The Story of my Non-Healing Wound - Emotions

Posted 07-19-2014 at 02:39 AM by RABG (Story of my Healing Wound - the Surgery)

Why is it that when your feeling better and want to do some thing physical there is a doctor who tells you No!
In my case it is yard work vs my pain doctor. I need that yard work physically and mentally, it gives me a sense of pride. I have raked leaves, snipped away at tons of briars, dragged small limbs, pulled endless weeds and have had a good time doing it.
But, the doctor tells me no. Why? Because it will hurt my back, make the stress fractures worse or create new ones. I truly...

Seven shades of misery part VII(the Final shade)

Posted 12-20-2012 at 04:14 AM by Phoenix (Getting Out Of A Funk)

Well,here I am...the culmination of all my blogs come full circle.
I reminisce about the years of anger and what I allowed it to do to me.
It turned me into this unrecognizable being.Losing sight of myself was the least of my worries(or so it seemed).I had no concern for my own well-being.
My health declined,then stabilized and plummeted again.I was truly Mr.Inconsistent.
Truth be told,I didn't care if I lived,due to my quality of life issues.I was in the deepest,darkest...

My Father

Posted 11-19-2012 at 03:06 AM by Phoenix (Getting Out Of A Funk)

For years I use to be so angry at him,nicknaming him "the person I call father,the grinch" and a host of other names.
Growing up with him was tough,for so many reasons but this isn't about pointing solely at the bad.
I now view the "not so good times" as historic points in my life,that without them,it wouldn't have brought me to where I am today.
Knowing him has made me a better individual,for I learned a lot from him and have to admit that it wasn't all...

There's This Emptiness Inside

I though that once certain issues in my life over,I would feel much better;dare I use the word "relieved."
This couldn't be further from the truth,yet I still try to put on a happy face.
It does leave me with a ton of anxiety to deal with though.

I don't know whether to embrace it or distance myself from its' existence.
It's sort of tricky,like a catch-22 scenario.

I have to release myself from this feeling sometime soon.......
