
