As a reminder of my issue, my abdominal muscles spasmed lightly yesterday for about 20 minutes. It did cause me a bit of anxiety. At the core, I fear returning to the state I have been in for the last 9 months.
I am driving a bit. The ratio is about 1 hour away from the house is equal to a 2 1/2 hour nap to recover. My muscles do tighten up, but through relaxation, massage and oral meds, I’m able to get them to release before they get debilitating. It is a never-ending cycle. But, I much rather be where I am, ahead of the game, then where I was.
I truly believe that the 18 or so hours I was flacid gave my body much needed rest to repair parts of itself. In the end, there are many silver linings to the collapse. I don’t look forward to it happening again, but it did put me in a much better physical place.
I have rescinded my resignation from the Vestry and I’m in the process of resurrecting the Internet services I’ve been providing to the Church. In the past, I prayed that I would be in a better position to better serve St. Matthew’s. At the moment, however fleeting it may be, I am.
My stamina is definitely not what it needs to be. I get about an hour to two hours of work in and then I’m done. But, at least, my physical body supports me enough to do that amount.
I really would like to play video games. The problem is: “I suck!” The only video game I every truly finished was “Champions of Krynn.” The reason I was able to finish it was because I broke into my Character files and made them invincible. I would like to honestly be skilled enough to kill bad guys on the digital realm.
A good indication of why I stink so bad at video games is my lack of coordination. I put on my boots yesterday, and almost fell. I lack the coordination to walk in my boots. I will try again in a few months, but I think tennis shoes and deck shows are going to be my main stay for the time to come. My eye-hand coordination is similar. I’m playing old-school video games like Galaga, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, etc to try to build the connections up, but it’s just embarrassing how bad I am.
Typing is coming along nicely, as long as I have the feelers on the “F” and “J” under my pointers. If I get off, then we need an interpreter. I have a few keyboards at home that have prominent feelers. I use them the most.
Things are definitely coming along. I think we are going to be OK, with God’s help and the help of many friends.
