sick in the head

<<reverse < index > forward>>

Let me just blog this crap before I go to sleep, get it out of my mind. Make me stop feeling sorry for myself.

But first, let me preface this by saying that I have a lot of really good friends who are always looking out for me, and I know that in some platonic shape and form, I am loved. Let it be known that I am seriously grateful for your friendship. You guys know who you are.

But, yeah, I got to do a procedure today, my first spinal tap, and I got in my first shot, which was pretty cool, and, yeah, I mean, we all have to do them eventually, it's a skill, meaning you can learn it, and sometimes you get it and sometimes you don't, it's a lot of luck, but I still felt pretty slick.

The thing that is sad and pathetic is that a little part of me is sad that there really isn't anyone I can convey my little triumph to. I mean, sure, there is this blog. Hah. Sure, there are my friends. But, honestly, while the ones who are in health care might be momentarily impressed (and the ones who aren't will have no idea what I'm talking about), it's not the same. There is a difference between listening because you're a good friend and caring because you're a good friend, and actually, truly caring about whatever bullshit I'm talking about.

Like I've said time and time again, I need someone who has a stake in title="another old blog entry">what I have to say.

But, still. If only life could be like this. Little triumphs and successes here and there. They're like fuel for the soul. I need this small baby steps like I need oxygen.

Times like this, I wonder what it would be like if only I didn't know what I was missing.

But as they say, I guess you can't put the shit back into the horse.

Comment/Excerpt: Many thanks to Darren and his team.Yesterday, I mangaed to fill the whole tank (Hyundai Sante Fe) from empty with unleaded fuel. Moved off from the service station, but the journey may have lasted around 2-3 minutes when the car seemed to lose power. Pulled over and turned off the engine. Tried to start the car with no success. I clearly recall picking up the pump for Shell V-Power Diesel then thinking to myself you don't use this, so get the standard diesel! , then taking out the pump next to it.Girls were asking what was wrong with the car. As I turned around to answer, it then dawned on me that there could be a remote possibility that I filled up with the wrong type of fuel. So I checked my receipt, which to my horror, clearly stated V-Power unleaded .Luckily we (the two young children of 7 and 4 and I) were only 20 minutes walk from home, so I told them of daddy's mistake and that we should go home and I'll think about what to do on the way. At home I did a little research and it seemed that going the dealer route may result in a sizeable bill, most likely in the thousands.Called up fuel fixer after looking at several such companies on the net. The technician gave me adequate notice so that I could leave home and go back to the car and wait for their arrival.The 1st technician was able to drain the fuel from one of the tanks, but the access to the 2nd fuel tank was under the rear car sets and he was unable to get it open required a specialised tool. A quick call to his colleague and an arrangement for another technician to assist. The 2nd technician arrived and completed the job.These guys are very friendly and professional. They kept me informed during the whole process and even allowed my girls to watch and irrigate them I will be keeping their number in my phone to recommend to family , friends and work colleagues.

Comment/Excerpt: cavalrytmHey man, I have a bit of a dilema. I just<a href="http://xedqohmxf.com"> bhougt</a> a vintage camper and I plan on heading out and travelling all over the country for a couple years. Trouble is, the only way for this camper to get power is through a cord, which is to be used at campgrounds with plug-in areas. Well, I'm not always going? to be at a campground, so I need a generator.Should I go with propane or electricity? Which one is more efficient? How long will the ETQ generator run with a full standard grill propane tank?
