yet to be determined
confined to the lonesome
Fooled around and fell in love 2 girls in their 20s, and an autistic son who is 23 y.o. We have too many pets to count and believe that a sense of humor helps to win the battles that this life presents. I hope to spiel my crazy self onto these pages before the poison peaks. Oh yeah, my husband never stops talking.. "All the lonely people, where do they all come from? All the lonely people, where do they all belong?" The Beatles

On Tuesday, October 19th, the first waves of uncertainty had begun to splash aboard the synapses that drifted aimlessly in the gray matter of my brain. I was shaky as banshees screamed from the unknown, and I could smell the sulphur of the electrical burn.
I'd known for many years to stand away from the massive, flat gray slate expanse of stones when they are stained the evil  of wild surf as my mind flew crazy and at times ugly as the neurons sought to make connections that might not be attainable.
On Friday, October 22nd, I opened my eyes to my husband calling my name.  Barely recognizing the man with whom I had spent 30+ years, I was reluctant to take a swallow of the drink he offered or answer the questions he asked. I knew for one thing that I had to pee without question, and I rose to get out of my bed, rolling instead to the floor with all the grace of a 200+ lb. woman.
The thump to the hardwood was moderately painful, but the lift Tommy tried to manuever to set me on my feet sent crushing sounds and deliberate snaps to my ankle and leg.
Although I was still confused, I began to understand my new surroundings, and  I recognized my family. I have come to the begrudging understanding that a prescription for 24 hr. oxygen, means just that.
Here we are at November 5. If you ask me, I can't tell you  exactly what or why my brain has been untrue to me.  30 years ago, I would've known the cause and it wouldn't have mattered much; my fractures would've been the cause for good stories, and another chance to hit the doctor up for a script or ten.
Today is different. The next time I can't even put a sentence together, my family has been instructed to send out the mounted police.

Raated with all the hugs I can give you
J, I haven't read your post before so I am a little confused. I'll go back and read others to clarify. Did you have a stroke? What I do know from reading this is your use of words is so poetic and really superb. I hope for your complete healing.
I hope you feel better soon! I'm glad you are able to go online and keep in contact.
Wishing you the very best.

And listen to Linda about them Mounties - some idiot gave them Tasers to play with and they're zapping anyone they can get their sights on.
O'Really-I am so touched that you came by.Thanks for the kind comment

Linda-I don't care who they call as long as they call someone! I'm feeling your hugs all the way! Thanks!

Janice -I don't know what happened.The doc said no stroke. I've been here since Dec.,2008, so if you start reading, there's much ground to cover. Just take it from me, I was one flaked out broad!

geezer-Thanks so much for the well wishes. I might disappear occasionally, but I usually find my way back!

Sheila-Thank you so much for your comments. Much appreciated, always.
Well written. Please feel better.
skypixie-No tasers allowed at my parties! Thanks for the heads up!
Sorry to hear this. Hang in there and maybe we can go to the Amazon together someday.
Sarah-Thank you so much for your kind words!
Yikes, J! What do you think happened to you? In addition to the falling, did you actually break an ankle, too? I hope they figure out what happened and that you recover quickly.
Hope you feel better soon. Keep us posted.
I too have been having some health difficulties lately, and the following quotations have comforted me. All the best to you, my dear Junk1!

Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind. - Leonardo da Vinci

Patience is the companion of wisdom. - Saint Augustine

Patience is the best remedy for every trouble. - Titus Maccius Plautus
Lea-We are definitely going to the Amazon! No maybe, baby!

Lisa-yeah, I sure did break an ankle and I screwed up my knee. Who knows what happened. The damn doctor doesn't. Ooh look at that alliteration, will ya? I must be getting better!

OE Sheepdog-Thanks for the visit! Now don't confuse me with the O this and O that.

ladyslipper- I have diagnosed myself with diabetes gone wild and and CO2 poisoning. Don't worry, I'll be back to my silly self quickly.
I am sorry too, and I hope you all the wellness very soon. I look forward to your old "silly self". Sending you good thoughts.
Sanity is overrated... Hope you feel better real soon.

Sorry to hear this junk1, but happy to see that you still have your sense of humour. Best wishes.
Wow yes a speedy recovery!
I can't imagine what you have gone through, junk1. I hope the healing is going well and goes quickly.

Dear Julie! What a scare you and your family must be feeling! My best wishes to you all!
You once mentioned that you had been able to move out of the dreadfully overcrowded conditions of the last apartment into this present one. My sincere wish is that you won't have been poisoned by an environmental factor, and that your diagnosis might prove right on. Even a hidden mould problem can be a dangerous thing for anybody with a delicate condition such as our own. To have your place thoroughly inspected might be one option fo ryou to explore.
Take care, dearie!
Julie, I hope you get some good diagnostic help and feel much better soon. Wish I could go to the Amazon with you and Lea, but at least we'll always have OS. :)
From Cranston to Narragansett lots of feel-better-wishes...Keep writing: it can be cathartic.

Welcome back
I too wish you a very fast recovery!
I will keep you in my prayers every day. Call me when you need to.
I am sending you my phone number by pm. No call to the police, please
Bonjour Monsieur, Thank you so much for these quotes, I find them most helpful.
I am glad it returned for you to write this moving piece.
rated with love
Best wishes to you, friend.
Hey guys-I've just spent an hour here thanking and sending accolades for your loving and thoughtful comments. For no apparent reason the page changed and all my comments were just gone! I have had this happen other times, as well. Sometimes I've been able to get them back, but not .I had started with Fusuna and was just writing to RicTresa, and everything was totally eradicated. My point is this, any other time I'd shrug it off and start again, but I don't have the energy to do that, but it's important to me that you know how much you all mean to me. Thank you, everyone. I love you guys.
Big Hug, j. Thinking of you.
Life is a bitch sometimes, isn't it, J? Feel better soon. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Please feel better soon. My prayers are with you. xoxoxo
Whoa, hang in there. Enjoyed your word play in your post.
