This blog is for me. Short and simple. I could write this on a napkin and tuck it in a drawer for all it’s worth, but I won’t. I’m going to publish my story here. Perhaps someone will be entertained by the story of my life to this point. Maybe they will get some inspiration (best case scenario), or maybe they’ll use it as a life lesson of what not to do. Honestly, I don’t think I care all that much. I’m writing this for myself.
So, what is this blog all about. Well, that is a long story…
It starts with my gradual decent into unhealthy lifestyle that ultimately devolves to the point where I decided to allow someone (abeit an incredibily talented individual) to take a scapel to my skin, muscle and bone to correct a problem with my achillies tendon. I can’t tell you how much I wish I had a cool “well I was making a diving leap to score the game winning point when I planted my left foot wrong and felt a SNAP!…” tale to tell. Nope – nothing that dramatic or interesting. But that’s for later.
I’ll elaborate over the coming pages as to how I think I got here and why I’m in this state. Once you’re caught up to date and we’re on the same page, then we’ll walk together through the rest of my recovery and hopefully the restoration of my health.
This is a story with a beginning a middle but and a working ending. Maybe I’ll keep your interest over the coming months and maybe years to keep reading, but then again, I guess I just don’t really care.
Let me make this clear from the very begining – this is for me. I need somewhere to write up how I’m feeling, to try and justify my past mis-behavior and perhaps do a bit of self-evaluation and maybe a bit of critical thinking. I need somewhere to bitch, moan and whine without completely alienating myself from my family and especially my insanely patient and loving wife. I need somewhere to pour my heart into without judgement (or at least any that I care about). This is it.
I know, selfish. Sorry – I’m just human. But, I hope that I piqued your interest. Maybe you just want to know what happened to me that made me put fingers to keyboard and write a story. Perhaps you want to know if I can pull through and get my shit together. Maybe you’re just curious. Whatever the reason, welcome.
So, if I piqued your interest, if you want to know what I went through, how I’m feeling as I heal and recover from a crazy-ass surgery, how I intend on correcting my path and what the journey contains, well – Stick with me and click on the next link.
Otherwise, hey. thanks for reading this far- have a great life.
