I have noticed that I haven't been to the site a lot in the recent past, for that I appologize to all my old, new and not yet friends on here. I will try to make it to the site more often now.
I guess you could say that once I came to the realization or epiphany about the acceptence of my being an amputee and that my prosthetic was as much a part of me as my own real full leg is or ever was, that I decided to even more to enjoy the life I was given and to live it to the fullest or until my wife has me commited to an institution. I can't say I am out there climbing mountains, skydiving or learning to surf like the lovely Jo. Somethings are just not me. But I have started going back to a lot of the things I love to do: going to museums, my art and enjoying my wife and family.
I hope by now most have maybe read my previous blog on my battle with phantom pain and possible winning battle against it. I seriously believe in accupuncture now as a battle against those phantom pains. I have been relatively pain free for months now and enjoying it. My accupuncturist even helped with some back pain I was suffering in the recent past. So please if you are suffering pain from phantoms or other physical reason, give accupunture a try you may be pleasantly surprised.
I guess the next thing I wanted to talk or write about was the rather large rise in new members to the site. WELCOME!!!!!!! I am personally glad you are here now, you are among friends now. We are all here to assist each other and help when we need it. You are all among others that know what you are going through, there is not a thing that you have or are going through that someone on here hasn't experienced. If you have something that we haven't gone through, then share with us so it will help all those here now and those that come in the future.
You should all always remember that we can't help if we don't know what is happening in your life. Please share with us, write your blogs, talk with others here. Like I said in the past we are all friends here. Yes we are going to get those on the site that are devotees and such, if they bother you report them so they can get dumped.
As a final thought I want to ask again, how are you doing? What is going on in your life? Talk to me, I really want to know.
Big Bear Hugs and loads of luv to all!!
