Sorry For The Delay

Hi Everyone;

Thanks for sticking it out with me y’all.  I am going to try to have a new post up on Friday.  I deeply apologize for the delay in writing a new post.  I am dealing with a particularly painful neurological disorder.  Let me paint you a picture…

About 12 years ago, I was heavily involved in playing softball.  I was a catcher.  Because we were in a beer league, there was really no call for wearing a face mask.  During a game I was catching and a ball came off the back of the bat and hit me in the face.  It knocked me out cold.  When I came too, my first question was “Do I have all my teeth?”  Everyone said yes. I then asked if my teeth went through my lip.  Everyone said no.  I got helped up and looked at the blood down the front of my jersey.  I was fine with that and said, “Well, then. Let’s play.”  Of course they wouldn’t let me and I got benched.  I ended up having a very fat lip and a what turned out to be a massive concussion.  I was not even able to drive for 10 days to ensure I wouldn’t have any seizures.  The end result was permanent neurological damage…a disorder called Trigeminal Neuralgia.  That means I have a compression on the central nerve of the brain.  It causes extreme facial pain in some.  In fact it is nick named the suicide disease.  For me, it is a constant ache in my ear and jaw with intermittent shooting pain.  The medication I am usually on controls it well.  However, this flare up has now been going on for over a week and has required a booster.  What causes a flare up?  Weather changes, stress…anything.  It is hard to pin point.  My GP is in the process of trying to get me in to see a neurologist so we can see if the condition has worsened.

Bare with me, everybody!  I am planning a come back!  It is just taking a bit longer than I was hoping.
