How To Get a Job?

I am on my way to self sufficiency

I did not realize I haven't been here in so long. Time sure does just slip away.

Different Approach

Can diet shrink my lipoma?

I chatted with a friend on facebook who lives on the other side of the world. He also has a lipoma in his spinal cord. He shared with me what they do over there to treat the lipoma. So I am thinking about trying that also.

Still Healing

Even after all this time

I have been trying to write all month. I just have not been feeling like myself.

Road Trip

My first bit of freedom

I was driving a 1967 Mustang coupe before I was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor. I have not driven it since.

Marching On Through March

Handling Breakthrough Pain

When I first started going to pain management I only had to go every three months. That was great for me because the trip itself was very painful. I had settled into a routine of doctor visits and trying to adjust to my life at home.

St.Patrick's Day

Today is the day my family is getting together to celebrate St. Patrick's day. We are going to a parade and then back to my house for corned beef and cabbage.

March Madness

Part I: March should be Pain Management Month!

March is a strange month for me. I celebrate an anniversary that is both terrible and happy at the same time. This year it will be six (6) years since I have taken narcotics!

Balances and Checks

Lack of balance doesn't keep me away from the gym!

I practice my balance just about every day. I know not to give up and that the spinal cord is very surprising sometimes.

Back Pain and My Son

I couldn't believe my son already is having "back problems"

My son called me and said he had to go to the ER because of back pain. Don't you know my heart dropped.

In Pursuit of Less Pain

How it has been going

Before I had a spinal cord tumor (SCT), I never had a backache. I never really had any ache except labor pains. I was strong and healthy.
