Today's Movie Quote: "That's the truth of his life; the dreamers exhaust us, they must die before they kill us with their blasted dreams."

         The updates have been few. I have had little enough to report yet I have been quite busy too.

         Writing — I've done none. I am striving to do some today and may post later. I'm finding it difficult to concentrate despite medication.

         Health — Things are going to Hell faster than I would like. I'm seeing the neurologist Wednesday morning, that being the earliest appointment I can get. I may force an appointment by going to the emergency room if things get much worse. My legs and hands are twitching, spasming, quite erratically at odd intervals. I think I have nerve damage somewhere or maybe a compressed disk. My arthritis is acting up rather severely as well. My hands are now sufficiently tender that typing is, for the first time, an effort and a painful one.

         Sleep — The ongoing saga… I've become nocturnal. I seldom manage to get to sleep before 4am despite taking my quite a number of pills every night. I am sleeping more hours than formerly, but I still don't feel rested.

Now is as good a time as any to remind you that I am still here, still reading what you say, still thinking of you and still praying for you.

for the reminder and the prayers. I don't know if I've ever said so, but I follow your journal closely. It is a breath of normalcy in an inverted world. Of course there is that ancient Chinese outlook on "interesting times" - they are interesting only to the outside observer, not to the participant. Perhaps the same is true of normalcy?

Same here.

If you're exhibiting so many worrisome symptoms, why not just force the appointment now to make sure nothing more can happen?

I've been living with these symptoms for some time. I will force the issue if I feel unsafe, but I can't afford the emergency room fees otherwise. My insurance (United HealthCrap) is far from generous in any respect.

How awful. I'm thinking of you. I hope you feel better soon.

Hope your trip goes well. Will be thinking of you.
