A new year and a new start

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!

I'm a middle aged, some would say curmudgeon, who is sick, tired and truly frustrated with the way things are going in a country (America) that he loves, honors and respects.

  1. Hey there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this
    site with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will
    be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and brilliant design and style.

  2. Definitely consider that which you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be at the
    internet the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you,
    I certainly get irked at the same time as other folks consider concerns that they just do not understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the
    entire thing without having side effect , people can take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
