Midnight Wild Child Gypsy Dreamer: The Middle

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt, It lies behind stars and under hills, And empty holes it fills, It comes first and follows after, Ends life, kills laughter. – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit Tuning out the voices was easier than I ever imagined it to be.  I decided…

Midnight Wild Child Gypsy Dreamer: The Beginning 

I know it’s been quite a bit of time since I wrote on here.  I wish I could have been able to take you with me on the journey that I’ve been doing, but putting it into words and seeing it on paper seemed impossible to handle.  A lot has changed for me in the…

Beachy Days and Just Short of a Decade

Now that we are almost two months through surgery recovery and lifestyle changes I can report that even though it has gotten easier it has not gotten any less annoying.  I am two months sober from alcohol, tylenol, and several other medications that could have aided in my allergy fest that I had experienced earlier…

YUCK! Up and Out.

As we start to move passed the urgency and main news of the medical side of things I will give you a quick update and any general overall concerns with it.  I have almost reached the point of being completely and 100% pain free 100% of the time and have adjusted to this new diet…

Let me take you back to something that I wrote while laying in the hospital bed waiting for my gallbladder to be removed.  I was connected to a Morphine drip in order to dull the pain and news that the  doctors were unsure if I could make it to surgery in time before my gallbladder…

Liver Drowning: Empty Bottles

Back of the Class

Today my anatomy class has been relocated to another room in the building.  The notification for the move came minutes before class should have started and was relayed by some saggy pan construction workers supporting each other on a ladder while working on the ceilings. Unfortunately for me the class was moved to a room located…

Inviting

There is all this crime in the world.  In fact you can not even turn on your TV without hearing about some horrible thing that has happened, but most of us take a deep breathe of relief that it did not happen to them or around them.  This is not one of those stories.  This…

Running on E

I am out of printer ink yet again.  This seems like something small and insignificant, but it is amazing the halt that it can put on ones day.  I print on average 55 pages of PowerPoint presentations for my Anatomy and Physiology class each week.  This doesn’t include the must be typed homework or study…
