I Have Not Left You All!!
« on: December 28, 2018, 02:13:28 PM »
Hello All

I sincerely hope that you had a Wonderful Christmas and will have a Very Safe, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

It has been a strange yet cathartic last few weeks, remembering that after 2 visits to the Emergency at a local Private / Public Hospital and I think just over a week in the Hospital Section as well.

For those that know me, it was not my Back (LOL).

Unfortunately, the above Hospital Visit / Stay was the aftermath of having a large BCC (Basel Cell Carcinoma) removed, following with "unplanned" bleeding and time until more stitches were added to stop the blood flow, that I got a Staphylococci Infection in my Blood and another health issue that occurred to me as well; as they say, "...Pride Goith Before My... Nose, etc.". ROFL

The good thing, for me, was that I was supported by my poor wife, who had to drive me to the hospital, talk to the doctors (as I was and to some degree, still suffering a loss of being able to talk too and understand what the doctors were saying to me), visit me on most nights, etc., while still working full-time in a business that is busiest this time of year.

Also, I was home the Saturday before Christmas, so was able to make our annual Christmas Celebrations (made possible by my wife and our 2 children (though they are adults and have been for some time, I still see them as my children), which was lovely.

I am still very weak and it will take me some time to get back to my "Old Self" over the next 2 to 3 months so please bear with me during this time.

I am still part of this Wonderful Forum and love communicating with you on subjects we all love and cherish.

I have some stories I want to share with you all, that came out of all the above.

In closing, remember, there are always positives that comes out of negative events, like the above, you just have to have clarity and a "Oneness" within yourself to see these.... 8) 8) ;D ;D

To Be Continued...... LOL

Glad you came through it relatively intact! My sympathy to your wife and your nose! Take care Simon. Looking forward to your stories.

Hi Simon here, good news, I am back.

Surprisingly  out of bad luck I am now free of my drugs; I am also gaining more clarity without heavy drugs.

The pain I have, has not gone away but am now dealing with it by meditation and "misdirection of the mind", i.e., reading a book, listening to music, etc..

The mind is a great tool and can do a lot of things for us, we just have to believe strongly in it; The Mind Is Not Used By Most People, they just don't know; I was one of those and the change in me is very Positive!!!
