Now Playing: Day 837-The Final Road To Survival
This definitely is starting to become a Friday the 13th weekend although there is one problem...Its not Friday the 13th! AHHHHHHH!! That is even scarier! Nah, but today sure was scary as all heck!! YIKES!
Since everyone has been having fun with the faces of Drano today we welcomed ole TEX from Texas. Scared little guy isn't he? Sure delivers one heck of a punch though! Trust me, doctors and surgeons don't put you on this stuff because they think you will enjoy the taste and weekly treatments but instead you gotta have some pretty messed up insides to have to endure this toxic poison. AMEN! Ask the doctors who work endlessly for me time and time again battling another insurance company who stepped up to the Drano plate. Maybe instead of a simple medical necessity letter they need to instead just have SSD send the arm length of records they have on file. AMEN. Ole Tex sure did put some smiles of fellow GP friends today and sometimes that's what life's about. Making others happy when you can't control all the stress around you in your own life/environment.
It was a HELLISH day of stress and honestly there is no words in the dictionary to describe the level of stress that is around me in the city. When you have to call upon your specialists to warn that maybe this treatment is going to go down south all the way, same place where ole DranoTex is from then you know its not going to be a good day or HECK even evening. Sleep? I see that NOT happening. Treatment? Stress means treatment that already has a hard enough time getting through my intestines which is now once again going to take ten times longer. Stress and medical conditions don't mix. I know I keep sounding like a broken record but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WORLD understand stress can kill.
"There's already an established link between chronic stress and long-term illnesses like heart disease, gastrointestinal distress, and other illnesses, newer research shows that chronic stress also makes you more prone to illness, makes those illnesses worse to bear, and you'll feel sicker when you do fall ill. The moral of the story? Manage your stress, find ways to alleviate it." -Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University
So after taking lap after lap around the house this evening a dear friend of mine decided to come over and watch some television with me. At least if things continue going farther down south I have someone here who can help because I am on my own in this city and the only one I can count on is Eric who understands the aftermath with treatment along with seizures. My friend has known me for years so they totally know what to expect and I am beyond appreciative for all their LOVE and SUPPORT! Since we don't plan on catching much sleep it looks like this might be an old school Atari or Wii night playing my favorite game, "Operation!" If I keep playing maybe by next year I will be surgical certified. WOOHOA! Wishful thinking...
At least we got a jump start to making the big move out west which we have set a goal to happen within the year. Everyone around me in and out of state have all agreed, "You both need to get out of dodge so you can live a peaceful life again." Instead of driving out of state instead I might find the most expensive pair of Nikes and RUN LIKE HELL FOR MY LIFE! AMEN!!!!
Given all the unnecessary/relentless stress I am VERY LUCKY to still be alive and God is GOOD!
