stoped feeling sorry for myself
« on: October 18, 2010, 08:01:51 PM »
Got 8 vials taken today for my quarterly check-up. In Las Vegas I had a credit card only good for $500. Today I got pre-approved for $1,500. Guess I'll take it.

RAB and Willy, Guess I may just make it next year, no matter where it's at. I stand by my decision to help Hippie Lady to get there also.  Then she's on her own (just kidding).

I've had some drama this year and hope to be up and about without another trip to the hospital this next Christmas Eve.

People do accept and support me at work but that doesn't cover my needs for real friends to relate to. Las Vegas gave me so much.  You all gave me so much.  I have more names of people I lost in the 80's, even my last Doctor there.

I'm trying to hang in there and trying to hang strong. There is a lot of pressure on me at work and now I have to justify the system I was mandated to create in 1989. Oh Well. It's in it's third life now. But it's not a Common System in Boeing.  Wish me good luck.

I don't know why you are known as Weasel  You are the sweetest man I know. All of you were kind to me and treated me like I was just another human being. At work I'm treated like that guy with HIV or worse, The guy with AID's.

I had a moment of being treated like I was the normal in my Life.

Thank you All

Hello ifrosyth---we all have periods off feeling sorry for ourselves, and periods too when we read a situation the wrong way. Just part off the deal, anyway are you computer worker? if so and a system you created in 89 is still being used thats rare is it not ?

Take care

Just an update.

Four weeks ago I had an infection. This week I had another one.  A cist above my right knee became infected and I went to urgent care. It was lanced and I'm now coming out from the  numbing (OUCH). My Primary Doctor wants me in his office tomorrow.

This has been a hell of a year.  Starting with Heart Attack and now this.  The bright spot was the "Gathering" in August.

The Doctor saw me today and lanced the cist again.  He wanted to do it without numming me first. I could accept the lancing but then he poked the scissors with the crooked end in and started getting more puss out.

That would have hurt without preparation.  I'm into Leather and some Fetish but that would definitely been beyond my comfort zone. I wonder if he's been hanging out in leather bars.

I was put on pain pills on top of antibiotics so I'm taking vacation days from work but I brought my laptop from work home to keep up.  Can't be on if I'm on my pain pills as I could wright something inappropriate.

I'm just hoping to get through this year and into the next to see as many of you as possible next year.

Have I mentioned that I Love You All So Very MUCH!

RAB, I Love you like a Brother But, I've been to Seattle on three occasions. 1) Skating with Ice Follies at the World's Fair Arena. 2) A stop on the way to the Vancouver World's Fair. 3) Excel Developer's conference and had Dinner with Bill Gates.

Never been to Washington D.C., Florida or New Orleans. My BAD.
