Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

November Nerves
Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.
Paulo Coelho

I know that I’m a superstitious idiot but I’ve been feeling The Sword of Domiciles hanging over me for a while. If you don’t know November has not been a real lucky month for me the last few years.

November 17, 2003 my mom was in the hospital for respiratory problems and was being sent home the next morning cured. She died alone in the evening of a massive stroke.

November 2004 I had to go in for a cervical spine fusion because I was losing nerve function in my arms. I was off work for about 5 months but I did start blogging and met a lot of the people I still read on the web.

November 2005 I was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis a condition that means my over strong immune system was attacking my own liver as a foreign body. Taking steroids for it and got all the worst side effects. In the hospital twice and my first ambulance ride. The worst was the revelation to The Boss and my daughters that I wasn’t superman. I still think I am but that pesky Kryptonite is everywhere now. I missed four months of work this time.

November 2006 I thought I was going to break the curse this year but on the day after Thanksgiving My Dad died. I did feel good that I got to talk to him and tell him I loved him a couple of days before he died in the hospital. First time I told him and first time he told me. We were so close.

November 2007…

Wish me luck. 

What To Do
If perchance I dream a dream and in it you have not been seen. I'll cry real tears, I'll really weep because I lost a good nights sleep.
I wrote this 35 years ago and it still applies to my friends.
I am useles when they are in trouble.
Then again I could still be full of shit. :)
