Diary of a Blind Madman

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I'm waiting in this cell because I have to know... have I been guilty all this time?
  It seldom happens to me, but last night I dreamed of dying. I'm going to record it in baddreams. It wasn't particularly a horrible or terrifying dream. That, of itself, is slightly disturbing.
  I am re-arranging furniture this week. I plan to rent a big-screen TV or a projector (or, serially, both) to find out if I can see them. My vision is getting worse in small increments and I probably have only a couple of years of TV viewing left. If I can find something to let me keep viewing for a while longer, I think I might as well watch all my favorite movies while I can. If any of you out there have or know of a particularly good 60" + television system, let me know how you feel about it. I don't think there is any point in investing in a picture any smaller. lutron if you've done any research on the subject, let me know what you know.
  My sister and I both are suffering with various aches and pains today. Between humidity attacking my sinuses, dampness and barometric changes inflaming my arthritis, and general lassitude contributing heavily to my backaches I am a mess. I really need to find a way to keep these pains from limiting my scope of action as they are doing so with ever-greater frequency.
  For a few days (theoretically) Betty, Alex, and Bethy the Slayer, are staying in my basement. They are house-hunting at the moment and given past situations it may take a while. I am not too thrilled about this, but am also perfectly OK with the situation. What needs to be done is being done.

I don't know if it will work for you, but here's what made my joint problems much more dealable.

Got off the anti-inflamitories altogether.

Am now taking two extra strength tylenol twice a day, and a herb called Boswella (http://www.holistic-online.com/Herbal-Med/_Herbs/h34.htm) twice a day.

I had the Boswella recommended by a nurse, who whispered it to me after I had the tendonitis in my foot diagnosed. She said it's helped alot of people. After taking it for over 6 months, on a scale of 1-10, my pain went from a 6-7 to a 2.
