The bikes have been put away for the winter and while we don't have the horrors of the east coast of course, tonight is cold, rainy and terribly windy.
And today, my summer from hell came close to being at an end. I had my umpteenth brain ct scan this morning and this afternoon took the dvd to my neurologist who told me that my subdural hemmorage has disappeared. It's completely gone and left nary a trace after five months of growing and shrinking and growing and shrinking. Dr. Gehring said I no longer have to come back and see his smilling face. Natural healing should take care of the remaining concussion symptoms over the next few months.
I didn't realize how injured and ill I was for most of the last 4-5 months until I started feeling better. Maybe kind of like getting sober and realizing how ill you had really been?
It was the summer from hell only healthwise........I met Judy only ten days before my accident and the past five months has seen our relationship develop very nicely. A love affair between two senior citizens is every bit as exciting as it would have been at any other age. And I've had them in pretty much all age brackets. lol
Ah Rex, that all sounds good, cancer and hematoma disappeared while the new love entered the scene!
and yeah, having just read a lot of "the book of love letters" , i'll say that the ones between older people sound a lot more appealing than all that rather , uh, slightly-silly-sounding "young" stuff.
(had to toss the book after a while, though, as it got a bit tedious. really, i got tired of it mostly because i'm convinced that i could do a lot better myself! as could you, and most of the people on this forum!)
good winter to you!
Good to hear you continue to mend! That F'n Sandy was quite the storm here in NY. Pretty much totalled my GF and her Brothers house's out in Rockaway Beach, so we've been out salvaging as much as we could and moving her in with me.
I guess it took a hurricane to finally blow her off the beach! It's also good to hear you and your new friend moving along in your relationship. Love is good to have in your life my friend.
I'm just a couple of days shy of my first year sober, and my life is totally back on track. I'm finally me again, and that's pretty cool! Have we heard anything from Stu and Jim lately? I hope that they're doing well.
Take care everyone, thanks for the help getting me back together, and I still stop in every now and then to see what's new. so stay well, and enjoy every sober day. This life of ours is a gift, way too preciuos to waste on alcohol.
Always great to hear from you my friend. Sorry to hear about the damage your loved ones are having to cope with but as long as no one was hurt they can build a new life.
Yes, J and my relationship seems to get deeper and more precious almost everyday. Your right, she is a good thing to have in my life.
A big, hardy congratulations on one year of sobriety but more than that it's wonderful to hear that you like the person you have again become.......and you're right, that's pretty cool. I'm so proud of you and hope sometime this next summer to maybe meet somewhere on two wheels.
Don't be a stranger here and call me whenever you feel like it.
Glad to know you're still hanging around and checking the forum daily. Good to hear that the campral is working for you. I don't know a thing about it but have always believed that there are several ways to accomplish almost anything. That of course includes living a sober life.
As I told Bob, don't be a stranger, read as much as you like and post when you're ready.
