his milestones for
April 11 to April 17, 2010
. Sunday I sang in the choir as we started a celebration of Christ's resurection which will last for another 5 weeks. I saw work done on the house I wanted to buy. They are cleaning it up and fixing it up and have torn off the back poraches, I assume to put new ones on. < http://www.acme-electronic.com/Site/Acme_Electronic.html > ! I just did not have money to get anything. I would like to visit our past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, I.O.O.F, Michael Beaulieu (2004), who had to have his leg taken off below the knee. I do so much want to own some small spont in springfield to lay my head as this one room and large bathroom is just not my own place. Also many of the newer tenants seem to be not viewing this housing as an opportunityi to do better.
Please pray, I am very concerened. I still don't know what caused the sickness that hit me lst month. I do feel weakened. My back and especially my neck muscles hurt. The tingling is better in my left hand and thumb and little finger and sometimes not there at all after the new medicine. I would like to know really what is happening medically so I can ask God what to do. I went to see the folks at Pionerr Valley Urology, name says it all. And then Tuesday we had an attempt at a VIMUG meeting, but no one came.
The pain is still great in my arms, they feel like the muscles are atrophying. And I still feel so sick and I hurt a lot. It seems as if I were "dying" inside.
I was better with the hands, but I have lost all appetit to eat. I called up Ann, the Boston Health Net nurse I used to contact at Mason Square Neighborhood Health Center, and told her I reduced the medicine dosage and how the night before I had written out all sorts of things about doing myself in. Tony Lalikos had taken me to get bottle redeemed and he had treated me to lunch at McDonalds and took me to Savers where I bought a phone, these are things I have liked to do. But it did not change the depressive suicidal thoughts at all. So I told this to Ann. I had already reduced the amount of Lyrica from 3 times a day to twice a day and that day I had not taken any as of yet.
She got back to me from the Doctor who say only take the one dose of Lyrica that night and then see her Thursday at noontime, she would try and "squeeze" me in. Dr. Plumber (my primary care physician) saw me, stopped the Lyrica and put on my chart I was allergic to it. By Saturday the thoughts of suicide had gone away andy my appetie was commng back. Also the tingling in the arms came back. So I know it is the nerves.
I enjoyed singing in the choir but God has used that to remind me of how little I have been doing on what he told me to do. The work is before me and I really should do it. I seem to be running int the opposit direction. I now wonder if I can do that work any more.
I used more food stamps and some of the Big Y food cards when I got cake and soda and ice cream for the monthly birthday party and will probably do the same this month. We had others take over the Tenants Union meeting and I think that worked out well. I am too far behind in using the Bible Reading Guide and in college studies. It is in a PDF format for people to look at on this website. Maybe I will start again at t later date, but I fear it will not be until school is over with. I fear I am "loseing" this semester also. I don't seem to know how to study any more. The pains and shuch are all the time.
charlie, nektarios ippotis
The info. below is still sort of ok.
I have made a tri-fold resume like a brochure, my doctor said no work for at lest the next 3-6 months, ouch. It was last year, October 18th, when many donated to the Western Massachusetts Arthritis Foundation Walk. My back hurts, my neck hurts, I just plain hurt. I hope people will donate also again this comming fall.
Soon I am helping in the Relay for Life of the American Cancer Society. We had meetings on it this week on the PTK induction ceremony next week but I did not go.
What follows are the new information about my injuries and the progress from my NeuroSurgeon! I am in great pain and have difficulty doing many things.
I said last before that I would probably take them down from here. Now I will keep them up a little longer so you can see what I am having difficulty in healing from.
