Small Reminders

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I have rescinded my resignation from the Vestry and I’m in the process of resurrecting the Internet services I’ve been providing to the Church.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.
