Over the years I have had many times where I have been under the weather, or so overwhelmed by things as to not be able to function at anywhere near a normal level. These past six months have been like that. Between getting my ass handed to me in August, along with the changes in doctors and clinics, I have not wanted to do anything but lay about, read, and listen to old time songs. Plus, this past fall semester I decided to take a writing class at the local college which took more time than I had anticipated. Thankfully, the class was on-line and I didn’t have to venture forth into the wilds of a modern day college campus. Just going to the campus for registration was enough for me to realize how screwed up many of today’s teens and early twenty-year-olds are.
Now I am back, and I am going to push very hard to be more diligent with this blog. I plan on bringing updates as to what has been happening in the wonderful world of public health care, along with some humor and perhaps a touching, heart rendering story along the way.
I hope that if you stumble upon this little blog you enjoy what you read, but if not, it truly is not my problem. I write for catharsis, not for accolades or popularity. I write as a participant and an outside viewer. Given the state of the medical profession in America today, I also hope that what I write will open the eyes of those who do not understand the painful difficulty of dealing with public health care.
All that said, it is good to be back. I look forward to the challenges of the next year, both personally and professionally. I know that for every good day I have there will be two or three bad. I have a choice to make, wallow in the bad, and bemoan what is happening to me, or face each day and fight to have a good day. I am planning on a fight.
All I ask are prayers to fight on, and the strength to do so, so that I might make a difference in at least one person’s life.
Now, with all that said, bring on 2013, and Happy New Year!
