my current situation is this,

decompress, not involve myself in drama unless totally required to. let people make their decisions and beds. to not be the continual family white knight, although i have 1 more charitable thing that must be done; the old place has turned into a jungle. 700 dollar quotes to get the grass down!!! i have a weed whaker with metal blade, sis will take it down in car when she picks mum up next week, and will go and weed whack the joint, on a cooler day.

looks like bro, the one at the old house is getting a gaurdian, i think they want him in some transitional development housing, but mum being a hard head. oh well. megs and i have pulled so many strings for them too that we are now done. i will ready my spare room, but i need mum to get her housing, for everything is in here, including a lot of sis's stuff. she had to do this to accomodate mum.

housing came around, i barked at them about a few very pertinant things, met new worker. am back on abilify, shrink and i think it good. was doing 5morn and nocte, but now doing 10mg in the morning and will use 5mg nocte if required. been slowly getting back into some meditation, and some poetry. put some on the forum. i started playing slots, just free ones, but when i bought a few rounds of money, which was really a piss in the wind, i realized i was being tempted and uninstalled it. i see my gambling counsellor in a couple of weeks.

i have been busy, even though in pain. i am seriously considering a electric scooter, not cheap, but i think it will actual be a blessing. i have done a lot of anecdotal and professional research and spoke with many professionals regarding the matter. i might have some project work at the hospital, we'll see, and maybe a couple more uni gigs down the track.

i am working hard on my diabetes with my new gp. he is very proactive, but not with pain. it is a dirty word now. i don't know how long i will be around hw. we'll see. makes my heart sink with slow forums and such. well, i am somewhat stable, chaotic some, but that is me. mum is still a medical mess, sis is doin' it tough, however receiving support, and sis comes from canada next month to see us and mum i guess.

be good. luv 2 ya all. tongue

Hold off on the scooter as long as you can Jamie, walk if you can. Once you get on a scooter and keep it, your walking days are over.

I hope bro gets situated in a good place and mum too. I hope she is doing good.

Glad you are doing some weed whacking. Good for exercise, though can get tedious.

Good on the diabetes. Watch diet, exercise as much as you can. Walking the best.

I hope you have a good night mate. Hang in there, thanks for posting.

Hugs, Karen...

HT, sounds like you are making progress on many fronts. It gets hard when everything is going on at once, but that's life, I guess.

It's beginning to sound like you have 46 brothers & sisters! You might have to talk about b1, b2, s1, s2, like that so we can follow along.

Always good to dance in the rain. Thankfully I have a little back garden so my neighbors don't see when I do that!!

Jamie,

I think the pain is a big factor in your walking, not dismissing your arteries.

Dancing in the rain is a grand thing to do!

I was dancing the parking lot, going into the drug store yesterday, "Happy" was on the radio!

Peace

Jamie, you do yourself proud.

This is part of your journey and purpose, to touch those lives and help those those 'hear' what you have to say.

Glad it has been upscaled, shows respect for the warrior and knowledge!

Bam!

actually it was good, very intricate stuff. lunch was nice, the venue was stylish. i pinched a few herbal infused tea bags, shhhhhh.
i got excellent reviews from all, including both directors. i have been, i think offered to talk with patients in the acute ward as smoking is being banned. i said i am in, so that's that, the main director said she would notify of more workshops as well. this is my harvest time, and with gratitude i shall reap, for i have sewn. early night, behind on stuff. i asked to receive payment in vouchers, should receive by post tomorrow or so, i will know the scope of my performance then!!!! lol. be good, and thx for the continued encouragement and support of the turtle. he's far from perfect, but a darn hard goer!!!
