Hello World!

Patience is a virtue, or so they say. I appear to lack that virtue. Because when it comes to waiting for something, especially when it stops me from doing what I want to do, I get too impatient and frustrated. I want to kick something.

When it comes to healing, at times it is two steps forward and then one step backwards again. And so is it with my cervical herniation. I was delighted when I was able to do modest things again this week, without agony lancing through my upper shoulder every time I moved. Each day, a little bit of my normal life returned.

But when I woke up today, I released things had worsened again. Not horribly so, and not like last week, but enough to frustrate me. I am back to moving slowly like a snail or turtle, being aware of every movement I make (lest I transgress and am punished by pain) and trying to stay upbeat. The last thing is the most difficult.

I know intellectually that healing takes time. But Iím eager to get back to life. Isnít it funny to look forward to washing dishes and cleaning a dirty floor?

Life is strange that way. It takes losing something to make one appreciate it. Iím sure from now on, when I do formerly annoying chores, instead of being bored by them, part of me will be grateful that I can do them.

Even so, I wish I could magically whisk myself away to the 23rd or 24th century. I bet Dr. McCoy or Dr. Crusher could fix this in no time flat. Without surgery too!

Hereís to the future, when hopefully things that vex us today wonít be a problem. But for now, I guess Iíd better work on acquiring that virtue of patience. Iím going to need it.

Jolan Tru,
