It’s more complicated than you thought:



Here’s another DST rant:

Unhappy Hour

Daylight Saving Time: A bad idea.

Thankfully my daughter is a lot more responsible than I am. She woke me up at oh dark thirty to receive my antibiotic dose. My meds make me exhausted most of the time so just keeping track of normal time is hard enough, then they threw in this DST crap and really confused me. I have to have an anti-biotic 3 times a day, which sounds simple enough until you realize they put it into a picc line. It’s like having an open IV that starts by your elbow and ends up just short of going into your heart.

Wow, DBS, that kinda sounds serious.

For some reason, I can’t comment on your ‘Last Two Months’ post.
Oh, I see comments are closed, probably a good idea with all the medical terminology.

Ow, DBS. Can’t imagine the pain. Sure hope the worst is far behidn you.

I visited Hemet many times 25-30 years ago; can’t believe that it’s turned bad like that.

Hemet is like LA now, just smaller. The good news is at least you can get a good carnitas burrito there now. I’m not sure what the deal with comments is. I didn’t purposefully turn them off, but on the other hand my thinking is kind of shady the last couple of weeks. Maybe I’m on double secret probation for my negative comment about My worst fear is that I might not get better. I’m weaker than a six year old child right now. I can’t work like that and I wouldn’t want my company to keep on if I can’t earn my keep. My daughter suggested I go back to school to be a substance abuse counselor. We had a lot of time together to talk in the hospital. My wife or my daughter stayed with me almost the entire time so Christina got a chance to know what daddy was like before I met Jesus. I told her about the good (not much) and the bad (pretty much all of it) and that there’s hope for change in every person if they put their trust in God.

Geof: while sitting in a CVS waiting area I started talking with the lady next to me, something kind of rare apparently, most people seemed to avoid conversation, but she was the kind that wanted to talk and at least her voice was distracting me from my pain. She told me about how she retired to Hemet 20 years ago. Six months back she woke up with a guy sitting on top of her. She instinctively grabbed at his face and pulled his mask off. He started stabbing her pretty much from one end of her body to the other. He even cut her hamstrings so this sweet old lady that could barely walk was even more crippled up. She spent six months I the hospital and they haven’t caught the piece of crap yet so she’s scared to sleep in her own home. It was heart breaking.

My inlaws also had their neighbor across the street in their very middle class neighborhood suddenly go crazy and murdered his step-dad and step-brother with a night. Not sure if he was crazy or drugs or both. There’s a ton of meth in Hemet and even nicer neighborhoods have the gang banger graffiti in them. It’s just sad what’s happened to that place. My inlaws offered to give me their home when they passed away and I said no thank you. It’s a beautiful home, but I hate the idea of living in California again.

I honestly think that the only good part of our vacation was my daughter, wife and father-in-law went on a whale watching trip that I had planned and they got to see a pod of orcas up close. Seeing whales isn’t unusual, but orcas are unusual enough that they mentioned it on the evening news. I guess I liked seeing my relatives too of course, but I was primarily a prisoner in my own body while we were out there. I spent a lot of time playing Persona 4 Golden on my Vita when I wasn’t staring at my feet sitting in an easy chair.

Get better DBS! Prayers are up. Ping me when you can do some CoD. That will be good therapy. Especially the screaming and cursing part about ‘campers’. 🙂

Campers? Hey I just hide in strategic places and save my energy while you guys run around.
